Juke is a modern crossover, but it wasn’t too interesting to buyers in the US. So, the company turned to replacement – Nissan Kicks. This vehicle is now a new representative in the North American market. However, that doesn’t mean we can consider its predecessor as a part of history. The 2019 Nissan Juke will still come in other countries.
Opinions are divided. Some experts believe that successor on the US market will have more fans. Also, the public is already praising design for the upcoming Kicks. On the other hand, there are still fans thinking it can’t replace Juke. Whatsoever, Kicks did it, and all fans from the US will have to accept Kicks or to look for some other model during the next purchase.
2019 Nissan Juke Engine
The 2019 Nissan Juke will keep the current 1.6-liter drivetrain. The reliable unit is delivering nice outputs thanks to a turbocharger mated to an inline-four system. However, new Juke will come with few optional modes. First thing buyers will choose is a transmission. For 2019 Juke the company offers 6-speed manual gearbox for base crossover. Higher trims are coming with an automatic box. Depending on trim, there are 6, 7, or 8 gears. By default, the SUV is using front wheels for a drive, while AWD comes optionally. Of course, this setup will drop mileage from 30 mpg to 28 mpg combined.
Nissan Juke Nismo RS
The next option 2019 Nissan Juke is going to offer is Nismo RS version. Fans already know what this suffix means. Nevertheless, the performance-oriented crossover will use the same engine. However, different setup will raise the horsepower from 190 to 215. Also, torque jumps from 180 lb-ft to 210 pound-feet. It doesn’t affect the fuel economy as we could expect. The Nismo RS will return 26-27 mpg.
2019 Nissan Juke Features
The 2019 Nissan Juke will bring back some interesting items from its predecessor. We are sure one of them will be integrated control system interface. Furthermore, intelligent all-wheel-drive system and a rearview camera will make controlling the crossover cozier. The Juke will be available in five trim levels, each of these bringing extra features. The base model is S; SV and SL are mid-range SUVs and at top of the segment sit Nismo and Nismo RS crossovers.
Whoever wants to boost interior of the 2019 Nissan Juke can do it by either purchasing higher trim level or extra features. Every upper model brings most of the equipment from its predecessor. The SL will get significant upgrades with leather seats and larger screen on the center console. The audio system on Nismo crossover is made by Rockford Fosgate. Outside, 18-inch wheels will be notable tuning.
2019 Nissan Juke Price
Although it is not coming to the US, 2019 Nissan Juke will keep the price in dollars. The crossover starts from $22,000. Kicks will come with a similar price tag on base models. Top of the trim model is 2019 Juke Nismo RS, with all features and the price. The cost of this model will go over $32,000. Some of the alternatives to Juke are Subaru Crosstrek, which is slightly larger, and Mini Countryman.
