Juke is one of the most interesting compact crossovers in the market. Nismo is the variant of that vehicle, but with different styling. Most notable modifications are on bumpers and skirts, which make 2017 Nissan Juke Nismo more aggressive. Also, bigger wheels, richer interior and better suspension make new SUV attractive and fresh. We expect same engine range, and probably slightly increased price for new Juke Nismo. Also, after release of the regular model, we can wait for performance boosted RS variant of the crossover. Nevertheless, not only differences with base Juke model are to be refreshed, but also common things for both vehicles.
