A Bold Urban Sport Cross

Juke 1The 2014 JUKE continues to build its reputation as one of the boldest designs and most spirited performers in the traditional B-segment hatchback field. Drawing its inspiration from a number of active lifestyle influences, including motorcycles and rally cars, JUKE features highly distinctive, sporty styling inside and out, along with unexpected levels of performance from a standard 188-horsepower 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGTM) turbo 4-cylinder engine and an advanced torque vectoring all-wheel drive (AWD) system – performance technology usually reserved for premium vehicles.

Built on Nissan’s proven global B-platform and offers generous ground clearance with standard 17-inch wheels and tires. Adding to the authentic SUV look is a broad shoulder line, large wheel arches and robust lower bodywork that seems to emerge from under the vehicle. The sporty, powerful front end is highlighted by the unique light treatment – with the headlight split into two distinct elements. The main lamps draw inspiration from rally car lights and the turn signals are integrated into the front fenders.  Fog lights are available depending on trim level.

Juke 2

Inside, JUKE’s interior is equally aggressive with bolstered front seats, a wide instrument panel and a unique center console inspired by a motorcycle fuel tank and finished in a high-gloss paint. The gearshift sits on top of the console, inspired by sports car driver/shifter positioning.

Another unique element of the JUKE interior is the Integrated Control (I-CON) system drive mode selector, which offers three different throttle/transmission/steering response settings – Normal for everyday driving, Sport for a more intense performance feel and Eco for maximum efficiency. It adjusts throttle, transmission (CVT only) and steering feel for the precise performance the driver desires.
