Our spies have managed to snap a few photos of the upcoming Nissan Juke facelift which will retain most of the rather controversial design.

The refreshed Juke will continue with the love/hate design as the alien-shaped front will sport the similar oversized rounded headlights but there will be some tweaks in the front grille and bumper. The side profile doesn't seem to bring any changes while at the back there's a new bumper and reworked taillights.

The alloy wheel design will also undergo a minor surgery while the interior cabin will probably be left untouched. Under the hood the facelift Juke will likely get the 2014 Qashqai's 1.2-liter DIG-T engine rated at 115 HP (85 kW) and 140 lb-ft (190 Nm) which will replace the naturally-aspirated 1.6-liter motor.

It is believed Nissan will showcase the facelifted Juke in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
