All-New Nissan Juke Reportedly Due This Year With Electrification

The second generation Nissan Juke has been a long time coming, given that the current model (which is still available in regions like Europe) is almost a decade old.

Those who are still waiting for an all-new Juke should look for it later this year. AutoExpress reports that the subcompact SUV is finally coming, and will based on the Alliance’s CMF-B architecture, currently shared with the Renault Clio V.

The platform supports electrification, and the French supermini will be hybridized later on. It’s no wonder then that the upcoming Juke is also expected to feature a hybrid powertrain, which will keep the carbon dioxide emissions as low as possible and make it more competitive. An electric model is not excluded either, as it could take on the Hyundai Kona.

When asked about it, the brand’s Europe Product Planning chief Peter Bedrosian said: “People are moving from sedans and hatches into SUV-type vehicles, that’s happening globally, not just in Europe. And on top of that, here’s electrification, so it’s a perfect combination. We’re working on several powertrain options at the moment.” That’s hardly a confirmation, but it’s not a denial either.

The rest of the lineup will use internal combustion engines, which could include a small 1.0-liter petrol unit and a 1.6-liter turbo-four, with the latter developing roughly 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW). The brand won’t give up on the 1.5-liter dCi diesel either, which is expected to carry on, albeit with a few upgrades that will make it more efficient.

On the styling front, the 2020 Juke will be instantly recognizable. The company’s CCO, Shiro Nakamura, said a couple of months ago that it will remain “edgy and less mainstream”.

The interior will go through a comprehensive makeover, with focus on better quality plastics and connected features, such as an improved infotainment system with smartphone connectivity. Keeping the customers’ interest high will be a range of personalized options.

    I am glad they will upgrade the interior plastic; just one wipe of the( plastic) gauge cluster would scratch everything up, and that was a high quality cloth. T

      We might just see some spy shots this year. But so far I like how Nissan is testing the next gen Juke. They aren’t trying to go around testing covered cars in the public to show off their new vehicle, and I like that. Besides, it’s a good thing. We get to see less pictures of an ugly CUV ?

    Fake news. Who actually believes this crap? The Juke was an ugly POS but the Turbo engine was decent. Too bad it isn’t even an option on the kicks which is even worse than the Joke err Juke.
