Nissan Juke Transformed Into A Cute Little Off-Road Monster

The Nissan Juke may be had with all-wheel drive in certain grades, but even so, it’s far from being capable of challenging some steep slopes.

This example, though, seems a lot more [email protected] than the stock model, and if its looks are any indication, it could handle off-road adventures much more easily.

Modified by Autobot Autoworks, the subcompact crossover features new wheel arches, extra plastic cladding, and some other work carried on the outside. These are joined by the auxiliary lights mounted on the roof and in the front bumper, new wheels shod with chunky all-terrain tires, and an eye-catching matte red wrap, among others.

Named ‘Project Lady Bug’, said Juke sits higher than the regular models, which helps when veering off the beaten path.

While various tuners continue to launch different upgrade packages for the Juke, Nissan is working on the second generation. It will reportedly arrive in the coming months to replace the F15, which is currently 8 years old, and could be underpinned by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi V-platform.

Shifting towards the new architecture will slightly increase the footprint and allow it to adopt new engines from the rest of the brand’s family, including the turbo’d 0.9-liter three-cylinder and 1.2-liter four-cylinder units. Renault’s 1.5-liter dCi is said to be carried over, probably with a few updates to keep CO2 emissions as low as possible.
