2024 Nissan Juke With N-Sport Trim and Enhanced Features

Nissan has introduced updates to the Juke for 2024, aiming to enhance its competitiveness in the crowded small SUV segment. While the exterior design remains largely unchanged, significant improvements have been made to the interior, including a larger infotainment display and enhanced fit and finish. Additionally, Nissan has introduced a new flagship trim called N-Sport and reintroduced a yellow colour option.

The Juke N-Sport trim represents the pinnacle of the lineup, featuring black accents on the roof, pillars, wheels, wheel arches, mirrors, and grille, which contrast with the new yellow exterior colour. Inside, the N-Sport trim boasts yellow stitching, dashboard trim, and inserts made from recycled Alcantara, along with Juke emblems embossed on the seats.

The most notable change inside the cabin is the introduction of a larger 12.3-inch infotainment display, positioned atop a slightly redesigned dashboard with a driver-centric incline. This upgraded display comes standard and can be paired with a new 12.3-inch configurable digital instrument cluster. The improved infotainment system now supports wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and features an enhanced voice recognition system.

Nissan has also made several other interior enhancements, including smoother leather-style material on the steering wheel, a larger glovebox, new seats across most trims, and a redesigned centre armrest for improved support. Additionally, the Juke now comes equipped with an electric handbrake, wireless charging pad, and USB-A / USB-C outlets for all passengers, aligning it with modern standards for 2024.

Exterior updates are minor, with revisions to the colour options and the introduction of new wheel designs, some of which are up to 19 inches in diameter. The highlight is the return of the yellow colour option, which was highly requested by customers and is now slightly paler compared to the previous iteration. Nissan’s colour and trim department has also refined the formulas for the pearl white and metallic black shades to enhance their appeal.

Lane Departure Warning is now integrated as standard equipment with the Juke update. While standard from the Tekna grade onward, emergency lane keep is an option.

The rear-view camera’s quality has also been raised from 0.3 to 1.3 megapixels to better utilise the high-definition centre screen. This means that movements including reversing can be executed even more confidently because of a sharper vision, particularly in low light. All Juke grades now come equipped with a rear-view camera as standard equipment. N-Connecta grade up and higher models can also order the Around-View Monitor, which combines images from four cameras around the car to provide a “bird’s-eye view” of the car’s position for parking manoeuvres.

The Juke offers two powertrain choices. The first is the Juke Hybrid, featuring a Nissan internal combustion engine optimised for hybrid use, delivering 94hp and 148Nm of torque. On the electric side, the primary electric motor generates 49hp and 205Nm of torque, supplemented by a 15kW high voltage starter/generator connected to a 1.2kWh liquid-cooled battery via an inverter. This configuration yields a power output 25% higher than the current petrol engine option, along with fuel consumption reductions of up to 40% in urban settings and up to 20% overall.

Alternatively, the non-electrified engine option for the Juke houses a compact and lightweight 1.0-litre three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine. Delivering 117PS and 180Nm of torque. Drivers can select between a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) paddle-shift transmission, along with a driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport) to tailor the driving experience to their preferences.
