2013 Nissan Juke Nismo – Price & Engine & Design
2013 Nissan Juke Nismo was developed by the Japanese manufacturer’s motorsport division Nismo and Nissan’s Cranfield Technical Centre in Britain. The new model will debut on the European market just in the months to come (most likely Feb-March 2013), the Juke Nismo will then be made available in Japan before finally making its way to North America at a yet-to-be-determined later date.
The new Nismo crossover will be equipped with the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, developing 200 hp at 6000 rpm and 184 pound-feet of torque. We are talking about an enhanced version of the most powerful engine offered in the current Juke range, which will make the Japanese crossover even more dynamic.
To enhance the dynamism, the Japanese have fitted the new 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo with a sports chassis with low ground clearance and firmer suspension while the standard alloy wheels are 19-inch.
At the aesthetic level, Nissan Juke Nismo will take most of the elements of the concept presented in a world premiere in March at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The Bumpers, front spoiler, front grille and side skirts will have a different design, also the wing mirror cases are aerodynamically optimized.
2013 Nissan Juke Nismo interior will be different – new pedals, sporty dashboard gauges, redesigned side doors, sporty leather shell seats and steering wheel. Juke’s center console is painted with metallic paint, while the standard model surfaces receive a matte finish.
“The Juke personalization program meets the needs of buyers who dare to be different… And this is just the beginning. Nissan has ambitious plans to increase the design options for buyers still further and will roll out more customizable elements – including interior components – as the program develops,” according to the Nissan officials.
In 2012, Nissan’s Sunderland plant produced 510,000 units, historic high for the British factory. Two years before reaching this critical figure, the plant in Sunderland marked an unprecedented record for a car factory in the United Kingdom: production of over 400,000 units in a year. The factory was opened in 1986 and the rhythm increased from 12.5 units per hour up to 118 units per hour at the two lines.
