Nissan has finally launched an impressive road car in the continent of Europe. With its new 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo, the company has finally paved its way into the continent. The new vehicle was unveiled at the 2013 Chicago Motor Show, which was organised a while back. Also, Nissan has added many changes to the newer version, and the SUV has become much better that it was ever before!
The Nissan Juke has been quite popular since its debut in 2010 for the unconventional designing that it features and the compactness that it features. Although it is a SUV with a full seating capacity of five people, it is quite compact and is often confused with a hatchback. With the capacity of seating two people in the front and three in the back, the Nissan Juke Nismo has become one of the favourites among those who like SUVs with unique designs.
The new 2013 Nissan Juke Nismo has been made better than before in many ways. One of the most prominent one of these aspects is the engine that the company will be using an improved engine in the new model. Nissan has upgraded to an impressive 1600cc four cylinder engine which incorporates the amazing turbo charged direct injection technology. The engine is capable of delivering a total power output of 197 horsepower and a torque of 184 lb. - ft. Also, the company will provide customers with the option of choosing from any of these two transmission systems - a six speed manual transmission or a CVT gearbox. There are different models with feature both front wheel drives as well as all wheel drives, providing customers with a good variety of options to choose from.
There are some visible changes in the new version of the SUV as well. You will certainly notice the larger wheels and the lowered suspension quite easily. The 2013 Juke Nismo uses wheels of 18 inch diameter each. Also, the vehicle will flaunt day time running LED lamps installed within the head lamps as well. You will also find a well groomed interior cabin which now features beautiful seats. The steering wheel of the vehicle is also changed to be quite a sporty one. The company also claims that the driving experience of the vehicle has been made much better as the suspensions, steering and transmissions have been enhanced.
The company seems to be quite excited with the Nismo version of its Juke Crossover SUV. Andy Palmer, the Executive Vice President of Nissan (Global Product Planning) was quoted as saying, "Nismo is about providing innovation and excitement for everyone, and there's no better place to start than with the Juke, our critically acclaimed and highly successful compact crossover. Oozing an attitude that has really struck a chord with buyers across Europe, it was the obvious choice for the Nismo team to showcase its design, engineering and personalisation expertise." The 2013 Juke Nismo is indeed an amazing car, both in terms of looks as well as performance, and doesn't come at hefty prices either! We sure hope for the SUV to make it big in the European markets!
