JUKE NISMO RS FOR NZ?

New Zealand LCV - - SHOWROOM / UTE -

Nis­san Aus­tralia has in­tro­duced the Juke Nismo RS, with a more ag­gres­sive grille, dif­fuser, red mir­ror caps and badg­ing. In­side is a Nismo gear­knob, Al­can­tara wheel with red stitch­ing and suede sports seats. Lim­ited to 240 units, it also gets more power via an ECU re­tune and free-flow­ing ex­haust, boost­ing its 1.6-litre turbo four to 160kW and 280Nm for the six-speed man­ual, and 157kW/250Nm for the CVT- com­pared to 140kW/240Nm for the stan­dard Turbo model. The man­ual also gets a shorter, faster fi­nal drive ra­tio and LSD. Low­ered, re­tuned sus­pen­sion and steer­ing keep it a to­tal pack­age. Pric­ing starts at $37,790AUD for the man­ual, just over $40kNZD in a straight con­ver­sion. Given the NZ Juke Turbo is $39,990, we could ex­pect closer to $50k for the Nismo RS if it lands.
