Nissan’s Juke small SUV welcomes key updates for 2023, including new design elements and improved cabin technology. It will continue to be offered in five well-equipped grades, stepping from ST to ST+, then ST-L, ST-L+, and the flagship Ti or Ti Energy Orange.
The entire range now benefits from aerodynamic changes, first debuted on electrified Juke models, including updated badging, along with the introduction of two striking new exterior colour options —cool Ceramic Grey and vibrant Magnetic Blue.
The latter replaces Vivid Blue. Meanwhile, the ST and ST+ models introduce new 17-inch alloy wheel designs, while ST-L models debut new black interior elements, along with leather-accented seats, with detailed white stitching for the first time.
Practicality is key in the light SUV segment, and the JUKE ST-L, ST-L+ and Ti grades also score a new luggage board to help make the most of the boot storage, already among the largest in its class.
With technology at the core of the Juke story, the ST-L, ST-L+ and Ti grades also introduce a new Intelligent Key, with proximity locking and unlocking.
The premium Bose stereo system — which includes a pair of UltraNearfield speakers integrated into both front-seat headrests – in the JUKE ST-L+ and Ti grades gains an additional two rear speakers, bringing the total to 10.
“This evolution of the Juke range delivers yet more appeal to one of the country’s most stylish SUVs,” Nissan Australia managing director Adam Paterson said.
“It’s a hugely exciting time for Nissan, as we’re in the middle of a brand-wide refresh that will give us one of the newest and most exciting vehicle line-ups in the country. The updated JUKE is an important part of that story.”
The 2023 Nissan Juke continues to be powered by a turbocharged 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine that produces 84kW and 180Nm, and which is paired with a seven-speed DCT as standard, delivering an unrivalled combination of efficiency and excitement.
The high-tech powertrain perfectly matches the fun-to-drive nature of the quirky SUV, while returning an impressive fuel economy figure of just 5.8-litres/100km. It continues to hold a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
The new Nissan Juke will arrive in dealerships early next year, and is priced from $28,390 plus on-roads (ST variant). A tonne of safety tech also features, including a rear-view camera with rear parking sensors, and lane departure warning.
You’ll also find forward collision warning with intelligent emergency braking (with pedestrian and cyclist detection), intelligent lane intervention, traffic sign recognition, cruise control, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and hill start assist.
The ST+ is priced at $31,140 plus on-roads, and adds satellite navigation, DAB+ digital radio and front parking sensors. The ST-L (at $34,440 plus on-roads) adds 19-inch alloys, push button start, ambient lighting and a rear USB port. It also has three drive modes.
The ST-L+ hits the tarmac at $35,540 plus on-roads and grabs a white leather accented dash and 10-speaker Bose audio. The range topping Ti (and it’s TiO siblling) come with privacy glass, and quilted leather accented seats with Alcantara trim.
It’s priced at $36,890 plus on-roads. More information is available from your local Nissan dealer. If you’re keen on one, and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
