nissan_juke_01[1]Mississauga, Ontario – Nissan Canada has announced pricing on the 2011 Juke crossover, which will start at $19,998 when it goes on sale this October. The Juke joins the Murano and Rogue in Nissan’s crossover/SUV lineup. 

The Juke is the first Nissan in North America to offer the company’s Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) turbocharged engine, a 1.6-litre four-cylinder rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, combining responsive performance and good fuel economy. It is available with a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT), and in front- or all-wheel drive. The all-wheel system can split torque up to 50:50 between the front and rear wheels, and also side-to-side across the rear axle for improved cornering and reduced understeer.

The six trim lines range from $19,998 for the SV with manual transmission and front-wheel drive, to the SL with CVT and all-wheel drive at $26,648. The SL models can be optioned with a package that includes leather upholstery and a navigation system.

Depending on the model, features including 17-inch wheels, bolstered front seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat, rearview camera, and pushbutton ignition. A new-to-Nissan technology debuting on the Juke is an integrated control system that allows drivers to adjust between Normal, Sport and Eco modes, adjusting throttle response, transmission and steering feel.
