New Juke from Nissan factories is being prepared. However, most buyers will be interested to see what could happen with its performance tuned version, which should arrive as 2016 Nissan Juke Nismo. It is attractive model, and for new version, there won’t be big changes made. It will be revisited, but Juke Nismo main characteristics and appearance will remain the same. Release date is still unknown.
2016 Nissan Juke Nismo engine
Nismo uses the same, but tuned model of powertrain used for regular Juke. For 2015 it was 1.6-l inline-four unit, and it is expected from 2016 Nissan Juke Nismo to have the same, but slightly refreshed drivetrain. Surely, it is going to produce over 200 hp, and it will surely top 215 hp from 2015 Juke. The 2016 Juke Nismo is also going to have around 200 lb-ft of torque, but it depends on drive systems. A CVT is standard gearbox, and Nismo models offer 6-speed option. Power is sent to either front wheels or all four wheels in models with CVT. Experts predict that new Juke Nismo could sprint to 60 mph in just 7 seconds.
2016 Nissan Juke Nismo mpg
If same engine is going to power 2016 Nissan Juke Nismo, then estimated fuel consumption could be the same. However, slight improvements are expected. First of all, on drivetrain and transmission. Then, more use of the aluminum for body panels could cause overall weight drop, so mileage could benefit from it. Experts predict 30 mpg combined for new Juke Nismo with FWD and CVT installed. An AWD models will have slightly lower rate, but difference is going to be not more than 2 mpg.
2016 Nissan Juke Nismo redesign
Changes on 2016 Nissan Juke Nismo appearance will be modest. Refresh on the exterior will be shown just on headlights and probably bumper. However, interior accessories will get updates and upgrades, while some new features are going to be installed. Nissan connect infotainment system is still a highlight of all hi-tech equipment, with some cutting-edge technologies and stuff. It was updated recently, so all buyers that liked it, will be more pleasured.
