has revealed the all-new version of its small SUV, the Juke
. The reveal of the latest generation car comes almost a decade after the first Juke was unveiled, and Nissan hopes it’ll take on a rather crowded small SUV
market. Its rivals will include cars like the Renault Captur
, Volkswagen T-Cross
and Seat Arona
The new car evolves the look of the previous Juke and expands the range, with the entry-level model costing from £17,395 OTR, and the top-of-the-range Tekna+ model costing from £23,895. Features include some self-driving technology called Nissan ProPilot, on-board wifi and over-the-air updates to keep things like sat-nav maps up to date.
Nissan says there’s more room inside than the old Juke
, with better legroom and headroom in the back, and a 422-litre boot, which is a big jump up from the 354 litres found in the old model. It’s also bigger than the boot in the Arona, but smaller than the Captur or the T-Cross. However, the car’s weight is down by 23kg.
Power comes from a three-cylinder, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, producing 117 horsepower, and it’s available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic.
