One of the strangest, but also the most successful models of Nissan, Juke, will get a second generation and it will also appear on the market in Europe, but with some delay
At Juke’s promotion in 2010, aggressive and atypical designs captured many fans, but also many opponents. But more importantly, Juke has paved the way for the promotion of subcompact crossover models that are becoming successful, both in Europe and outside the Old Continent.
The second generation of Juke was scheduled to debut this fall, but eventually the model was postponed to 2019. The new Juke is based on the Renault-Nissan CMF-B platform, which is also used in Nissan Qashqai, Nissan X-Trail, Renault Kadjar and Koleos, which means we should expect more shapes in the new Japanese crossover.
Along with that, there will be new, rich gamma engines, as well as a hybrid version. And in the near future Nissan will also offer a fully electric version of Juke. We should expect that at least part of the design of the new Juke will be close to that of the new Kicks, which the company sells outside of Europe.
Nissan’s chief designer and senior vice president Nakamura confirmed that the new Juke will be “different from the mass models”. In addition, Juke’s interior will also undergo serious changes and the model will get a new and better infotainment system and a rich range of personalization features.
In the beginning of 2019 we should expect a concept, which will be shown by the future Nissan Juke, and its premiere will be later in the year.
