Nissan has offered a first glimpse at the upcoming 2020 Juke, revealing details about its second-generation split headlight design.

Based on the image, the new Juke will get slim LED daytime running lights sitting above circular headlights, in keeping with the two-tiered design debuted on the soon-to-be discontinued model.

It looks like the grille will also be more prominent, potentially mirroring that of the Gripz concept. In fact putting spy photos of the Juke alongside pictures of the aforementioned concept reveals more than a few similarities.

When it launches in September, the new Juke will run with an aggressive, sloping roofline and stronger haunches than the current model. Its tail-lights are expected to keep a similar shape to those of the current car, however.

Under the skin, the new Juke should ride on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi CMF-B platform underpinning the new-generation Renault Clio.

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.

The Juke is expected to be revealed at the 2019 Frankfurt motor show, before going on sale late in 2019 or early in 2020.
