Now, the thing you’re probably wondering most about is its design. The previous iteration’s quirky look was, well, divisive. Some liked it for its uniqueness, while others deemed it too unconventional for their tastes. This time, the new Juke sports a more conventional V-Motion grille up front, bringing the exterior styling more in line with the rest of the lineup.
However, it does retain the combination of slim and round headlamps, although the former is much smaller and sleeker now. Present, too, are the beefy haunches and slim shoulders. The crossover is now slightly bigger overall at 4,210mm long, 1,595mm high, and 1,800mm wide. Capping the look are 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, you get a floating eight-inch touchscreen display and the standard flat-bottomed Nissan steering wheel. Optional are Alcantara or leather upholstery. Features include the Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety tech, the ProPilot driver assist system, and NissanConnect infotainment system. Powering the all-new Juke is a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo mill capable of 115hp, paired to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch ’box with driving mode selector.
If we had to guess, we reckon it won’t be long before this popular subcompact crossover makes its way to the Philippines. Will you be reserving a unit?
