It’s one of the best compact crossover vehicles available and now the pioneering Nissan Juke has a range of new design and feature upgrades.

The latest model was unveiled at Geneva earlier this year with design improvements to the interior and exterior and new technology, including a Bose personal sound system.

The new model has a refreshed front end featuring a new grille as well as dark indicators and headlight interiors.

There are also new 16-inch alloy wheel designs, with the option of 18-inch wheels.

Engines for the Nissan Juke

Engines for the Nissan Juke include the responsive 1.2 litre petrol unit producing 115 PS and two versions of the 1.6 litre unit producing either 94 PS or 117 PS. The engines return around 48 mpg.

Alternatively, there is the excellent 1.5 litre dCI unit producing 110 PS and returning around 71 mpg.

Other models come with the firm’s dynamic control system, automatic air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control with speed limiter. Some models also have privacy glass and a USB port.

Further up the trims and there’s the NissanConnect infotainment system, rear parking camera, electrically folding door mirrors, push button start and part leather seats.

A completely new model of the Nissan Juke is apparently in the pipeline which will be cheaper to run and offer a hybrid version from launch.

Until then, the refreshed Nissan Juke is an impressive small SUV crossover offering great handling and lots of comfort.
