GENEVA (March 7, 2018) – Nissan has announced a number of new features and design upgrades to its popular Juke compact crossover. They enhance both the exterior and interior of the car, which made its public debut on the Nissan stand at the Geneva Motor Show.
The improvements create a contemporary new look for the Juke’s front end. They include a striking new dark chrome V-motion grille, dark headlamp interior and dark turn indicators on the door mirrors. LED fog lamps are now standard from Acenta grade.
Three new 16-inch and 18-inch alloy wheel designs have been added to the Juke range, also from Acenta grade. For customers looking to add a dash of design flair to their car, the wheels on Tekna grade can be personalised with coloured inserts.
Coloured body parts, including front and rear bumper finishers, doors side sills and mirror caps, are also available through the personalisation program. This is an optional extra on N-Connecta and Tekna grades.
Two vibrant new body colours – Vivid Blue and Chestnut Bronze – further extend customer choice on Juke.
Boosting the appeal of the Nissan Juke with music fans is BOSE Personal audio. This award-winning automotive sound system delivers an immersive 360° listening experience through BOSE digital signal processing and six high-performance speakers.
These include the two pioneering BOSE UltraNearfield™ speakers built into the driver’s seat head rest. The system is unique to Nissan.
Improvements to the interior include the choice of two new personalisation colours – Energy Orange and Power Blue. These further enhance the design of the central console, air vents, door inserts and seat upholstery. Gloss black interior personalisation remains available. Interior personalisation is standard on N-Connecta and Tekna grades.
There is also a higher grade of leather on the steering wheel, plus improved visual clarity on the combimeter thanks to a new white-on-black information display.
Ken Ramirez, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Nissan Europe, commented: “The Nissan Juke is the pioneer of the B-segment crossover and is today one of our most established and much-loved models. These new features further extend customer choice, enhancing the distinctive design for which Juke is best known.”
