2013 Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke is one of the most unique vehicles on the road, forgetting traditional design and design entirely and instead focusing on delivering a fun and compact package with individuality in mind. It received a number of minor changes related to equipment and colors for its second model year.

The Juke packs a potent punch
The Juke remains to be powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four, direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine with 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft. of torque. The Juke's all-wheel drive also features a torque vectoring system that provides a 50:50 front to rear split under normal conditions but can also vary it between right and left wheels.

In addition to an impressive array of powertrain technologies, the Juke comes with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, an independent MacPherson strut front suspension, and either a torsion beam rear suspension (FWD), or a multi-link rear suspension (AWD). The Juke also features both front and rear stabilizer bars. To guide this technologically equipped sport cross both on and off-road is a vehicle-speed-sensing electric power-assisted steering system.

What's inside counts
Step inside the Juke and you might be surprised to find seating for five along with a cockpit-like feel and arrangement for the front occupants.

Juke also features I-CON, or Integrated Control, which is an air conditioning system with three settings: Sport, Normal and Eco, each with unique settings based on preference. Seats come wrapped in cloth, with an available premium cloth or leather, all of which come with a standard six-way manual driver's seat and four-way manual front passenger seat.

The Juke also features USB and iPod support, along with six speakers and an available Rockford Fosgate subwoofer system. For those looking to drop a little extra coin, Nissan also offers push button start, a five-inch navigation screen, XM satellite radio and a power moon roof.

Newly added are three colors, including Atomic Gold, Brilliant Silver, and Pearl White, making the total eight.

More equipment
Newly added for the Juke's second model year are the Rearview Monitor feature when users opt for the Navigation Package on SV trims. Ticking the same box on SV and SL trims means buyers now also get a newly revised Rockford Fosgate ecoPUNCH audio system.
