Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September, the Juke Nismo will go on sale in the UK in January 2013 with first deliveries set for March. It has been developed by Nissan’s Nismo performance division in Japan and will be the first Nismo-badged road car for the European market and will cost from £19,995.
Power comes from an uprated version of Nissan’s 1.6-litre direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine which produces 200PS at 6,000rpm and 250Nm of torque between 2,400rpm and 4,800rpm. In front-wheel drive, six-speed manual form, the Juke Nismo is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 7.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 134mph.
The Juke Nismo will be available in three colours: Storm White, Pearl Black and Blade Silver. As well as a two-wheel drive six-speed manual transmission, the Juke Nismo will also be available with four-wheel drive and a CVT automatic gearbox too.
