The next generation of the popular crossover is on its way. Although it never managed to establish a great position on the U.S. market, it is definitely one of the most popular crossovers in Europe, as well as in many other parts of the world. The next generation is about to come soon. Along with standard models, we count on a version with Nismo treatment as well. This model is about to come as the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo and it is also expected to come in the next year. At this point, we don’t know many details about it, be there’s no doubt it will come with numerous upgrades over the base model.
2020 Nissan Juke Nismo Redesign
Of course, the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo will be heavily based on the upcoming next generation of this small crossover. The new model will come with tons of novelties. It will ride on a familiar CMF platform and latest reports suggest notable weight reduction. This performance version will probably go even further and save even more points. Still, a new suspension setup seems like a more important upgrade. Compared to standard models, the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo will come with a completely new suspension, brakes and chassis reinforcement. All these will provide better performances, particularly because of the lower ground clearance. The lower center of gravity will definitely have a highly positive effect on cornering, acceleration and braking. Of course, we count on visual upgrades as well.
Styling and Interior Design
In terms of the styling, the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo shouldn’t go far away from standard models. The new generation of the subcompact crossover will come with a lot of new design solutions, but will also feature several interesting novelties, which will make it distinctive compared to the rest of Nissan’s lineup. Just like the original, we count on separated lighting groups, just designed in a more up-to-date manner this time. Of course, the Nismo badge will bring a lot of enhancements, starting from new bumpers, side skirts, roof spoiler etc. Also, count on a new set of wheels, with more inches in diameter and lower-profile tires.
When it comes to the interior design, upgrades are about to come as well. The new generation will come with significantly improved interior quality, as well as with completely new dashboard design. Of course, the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo will come with further upgrades. Some of the first things that come to mind are sports seats, new instrument cluster and new color schemes, as well as materials like carbon fiber, aluminum etc.
2020 Nissan Juke Nismo Engine
The new generation of subcompact crossover is about to get a completely new lineup. It will consist of new turbo gasoline engines, as well as of a familiar 1.5-liter diesel unit. Also, we expect to see a hybrid version in the offer as well, based on a 1.6-liter engine and coupled with two electric motors. On the other side, things about the 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo are still unclear. The outgoing model uses a 1.6-liter turbo-four that delivers around 200 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque.
Of course, everyone expects improvements with the new model, so more power seems like a natural thing. However, it is still unclear whether the new version is about to keep the current engine and tune it, or we are about to see something new. Some reports even suggest a 2.0-liter turbo-four with around 250 horsepower, which would definitely be a big power boost compared to the current version. More details should be known in the near future.
Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Nissan Juke Nismo should come along with standard models. When it comes to the price, the current model goes around 22.000 pounds (24.500 Euro), so we presume that the new model won’t cost significantly higher.
