Nissan Juke 2019: Lease deals available on second-gen crossover
Lease deals on the all-new Nissan Juke are now available, ahead of customer deliveries beginning at the end of November.
It’s hard to believe the outgoing model has been around unchanged for almost a decade, and after setting the bar for compact crossovers through its distinctive personality the time has arrived for the next-generation model.
Aiming to reinvent the segment once again, the new Juke is set to be built at Nissan’s Sunderland plant. While it has moved away slightly from the design of the old model, it retains its overall shape and styling while growing in size and looking more familiar to the rest of the Nissan line-up. Its sleek lines and athletic stance couple with increased roominess and a modern interior to set a new design standard.
Dimensions are now 4,210mm length; 1,595mm height; and a width of 1,800mm for improved roominess while remaining compact and being lighter by 23 kg. Thanks to high strength steel, the new model also features a more rigid platform that offers better stability, performance and cornering capabilities.
Only one engine will be available from launch, a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol. This will be available with either a six-speed manual gearbox or an all-new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and up to 115hp.
Equipped with full LED technology as standard, the latest Juke retains its iconic circular headlamps but bins the bulbous headlights in favour of a new Y-shaped signature which complements Nissan’s V-Motion grille.
Transformed on the inside as well, the reimagined interior offers style and comfort boosted by improved driver positions, increased rear roominess and more user-friendly controls and storage. Rear-seat space is increased by 58mm, rear head room by 11mm and a boot capacity of 422 litres – providing 20% more storage room than the outgoing model.
New soft-touch materials on the dashboard, door trim and foot-wells all offer a premium feel, complemented by standard monoform sporty seats and optional Alcantara or leather upholstery. Featuring Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology, the new model is the most connected Nissan ever, empowering the driver with their own command centre.
A brand-new eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system floats on the dashboard, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto available as well as TomTom Maps and Live Traffic. On-board wifi also features, as well as voice-controlled Google Assistant which gives control over functions including central locking, vehicle lights and sending destinations to the car’s navigation system.
Driver assistance technology also features heavily, with Nissan’s advanced ProPILOT technology - which offers electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking - available on the Juke for the first time.
In addition, Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention also feature. Blind Spot Intervention is unique to the segment and warns the driver when a car gets into its blind spot and guides the car back in the lane.
“The new design and exciting driving experience will appeal to the growing number of customers opting for compact crossovers. The Juke has grown up, while still retaining the fun-to-drive qualities that have always made it stand out.” said Ponz Pandikuthira, Nissan Europe vice president, product planning.
Lease prices currently start from around £250 per month for the entry-level 1.0 DiG-T Visia.
