The exterior of the Juke is its best feature. Juke looks like a raised hatchback, and at the same time it resembles a compact SUV. The styling is unique and bold, sporty and dynamic. There have been minor changes in the design of the 2015 Juke.
The front headlamps have been redesigned and come with high intensity LED daytime lamps. The headlamps now come with Xenon lamps. The rear bumper has an aggressive look, which goes with the boomerang shaped tail lamps.
The new Juke now comes in ten colors, including three new shades – Solid Red, Sunlight Yellow Metallic and Ink Blue Metallic.
The previous Juke was slightly disappointing, especially in when it came to cabin space and boot space. The quality of the material was nothing to write home about.
However, the 2015 Juke comes with major improvements on these fronts. The boot space has increased by 40% in the new Juke. The interior styling and quality of materials used in the 2015 edition is much better, making the cabin of Juke a much more pleasant place to be in.
However, rear seat space is pretty cramped as compared to other cars in the same segment, largely contributed by the low roofline.
The 2015 Nissan Juke comes with significant changes that address the concerns of the earlier version. It makes for a perfect car for those who want to stand out in a crowd. It is peppy and fun to drive.
