Second-generation of the small crossover looks set to retain many of the attention-grabbing features of the original, including the split headlight look.

The second-generation Nissan Juke has been spied undergoing warm weather testing in southern Europe.

Like the polarising first-generation car, the new model will have a two-tier headlight setup, prominent wheel arches, and disguised rear door handles.

While the overall shape of the Juke looks unchanged, the second-generation vehicle will have the company's V-motion grille, and the strip of driving lights seems to the thinner and less bulbous.

At the rear, the tail-lights are no longer arranged like a hockey stick, and instead partially reside in the tailgate.

Under the skin, the new Juke will use the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi CMF-B platform, which underpins the latest Renault Clio.

In addition to petrol and diesel engines, an electrified drivetrain will reportedly be offered at some point in the car's life cycle.

Despite, or probably because of, its styling, the Juke has been popular in Europe. According to Car Sales Base, 68,773 were sold across the Continent last year, with sales peaking in 2013 when 106,411 were sold.

In Australia, just 635 Jukes were sold last year, down from 1299 the year before, and comfortably eclipsed by its Qashqai stablemate, of which 13,950 were sold in 2018.
