  • The Nissan JUKE is unique and original in its design and is widely regarded as a trend-setter. Its exterior sets it apart from any other vehicle in Australia's Light SUV segment. Externally, the Nissan JUKE combines crossover toughness with sporting appeal. The shapes of the upper headlamps resemble a boomerang and the large, round lights at the lower front find their inspiration in the auxiliary driving lights found on traditional rally cars. The lower portion of Juke is pure SUV. It combines chunky wheels, wide tyres, extended ground clearance and a robust stance with a top portion that is unadulterated sports car, with a high waistline, slim visor-like side glass graphics and a coupe-style falling roofline. The coupe effect is further underlined by the rear doors which have their handles hidden in the frame of the door.

  • Inside, the sports car theme continues with a driver-focused cabin dominated by a centre console design inspired by a motorcycle fuel tank. Finished in a distinctive high gloss colour, the 'bike' console adds a sense of fun to the car. Practicality is assured by the rear-opening hatch and versatile luggage area with hidden storage opportunities. The higher seating position gives a better view of the road, and the contrast between agile forms inspired by an athlete's body in a wetsuit and exposed mechanical elements create a space that is designed to stimulate the driver's mind.

  • The Nissan JUKE Ti-S comes fitted with Nissan's Intelligent Technology Suite, which comprises three important safety features: - Lane Departure Warning: which can alert the driver both visually and audibly if they're unintentionally drifting out of their lane of travel. - Blind Spot Warning: which can alert the driver both visually and audibly if there's another vehicle in their blind spot before they change lanes. - Moving Object Detection: which can detect a moving object around the Nissan JUKE when it's maneuvering slowly, such as when parking. When detected, the driver is warned both audibly and visually, via the clever Around View Monitor, which gives the driver a bird's-eye view from four very small cameras located around the car.

  • The Nissan JUKE is priced competitively, with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $22,090 for the entry-grade Nissan JUKE ST. Nissan knows value is important to customers so each grade of the Nissan JUKE is comprehensively equipped with a generous list comfort, convenience and safety features.
