A more economical engine option has been made available for the Nissan Juke.
The revised 1.5-litre dCi diesel offers CO2 emissions of 109g/km and a claimed average economy of 67.3mpg, a notable improvement over the previous unit, which delivered 124g/km of CO2 and 58.6mpg.
A range of technical changes made to the latest engine generation make it the most efficient in the Juke line-up. These changes include revised piezo-electrical fuel-injection nozzles, which provide a better spray pattern, and the introduction of a closed-loop exhaust gas recycling system.
Nissan says that since launching the Juke in 2010 that more than a third of total sales have been powered by the last generation of the 1.5-litre dCi.
The new diesel unit also features Nissan’s start-stop system. A dynamic control system, which allows the driver to choose from three different engine settings, also helps boost fuel efficiency.
The new engine will be available across all Juke models, excluding the Nismo.
