Production Juke Nismo features revised aerodynamics and tuned engine
27 September 2012

Nissan has launched its Nismo road car programme with the reveal of the tuned Juke Nismo at the Paris motor show.

The car, modified by the company’s in-house tuner, uses an uprated version of Nissan's 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged petrol engine from the DIG-T model. 

It is fitted with a bespoke aerodynamics package and receives a chassis set-up designed to "deliver an even more engaging driving experience". 

Ther Juke Nismo features new front and rear bumpers, wider wings and side skirts, a different grille and a new tailgate spoiler. Nissan says these features are functional aerodynamic items, rather than for pure visual effect.

The car sits on new 18-inch alloys with stiffened suspension settings.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
