2015 Nissan Juke gets a facelift at Geneva Motor Show
Nissan used the 2014 Geneva Motor Show as a springboard to launch the new facelifted Juke. While the design may not appeal to everybody, the Juke has been a commercial success, especially in Europe.
The new Juke now incorporate Nissan’s trademark chrome front grille, along with 370Z-inspired headlight design. The turn signals have been embedded on the side-view mirrors and the rear lower portion gets a mesh design for a sportier look. There is a choice of new alloy-wheel designs. Also bi-xenon headlamps, opening sunroof and folding mirrors are now available on higher trims.
The interior remains is largely unchanged, with the biggest difference being a restructured trunk shape in the FWD model, which increases the storage capacity by an impressive 40 percent. Improvements have been made to the NissanConnect infotainment system as well.
For Europe at least, the 115 hp 1.6-litre engine has been dropped for a 4-cylinder 1.2-litre turbocharged unit producing 113 hp and 190 Nm of torque. Customers have the option of a 6-speed manual or an improved CVT transmission. Tweaks have also been made to the torque vectoring system to improve the all-wheel drive system in the 1.6-litre turbocharged model.
The 2015 Nissan Juke should make its debut in UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other GCC countries by the end of the year.
