Car buyers opting for Nissan’s sector-defining Juke crossover are about to get even more than they bargained for. As part of Nissan’s constant drive to improve its products, both the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi diesel drivetrains have undergone an optimisation programme to further reduce emissions and boost fuel economy.
Thanks to revised gear ratios, 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi turbodiesel models fitted with manual transmissions are now cleaner and more fuel-efficient. The 1.6-litre petrol variant now returns 47.1mpg on the combined cycle an improvement of 2.3mpg and emits just 139g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8g/km.
The icing on the cake for all Juke buyers is that these revisions come at no additional cost. On-the-road prices have been held, meaning that buyers really can make a saving by choosing the Juke. Over 22,000 Jukes have been sold in the UK since it was launched on 24thSeptember 2010, replicating the success of the Nissan Qashqai by moving out of a niche and into the mainstream.
