2020 Nissan Juke: Still Quirky To Look At But Better In Every Metric

The second generation of the Nissan Juke is now in its final stages of development, as the Japanese car maker plans a full reveal towards the end of the year.

Even in full body camouflage it’s pretty obvious that the 2020 Nissan Juke will retain a visually quirky character, albeit one that might prove to be less challenging than the original.

Nissan’s new sub-compact SUV is adopting a narrower version of the V-Motion grille up front, flanked by a pair of circular headlights and two narrow LED daytime-running lights that are mounted right beneath the bonnet.

The profile is highlighted by a rather strong character line leading to the taillights, giving the new Nissan Juke a set of defined hips, while the rear doors retain the hidden-handle trick for a more dynamic look.

The new Nissan Juke will be based on the Alliance’s CMF architecture, the same one that underpins the new Clio and the also upcoming Captur, which should make the interior of the new small crossover roomier and more comfortable than the one in the original model.

Given the hardware shared between Renault and Nissan, it’s safe to assume that the petrol engine range will be comprised mostly by turbocharged 1.0-liter and 1.3-liter units. With the new Clio also featuring a new hybrid 1.6-liter powertrain, it’s also safe to expect Nissan to offer it in the new Juke as well.

Some reports suggest that the new Juke will get the aforementioned electrified 1.6-liter powetrain in combination with a larger 9.8kWh battery pack for its plug-in hybrid variant while Nissan is also planning to offer a full battery-electric version as well.

    Look like the old one just being facelifted and adding Qashqai lights at the back.
    Updated the headlights with LED in the top spec and halogen in lower trim.
    This might be good or a lazy upgrade to an old formula, i hope they prove me wrong

  • ThatGuy

    Oh no, they might make it look worse the LED Daytime Light above the round main beams might go to ugly next level.
    If this happens its the Micra saga all over, decent car made hideous.

    It looks a bit longer and sleeker. Are the headlights going to be like the Livina? Looks interesting can’t wait to see the unveil in September. Not too crazy about the tail lights (Qashqai’s) but I guess it’s something different for the Juke to bring more cohesion in the rear or improve the drag coefficient?
