NISMO Juke arrives in UK showrooms
The most powerful Juke of all time has finally arrived in showrooms.
The Juke NISMO RS, priced from £21,995 OTR marks the eighth new Nissan model to be introduced in 2014. Nissan’s multi-award-winning compact crossover offers more performance, a sharper chassis set-up, more powerful brakes and extra equipment, making the new RS more extreme and focused.
Optional equipment on the RS version includes special Recaro sports “bucket” seats and the Safety Pack that includes the following:
- Xenon headlamps
- Nissan’s Around View Monitor and Safety Shield
- Lane Departure Warning
- Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection giving visual and audible warnings to avoid potential collisions.
Three exterior colours for the new Juke NISMO RS include – Storm White, Pearl Black and Blade Silver – with a single bespoke interior treatment.
Despite its performance potential, the Juke NISMO remains highly practical. 2WD versions now benefit from a 40 per cent increase in carrying capacity, for example, thanks to subtle reshaping of the luggage area, while a two-stage floor and fold flat rear seats make the space even more flexible.
Developed with NISMO’s extensive global motorsport experience, the NISMO RS features a 1.6-litre DIG-T engine that develops 218PS (160kW), while torque in two-wheel drive/manual transmission versions is 280Nm.
2WD models benefit from the addition of a mechanical Limited Slip Differential (LSD) on the driven front wheels, while four-wheel drive models feature Nissan’s advanced Torque Vectoring System as standard, along with Nissan’s Xtronic transmission, 250Nm of torque and standard-fit steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts.
