What Secrets Is The Nissan Juke Hiding Behind Its Funky Face?

Teaser / Comments

The new Nissan Juke will be revealed on September 3.

While the original Juke is still on sale in Europe, Nissan discontinued the funky crossover in the US and replaced it with the more conventional-looking Kicks. Nine years after the original model debuted with its polarizing design, Nissan is preparing to launch a new second-generation Juke.

We’ll get to see it on September 3rd when it makes its world debut, but teasers and spy shots suggest it will be an evolution of its predecessor’s quirky styling. Nissan has released a new teaser previewing the upcoming Juke’s styling, giving us a look at its funky face.

Like the original Juke, the new model will feature a split-headlight design, with slim daytime running lights and round headlights. Brightening the shadowy teaser image also gives us a clearer look at the new Juke's evolved styling.

So far, we know the new Juke will use the same platform as the Renault Clio and the next-generation Captur, which supports electrified powertrains. For the first time, this means a plug-in hybrid version will join the lineup with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor powered by a 9.8kWh battery. This setup should deliver an electric range of around 20 miles. Trunk capacity will also increase, as will rear passenger head and knee room, which was one of the original Juke’s main drawbacks.

Mild-hybrid and fully electric versions could also be in the cards, while the current model’s turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder gasoline and 1.5-liter diesel engines are expected to carry over. Expect the cabin to be updated with a new infotainment system with smartphone integration and Nissan’s ProPilot system. As standard, the new Nissan Juke will be offered with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive could also be an option for lower trims.

After its online debut on September 3, the second-generation Nissan Juke will be shown to the public at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show the same month.
