Petrol version of Nissan Juke now offers 47.1mpg and 139g/km; diesel returns 57.6mpg and 129g/km
22 September 2011

The two engines that power the Nissan Juke crossover will offer improved fuel economy after the Japanese firm put the drivetrains through an optimisation programme.

Thanks to revised gear ratios, 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi turbodiesel models fitted with manual transmissions are now cleaner and more fuel-efficient.

The 1.6-litre petrol variant now returns 47.1mpg on the combined cycle – an improvement of 2.3mpg – and emits 139g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8g/km. As a result, the 1.6-litre petrol model now sits in VED Band E, meaning it will cost £15 less to tax a Juke.

Fuel economy for the 1.5-litre dCi has been improved from 55.4mpg to 57.6mpg on the combined cycle, and emissions have fallen from 134g/km to 129g/km. The diesel-powered Juke drops a VED band from E to D, and now costs £95 a year to tax.

On-the-road prices for the Juke – which was launched a year ago this week – stay the same, despite the changes. That means the petrol version costs from £13,995 for the entry-level Visia variant, with the oil-burner's prices starting at £14,795.
