The world premiere of the Nissan Juke crossover took place at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. The car is based on the Qazana concept, introduced in 2009, built on the Renault / Nissan B platform. Its length is 4135 mm, width - 1765, height - 1570, wheelbase - 2530 mm, ground clearance - 175 mm. The amount of luggage, probably for the sake of minimizing size, is quite modest - 251 liters (830 liters with the rear sofa unfolded). Juke harmoniously combines the small size, sporting spirit and technical characteristics of an SUV. Its extraordinary appearance strikes at first sight, several styles are used in the exterior: the massive bottom of the car with plastic lining shows an obvious relationship with an SUV, while the top with a coupe-shaped silhouette, narrow windows, hidden rear door handles clearly resembles a sports car. The design of the exterior of the Nissan Juke can be both fans and opponents, but we can safely say that he will not leave anyone indifferent.
Extraordinary decisions of designers have found continuation inside.

The sporting spirit of the Nissan Juke also reflects its dynamic performance and, above all, the new turbocharged gasoline engine with a volume of 1.6 liters. issuing 190 hp power with a maximum torque of 240 Nm. The engine is equipped with a direct fuel injection system (increases power and torque, reduces harmful emissions), a turbocharger and an intermediate air cooler (allows to achieve high peak power and torque), as well as a mechanism for continuous change of valve timing, controls the intake and exhaust valves (provides high torque throughout the rev range). The engine parts use friction-reducing technology (carbon coating for valve tappets, "mirror" surfaces of camshafts, piston rings with ceramic coating).

This power unit provides the Juke with excellent dynamics due to its impressive torque (240 Nm) and is characterized by good fuel economy and low exhaust emissions levels.
The car is equipped with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive ALL MODE 4X4-i with an advanced system of targeted transmission of torque TORQUE VECTOR. This system improves the car’s handling and reduces understeer on bends. Along with the redistribution of torque between the front and rear axles in the proportion of 50:50, this system distributes it between the wheels of different sides. As for the front-wheel drive versions, they come with MacPherson struts and a type “H” rear suspension with a torsion beam and guide levers. All-wheel drive versions are equipped with a multi-link rear suspension, similar to the Nissan Qashqai design.

The basic equipment includes an audio system with a CD player and AUX connector, an optimum transmission indicator and a tire pressure sensor. In versions of 1.5 dCi and 1.6 DIG-T in the "base" in addition to this alloy wheels, air conditioning, trip computer and height-adjustable driver's seat.
