What is it? Aimed at youthful buyers, the Nissan Juke sporty crossover is slated to sit between the Versa hatchback and Rogue small SUV.
The Juke was inspired by the Nissan Qazana concept car, which was shown in Geneva last year. The U.S. version of the Juke will have a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder direct injection turbo engine with a choice of a CVT or 6-speed manual transmission. Front- and all-wheel drive configurations will also be available.
Pricing is expected to start at just under $20,000. Standard features include six airbags, ABS brakes, and stability control. Optional features include leather seats, push button start, navigations system and power moonroof.
When will it be available? Fall 2010.
