Report: A next-gen Nissan Juke scheduled for 2017 release, could get hybrid version
Nissan’s Juke is nearing six years old and so thus, it’s nearing due date for replacement to make way for the second generation model.
According to AutoExpress, that second generation model should surface sometime in 2017.
The Juke remains to be a commendable seller for the brand, offering a quirky, but fun subcompact crossover at a reasonable price. So there’s not much expectation for any deviation from this tried, tested and proven formula.
The new Juke will ride on an all-new Renault-Nissan modular platform, internally named the Common Module Family chassis, or CMF-B. The Juke will share its backbone with the next-generation Micra as well.
Power should be supplied by an all-new 1.0L gasoline three-banger, with the choice of a 1.6L turbo-four and a 1.5L diesel for EUrope.
A hybrid system is said to be on the docket as well with a range-extended powertrain, rather than the conventional hybrid setup.
