Article by Christian Andrei, on February 28, 2010

Although it will not make its official debut at this year's Chicago Auto Show, Nissan unveiled today the new Juke Crossover. Built on the Versa's small-car platform. The new front-wheel-drive Nissan Juke will be smaller than Rogue and is based on the Qazana concept vehicle, shown at the Geneva Motor Show last March.

The official debut of the car will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, while the North American debut will be made at the New York Auto Show.

The Juke will provide our customers with a sporty alternative to hatchbacks that are on the road today, said Rich Latek, director, chief marketing manager at Nissan North America. Based on the Renault Nissan Alliance B platform, Juke has a 2530mm wheelbase.

On front-wheel drive versions, suspension is by MacPherson struts at the front with a torsion beam at the rear while four-wheel drive models have a multi-link rear suspension modelled on the system found on Qashqai.

In Europe,the Nissan Juke will receive three different engines:a 81kW (110PS) 1.5-litre dCi common rail diesel developing 240 Nm of torque and two 1.6 petrol engines, one developing 86kW (117PS) and the other 140kW (190PS) and 240 Nm.

In terms of transmissions, the two-wheel drive turbo-charged 1.6-litre petrol engine is available with a six speed manual, but a CVT transmission with a six-speed manual mode will be available for the all-wheel drive version of the turbo-charged petrol engine.

The naturally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol is available either with a 5-speed manual or the updated XTRONIC CVT while the 1.5-litre diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual.
