Pricing and specs have been released for Nissan’s first all-new Juke in seven years, ahead of its Australian showroom arrival in June.
The new baby SUV is 75mm longer, 35mm wider and 30mm taller than the model it replaces, yet slots below the 184mm-longer Qashqai in Nissan’s five-strong SUV lineup.
Four model grades will be offered Down Under.
Opening the range is the ST, priced from $27,990 plus on-road costs. Standard equipment includes automatic LED headlights and tail-lights, an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reversing camera, 4.2-inch driver information display, 17-inch alloy wheels, manually-adjustable cloth front seats, and heated and power-folding exterior mirrors.
A wide array of safety technologies are fitted as standard, including autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, driver attention monitoring, traffic-sign recognition, rear parking sensors and a speed limiter.
All Australian-delivered Juke models seek power from a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, sending 84kW of power and 180Nm of torque to the front wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission – 1kW/10Nm down on the outgoing Juke ST’s 1.2-litre turbo-four.
Stop-start technology and wheel-mounted paddle shifters are standard across the range, enabling a 5.8L/100km combined fuel consumption claim and a modest 11.1-second 0-100km/h sprint time.
Stepping up to the ST+ – priced from $30,740 plus on-roads – adds LED fog lights, satellite navigation, front seat heating and front parking sensors.
Above the ST+ in the range is the ST-L, priced from $33,940 plus on-road costs. Additional equipment over the ST+ includes 19-inch alloy wheels, six-speaker sound system, ambient LED cabin lighting, electric parking brake, rear USB port, leather-accented steering wheel and gear shifter, leather-accented seat trim, and three drive modes: Eco, Standard and Sport.
The additional $3200 outlay also nets ST-L buyers adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, moving object detection and a 7.0-inch digital instrument display.
Sitting atop the 2020 Juke range is the Ti, priced from $36,490 plus on-road costs. Kit additions over the ST-L consist of quilted leather/Alcantara combination seat trim, Alcantara-trimmed dashboard, door panels and knee pads, a shark-fin antenna, unique 19-inch ‘Akari’ alloy wheels, illuminated sill plates, tyre-pressure monitoring, ‘follow-me-home’ headlights and an eight-speaker Bose Personal Plus premium sound system with speaker outlets in each front seat headrest.
The 2020 Nissan Juke will touch down in Australian showrooms in June.
