Nissan breathes life into the funky Juke with a facelift

The Nissan Juke has been in the global market since 2011, making it one of the more senior models in the current range. While the Nissan Kicks has been revealed, it hasn't stopped the world's largest automaker for breathing life into the funky-looking Juke just yet. They have just revealed facelift model.

Of course, don't expect a dramatic redesign. This facelift is more of a subtle tweak but the Juke's radical, polarizing styling is still present. With that, the 2018 Juke gets a smoke effect on the its daytime running lights, adding more black elements along the way. The signature V-Motion grill gains a black chrome treatment, complemented by a new grill element. Lastly, its mirror caps are now finished in gloss black and the LED foglights are now standard on higher trim levels.

Nissan Juke refuses to retire, gets tweaked for 2018

As for the rest of the car, it carries over largely unchanged from its front fascia and back. There are wheel designs as part of the package, as well as more 'personalization' options. Customers may spec it with Energy Orange or Power Blue exterior packages.

The interior on the other hand is also mostly carried over from the current Juke save for new option packages and a revamped instrument cluster and driver information display. The revamped Juke can be specified with a BOSE Personal audio which can deliver an immersive 360° listening experience through BOSE digital signal processing and six high-performance speakers. In addition, the surround-sound audio is complemented by BOSE UltraNearfield speakers built into the driver’s seat head rest. The system is unique to the Juke, says Nissan.
