Pricing and specification details for the refreshed 2015 Nissan Juke have been released.

The updated Nissan Juke debuted way back at the 2014 Geneva motor show, with a range of big changes for the small SUV.

That is to say, there’s a new 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Renault-Nissan Alliance, revised styling, improved cargo capacity for front-wheel drive models, and new technology. On top of that, there’s a new model range (with ST and Ti-S grades remaining, and ST-S having been dropped), as well as new pricing (see our pricing breakdown for the updated 2015 Nissan Juke below).


Already one of the most eye-catching models on sale, the Juke has gained a revised appearance, with new headlight assemblies incorporating LED daytime running lights, and top-spec (Ti-S) models gain xenon lights. The grille has been revised, and there’s a “more robust” trim under the front bumper.

New side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are standard on all models, while the rear-end of the Juke range sees new LED tail-lights. Revised colour options include Bumblebee yellow, Magnetic red and Ink blue, while there are new wheel designs, and all models now ride on 17-inch alloys.

Full specifications are still to be confirmed, but new tech includes a revised 5.8-inch colour touchscreen which, in the top-end Ti-S models, includes internet app connectivity. Ti-S also has satellite navigation with Google online search, and Bluetooth phone and audio streaming in standard on all grades.


The Ti-S model also has Nissan’s around view monitor system, which offers a 360-degree “helicopter” view of the car on the road using a range of cameras placed around the car’s exterior. Ti-S also gains Nissan’s “Safety Shield” technology suite, including lane departure warning, blind-spot warning and moving object detection.

As mentioned, the boot of the 2WD Juke models has increased from its tiny 251-litre capacity to a more competitive 354L. AWD models keep the small boot space, though, due the hardware under the floor.


The new 1.2-litre four-cylinder turbo engine with stop-start is offered in the entry-level ST, with 85kW and 190NM available. It only comes paired to a six-speed manual. The ST automatic option is a 1.6-litre non-turbo four-cylinder with 86kW/158Nm and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Both ST models are front-drive only.

The Ti-S can be had with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox, or all-wheel drive with a revised CVT that is said to have been turned for better efficiency and acceleration. Both versions come powered by the grunty 1.6-litre turbo four-cylinder engine with 140kW/240Nm.

Fuel consumption figures for all models are yet to be confirmed.
