Nissan preparing a hotter version of the Juke Nismo

Article by Christian A., on January 23, 2013

A new and improved Nissan Juke Nismo is in the pipeline, according to the company. It features a better performance, improved brakes, and a more focused chassis. The 1.6-litre turbocharged engine of the Juke Nismo has been modified to develop about 20bhp higher than the standard Nismo’s 197bhp. Meanwhile, its torque will get a 20% boost to about 220lb ft.

It will be fitted with a revised suspension that comes with different springs, shock absorbers and damping rates. In addition, the car will be positioned 20mm lower than the standard Juke Nismo. This new Juke Nismo will be available with front-wheel drive with a manual transmission, while four-wheel drive will be exclusively available with models that have CVT.

Nissan said that the two Nismo models are positioned the same as the Mini Countryman Cooper S to its JCW siblings. This new car is expected to start selling by the end of 2013. The Nismo range will continue to expand with a more hardcore derivative of the 370Z. However, Nissan has yet to reveal details about this model.
