Following the release a shadowy teaser released last month, Nissan has now revealed a lot more of the second-generation Juke as it underwent testing at the Millbrook testing track in the United Kingdom.
No, it’s not the car in all its glory, as the example you see here is dressed in a lot of camouflage. However, much of the new crossover’s design is visible, and while it isn’t as quirky as its predecessor, it’s still rather striking thing to look at.
At the front, the Juke wears a pronounced version of the brand’s V-motion grille that meets with slender lighting elements, which appear less divisive compared to the outgoing model’s high-mounted units.
A dual-tier approach is retained, with the main headlamps hiding underneath those square covers. As the previous teaser indicates, these feature a three-pointed design for more flair. Further down, the lower apron sports a more angular intake, with small fog lamps tucked away in the bumper corners.
The car’s side profile also undergoes a radical transformation, with less prominent wheel arches and a distinct character line that stretches to the rear. One aspect that is carried over from the first generation is the shape of the side windows, along with the positioning of the rear door handles.
Around back, the bulbous rear of old has been made more angular, while the lower section is less “busy” as well. Elsewhere, the boomerang taillights have been replaced with a more conventional two-piece arrangement. This appears to give the Juke a larger aperture into the luggage compartment, with a tailgate that has a less rakish glass piece.
Other details that Nissan are happy to reveal include 19-inch alloy wheels that will come as standard, the adoption of ProPILOT technology and that the new Juke is larger in size for a roomier interior.
The new Juke will ride on the CMF-B platform, which is also used for the Renault Captur, and the engine line-up should include a mix of small-capacity turbocharged petrol and diesel options, as well as a 1.6 litre petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. We’ll only know more details when the Juke makes its full debut on September 3.
