Nissan Juke 2020 model on its way to Malaysian showrooms
This is an all new 2020 Nissan JUKE and yes it does not look very much different from its 1st generation model that sold well in Europe and some parts of Asia, like Indonesia. Never sold officially in Malaysia, this compact crossover is now destined to arrive in Malaysia very soon as sales of compact crossovers in the country super-seed the sales of compact premium sedans. Look at the success of the HR-V, C-HR, CX-3 and the possible new Proton X50.
This Juke does not look very much different but it redefines the standard of compact crossovers thanks to a strong personality, better performance and new technologies. Almost ten years after creating the compact crossover segment, comes the new generation of Nissan JUKE, with distinctive personality, to reinvent this segment once again.
Transformed on the inside as well, new Nissan JUKE is roomier for both passengers and their belongings, with rear-seat knee room increased by 5.8 cm, rear head room by 1.1 cm and a boot capacity of 422 litres – providing 20% more storage room. A reimagined interior offers style and comfort boosted by improved driver positions, increased rear roominess and more user-friendly controls and storage. New soft-touch materials on the dashboard, door trim and foot-wells offer a premium feel, complemented by standard monoform sporty seats and optional Alcantara® or leather upholstery.
Offering a new level of personalisation, the all-new Tekna+ grade package ensures that customers can truly make JUKE their own. Multiple colour combinations for body, roof and interior upholstery are available – bringing out the urban, premium and sporty character of the JUKE. Exterior personalisation is also offered as standard on Tekna+, with customisable bumpers, side sills and 19-inch alloy wheels.
The sporty Nissan JUKE is designed for agility, but the all-new crossover has also grown up. Dimensions are now 4,210 mm length; 1,595 mm height; and a width of 1,800 mm for better roominess while remaining compact and lighter by 23 kg. Thanks to high strength steel, the new model features a more rigid platform that offers better stability, performance and cornering capabilities, and new levels of confidence and control.
The Nissan JUKE is powered by an efficient 1.0-litre three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine with 117PS, giving drivers improved performance, fuel economy and refinement. Available with an engaging 6-speed manual or sporty 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) paddle-shift transmission, and a driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport), drivers can effortlessly match their driving style to any driving scenario for maximum fun on the road.
The JUKE is now loaded with Nissan’s infotainment and driver assistance technology. Featuring Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology, the new model is the most connected Nissan ever, empowering the driver with their own command centre.
Nissan Intelligent Mobility
Nissan’s advanced ProPILOT technology, which offers electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking, will be available on the JUKE for the first time. Designed for highway use in single-lane traffic, ProPILOT makes long commutes and heavy traffic easier.
In addition, Nissan JUKE offers a full package of safety technologies, including Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention as a Nissan premiere that is unique to the segment. Blind Spot Intervention warns the driver when a car gets into its blind spot and brings JUKE back in the lane.
Connectivity, Infotainment, and BOSE® Personal® Plus
With the new NissanConnect infotainment system, customers can use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto to mirror their favourite smartphone apps on the 8-inch touch screen display. Drivers can also access TomTom Maps & Live Traffic or activate their on-board Wi-Fi Hotspot to allow passengers connecting their laptops or tablets.
The NissanConnect Services app is the perfect mobile companion, offering customers control over multiple aspects of their car. Nissan JUKE owners can now check the door-lock status of their vehicle and lock or unlock their Nissan directly from their smartphone. For increased safety, drivers can also check their tyre pressure and oil level before departing on a trip.
To make Nissan JUKE drivers’ lives even easier, Google Assistant compatibility gives them control over functions including central locking, vehicle lights and sending destinations to the car’s navigation system by talking to their smart device.
Drivers and passengers can also play louder with the Bose® Personal® Plus sound system. With eight powerful speakers – including two UltraNearfield units integrated into both front headrests – listeners can enjoy immersive music in ultra-clear definition.
