Nissan has released the first teaser image of the 2020 Juke, ahead of its debut on September 3rd.
The picture isn’t very revealing, but it shows the crossover will have slender LED daytime running lights that reside above circular headlights. We can also see a more prominent grille which echoes the one found on newer models such as the Rogue and Murano.
Additional styling details are hard to make out, but it appears the crossover will be equipped with plastic body cladding and a silver accent beneath the grille.
Nissan didn’t say much about the Juke, but previous spy photos have shown it will follow in the footsteps of its funky predecessor. In particular, the crossover will have a rakish windscreen and muscular rear haunches. Other notable highlights include a sloping roof, a compact greenhouse and an evolutionary rear end.
The crossover is expected to be launched early next year and ride on the CMF platform that also underpins the Renault Clio and Captur. Engine options remain unconfirmed, but there could a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder with outputs of 138 hp (103 kW / 140 PS) and 158 hp (118 kW / 160 PS). Rumors have also indicated there could be a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder and a 1.5-liter diesel.
There have also been reports suggesting the company will offer a plug-in hybrid variant that uses a 1.6-liter petrol engine, an electric motor and a 9.8 kWh battery pack. This setup would reportedly enable the model to have an electric-only range in excess of 19 miles (30 km).
