Nissan's budget 'off-roader'

  • New Nissan has 4x4 looks and competitive pricing
  • 1.5-litre diesel engine for company car drivers
  • Priced from £12,795, on sale in September

Nissan's quirky looking Juke crossover model will be priced from just £12,795 when deliveries begin in September.

The new five-door model blends compact dimensions with chunky off-road styling, and will be offered with four-wheel drive as well as more frugal front-wheel-drive versions.

Power comes from a choice of three engines: a 1.6-litre petrol with 117bhp or a turbocharged version with 190bhp. For company car drivers the familiar Nissan 1.5-litre dCi diesel with 110bhp is also offered. Diesel models are priced from £14,145.

Standard equipment levels are strong across the range, with entry level Visia versions coming with 16-inch alloy wheels, ESP stability control, six airbags, sports seats and air conditioning as standard.
