Nissan prices new Juke

15 October 2019

NISSAN has announced prices for its new Juke range, most of which will be financed with a personal contract plan costing about a tenner a day.

The second generation of the North East-made crossover arrives here next month with prices starting at just over £17,000.

In the case of the Juke petrol turbo model with manual transmission, it requires an upfront deposit of £1500 and then costs £277 per month, or about £70 per week, which is £10 a day.

The contract runs for three years and the interest rate is fractionally below five per cent, in comparison to the bank base rate of 0.75 per cent.

Cash prices before discounts range from £17,395 to £25,500.

The newcomer is bigger yet lighter than the current car and comes with more kit.

There are five levels of standard trim and equipment, starting with 16-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, LED lights, a central display screen plus cruise control and hill start assist.

The Acenta version costs from £19,000 and gains 17-inch alloys, a rear camera, roaming Wi-Fi hotspot and an eight-inch touchscreen.

Prices rise to £21,000 for the mid-range N-Connecta model, which boasts rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors, darkened rear windows and LED fog lamps.

There is also automatic climate control, an electronic handbrake, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster and leather for the steering wheel and gear shifter.

The Tekna version takes prices up to £22,500 and gets 19-inch alloys, electrically-heated screen and front seats plus a more sophisticated sound system and adaptive cruise control

Next up is the Tekna+ from £23,895 with its diamond-cut alloys, two-tone paintwork and pearl black trim inserts.

In order to kick things off initially there will be a Premiere Edition costing from £24,000 with more distinctive wheels, sports seats and a fancy paint job with red highlights.

A single engine is on offer in the guise of a one-litre three cylinder petrol unit generating 115bhp with 200Nm of pulling power.

This is linked to a six-speed manual transmission or optional seven-speed automatic, resulting in acceleration to 60mph in about 11 seconds with a 110mph top speed.

Average economy is claimed to be 45mpg and the CO2 figure is 116g/km.

Nissan is hoping that the revised Juke will make it more competitive in a market that is now awash with new arrivals, including several from Skoda, Seat, Volkswagen, Kia and Hyundai.

Designed and built in the UK, this latest Juke is slightly longer and wider than the original, with more room inside for passengers and an extra 70 litres of boot space.

The use of modern lightweight super-strength materials enables it to weigh less whilst improving its structural rigidity.

It retains the distinctive Juke appearance but tones down the daring design excesses of the previous model in a bid to widen its mainstream appeal.

The Juke shares the same platform as the Captur of sister company Renault and will be capable of taking a hybrid or all-electric drivetrain, although there is no word on the possibility of a diesel option.
