Nissan reveals redesigned Juke for European markets

The bigger Juke retains its unique styling.

Nissan has revealed the all-new Juke for Europe and other overseas markets.

The 2020 edition is has a larger footprint than the outgoing model that was recently discontinued in the US, providing more than two inches of extra leg-room for rear passengers and 20 percent more cargo space.

Designers have transitioned to a slightly more traditional styling while retaining the unique flair that defined the first generation.

The interior has been extensively reworked, adding a larger eight-inch infotainment screen that floats on the dashboard. The new Juke also benefits from Nissan's latest safety and assistance technologies including automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring and other ProPilot automated driving features.

A three-cylinder turbocharged engine powers the crossover, producing 117 horsepower. Buyers can choose from front- or all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions.

The company has not indicated any plans to return the Juke to American showrooms, where it has been essentially replaced by the Kicks.
