The local compact crossover segment will have a new challenger as Nissan PH is set to launch the Juke next week.

The 2015 Juke made its global debut during last year's Geneva Motor Show. Nissan says the 2015 Juke comes with a “series of design enhancements, new engines, new equipment and a wide-ranging personalization program.”

In addition, three engines are available for the 2015 Juke: (1) a 1.2-liter DIG-T gasoline engine that delivers 115 PS and 190 Nm of torque; (2) a 1.6-liter DIG-T gasoline engine that has been improved to deliver more low end torque; and (3) a 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine that generates 110 PS.

However, Nissan PH has yet to release the official specs, variants and prices of the Philippine-bound Juke.
