Second-Gen Nissan Juke Reportedly Set To Arrive Next Summer

Nissan was supposed to launch the all-new Juke this fall, but its introduction has reportedly been pushed back for the next year.

Expected to arrive in the summer of 2019, according to AutoExpress, the popular subcompact crossover will be underpinned by the Renault-Nissan CMF-B platform.

This will allow it to adopt new powertrains and it appears that a hybrid variant is in the works, too, with the range extender powertrain that debuted in the Gripz Concept three years ago.

While the electrified version is seen as “almost mandatory” by Nissan’s CCO Shiro Nakamura to help the automaker meet the stringer emission rules, petrol and diesel engines will also be available. Thus, the all-new Juke might arrive with a 1.5-liter diesel, as well as a small 1.0-liter petrol. A 1.6-liter four-banger with around 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW) is also allegedly on the cards.

Design wise, the new Juke will remain “edgy and less mainstream”, according to Nakamura, and will still be easily recognizable. The brand’s new front end is believed to be adopted by the small SUV, but some of the styling cues, such as the high-mounted headlights, should be retained.

With a slightly longer wheelbase, which will provide more space at the rear seat, the 2020 Juke will also get a heavily revised interior. Better quality plastics, along with an improved infotainment system, smartphone connectivity and a wide range of personalization options should also be available to customers.

Before its launch next summer, Nissan will reportedly preview the second-gen Juke with a concept car that should give us an idea at the production model.

The new Juke will, like the first-gen, be put together at the company’s Sunderland plant, in the UK, for the European market.

    remember when y’all reported that Nissan was KICKing out the Juke with the new Kicks model? guess that’s wrong.

  • EM1

    North American versions are from Japan, not UK. I wonder if it will return now that we have the “lovely Kicks” set in place. 🙁

  • Six_Tymes

    based on what I read previously the juke was done. I thought the Kicks replaced this? so, this news is surprising

  • Wandering_Spirit

    It has some charm in that ugliness. For a while i thought of getting a used one in Taiwan as a daily driver.

    Obligatory Nissan Joke joke.

  • MJ Coffey

    The Juke is a very nice and quirky looking car. Usually, I am not a fan of these wild designs, but, in this case, I am digging it.

  • Dennis James

    Can’t wait to see how much uglier it can get this time.


    european market doesn’t deserve the Kicks to be sold in Europe

  • StrangerGP

    Let’s hope they’ll spell the model name correctly this time.

  • Bill Nguyen

    No Z or new GT-R, but ugly ass SUV thing, sure!!

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      Which one sells better and generates more profits?

      Makes sense to me.

      • Bill Nguyen

        Of course you’re right, but do they have to make it look so bizarre?

  • I am lost here because what I understand was the 1.2 turbo and the 1.6 turbo is gone because of the emission, and they are replace by the 1.3 turbo of various HP output.
