Nissan Gives New Juke More Driver Tech and Safety Features

Almost a decade after it set the bar for compact crossovers through its distinctive personality and emphasis on fun, the next-generation Nissan JUKE arrives to reinvent the segment once again. With ProPILOT and connectivity, JUKE brings Nissan Intelligent Mobility – Nissan’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society – one step further.

AGILE PERFORMANCE

The JUKE is powered by an efficient 1.0-liter three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine with 117 PS, giving drivers improved performance, fuel economy and refinement. Available with an engaging 6-speed manual or sporty 7-speed dual-clutch (DCT) paddle-shift transmission, and a driving mode selector (Eco, Standard, Sport), drivers can effortlessly match their driving style to any driving scenario for maximum fun on the road.

Nissan’s advance ProPILOT technology, which offers electronically assisted steering, acceleration and braking, will be available on the JUKE for the first time. Designed for highway use in single-lane traffic, the ProPILOT system accelerates and slows down for the driver to maintain the right distance and speed and also keeps the car centred within the lane.

In addition, JUKE offers a full package of safety technologies, including Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Intervention as a Nissan premiere that is unique to the segment. Blind Spot Intervention warns the driver when a car gets into its blind spot and brings JUKE back in the lane.

Connectivity, Infotainment, and BOSE® Personal® Plus

With the new NissanConnect infotainment system, customers can use Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto to mirror their favourite smartphone apps on the 8-inch touch screen display. Drivers can also access TomTom Maps & Live Traffic or activate their In-Car WiFi to allow passengers connecting their laptops or tablets.

The NissanConnect Services app is the perfect mobile companion, offering customers control over multiple aspects of their car. Nissan JUKE owners can now check the door-lock status of their vehicle and lock or unlock their Nissan directly from their smartphone. For increased safety, drivers can also check their tyre pressure and oil level before departing on a trip.

To make JUKE drivers’ lives even easier, Google Assistant compatibility gives them control over functions including vehicle lights and sending destinations to the car’s navigation system by talking to their smart device.

Drivers and passengers can also play louder with the Bose® Personal® Plus sound system. With eight powerful speakers – including two sets of Bose UltraNearfield speakers integrated into both front seats headrests – listeners can enjoy immersive music in ultra-clear definition.

The all-new Nissan JUKE will continue to be produced at Nissan’s award-winning manufacturing plant in Sunderland, U.K. The first customer deliveries will take place at the end of November in European markets.
