With over 6600 Nisan Juke models sold locally, the company has announced the introduction of new CVT automatic and All-Wheel-Drive versions of the Juke to join the existing four-model line-up.
“The Nissan Juke is pure offspring of the Nissan bloodline where innovation, inspiration and ‘never conforming to the norm’ form the genetics which drive our crossover thinking,” said Nancy Reddy, Manager of Product Marketing for Crossover Vehicles at Nissan South Africa.
Nissn Juke Xtronic CVT and Automatic All-Mode 4x4i systemsThe Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) can be likened to a conventional automatic gearbox. However, the CVT uses two pulleys with a steel belt running between them, and can change through virtually infinite gear ratios rather than standard manual or automatic transmissions that have a fixed number of gears.
All-Mode 4x4i is available exclusively in the turbocharged Nissan Juke model. As an intelligent AWD system, it can distribute torque between the front and rear wheels through a torque vectoring system up to a maximum split of 50:50.
The All-Mode 4x4i is designed to enhance the Juke’s handling and provide more grip during cornering. It also enables responsive cornering as the driver intends, while Xtronic’s actions are relayed in real time to the driver through graphics on the instrument panel.
More character added to the new Nissan Juke variants
The new models sport bold looks, a sporty interior and customers can expect an electrifying drive with the new transmissions.
The new Nissan JUKE 1.6 Acenta CVT auto makes use of the existing entry level model and raises it to new levels of comfort. The installation of the CVT automatic transmission will enable the Juke to exhibit another side of its youthful character with an easier driving style, while maintaining its fun-to-drive nature.
The range topping Nissan JUKE 1.6 DIG-T Tekna AWD/CVT pairs the new transmission to the exciting turbocharged actions and adds the enhanced driving of AWD. With the extra grip and better road holding inherent with AWD, the turbocharged engine delivers 140kW and 240Nm.
Forward thinking and ability to provide enhanced driving dynamics are exemplified by both new Juke derivatives.
