The second generation Nissan Juke is on the way, with Nissan delivering the first tease for the new Juke and announcing it will debut on 3 September 2019.
It’s probably fair to blame Nissan for the proliferation of compact crossovers littering the roads in recent years, after they delivered the Nissan Juke almost a decade ago as a funky, stand-out – completely Marmite – take on high-riding urban car – and it sold well.
Not as well as the Qashqai – although over a million Jukes have been built in Sunderland – but well enough to last – with a few nips and tucks – for almost a decade, but now it’s time for a new Juke, and that means time to start the tease ahead of a debut on 3 September.
What we can see in the photo of the new Juke Nissan has sent over (above) is that it’s going to be a modern update of the current model, with a headlight design looking much like a refresh of the current car’s, and a more contemporary take on its looks are expected overall too.
It seems likely Nissan will be using Renault’s Clio platform for the new Juke, and that should mean the arrival of a plug-in hybrid Juke too, and there’s even talk of a proper electric Juke at some point.
That new platform will also see one of the few drawbacks of the Juke – a bit of a lack of space – addressed, and the interior will not only be bigger, but more upmarket too and with lots of tech including ProPilot.
Sales of the new Juke are likely to kick off in the New Year, and be built in Sunderland.
