2020 Nissan Juke revealed: more space and added tech for new crossover SUV

Published 03 September 2019

The new Nissan Juke has finally been revealed - with prices starting at £17,395 and deliveries from the end of November.

The current Nissan Juke crossover has been on sale nearly 10 years, meaning it's well overdue an update to take on rivals such as the SEAT Arona, Volkswagen T-Cross and Citroen C3 Aircross.

Built at Nissan's UK plant in Sunderland, the all-new Juke shares a platform with the new Renault Clio and upcoming Captur. It's longer and wider than before, meaning there's more interior space - something the outgoing model has never excelled at.

The manufacturer says rear knee room has increased by 5.8 cm, while there's an also an increase in rear headroom of 1.1cm. The 422-litre boot is 20 per cent bigger than the old model.

While unmistakably a Juke on the outside, according to Nissan, the new model has a more premium cabin with extra soft-touch materials, added technology and more interior customisation options, including numerous colour combinations.

A new eight-inch infotainment system will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as navigation and access to TomTom Maps with live traffic updates. Nissan claims the Juke will be its most connected car ever, with owners able to unlock it from their smartphone as well as remotely check their tyre pressure and oil level. 

Further technology includes a powerful Bose sound system and Nissan's ProPilot system, which offers semi-autonomous features including electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking intended for use in single-lane traffic. There's also a host of safety features including intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition as well as rear cross traffic alert and intelligent lane intervention.

The new Nissan Juke will be offered with just one engine - a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol producing 117PS. It can be paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission - the latter a replacement for the old CVT gearbox.

Performance and fuel economy figures are yet to be confirmed, and it's not known whether another engine will be added to the line-up in the future. A diesel is unlikely, but we'd expect to see electrified motors sooner rather than later.

Prices start at  £17,395 for the entry-level Visia model combined with a manual gearbox, topping out at £25,395 for a limited-run Premiere Edition model paired with the DCT transmission. Nissan says just 140 of the top-spec Premiere Edition cars will be sold in the UK. Deliveries will begin towards the end of November.
