According to the latest reports, the next generation of the company’s entry-level crossover will come in the second half of next year. The new model should continue with the familiar flavor, though we are counting on a completely new design. This refers to all aspects, mainly mechanics. This area of the crossover is way too old for modern standards of the automotive industry and the new generation will fix all the drawback of it. We are about to see a new platform, which will bring new engines as well. Finally, count on a completely new interior, with better materials and lot more tech features. As we already mentioned, the new model should arrive in the second half of next year.

Lots of strange reports were coming about the 2020 Nissan Jukein the last 12 months. Experts were eagerly waiting to see the redesign, while the North American version was discontinued and replaced with the new model called Kicks. It looked like the company is will to discontinue this
2020 Nissan Juke Platform
The biggest problem with the current generation is its platform. If you don’t know, this model still rides on an old Nissan B platform, which dates from the early 2000s and derives from the original Micra. Interestingly, the problem with it is not in driving characteristics but in the complicated production process which, as you may presume, has a bad effect on price. Therefore, the new model will switch to the company’s new CMFarchitecture, which is reserved for pretty much everything from everything that came from the Renault-Nissan Alliance in past few years.
With this one, the 2020 Nissan Juke will come with significant improvements in many aspects. It will grow bigger, feature longer wheelbase, but save some weight at the same time. More importantly, production costs will be lower, which automatically means more profit for the company. After all, we doubt that the new model will be much cheaper than the outgoing one.
2020 Nissan Juke Styling
Here is another intriguing aspect of the 2020 Nissan Juke. As you probably know, its North American replacement came with a pretty conventional appearance that completely follows brand’s new design language.

In practice, which could mean something like a new V-motion grille in a combination with recognizable, high-mounted headlights and that sort of things.
2020 Nissan Juke Interior
In this aspect, we have no doubt that the new model will come significantly improved. The 2020 Nissan Juke will get bigger and, therefore, you can bet on more space on the inside. This should be highly beneficial for passengers on the rear bench, which will definitely enjoy more legroom. Cargo is may become more spacious as well, but don’t expect miracles. On the other side, expect a bit of improvement in terms of materials quality, as well as more style. Besides more attractive dashboard, the 2020 Nissan Juke will definitely come with more standard equipment, especially in terms of the latest tech features. Among other gadgetry and tech goodies, count on a 7-inch touchscreen already in base models.
2020 Nissan Juke Engine
A new platform usually means new engines and 2020 Nissan Juke won’t be different. One of the biggest novelties of this redesign will be a new1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, which will power base models. Rest of the engine lineup should come with familiar units. Count on familiar 1.6-liter turbo inline-four, with a max output of 190 horsepower. Renault’s 1.5-liter should come as well, though with slight improvements in terms of power, fuel economy

In any case, we are pretty sure that the company will present some kind of a prototype first, on some of the upcoming major shows.
