Nissan Juke Coming to U.S.
Nissan confirmed that the Juke, an all-new small crossover revealed early in March at the Geneva Motor Show, will join the Nissan lineup for the U.S. in fall 2010. Designed as an alternative to a traditional small hatchback car, the Juke features dramatic styling inspired by the Nissan Qazana concept, but also displays a family resemblance to Nissan’s larger Murano and Rogue crossovers.
The Juke show car revealed in Geneva shows the unique design elements that give Juke such a distinctive personality. The sloped roofline give the Juke a coupe-like profile with complex curves at the rear window to create a signature look. A high waistline, aggressive fender arches, large wheels and headlights actually positioned in the hood emphasis the tall stance. Inside the wide center console is said to be inspired by a motorcycle fuel tank.
