Tight­en­ing it up

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

The Juke Nismo body is 40 per­cent stiffer than the reg­u­lar Juke and re­in­forced in 26 places. Spring and damper rates have been in­creased at both ends (10 per­cent stiffer all round for the front-drive man­ual; stiff­ened by 15 per­cent at the front and 10 per­cent at the rear for the CVT AWD), and front-drive ver­sions score a he­li­cal lim­ited-slip dif­fer­en­tial. Body con­trol is ad­e­quate on 18in wheels, though the sus­pen­sion can run out of travel over big­ger com­pres­sions.
