Everything You Need To Know About The New 2017 Nissan Juke

Although its looks might not be “love at first sight” kind of thing, the new 2017 Nissan Juke offers lots of skin-deep beauty. Moreover, it is an appealing option in the hatchback/crossover section thanks to its lively performance, unique exterior/interior color customizations, an available all-wheel drive system, and a sporty handling. The Nissan Juke release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017, going by the recent media reports.

Don’t expect any apologies for its rather controversial exterior styling. In fact, Nissan says its exterior styling is perhaps one of it’s most appealing aspect. Styling aside, the new Juke comes with a match and mix program dubbed “Color Studio” that allows buyers to choose the colors they want for their model’s exterior paint.

Short Summary

The bottom line is the newest Nissan Juke, to say the least, offers bespoke options. And the color mixing program is just one of them. Interestingly, you’d think the model is just about styling but wait until you hear what lurks beneath its skin: a powerful, fuel-efficient turbocharged engine that Nissan says can make a whole load of power rated at 188 hp and 177 lbs. ft. of torque.

Engine

Opting for the 2017 Nissan Juke Nismo RS only makes things better as it comes with an improved version of the said engine capable of producing a cool 215 horsepower and 210 pounds-feet of torque with the FWD model or 181 pounds-feet of torque and 211 horsepower with the AWD version. Fuel economy ratings are, by and large, impressive by conventional standards.

Lots of performance upgrades have also been tagged along the impressive performance. Nissan says the newest Juke will come a genuine rear-axle torque-vectoring system alongside the all-wheel drive system. What this means in Layman’s language is that the vehicle will now be able to vary the power between the two axles and between the four wheels for purposes of improving traction. Moreover, it comes with about seven-inches of ground clearance.

Lack Of Space?

One important problem that seems to haunt its prospects in its segment is its apparent lack of generous interior space. If space ranks high in the list of your priorities, we highly recommend you check out the Honda HR-V, the Jeep Renegade, or the Mazda CX-3.

Which Trim Levels Are Offered?

Five trims are available for the 2017 Nissan Juke: SL, SV, Nismo, Nismo RS, and the base S.

What To Expect From The New 2017 Honda HR-V

The latest Honda’s fun-to-drive and fun-to-own vehicle breed happens to be none other than the 2017 Honda HR-V. And with it comes an excellent exterior visibility, spacious interior accommodations, impressive fuel economy, a boatload of technologies, and a versatile cargo loading ability. We expect Honda HR-V to get a release date for sometime in the first quarter of 2017, as per recent industry rumors.

The HR-V model came into being as a result of the popularity it’s bigger sibling – the Honda CR-V – had garnered, and Honda saw an opportunity to test the waters by creating a smaller version of it. For starters, if the Pilot is “papa,” the CR-V “mama,” then the HRV falls perfectly into place as the “baby” of the family.

What Is The Magic Seat?

Regardless of its size or how you choose to refer to it, the new Honda HR-V is undoubtedly one among the many vehicles in its class that deserves your undivided attention. There are lots of conveniences, infotainment, and comfort features available on the HR-V.

This is your perfect choice for a crossover if it happens that you’ve found mainstays to be pricey or too big for you.

What Are The Cons?

However, There are a few reasons that should make you think twice about owning the HR-V: the acceleration is underwhelming, while the infotainment system has been reported to be rather frustrating and lacking full Android integration. Rivals nipping its heels include the stylish Fiat 500X, the off-road capable Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-5, and the Mazda CX-3.
