SUNDERLAND, England - Nissan’s Juke is in production for Europe with fresh design features and extra technology.

The facelift Juke will arrive in South Africa in the last quarter of 2015.

The car is already a B-segment sales leader in the UK and more than 540 000 have been assembled there since 2010. Nissan has invested the equivalent of R361-million in the Sunderland (north-east England) plant to build "this significantly revised model".


Changes include "design enhancements, new engines and technologies and a wide-ranging personalisation programme".

The launch of the latest Juke will complete the total refresh of the plant’s product line-up.

Nissan’s vice-president for manufacturing in the UK, Kevin Fitzpatrick, said: "The significantly revised Juke is another example of how we never stand still at Nissan."

Changes on the Juke include a redesign for the front and rear, a smaller turbo engine and advanced equipment that includes a new audio system, the latest Nissan Connect driver-vehicle interface, a dynamic control system and a glass roof.

Boot volume has been increased by 40% in the two-wheel drive versions and a personalisation programme called ‘Nissan Design Studio' offers a range of new colours and cabin themes.
