2022 Nissan Juke Review, USA, Interior, Release date, Price


The second generation of Nissan’s smallest crossover has been around for a while and we can say that the reception is pretty good. Compared to the original model, the new one is bigger, more attractive, more practical and better equipped. However, the competition in this segment is pretty tough and that’s why many believe that the 2022 Nissan Juke could bring a couple of updates. At this point, the officials are still quiet, but our insiders speculate about the new engine option in the offer.

Despite the possibility of a new engine and other updates, we have no doubt that the overall design will remain the same. So, you may count on familiar design characteristics, which have a lot of good things to offer. What we like about this model is its styling, as well as the interior design that looks really upscale. Also, there is a long list of standard and available equipment, while the infotainment system is way better compared to the original one.

Despite the potential novelties, we don’t believe that the 2022 Nissan Juke could arrive much earlier than usual, which means it should hit showrooms in the last quarter of 2021.

The overall design of the 2022 Nissan Juke definitely won’t change. You may count on the same mechanics, based on Nissan’s familiar CMF platform, which has been significantly updated for the new Juke. Even the wheelbase is four inches longer, which is a pretty big increase for this segment.

The styling has always been a strong selling point of this crossover and there is no doubt that the next year’s model will continue in the same way. Of course, there is always a chance to see a couple of minor updates, such as new color options. Anything more than that would be a real surprise.

The same thing goes for the interior design. We expect to see the same cabin, which looks really good. Compared to the previous generation, the overall build quality is at a much higher level, while materials are also much finer. Furthermore, there is a presence of numerous tech goodies, which make everything look even more upscale. Among them, you can also find the biggest head-up display in the class.

As we already mentioned, the new generation is longer by about four inches. Obviously, this makes a big impact in terms of interior space. The cargo area is notably bigger, while we also like the second row of seats, which now accommodates adults in a pretty nice fashion.

2022 Nissan Juke Could Get New Engine

The current model looks very attractive and it’s really nice to drive. However, its engine doesn’t follow the aesthetical character of the crossover and offers rather mediocre performances. Of course, we are talking about a small 1.0-liter three-cylinder unit, which puts out around 115 horsepower. That’s enough for nothing more than average performances, though a good thing is that you can choose between manual and DCT gearboxes, as well as choose different drive modes.

For the next year, we could see a new, more powerful engine option in the offer. However, the officials are still quiet, so we can only speculate about the powertrain. Some sources suggest a new hybrid version, which uses a 1.2-liter engine, comes with an electric motor and 1.57-kWh battery pack, with a max output of 127 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. On the other side, some rumors speculate about the possibility to see a diesel version in the offer once again.

Trim Levels

We don’t expect that the trim level organization could be much different, so the 2022 Nissan Juke should come with familiar variants in the offer. Therefore, Visia would remain the most affordable trim level in the offer, with a pretty short list of standard equipment. This is a pretty basic version, which comes with steel wheels, non-touchscreen infotainment, Radio, USB and Bluetooth. Still, you get things like cruise control and LED headlights.

If you want more than that but don’t want to spend significantly more money, the Acenta may seem like a good choice. This trim adds standard features like a touchscreen interface, rearview camera, alloy wheels etc.

The N-Connecta brings few more things to the list of standard equipment. You may count on navigation, leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, ambient interior lighting etc.

Tekna already looks pretty luxurious, as it comes with 19-inch wheels and leather upholstery. The list of standard equipment also includes adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, Bose audio system etc.

Finally, there is the Enigma trim, with black wheels, black roof, fog lights and several more upgrades.

2022 Nissan Juke Release Date and Price

We expect to see the 2022 Nissan Juke sometime late in the year, probably within the last quarter. Also, the price should remain pretty similar to the current model, which starts at around £16,809 in the UK. The European version starts at around €17.500.
