2020 Nissan Juke: New Camo Drop Gives Us Our Best Look Yet

Nissan has dropped the car cover-like camouflage from the all-new Juke and switched to neatly-applied foil to give us the most revealing photos yet of the second-generation B-segment crossover. The 2020 Juke was spotted in southern Europe where it undergoes hot weather testing. (Updated 3/26/2019)

We knew an all-new Juke was on its way, and these spy shots are tangible proof that Nissan has already commenced testing of the new model.

This is the second time the next-generation Juke has been spotted in public and despite the fact that the prototype wears some heavy camouflage it’s not hard to identify it as a Juke. The bug-eye headlights are there, as are the “hidden” handles on the rear doors and flared wheel arches.

Furthermore, the new Juke features almost identical proportions to the current model, to the point one would be tempted to say it’s a facelift and not an all-new model. The biggest difference can be spotted at the rear, where the current model’s boomerang-shaped taillights are replaced by horizontal units similar to those of the Nissan Qashqai.

The front end may send a similar vibe to the current Juke thanks to the three-part lights (headlamps, DRLs and fog lights), but the 2020 model features a new V-motion grille inspired by the latest-generation Leaf.

There are no interior photos yet, but one of the shots offers a glimpse at the top of the dashboard which features a new “floating” display. It’s hard to say whether that’s definitive or just a development improvisation, although the cabin is expected to get a significant overhaul, both in design as well as tech.

Despite the striking styling similarities, the second-generation Juke will be based on an all-new platform. The CMF-B architecture seems like the most fitting choice, as it’s also used by the all-new Renault Clio and supports electrification, which will come in handy for the hybrid version we know will be available. Other engine options include 1.0-liter three-cylinder and 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline units, as well as a 1.5-liter turbo diesel.

Switching to CMF-B will also benefit interior space, as it will allow the 2020 Juke to have a slightly longer wheelbase and, thus, offer a much-needed improvement in rear legroom. Expect the all-new Juke to launch towards the end of this year as a 2020M, possibly making its debut either in New York in April or later in the fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
