Nissan Juke

nissan juke motability car - Nissan has announced a number of new features and design upgrades to the Juke for 2018, enhancing the exterior and interior of the car. The improvements create a contemporary new look for the Juke’s front end. They include a striking new dark chrome V-motion grille, dark headlamp interior and dark turn indicators on the door mirrors. LED fog lamps are now standard. The Juke has a 354 litres boot with a clever internal design with good space for rear passengers, if a little dark due to the small windows. The suspension has been smoothed out and the thirsty 1.6 litre petrol engine has been replaced with the super 115bhp 1.2 litre turbo used with great success in the new Qashqai.

 

The Nissan Juke is available in three trim levels, Acenta, BOSE Personal Edition and TeknaNissan-Juke-interior, Acenta cars get air-conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, a CD player, electric windows, daytime running lights and a tyre pressure monitoring system, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls and tinted rear windows. Opting for the BOSE Personal Edition grade, the Juke comes with the Nissan Connect infotainment system, colour reversing camera, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button start, electrically folding door mirrors, part-leather seats, automatic headlights and the BOSE Personal sound system which add speakers to the headrest. Top-spec Tekna models add extra luxury with heated leather seats, automatic headlights and wipers, lane departure and blind spot warnings.

 

Nissan Juke 2014 mobility car rearThe Engine choice for the Juke is between two Petrol’s and a single Diesel, the new 1.2 litre 115 DIG-T is a cracking free revving unit that has enough grunt to drive the Juke to 62 miles per hour in 10.8 seconds and on to 111 miles per hour, economy is good too with official figures claiming 50.4 miles per gallon. The 110bhp Renault shared diesel engine is the choice if fuel economy is your driving force as it offers a claimed economy of 70.6 miles per gallon and there have been no reports of DPF issues as the engine regenerates at lower revs than older diesels, 0-62 in 11.2 seconds proves it has all the torque required but it lacks the driving thrill of the lighter small petrol offering. The Automatic choice is limited to a 1.6 petrol paired to a CVT automatic gearbox with 117 brake horse power (44.8 mpg 0-62 11.5 seconds) or a four wheel drive 190bhp (available as a 6 speed manual with 2 wheel drive) that returns 38.4mph but can react 62 mph in 8.4 seconds.
