Nissan Juke priced

Nissan prices its Juke mini SUV, as it gets ready to fight the Fiesta, Mini, and Audi A1

The new Nissan Juke has been priced. And it’s been done so rather competitively, its sub-£13K kick-off point directing it at mid-range Fiestas and Polos, despite it being a bigger and more premium-feeling product.  £12,795 buys you a 115bhp 1.6 petrol Juke Visia, which gets a decent kit-count – 16in alloys, air conditioning, sports seats, ESP – as standard. Other trim levels include Acenta (an extra grand getting you 17in alloys, climate control, Bluetooth and tweakable dynamics) and Tekna (£3K more than base, adding leather, keyless go, reversing cameras and more). There are two more engines from launch, a 108bhp/177lb ft 1.5-litre diesel and – more interestingly – a 1.6-litre direct injection, turbocharged petrol engine that boasts 187bhp and 177lb ft of torque. It’ll hopefully turn the 1.3-ton Juke into something of a surprise hot hatch, especially if you spec the four-wheel-drive system.  While Jukes are front-driven as standard, the top-spec engine gets the option of a trick torque-vectoring transmission, with independent MacPherson struts up front and multilink suspension at the rear. Up to 50 per cent of the car’s power can be sent to an individual back wheel in an effort to quell understeer.  Direct-injected Jukes start at £15,695 for a fwd Acenta, while a full-fat 4wd Tekna (with standard CVT auto) costs a fiver shy of £20K. All European Jukes (except all-wheel-drive cars) will be built at Nissan’s UK factory in Sunderland, safeguarding 1000 jobs. Read more info and see more pictures of the Nissan Juke Click to read our review of the rival Mini Countryman
