MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 9 /CNW/ - Nissan Canada Inc. (NCI) today confirmed that an all-new small crossover SUV, the Nissan Juke, will join the Nissan lineup in Canada in the fall 2010. The European version of the dramatically styled Juke will be revealed to the media on February 10th and makes its global public premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The North American version of Juke is scheduled to debut at the New York Auto Show in late March.
The compact Juke, which was inspired by the Nissan Qazana concept car, was designed and developed to give customers a sporty crossover alternative to traditional small hatchback vehicles. In North America, Juke will join a strong tradition of Nissan crossovers - including the popular Nissan Murano and Rogue - in providing both dynamic style and an exhilarating driving experience.
The new Juke is highlighted by a highly distinctive design, which includes a robust stance, high waistline, complex curves, coupe-like profile and aggressive wheels and tires. The bold interior design features a wide centre console that takes its inspiration from a motorcycle fuel tank.
