Nissan Finally Launches 2nd Generation Of Its Juke Crossover
The long-awaited next generation Nissan Juke will be introduced in 2019.
Once a best-seller in the compact SUV segment, it desperately needs a change of generations and the restoration of market positions. For example, by the end of 2018, the Nissan Juke in the United States was at the bottom of small SUV ranking with a 93-percent decline in sales.
The 2020 Juke has all the chances to return the crossover to its topping position. It is built on the modular CMF-B platform – the same as the fifth-generation Renault Clio’s. In addition to improving the interior ergonomics, we can expect arrival of hybrid versions and even an all-electric one.
The automaker promises only a wide choice of engines so far.
For those eight years during which the first-generation Nissan Juke has been produced, safety technologies stepped forward. The new model, of course, will meet current trends.
Meanwhile, a whole cohort of competitors waits the 2020 Nissan Juke on the market: from the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3 to the European Volkswagen T-Cross and Renault Captur. A new Fiesta-based Ford crossover is being developed as well.
