The next-generation Nissan Juke has been spied again during development testing, ahead of an anticipated reveal within the next 12 months.
Snapped alongside the ageing current model, the new compact crossover is still shrouded in black and white camouflage though the overall shape is visible.
Compared to the vehicle on sale today, the new Juke looks to be a bit larger physically, aided by a more muscular design. It appears taller and wider than the current model, while the face looks to be more aggressive – though the finer details are still concealed.
While it’s an all-new design, NIssan has maintained various design elements of the first-gen model to keep the new car recognisable as a Juke, such as the two-tier headlight design, the small ‘V motion’ front grille, the sloping roofline, fastback tailgate, and slim glasshouse. These elements are mixed with Nissan’s more modern design elements, along with cues from the 2015 Nissan Gripz concept.
With the new platform, a range of small-capacity turbocharged petrol and diesel engines will be available, while plug-in hybrid and all-electric versions should be offered at some point as well.
As for timing, it’s anticipated the new Nissan Juke will be revealed later this year – possibly at the Frankfurt motor show in September – before going on sale very late in 2019 or early in 2020.
