Speaking with Autocar, Nissan's global head of design, Alfonso Albaisa, said the second-generation Juke "doesn't look too much like the [current] one", though will still sport a bold and distinctive design like the original. Additionally, Albaisa said "it doesn't look like the IMx or new Leaf, either. It's an urban meteor with a nasty attitude".

Alfonso Albaisa, the Cuban-American design head for Nissan and Infiniti, told us recently he wants to recalibrate the company's crossover styling language.
