Nissan Juke crossover coming to the U.S. in September

Nissan officials said Monday that we can expect to see an addition to their crossover lineup with the introduction of the Nissan Juke this September. Built on the same platform as the Nissan Versa, the Juke will supplant the Rogue as Nissan’s entry-level crossover. Much of the styling detail is borrowed from the Qazana concept that Nissan showed in Geneva this past march.

During a meeting with journalists on Monday at the 2010 North America International Auto Show, Nissan Americas Chairman Carlos Tavares said “We are doing so well with the Rogue that there is no reason to think we won’t do better with the additional of a smaller crossover,”

In addition to the Juke, Nissan has seven launches planned for 2010 including the Nissan Leaf in December and a 40th-Anniversary edition of the Z. The 2011 Infiniti QX will debut at the 2010 New York Auto Show.
