The Nissan Juke (Japanese: 日産・ジューク, Nissan Jūku) is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan since 2010. The production version made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March, and was introduced to North America at the 2010 New York International Auto Show to be sold for the 2011 model year.
The second-generation model was revealed for the European market in September 2019, offering a larger dimension by utilising the newer Renault–Nissan CMF-B platform. This generation marks the withdrawal of the model from most markets outside Europe and Australasia to make way for the Kicks.

On 11 February 2009, Nissan announced that the model would go into production at the Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK (NMUK) plant in Sunderland, United Kingdom, during 2010 following its appearance as the Nissan Qazana concept car at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
The Juke was designed at Nissan Design Europe in London and refined at Nissan's Design Centre in Japan. It is based on the Nissan B platform. The Sunderland plant (NMUK) manufactures for the European market, Australia and New Zealand, while Nissan's facility in Oppama, Japan, produces the vehicle for all other countries. Both Sunderland and Oppama are suppliers of the all-wheel drive variant. The Purwakarta plant (NMI) in Indonesia assembled the Juke for the domestic market and Thailand with a local content of 40 percent, front-wheel-drive only.
A rebadged version of the first-generation Juke was sold in China as the Infiniti ESQ.
A NISMO version powered by an uprated variant of the standard 1.6-litre turbo joined the lineup for the 2013 model year and was followed by a NISMO RS for the 2014 model year.
The car's profile is dominated by the prominent wheel arches and the body's high waistline which contrast with the slim side windows, which is a modern interpretation of "coke bottle styling" popular during the 1960s and 1970s. Echoing a style first seen on the Maxima, Nissan's high performance electric coupé concept shown at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the glasshouse resembles a crash helmet visor. A coupé-like appearance is achieved by the rear door handles being located near the C-pillars, within the window frame. Locating the rear door handles within the window frame is a Nissan styling tradition, begun with the 1985 Nissan Pathfinder. The sport motif continues inside with the red- or grey-painted centre console bearing similarity to a motorcycle fuel tank.
The front end features a stacked array of lights. Running lamps and indicators are mounted atop the front wings, their lenses visible from inside the cabin as an aid to maneuvering. Below them, under the lower edges of an expansive, curved grille, the main headlamps are intended to be reminiscent of those fitted to rally cars during the 1960s and 1970s. Where fitted, fog lamps are situated on a third level within the sump guard at the bottom.
The Juke features seating for five (two in front, three in back). The rear seats have a 60/40 split and can be folded down independently in order to carry larger objects. The rear cargo area is small but features additional storage beneath the floor (front wheel drive models only).
The center portion of the dash contains the radio and the I-CON control (if so equipped—see below). Depending on market and trim level the Juke may be equipped with: iPod or USB connectivity, NissanConnect GPS navigation, rear-view camera and Bluetooth audio. A somewhat deep glovebox on the passenger side houses an iPod connector (if so equipped).
Common to all but base models is Nissan's Integrated Control System, dubbed I-CON: a command module that sits in the lower dashboard, which manages both the climate control and the vehicle's drive mode (Normal, Sport or Eco). Its display and nomenclature change according to the function selected. Among the available display data are fuel efficiency stats, real-time G-force measurements and turbo boost pressure.
In Japan, where the car was launched on 9 June 2010, orders totalled 10,943 units in its first month, surpassing Nissan's monthly target of 1,300. By 5 October 2010, Japanese sales had increased to 20,000 while European and US figures also exceeded expectations with orders for 30,000 and 17,500 cars taken for the respective markets. Four levels are specified. The RX and RS models are equipped with the HR15DE I4 engine, while the MR16DDT is supplied for the 16GT and 16GT FOUR.
Three trim levels were initially available with the MR16DDT engine: S, SV and SL. The base engine is rated at 188 hp (140 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 177 lb⋅ft (240 N⋅m) of torque at 2,000 rpm. The base S model is available only with a CVT transmission and lacks the I-CON display. The SV model adds I-CON, optional 6-speed manual transmission and moonroof. The SL model adds leather seats, USB connectivity and a rear-view camera. All-wheel drive with torque vectoring is optional on all trims but cannot be paired with a manual transmission.
After the 2017 model year, the Juke was discontinued in the United States.
S level with either manual transmission or CVT. SV level, I-CON system is NOT standard and is available as an option. SL level, I-CON system is standard, Navigation system is available. The Juke was discontinued in Canada after the 2017 model year.
Five trim levels are indicated for the HR16DE, K9K and MR16DDT engines: Visia, Acenta (also available with Sport and Premium packs), Tekna, Nismo and Nismo RS. In 2012, Nissan replaced the limited edition Juke Kuru with the Juke Shiro model. The Shiro was a limited edition Juke with white accents throughout the interior including white stitching on the leather seats, gear shift and steering wheel as well as several other aesthetic options.
The car was launched in the UK on 24 September 2010.
Two trim levels: ST and Ti, are available. Both are front-wheel drive and are powered by the HR16DE engine with the sole transmission, the XTRONIC CVT. Some features on the higher-spec Ti include 17-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Control System (DCS) drive modes, intelligent key with push start button and dual front, side and curtain airbags.
Locally assembled by Nissan Motor Indonesia (NMI), the Juke for the Indonesian market comes with two trim levels: RX and Red, with one engine type: HR15DE I4. Both trims are only available with XTRONIC CVT. The Red model, only available in Indonesia, adds roof spoiler, different grille colour and bigger audio display screen. On 12 February 2015, Nissan Motor Indonesia added "Revolt" trim to the lineup, while introducing facelift for Indonesian Juke. Between 2014 and 2017, the locally assembled Juke was exported to Thailand. Production ceased in September 2018.
The Juke sold in Chile is the one made in the UK, and sales began in 2012. Three trim levels are offered: Sense, Advance and Exclusive, with two engines, 1.6 and 1.6 Turbo, with the turbo engine only available in the Exclusive trim level. All of them come with CVT except the Exclusive Turbo, and the AWD option is only offered in the Exclusive.
At the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Nissan unveiled the revised Nissan Juke for 2015 model year, which went on sale in the summer of 2014. On the exterior, the revision is basically limited to LED Daytime Running lights in front, new front and rear bumper styling and a few new colour schemes. While new standard equipment includes a rear-view camera, keyless go and Bluetooth hands-free phone system.
New for 2013, the NISMO version differs from the base Juke in styling changes to the bumpers and skirts, interior styling, modified suspension and steering, 18 in (46 cm) wheels, an unspecified "torque vectoring" option, and engine tuning. The engine is rated at 197 hp (147 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 184 lb⋅ft (249 N⋅m) of torque at 2,000 rpm. For the American market there is also a higher-end Nismo RS variant, with upgraded standard equipment (Recaro front seats, carbon fiber). The engine is upgraded to 215 hp (160 kW) at 6,300 rpm and 210 lb⋅ft (285 N⋅m) at 3,600 rpm.
The New York Times review was generally positive, but: "About that styling: I love it, but you might hate it. The face is dominated by bug-eye headlamps, and the running lights bulge up above the hood such that they’re in the driver’s line of sight. At night, the effect is of large bio-luminescent slugs lounging atop the front fenders. Admittedly, it’s more appealing than I’m making it sound."
The Juke-R is a limited production run Juke with a 3.8-litre VR engine from the Nissan GT-R that produces 545 hp (406 kW). Although Nissan planned to produce 17 or 23 units, only a total of five Juke-Rs were produced.
Beginning in 2014, the Juke has been sold in China as the Infiniti ESQ. Debuted at 2014 Chengdu Auto Show, it is based on the pre-facelift Juke Nismo with its upgraded suspension, aero enhancements and 18-inch wheels. It uses the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 147 kW (200 PS; 197 hp).
As of 2016, the ESQ is the only Infiniti model not to have a name beginning with the letter Q.

The second-generation Juke was unveiled on 3 September 2019 in London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona and Cologne. The vehicle is larger and based on an all-new CMF-B platform shared with the Renault Captur and Renault Clio. The new platform makes extensive use of high-strength steel which is claimed to offer better stability, performance, and cornering capabilities. Despite that, the second-generation Juke is lighter by around 23 kg (51 lb) compared to the previous-generation model.
Since it is larger, Nissan claimed the rear-seat knee room is increased by 58 mm (2.3 in), rear head room by 11 mm (0.4 in), and the boot capacity is now 20 percent bigger at 422 L (14.9 cu ft). The new Juke adopts an all-new dashboard layout with a 'floating' central display, a new multifunction steering wheel, and a reduced number of buttons on the center console.
The sole engine option is the 1.0-litre three-cylinder DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine which produces 117 PS (115 hp; 86 kW) and 180 N⋅m (18.4 kg⋅m; 133 lb⋅ft).
The second-generation Juke went in production in October 2019. Nissan continued to build the Juke at its plant in Sunderland, UK. Customer deliveries begun in late November in European markets.
For most markets outside Europe and Australasia, the second-generation Juke is never introduced as it is replaced by the V platform-based Kicks. The Kicks was revealed in North America in 2017 for 2018 model year, directly replacing the Juke. The Juke was also phased out in Japan and several Southeast Asian markets in favour of the Kicks e-Power.
The second-generation Juke was awarded a full five-star rating by Euro NCAP.
It was reported that customers of the Juke mainly consisted of young buyers and the elderly, resulting in an average age in the late 40s.
In Europe, it is Nissan's second best-selling car behind the Qashqai. U.S. sales of the Juke slowed in 2015, but the crossover sold 38,000 units in 2013 and 2014, and about 36,000 in 2011 and 2012.
