The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Motors Today -

SMITHS Nis­san, of Sturrock Way, Peter­bor­ough, is one of the first deal­er­ships in the coun­try to re­ceive a sneak pre­view of the new Juke.

A one third scale model of the new car, will be de­liv­ered to the deal­er­ship next week, giv­ing cus­tomers a taste of what is to come be­fore sales start in Septem­ber.

The dis­play will fea­ture a touch screen in­for­ma­tion cen­tre where cus­tomers can find out more about this new com­pact cross­over.

Part rugged SUV, part funky sports car, Juke is a ground-break­ing com­pact cross­over pro­vid­ing buy­ers with a stylish al­ter­na­tive to the con­ven­tional ur­ban hatch­back.

Bri­tish built, the Juke brings ex­cit­ing ad­vance­ments in en­gine technology, cabin de­sign and tur­bocharged ef­fi­ciency.

It is a dis­tinc­tive com­bi­na­tion of SUV tough­ness and sport­ing style, with prices start­ing at £12,795.

“We’re thrilled to be one of the first UK deal­ers to get a sneak pre­view of the new Juke,” said Paul Char­man, gen­eral man­ager at Smiths Nis­san. “The model dis­play is a novel way of al­low­ing prospec­tive cus­tomers to get a real feel for what is a fresh, cheeky and en­er­getic new cross­over.”

Avail­able in three en­gine sizes: 115bhp 1.6 petrol, 187bhp 1.6 petrol turbo and 109bhp 1.5 diesel and nine colours, the Juke boasts a dis­tinc­tive body, raised ride height and the op­tion of four-wheel drive with torque vec­tor­ing.

In­side, the strik­ing cen­tre con­sole is in­spired by a mo­tor­cy­cle fuel tank fin­ished in high gloss with large twin chrome-ringed di­als mark­ing out the in­stru­ment bin­na­cle, while the fa­cia also fea­tures colour dis­plays for the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem.

With seat­ing for five and a rear bench that splits and folds flat, plus a hatch­back boot with hid­den stor­age space, the Juke is both roomy and prac­ti­cal.

Cus­tomers will also be able to see the new Juke for real on Au­gust 7 when one of the first pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cles lands at the deal­er­ship.

The Juke is a ground-break­ing com­pact cross­over pro­vid­ing a stylish al­ter­na­tive to the con­ven­tional ur­ban hatch­back.
