Nissan Showcases the New Age Juke Nismo
|   Friday, January 25, 2013
Nissan has just launched the Juke Nismo for the European market and the vehicle has been designed exclusively keeping in mind the needs of the European customers. This is great news for the European customers as it was high time Nissan came up with a proper hatchback focused on the European market. The Juke Nismo is truly a performance packed hatchback sized crossover and could very well be Nissan's flagship model in its crossover range.

A third of every Million Juke sold around the world is manufactured at Nissan's Sunderland plant and this could very well produce the Nismo as well.
Apart from Great Britain, the Juke Nismo will be manufactured at the Cranfield technical center and Paddington design studio in Japan. The engineers have worked exceptionally hard on the Nismo and the results do not fail to show.

The vehicle is powered by a 1.6 liter petrol turbo charged powerhouse displacing 197 BHP. The chassis and body structure of the Juke has been revised and the modifications are obvious on the Nismo. The Juke Nismo is one of the most aggressively designed vehicles from Nissan in modern times.

Nismo has been tuning and developing vehicles for Nissan for the past five decades in the world of motor sports until recently when Nissan decided that Nismo tuned vehicles could also be used for driving on the road. The Juke Nismo is completely different from the standard Juke and people who view the Nismo expecting it to be similar to the Juke in many aspects are taken by surprise. The Juke Nismo features one of the most stable and reliable rides in the industry and is quite spacious too.

It is unknown how the Nismo can pack in so many luggages apart from the passengers as it is quite compact. However, this is a mystery which needs to be uncovered. Head and leg space apart from shoulder space is quite adequate and the interior is more than just comfortable. The torque balance is well maintained and the vehicle provides great handling in low, moderate and high amount of torque generation.

The engine works best near the 2000 – 2500 RPM mark and the urgency under the hood is legendary considering the fact that this vehicle only sports a 1.6 liter tiny engine under the hood. A six speed manual transmission system has been mated to the engine and this works perfectly well with the engine. The gear ratios are perfectly balanced and the CVT transmission system complements the engine quite well.

The ride quality is firm and the suspension settings have been done keeping in mind the power generation of the vehicle. Power to weight ratio is quite advanced and this is a reason for the high performance of the vehicle. The sporty cabin of the Juke Nismo also attracts much attention and is well received by the customers. Sporting a price tag of £19,995, the Juke Nismo is not over priced but provides bang for the buck. Nissan is already planning on launching a few more variants of the vehicle.
