Nissan Juke Tops 15,000 Orders in Europe

The EUR 16,500 price tag set for Nissan Juke’s base level model seemed to have attracted more customers than projected, as the new model has registered over 15,000 orders across Europe. The Juke, the latest addition to Nissan’s crossover range, is seen by the company as a real head-turner and is expected to be a hit among younger consumers.

Available in Visia, Acenta and Tekna equipment levels, the Juke offers 16-inch alloy wheels, ESP, six airbags, sports seats and air conditioning. The Acenta comes with 17-inch alloys, climate control, Bluetooth with USB connectivity and the Nissan Dynamic Control System, as entry level standard features. There are also two optional packages, the Sport Pack and the Nissan Connect.

The range-topping Tekna includes standard features like leather upholstery, Nissan Connect, a reversing camera and an Intelligent Key with engine start button.

Juke is available in a choice of three engine units, namely two petrol and one diesel. The entry level petrol engine is a 1.6 liter one that offers 117 hp and 157 Nm of torque. This is followed by a turbocharged 1.6 liter unit, which develops 190 hp and a maximum torque of 240 Nm. The 1.5 liter dCi engine comes with 110 hp and 240 Nm of torque.

"We have been feeling very optimistic about the potential for success that Juke offers Nissan in Europe, but we to receive in excess of 15,000 orders in just four weeks is far beyond our expectations. This demand for Juke underlines our initial intention - to meet the needs of customers who are totally uninspired by the traditional offerings currently available in the European small car segment," Vincent Wijnen, Nissan's European VP for Marketing, said in a release.
