New Nissan Juke
Nissan has released prices and first product details for the new Nissan Juke range. The new urban crossover is scheduled for Australian release this month with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at $21 990 ($24 965 driveaway).
This exciting, fun-to-drive car is expected to bring many new customers to Nissan, Nissan Australia marketing executive general manager Peter Clissold said.
‘‘I’m confident Australian buyers of small SUVs will find the new Juke to be exceptional value. Each grade in the Juke model range has a compelling mix of standard equipment in a vehicle rich in stand-out styling and dynamic performance.’’
The Nissan Juke has been popular in overseas markets and is anticipated to earn Nissan an even greater share of Australia’s small SUV segment, 20 per cent of which is already occupied by Nissan Dualis.
The new Nissan Juke combines the dynamic style of a sporty hatchback with the proportions of an SUV. Its captivating look is underlined by a variety of striking features, such as its unique headlight design and motorcycle-inspired interior centre console. nsole.
Nissan Australia will launch two more innovative and exciting new models by the end of the year, the new Pathfinder SUV and the Altima mid-size sedan, both set to arrive in the next two months.
Australian customers will be able to choose from two engines in the Nissan Juke range.
The entry-grade Juke ST (twowheel drive) is powered by a smooth and efficient 1.6 litre four-cylinder petrol engine.
Drivers seeking more performance can opt for the Juke ST-S (two-wheel drive) or Ti-S (all-wheel drive), both powered by a 1.6-litre DIG (direct injection gasoline) turbocharged petrol engine.
