This Japanese automaker is one of the most popular companies in this industry in Asia as well as in America. Two years ago they reached its peak in the US with more than 1,000,000 units sold and we’re still waiting for the 2015 figures. With LEAF Nissan made a great success and they still have high hopes in terms of sales. However, we shouldn’t forget other popular models, such as Juke. The 2016 Nissan Juke was one of the most anticipated cars in 2015. Originally it was released six years ago and it has got lots of improvements since then. The most impressive part of Juke is its unique and futuristic design. Nissan is known for its impressive design innovations but Juke is really something unique in the car world. 2016 model doesn’t differ much from its predecessor but it comes with few minor refreshments.
2016 Nissan Juke Engine and MPG
Two different engine units are available for the 2016 Nissan Juke, one diesel, and one petrol engine. The petrol unit is 1.6l inline-4 and it comes with an output of 188 HP and 177 lb-ft of torque. These figures are not among the top in the class but they will deliver the goods. Top speed hasn’t changed and it’s still 125 mph while it can reach 60 mph in eight seconds. There are two different options when it comes to driving system. A driver can choose between all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. Transmission system is also optional.
On the other hand, there is 1.5l diesel unit that has better fuel economy than the first option. It is estimated that Nissan Juke 2016 uses 6.4l of fuel per 60 miles on highway and 8.2l in a city. These figures are quite good and that is one of the reasons why Juke is so popular.
Nissan Juke 2016 Interior and Exterior
As we have already mentioned there is no huge improvement only minor modifications. The 2016 Nissan Juke has new sunroof, alloy wheels and taillights. It is even more aerodynamic than the previous model and that’s why fuel consumption is lower than before. Nissan didn’t want to modify the initial design since it is one of the most innovative designs in the car world.
Interior follows the exterior. It is also very modern and futuristic. We believe that we are not exaggerating when saying that Juke has one of the best cabins we’ve ever seen. LED touch screen allows driver to control most of the functions. However, it is not all about the outlook. Juke is one of the safest Nissan cars. Thanks to numerous safety features and airbags you should worry during a ride. Some of the safety features are blind-spot system, safety guard plan, parking camera and many more.
Price and Release Date
In spite of great innovations, the price is not as high as you might expect. Starting price of the 2016 Nissan Juke is $20,250. You’ll get the basics at this price, but for additional $10,000 you can buy fully-equipped car. New model has been released several weeks ago thus it can already be found in Nissan’s car saloons.
