New York, New York – Nissan has unveiled the all-new 2011 Juke sport cross at a special preview before the New York Auto Show. The Juke will join Nissan’s Murano and Rogue crossovers at dealers in the fall of 2010.
Juke brings bold design, unexpected levels of performance from its 1.6-litre direct injection gasoline turbo engine, and advanced torque vectoring all-wheel drive.
“Juke is about to carve out a unique space in the rapidly growing compact crossover/hatchback segment with its combination of striking design, agile handling and driver pleasure, and user-friendly technology,” said Ian Forsyth, director of corporate and product planning for Nissan Canada. “Add in the convenience, versatility and high seating position of a traditional compact SUV and you’ve got a vehicle unlike any other in its class.”
Juke’s interior offers bolstered front seats and a centre console inspired by a motorcycle console, along with 60/40 split-folding rear seat and flat load floor. A new-to-Nissan technology is the innovative Integrated Control, or I-CON system, which functions in one setting as a controller for the automatic climate control system, and in the other as a drive mode selector for Normal, Sport and Eco settings.
