Minor design changes for boldly-styled crossover bolstered by new personalisation options.
Nissan Australia has confirmed pricing and specification details for the updated 2019 Juke line-up, which starts at $23,490 before on-road costs.
You'll be hard pressed to pick the distinguishing features between the 2018 and 2019 model-year versions of the little crossover, though the new one features some subtle changes.
All versions get a darker chrome finish for the 'V-Motion' front grille, along with a smoked finished for the headlights, tail-lights and indicators. The range also gets LED fog-lights as standard, too.
Changes for the entry-level ST include a 'premium' graphite cloth trim, while the top-spec Ti-S (from $30,140) gets new 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels.
Inside, all versions of the Juke get a revised instrument cluster lighting colour, which is now white compared to the previous orange. Two new exterior colours are available across the line-up too – Arctic White and Vivid Blue – bringing the total count to seven.
Buyers of the Ti-S are now able to choose from three new myJuke Personalisation Pack options ($800), themed Power Blue, Energy Orange and Tokyo Glossy Black.
Each pack adds splashes of their respective colour to the alloy wheel inserts, side mirror caps, centre console, side vent and door panel finishers, along with the stitching of the hood above the instrument cluster.
Powertrains remain unchanged for the new model year, though the automatic ST has been dropped. The base grade is now solely available with an 85kW/190Nm 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine mated exclusively to a six-speed manual driving the front wheels. Fuel consumption is rated at 5.6L/100km for the base engine.
Stepping up to the Ti-S gets a 140kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbo petrol motor, paired with a six-speed manual and front-wheel drive as standard. Now, the sole automatic offering in the Juke range is the CVT-equipped Ti-S, which also adds all-wheel drive (from $33,840).
Fuel use for the Ti-S is rated at 6.0L/100km on the combined cycle.
Standard specification is otherwise unchanged between the two trim levels. The base ST is equipped with halogen headlights, LED daytime-running lights, selectable driving modes, auto door lock, auto-off headlights, bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB input, along with a leather-accented steering wheel and shift knob.
Other features include cruise control, climate control and two isofix child seat mounts for the outboard rear seats.
The flagship Ti-S gets 18-inch alloy wheels, auto-folding side mirrors, heated front seats, keyless entry with push-button start, a 5.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, DAB+ digital radio, and live traffic updates.
Bolstering the aforementioned features are lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitoring, along with 360-degree camera system with moving object detection.
You'll note the absence of active safety and driver assistance tech like autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, though these features aren't available on any Juke variant despite ever-tightening ANCAP and Euro NCAP testing criteria.
