First deliveries of Nissan’s new Juke start in mid November with prices ranging from €21,995-€26,950, writes Trish Whelan.
The new Juke is visiting Nissan showrooms around the country to give potential customers an opportunity to view the car which is renowned for its strong, muscular looks combining the style of a coupe with a crossover stance.
Nissan say while new Juke has grown up, it still maintains its sense of fun with a contemporary interior exterior look.
It competes in the B-crossover segment.
The 115bhp 1.0 turbocharged, three-cylinder petrol engine is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or a new seven-speed dual clutch automatic. The DCT transmission is available on all grades and adds €1,650 to the price of the car. C02 emissions range from 112g/km to 118g/km depending on wheel sizes and transmissions.
Five grades are - XE, SV, SV Premium, SVE and N-Design.

The entry grade XE has, as standard, 16-inch steel wheels, LED headlights, air conditioning, a 4.2-inch TFT screen between the dials on the instrument cluster, as well as safety equipment including automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, cruise control and hill start assist.
The SV (from €23,650) gets 17-inch alloys, a rear view camera, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and voice control recognition.
The mid-range SV Premium (from €24,650), has LED fog lights, tinted rear windows, rain-sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, and electric/heated door mirrors. Analogue dials are swapped for a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, TomTom sat-nav and a leather trimmed steering wheel and gear knob.
The range then splits into two - SVE and N-Design. Both models are priced the same at €26,950 and get 19-inch alloys as standard. Both models are designed to appeal to two different types of customers, with the SVE model designed to appeal to those customers that enjoy technology. The spec includes a 360-degree camera, Nissan’s driving and Park Assist technology and Pro-Pilot system as standard. It also has adaptive cruise control, an advanced driver monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert.
The N-Design grade offers 20 combinations of personalised exterior and interior choices, including 19-inch diamond-cut alloys, and a range of two tone roof colours plus bumper trims and other highlighted exterior parts. The N-Design also offers a range of optional personalised interiors including three combinations in white, black and orange to finish the seats, dashboard, door panel and armrest. All options give a highly premium feel.
