Sometimes, it's hard to imagine that the Nissan Juke is already eight years old. With its styling that's still being talked about even to this day, one could say that the Juke has aged reasonably well. Of course, the looks are still up for debate for some, but the fact that it's still a topic is saying something.
But time has caught up to the Nissan Juke, and it's well due for a full model change. An all-new model is coming later this year, and Nissan has even announced its launch date. Come September 3, the second-generation Juke will make its world premiere. To get the ball rolling, Nissan has shown a sneak peek of the all-new model, and it looks like it will still be the eccentric looking crossover you'll like...or loathe.
In the teaser photo, we see that the 2020 Juke retains its signature light arrangement at the front. That means you get high-set LED daytime running lights and bumper-mounted headlights. Also, it gets a larger 'V-motion' grill, to put it in line with the rest of the new Nissan range. From what we can pick up from the photo, the all-new Juke looks more aggressive than the soon to be outgoing model. Nissan design chief Alfonso Albaisa went as far as saying it will look like an, 'Urban meteor with a nasty attitude'.
As for the rest of the car, it is expected to be longer and wider than before, judging from the spy photos floating around the internet. The next-generation Juke is also touted to ride on the new CMF-B platform. If so, it shares the same architecture as the Nissan Micra/March, as well as the Renault Clio. Engines are likely to be shared with the Micra/March as well, meaning it could get small-capacity turbocharged mills. Nissan's electric e-Power tech could also power the future Juke.
It is possible that the 2020 Nissan Juke will make its Asian debut at the upcoming 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, which kicks off in October.
