New Nissan Juke Got a Powerful Three-Cylinder Engine

The 2020 Nissan Juke’s base engine develops almost 120 hp.

The all-new Nissan Juke has been recently officially unveiled in Europe. This once-very popular crossover has finally changed generations.

The model received not only modern technologies and new design, but also a 3-cylinder turbocharged engine.

The DIG-T unit is currently the only one in the second-generation Juke lineup. The 1.0-liter engine developing up to 117 hp comes standard.

Frankly, this is not 200 hp produced by the hot Ford Fiesta ST‘s same-displacement 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine, but the power is enough for such a small SUV.

The engine combines either with a manual transmission or a dual-clutch automatic one (DCT) working in one of three modes (eco, standard or sports).

The specific figures for the fuel efficiency of the DIG-T engine have not been announced yet. Nissan promises “efficiency and refinement”, as well as many pleasure on the road.

The new Nissan Juke kept itself waiting. The first-generation model spent almost a decade on the market and, with all its impressiveness, has clearly failed in recent years.

The previous Juke could no longer compete in the fast-growing small SUV segment. The Renault Captur, Peugeot 2008, Seat Arona and other new players quickly forced the Juke out.

The 2020 Nissan Juke has every chance to restore the status quo. Not without reason, the company has held its presentation in five European cities at once – Paris, London, Barcelona, Milan and Cologne.
