Default 2020 Nissan Juke Back In US Lineup

The Nissan Juke bowed out at the end of the 2017 model year but a successor is coming, a prototype for which has just been spotted.

The original Juke was widely criticized for its polarizing styling when it debuted at the start of the decade, but the vehicle managed to carve out its own niche and the formula of a small but striking design has since been replicated by rivals for their own subcompact and compact crossovers.

Our spy shots of the redesigned Juke show a familiar shape but with details updated to match Nissan's latest design themes. Specific details include the slit-like headlights, floating roof, and rectangular-shaped taillights. Nissan's Gripz concept from 2015 hints at what's to come.

Underpinning the vehicle is the CMF-B platform, the subcompact version of the modular CMF design of the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance. The platform made its debut in the 2014 Nissan Rogue.

It isn't clear what powertrains are planned, but you can count on a range of inline-4s in both gasoline and diesel flavors, though only the former will be offered in the United States. A hybrid option should also be available at some point, though sadly we're unlikely to see a repeat of the original Juke's GT-R-powered Juke-R variant.

Look for the redesigned Juke to debut later this year as a 2020 model.

you’ve read our “10 Cars We Hate That You Probably Love” article published at the beginning of the year, you already know by now that yours truly is not fond of the Juke’s eccentric styling. I do applaud Nissan for having the courage to come out with such a polarizing design, which has certainly worked as the Juke is still one of the most successful models in its class despite the fact it’s been around for nine years. It was eliminated from the U.S. lineup to make room for the Kicks, but it’s still going strong in other markets.

Here we have the completely new Juke hiding its production body underneath a full camo wrap. The thin disguise allows us to see some of the details, including the sleek headlights representing a major departure from those of the outgoing model. The lower circular lights are still there, but these appear to be much smaller than before, and in both instances, we’re likely dealing with an all-LED setup.

Since we’re on the subject of lights, the ones at the back are also completely new and don’t have anything in common with the taillights of the outgoing Juke. Maybe the camo is playing tricks on us, but the boomerang shape seems to be gone, and now the clusters are extending onto the tailgate to make the small crossover seem wider when viewed from behind.

The side profile also reveals quite a few changes as the mirrors have been moved slightly lower on the doors and the upper character line appears to be extending from front to rear. Carried over from the current Juke, the rear door handles are once again mounted up high near the C-pillars in a setup that likely won’t be to everyone’s tastes. The greenhouse has also been altered, but we are afraid to report it doesn’t seem to be bigger than before, so visibility won’t be great.

The All-New Juke Is Inching Closer:

Styling aside, the second-gen Nissan Juke is expected to ride on the same platform as the new Renault Clio and will be offered with 1.0- and 1.3-liter turbocharged gasoline engines accompanied by a 1.5-liter diesel. Should you be interested in all-wheel drive, the more expensive versions with the automatic transmission are going to get AWD.

A plug-in hybrid powertrain is believed to be on the agenda as well, complete with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, an electric motor, and a 9.8-kWh battery pack. The latter will have enough juice for a yet-to-be-confirmed electric range of roughly 20 miles (32 kilometers), which isn’t all that great. Nissan has previously hinted about a pure electric derivative, but it remains to be seen whether the Juke will go after the Hyundai Kona EV, Kia e-Niro, and the recently unveiled Peugeot e-2008.

The switch to the CMF platform will pay dividends in terms of the available space inside the cabin as the new Juke is expected to grow in size and feature a longer wheelbase. Better packaging brought by the more modern hardware will also boost the cargo capacity, while a completely redesigned dashboard will host an up-to-date infotainment system and more tech than before.

The revamped Sunderland-built Juke should debut before the end of the year and go on sale early 2020 to replace a model that has managed to generate more than one million sales as of July 2018.

What if Nissan brought us the IDX as an EV. Make it RWD and mid engine = Money shot. Sort of like Honda Did with the Honda E.

I’d rock a Juke if it looked like the iDX and had that optional AMG tweaked 2 liter 4 putting out 300 hp.

I have such mixed feelings about... I really wanted the IDX and still do, but have no need or desire for an EV. But I have to agree as a re-launching it would be pretty cool. Call it a Datsun and I may have to get one.

Seems kind of redundant to the poorly named Kicks.

Nissan's line up is so boring.. I mean GT-R is fine, but only comes in AT and old. 370Z's are a joke and nothing else they have impresses me.

I'm with you. I have a soft spot for Nissan's of old. From the original Hardbody to my sideswiped 240sx that gave up its motor to a destroyed drain cover.

Nissan just needs something that excites people. Their current design language is just horrid and Nissan has nothing on the market that is cheap and fun to drive.. They could easily pull people back into the fold with A RWD IDX EV. Granted it would lack a proper ICE motor, but damn it I want a dime and the Nismo IDX was their best proper design in a long time. Including the current 350-70 and GTR. It just looked good. (sort of like the Honda E)

Since you have so much love for Datsun. I thought you would love to see some great Datsun Pron that is owned by Adam Carolla "the man show:

Tend to agree. There was a time in the mid 2000's when I kinda liked their styling language, but it feels like they've been just lazily iterating on that language since then; and some time a long way back it was time for a completely new language. Continuing to evolve the same old language and shoehorning the Xterra grill on everything was a stupid move.

But it got worse. Slapping a ****ty CVT in everything, bastardizing the iconic Nismo name on the Nismo Juke, watered down Nismo 370Z (compared to the Nismo 350Z), and horrific Nismo Sentra added fuel to the idiotic fire. They went from one of the better Japanese brands (particularly in terms of performance) to a lame duck outdated fleet sales brand not incomparable to the domestics.

Even as someone who believes many of the comments on this board too often over-prioritize wishful enthusiast preferences on pedestrian automaker products, I think Nissan is overdue to try and inject some fun into their lineup. Especially as there is new technology and fun at the less-relevant-than-ever Infiniti sister arm. They really need to embrace more dynamic styling, more driving feel, and drag the CVTs and ancient VQ motor behind the barn to be shot.

Yeah, but the old S2000 and the hatch STI from the same timeframe still impress over a 370Z.. well, at least to me they do.

Nissan has absolutely nothing I want right now.. so sad.. including their Infiniti line up. Q50/Q60 yawn.. QX50 yawn..

I would never buy a Nissan now (in the US), with Renault eyeing Chrysler. Nissan could easily get sent to the corner in the US.

Default 2020 Nissan Juke Makes Surprise Show Debut In Sofia

2020 Nissan Juke Makes Surprise Show Debut In Sofia

Euro sales kick off next month.

The second generation Nissan Juke made its official online debut in early September but the funky crossover was not in Frankfurt a few weeks later. Instead, Nissan has decided to display the vehicle publicly for the first time during the 2019 Sofia Motor Show, which is the final European auto show from the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers' (OICA) 2019 calendar. We were there to shoot the new Juke right before its market launch on the Old Continent scheduled for next month.

Displayed in Sofia is a fully equipped example with leather and Alcantara interior, Bose premium audio system, heated seats, decoration inserts for the bumpers, and 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels. Under the hood is the company’s new 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, good for 117 horsepower (87 kilowatts) mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Optionally available on most markets will be a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

As you can see from the attached images, the exterior design of the new Juke is easier on the eyes. Not only that, but the proportions and larger overall dimensions of the crossover give it a roomier cabin with 2.3 inches (5.8 centimeters) more legroom compared to the outgoing model and roughly 0.5 inches (1.1 cm) more headroom. Behind the passengers you'll find 15 cubic feet (422 liters) of cargo space, which is a 20 percent increase over the model’s predecessor.

As mentioned, the new Juke goes on sale late next month with prices starting at £17,395 for the base Visia trim in the United Kingdom, which translates into roughly $21,885 at the current rates. The range-topping Premiere Edition will set you back at least £23,995 ($30,147). Deliveries are expected to begin towards the end of the year or early in 2020. A performance Nismo version could be planned for a launch later during the model's lifecycle.

For someone reason I’ve kinda liked the Juke styling. I’m sure it drives like **** though.
