At first glance the Nissan JUKE is clearly in a design league of its own, in the smaller car segment, setting a trend for others to follow. It has a sporty coupe sloping rear roofline, high waistline, sleek hidden door handles and predatory grill.
Add to that the broad wheel arches (with 17” wheels and tyres) and boomerang-like rear lights and you are set to turn heads wherever you go.
The Nissan JUKE’s design is largely based on that of traditional rally cars with its sculpted hood and unique twin headlights. Even its interior gauges are influenced by motorsport styling while the motorbike inspired centre console (in a choice of red or metallic) is sure to add a dash of glam to an otherwise rugged predator with an SUV-feel thanks to its generous ground clearance.
Debuting with a first in the market, the JUKE’s integrated driver control (I-CON) system enables the driver to alternate from climate to drive mode. Driving preferences can be swapped from Sport, Normal or Eco mode. The JUKE’s tech savvy design also offers real time information from g-force, torque curve and fuel consumption.
It’s not all hardcore business though, there are plenty of luxuries too like the under floor secret storage compartment for those special valuables, 250l trunk capacity with a 60/10 splitting rear seat and a nearly flat cargo area provides massive room for active lifestyles.
The JUKE offers keyless entry, Bluetooth Handsfree, iPod, USB, MP4 compatibility, auxiliary input, Bluetooth audio streaming, 12v power socket and six speakers.
The JUKE is available in the 1.6 Acenta, 1.6 Acenta+ and 1.6 DIG-T Tekna (with optional leather interior). Follow Nissan JUKE on Twitter @JukeEnergy or on the Nissan JUKE Facebook Page.
