Announced back in 2010, the Nissan Juke featured a design that wasn’t in line with the aesthetics its competition touted. The updated version doesn’t look like other cars for sale in Dubai either. The experts at CarSwitch.com have compiled this guide to help you learn everything you need to know about its “wacky quotient” and the new upgrades!
Nissan Juke 2020: Upgrades, Changes, and More
First, let us talk about the design. If you spot anything with those massive round headlights, then congratulations, you’re looking at the 2020 Nissan Juke. Of course, not everyone will appreciate the design and we also feel Nissan deliberately choose a polarizing aesthetic, because it knew this approach would most likely give it the most ‘eyeballs’, even if it meant a lot of people won’t appreciate the efforts the company made. Fortunately, Nissan has made it much easier to personalize your purchase because not only does the automaker offer a set of 11 colours to choose from, you can also decide which finish the roof colour should be, just to stand out from the crowd.
Surprisingly, there’s only one engine that’s been announced with the Nissan Juke 2020. It’s a one-litre three-cylinder turbo that’s capable of delivering 115 horsepower. While that might not sound exciting to your ears, here’s what will. According to different sources, the new engine is a whopping 23kg lighter than before, meaning less energy will be required by the car to move around different places. This can also result in better mileage, but Nissan hasn’t provided specific details on the latter.
The new engine can either be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed automatic one. If you wish to know the differences from the previous engine, here they are. It was a 1.6-liter turbo with 188 horsepower. There’s quite a stark difference between the two specifications right? We believe Nissan decided to make this choice because it wanted to provide better mileage to owners. What compromises will it make in the overall driving experience, we’ll find out later.
Other changes focus more on comfort. The Nissan Juke 2020 features more leg and headroom than its predecessor, with sources stating that cargo space has now jumped up by a decent 20 percent, making the total come to a 420-litre figure. Some configurations offer an automated emergency braking, along with an assistant for maintaining lanes, traffic signs and monitoring blind spots.
Other additions include ProPilot on the 2020 Juke. This feature is expected to maintain proper speed and keep the car in the right lane. If you have more cash to burn, you can always get the top-end models, which include an 8.0-inch display that comes running either Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto.
