Proving that even the Swiss can’t develop a Juke-worthy bug spray.
The love-it-or-hate-it Nissan Juke, and its performance-oriented RS derivative from Nismo, have been facelifted and updated for 2015 and unveiled in Geneva. Nissan’s CUV - which has been raising debate between fans and critics from its very first day on the road - gets refreshed styling with crispy, angular lines and new headlights. The crossover is also given Nissan’s new V-shaped grille with lots of chrome, new interior colors and a 40 percent larger cargo hold.
At this European show, Nissan was stingy with details regarding technical specs for the US market. European customers, however, will be given a choice between a 1.2-liter turbo making 113 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque, and a 188 horsepower 1.6-liter DIG-T engine. Release dates and engines for America will be published at a later date, as will the specification for the Nismo RS model.
