2017 Nissan Juke Is Just Around the Corner, Will Underpin a New Platform

Since its humble unveiling on the market in 2010, the Nissan Juke has been that alien-like model with millions of fans worldwide, the model being sold in more than 100,000 units so far.

The carmaker is not planning its extinction, but it is already planning an all-new model, due to arrive next year. More interestingly, the new model will come with rather the same body styling cues, but cooking some new powertrains under the hood.

I mean, why changing something already famous? Even with the good-looks, for some of course, the model will underpin a different platform, switching from the current BO platform – the same used on the 2002 Micra – to a more advanced CMF-B architecture, the same one found under the 2017 Nissan Micra.

Visually, the new Juke will come with the same attractive low headlights, prominent wheel arches, standout eyebrows and hidden rear door handle.

Besides the new architecture, the 2017 Nissan Juke will add plenty of new materials inside, making it more appealing, yet retaining the same interior design and configuration.

In the engine department, the new Juke will still come with fuel-efficient engines, with some new mills to make their way underneath. We might be looking here at a fresh 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo, standing side-by-side with a much potent 1.6-liter diesel and petrol. The carmaker is also planning a hardcore Juke-R, but the details are rather scarce at the moment. Stay tuned for more info on the new model!
