The arrival of the new-generation Nissan Juke is expected in 2020. The small SUV will retain its distinctive appearance, but will be modernized under skin and get more upmarket interior.
Next year the 2020 Nissan Juke will be unveiled. The popular crossover has been on sale for a decade. To be able to compete with up-to-date rivals, such as the VW T-Cross, Hyundai Kona or the Seat Arona, it needs refinement.
We believe the Juke’s distinctive features liked by customers will remain: split-level headlights, inflated wheel arches and a sloping window line.
Under the hood
The next-gen Juke will share the platform with the new Renault Clio, as well as the plug-in hybrid powertrain. Expect a 1.6-liter petrol (gasoline) engine and a 9.8-kWh battery, providing about 20 miles (32 km) of the electric-only range.
The Nissan Juke’s motor range will likely include gasoline units: a 1.3-liter engine met on other models (the Mercedes-Benz A-Class or the Nissan Qashqai) and a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged one. Gearbox options will be two manual (5- and 6-speed) and a continuously variable transmission.
The new Nissan Juke should offer more space for rear passengers and cargo. The trunk will be enlarged to 400 liters.
Improvements in the cabin concern trim materials of better quality, a newer infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, new connectivity features, upgraded safety pack (with Nissan’s ProPILOT system).
