Juke Nismo RS is the Daddy of all Compact Crossovers


Nissan’s first Nismo RS model has debuted at the LA Auto Show.

Mercedes has the AMG range and more hardcore Black Series, BMW has M Performance and the M line, and Audi the S and more potent RS models. With the expansion of the Nismo-tuned model range, Nissan has decided to make things more exclusive by launching a new line of range-topping ‘RS’ products. Unveiled this week in LA, the 2014 Juke Nismo RS leads the charge, featuring upgrades that add more power, aggressive styling and a sporty cabin inspired by the mental Nissan Juke R.

The Nismo RS keeps the stock Juke’s 1.6-liter turbo-four but with beefed up internals to handle the 215 hp and 210 lb-ft of torque that’s generated by the model with a new performance six-speed manual and front-wheel drive. Output dips to 211 hp and 184 lb-ft with the CVT and all-wheel drive. Torque vectoring, suspension, electric power steering and brakes have all been upgraded, and the Nismo RS rides on a set of 18-inch alloys. Inside, special touches include Nismo-branded Recaro front seats, an Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel and RS-badged dials. Available only in black, silver or white, the 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS will hit showrooms early next year.
