2020 Nissan Juke price and release date
After more than a decade on sale, the Nissan Juke, though it remains a distinctive shape on the roads, is rather long in the tooth. But an all-new car is on the way, this time with hybrid power. It’s set to go on sale early next year, and will join the booming ranks of small SUVs at a starting price of around £16,500.
2020 Nissan Juke styling
The distinctive styling of the original Juke was one of its USPs, so replacing that car was always going to be a tricky challenge. But it looks as if the new car won’t shy away from eccentric styling quirks. This is clear from the latest teaser image (above), which shows a complex front light graphic and (in the shadows) part of Nissan’s corporate-brand ‘V’ grille.
The original Juke was also more sporty-looking than many small SUVs and the new car’s distinctive wheel arches, rising waistline and low roof continue the sporty theme. At the rear of the Juke there’s a distinctive fold that moves along the rear haunches into the tail lights on the boot lid.

It’s also set to get an all-new set of engines, the most significant of which is the new hybrid, a first for the Nissan Juke. This will be a 1.6-litre petrol engine supplemented by an electric motor. Other engine choices will include the turbocharged 1.0-litre and 1.3-litre petrols first used in the recently revised Qashqai. There’ll be a 1.5-litre diesel, too.
What else can you expect from the Nissan Juke? Well, it’ll have more interior space than the current version and all cars will come with a large central infotainment screen.
