We now know there's an all-new Nissan Juke coming, thanks to this teaser image. Here's what else we know so far.
Like it or loathe it, the Nissan Juke is one of those passenger cars that got people talking. David Taylor is especially fond of its quirky looks and surprisingly potent turbocharged petrol engines. First launched in South Africa in late 2011 and then facelifted in 2015, the Nissan Juke won many fans locally.
Now Nissan has dropped a teaser image showing a headlight and foglight detail of the all-new 2nd generation Juke. With a reveal scheduled for the 3rd of September, the new Nissan Juke will continue to make the most of what's left of the Renault-Nissan alliance. While unconfirmed, we expect the newcomer to be assembled on the CMF platform which is shared with the new Renault Clio and new Renault Captur - both of which are due in SA in 2020.
The shared components with the French carmaker mean that engines are likely to be shared too. The previous model used both the 1.6-litre turbo and 1.2-litre turbo from the Renault Megane and it makes perfect sense to continue this practice. The new Renault engines look decent on paper too, with a 1.3-litre turbo 4-pot. Let's not forget the new turbocharged triple engines as well as the venerable 1.5-litre diesel engine that continues to power things like the Renault Duster.
We'll have all the information on the all-new Nissan Juke when it's unveiled in early September 2019.
