2017 Nissan Juke Priced in the U.S. from $20,250

Introduced in 2010, facelifted in 2014, and due to be replaced next year, the Nissan Juke subcompact crossover continues to sell like hot cakes. But before the second generation drops by, the current model will soldier on for 2017. Other than sporting the same retail price as the previous model year, the mid- and upper-range 2017 Juke models happen to boast more standard kit.

First of all, let’s starts with enhancements. For 2017, the Nissan Juke in SV and SL trim adds 17-inch machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels. The SV also adds heated cloth front seats and heated mirrors, goodies that were previously part of the Cold Weather Package. Models equipped with the 5.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system are gifted with enhanced voice recognition software for the satellite navigation and audio systems.

That said, the lineup starts with the 2017 Nissan Juke S Xtronic FWD, which kicks off from $20,250 not accounting for the $940 destination and handling charge. All-wheel-drive is an $1,850 option on the entry-level model. Next up, we have the SV Xtronic ($22,550 and $24,400), SL Xtronic ($25,240 and $26,940), plus Nismo models in front- and all-wheel-drive forms. Those who go for the Nismo FWD will have to settle for a manual transmission. The Nismo AWD, by comparison, comes with the continuously variable tranny.

For the range-topping Nissan Juke Nismo RS Xtronic AWD, you’ll need to lay down $30,020 plus $940 for the destination and handling. That sum buys you 215 hp and 210 lb-ft from 3,600 to 4,800 rpm, coming courtesy of a 1.6-liter turbo engine. Mind you, the Juke Nismo RS with the Xtronic transmission produces less than its manual-equipped and FWD sibling: 211 hp and 184 lb-ft. The non-RS Nismo and lesser models make do with 188 hp and 177 lb-ft.

Regardless of trim level, drivetrain, and output, all grades of the 2017 Nissan Juke include push button start, RearView Monitor, NissanConnectSM with Mobile Apps, USB connectivity, Bluetooth for your mobile phone, Siri Eyes Free and Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, as well as a 5.0-inch color display. Except for the Nismo models, Juke models from the 2017 model year can be configured in one of eight interior color packs: White, Matte Black, Black Purple, Carbon Fiber Look, Electric Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Red.
