2013 Nissan Juke Nismo UK pricing annouced

Article by Christian A., on December 10, 2012

The new Nissan Juke Nismo that will start selling in the UK in January next year offers amazing performance, stunning looks, and a generous set of equipment. What’s surprising is that the price tag of the new 200PS sports crossover will have a starting price of only £19,995. Deliveries will begin in March. The Juke Nismo had its debut last September at the Paris Motor Show.

Nissan’s Nismo performance division in Japan developed this model, which is targeted to be the first Nismo-badged road car for the European market. It will be powered by an uprated version of Nissan’s 1.6-litre direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which delivers 200PS at 6,000rpm and 250Nm of torque between 2,400rpm and 4,800rpm.

When the Juke Nismo is in front-wheel drive, six-speed manual form, it can accelerate from zero to 62mph in only 7.8 seconds and it can reach a maximum speed of 134mph. The Juke Nismo was developed to provide accessible performance.

The new engine is mated to an uprated chassis that will make the most of what power is available. It features 10 percent stiffer springs and its suspension settings were also revised to improve traction while it has a more direct steering.

Its looks were also improved by Nismo specialists and it now has front and rear Nismo badging and a subtle bodykit that uses signature red door mirrors with a matching lower red pinstripe.

Aside from the cosmetic changes, the model also gets a new aerodynamic bodykit, which gets lower front and rear bumpers, broader wings and sill side skirts, and a modified grille and tailgate spoiler.

This aids in cutting the front and rear lift without boosting drag. The changes enabled the Juke Nismo to achieve the same combined fuel economy figure of 40.9mpg and 159g/km CO2 emissions as the Juke DIG-T on which it is based, even with the additional power.
