Nissan has brought to this year's Geneva Motor Show the facelifted Juke crossover, following a teaser image released in February.

The funky-looking Juke now wears Nissan's corporate front grille and has received 370Z-inspired headlights now available with xenon bulbs for improved visibility. The LED turn signals have been incorporated in the side mirrors while at the back the boomerang-shaped taillights have gone through a minor revision with LEDs.

Nissan has decided to replace the 117 HP 1.6-liter engine with a 1.2-liter DIG-T turbocharged gasoline motor also found in the second generation Qashqai. The direct-injected engine develops 115 HP (85 kW) and provides a maximum torque of 190 Nm (140 lb-ft). It can work with a six-speed manual gearbox or a new Xtronic transmission sending power to both axles.

Other novelties include an opening sunroof, different alloys, fresh body colors and a more extensive personalization program. Front-wheel drive versions now offer 40 percent more cargo room thanks to a rethought trunk area which has increased capacity to 354 liters.

The facelifted Juke is programmed to reach dealerships this summer.
