The all-new 2011 Nissan JUKE sport cross, which hits Nissan dealer showrooms in the United States in September 2010, draws on a number of active lifestyle influences, including motorcycles and rally cars, to create a breakthrough design among traditional B-segment hatchbacks. Along with its bold design and highly distinctive, sporty styling inside and out, JUKE brings unexpected levels of performance from a standard 188-horsepower 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) turbo 4-cylinder engine and an advanced torque vectoring all-wheel drive (AWD) system – performance technology usually reserved for premium vehicles.
JUKE fuses the best qualities of a sports car, including a sporty driving position, dynamic handling and powerful turbo engine, with the best aspects of an SUV – such as a robust lower body, raised ground height, improved visibility, confident stance and available all-wheel drive. These qualities come together in a uniquely Nissan way with value, quality, safety and driving pleasure.
