The Nissan Juke was first released in 2011, and received somewhat of a mixed reception – the styling was bold and extravagant. For the 2017 Juke, it seems as though Nissan are taking the easier option and softening the outrageous style of the SUV, perhaps using the Nissan Gripz concept as inspiration.

2017 Nissan Juke engines
Nissan states that an aim for the next generation of cars is to improve the power units and overall quality. It’s entirely possible that the new crossover will get a 1.0 liter turbocharged engine as used in the new Nissan Micra.
It is expected that the other engines available for new 2017 Nissan Juke won’t differ much from current engine line-up in Europe and North American version of the car. The 2017 Juke will get the same turbocharged 1.6L engine producing nearly 200 BHP. The increase of power output will improve the performance of the car. 0-60 acceleration time will decrease to 6.5 seconds.
There probably will be one or two more engine options – tiny turbocharged 1.0L (probably for EU-spec only) and naturally aspirated 1.8L engine from current Nissan Sentra producing about 140 BHP, as a standard engine.
Special Nismo versions of Juke will probably appear on sale later in 2017.
