press release from Nissan @ Paris motoshow finally reveals data for the Nismo and I am for one very disappointed1.6 turbo petrol, 197bhp, 0-62mph in 7.8 secs2 articles into todays pressNissan is launching its re-born NISMO sub-division in Europe with a new sportier version of its successful Juke small crossover. Following the Juke NISMO edition's first public appearance supporting Nissan's Le Mans 24hr race campaign in June, the production-ready model made its motor show debut today in Paris. While
there are plenty of cosmetic changes over the regular model, the Juke
NISMO is much more than a styling package as it adds some zing to the crossover model via an engine and chassis tune. Powering
the Juke NISMO is an uprated version of the DiG-T model's 1.6-litre,
direct injection turbocharged petrol engine delivering 197Hp (200PS) at
6,000 rpm and 250Nm between 2,400-4,800 rpm, an increase of 9Hp and 10Nm
respectively. Nissan will offer the Juke NISMO in both 2WD and 4WD variants, the latter equipped with a CVT gearbox as standard. The
2WD model accelerates from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in 7.8 seconds and
has a maximum speed of 215 km/h (134 mph), while the 4WD model sprints
from 0-100km/h in 8.2 seconds and tops out at 200 km/h (124 mph). Nissan
says that, even though the NISMO model offers improved performance over
the standard 1.6-litre DiG-T model, fuel economy and CO2 emissions "are
expected to be unaffected". The
car's chassis has been re-tuned to deliver improved cornering
performance, grip and direct steering feel. According to the automaker,
spring rates have been increased by 10 per cent, while the dampers and
steering system have been modified. The
exterior package comprises an aerodynamic kit with new lower front and
rear bumpers, wider wings and sill side skirts, along with a modified
grille and tailgate spoiler. The Juke NISMO rolls on 18-inch alloy
wheels shod in 225/45 R18 performance tires. Inside
the cabin, which is revealed here for the first time, the NISMO
treatment brings redesigned sport seats, steering wheel, pedals, gauges,
gear knob and door trims. Seating, steering and door surfaces are
trimmed in Alcantara with accent red stitching. Andy
Palmer, Executive Vice President Global Product Planning, commented:
"The introduction of Juke NISMO further cements our dedication to
provide innovation and excitement for everyone. The Juke, with its
radical design and pioneering attitude, is the natural choice to be one
of the first Nissan models to receive the mythical performance and
distinctive design treatment from our NISMO specialists." The
Juke NISMO will be built at Nissan's manufacturing plant in Sunderland,
UK, alongside the other models of the series, with European sales to
begin early next year. Nissan said pricing will be announced closer to
launch.Nissan Juke Nismo revealed

Nissan Offical Press ReleaseINNOVATIVE PERFORMANCE: JUKE NISMO INTRODUCES EXCITING NEW NISMO ROAD CAR RANGE Juke NISMO to be the first NISMO-badged road car in EuropeDesigned and developed by Nissan NISMO division in JapanRevised exterior and interior stylingPowered by 200PS 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged engineAvailable with two transmissions: 2WD manual transmission or 4WD CVTSpecial chassis tuned for a more engaging, exhilarating and exciting drive with superior handling and agilitySales start in Europe early 2013 PARIS (27 September, 2012)
Following its first public appearance supporting Nissan's Le Mans 24hr
race campaign in June, the production-ready Juke NISMO makes its Motor
Show debut just 210km east in Paris. The
Juke NISMO represents two exciting firsts for Nissan. Not only is it
the first in Europe in a series of NISMO (NISsan MOtorsport)production
models, it also marks the arrival of the first accessible performance
variant of the best-selling UK-built compact crossover. Having
pioneered the compact crossover sector with the launch of the Juke in
2010, Nissan is breaking more new ground with the NISMO version.
Previously shown as a concept at the Tokyo and Geneva international
Motor Shows, the production version of the Juke NISMO features the same
DNA that runs through Nissan's most successful competition cars. From
the classic Skyline racers of the late 1980s to Super GT in Japanese
racing and the all-conquering GT-R GT1 in the world series, NISMO-built
cars have become synonymous with innovative engineering, agility,
excitement and race-winning dynamics. Nissan
is embarking on a bold plan to develop a full NISMO product range. The
Juke NISMO will spearhead the line-up, with other models set to follow
in its wheeltracks. All variants will be developed with NISMO
engineering - Nissan's motorsport division in Japan - and will offer
distinctive design and individuality as well as sports orientated
handling, performance and excitement. The
Nissan Juke NISMO combines the radical design of the standard Juke with
sporting enhancements influenced by NISMO's motor sport expertise. The
additions include a new aerodynamics package that gives the Juke an even
more efficient, dynamic and powerful design. The new model features
lower front and rear bumpers, wider wings and sill side skirts, along
with a modified grille and tailgate spoiler that controls airflow over
the rear of the car. Being a true NISMO model, the new aero pack isn't
just for show but offers genuine air flow improvements inspired by
motorsport experiences. Bold new 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/45 R18 tyres offer improved grip, and further boost the Juke's on-road presence. The
NISMO treatment continues inside the cabin - revealed for the first
time as a world premier at the Paris Show - where the seats, steering
wheel, pedals, gauges, gear knob and door trims have been redesigned to
create a sporty driving environment. To further underline the
performance personality of the car, special suede-trimmed NISMO sports
seats with red stitching have been added, along with Alcantara trim for
the steering wheel. Together they provide extra support and comfort. As
a premium performance model, Juke NISMO comes with a wealth of standard
equipment that is either not available in competitors or offered as
extra cost options. The acclaimed Nissan Connect touch screen satellite
navigation system complete with rear-view camera and Bluetooth
connectivity is standard, while the NISMO also benefits from the Nissan
Dynamic Control System (NDCS). This central command and display module
allows the driver to alter dynamic drive settings as well as make
changes to functions such as climate control. The display, meanwhile,
shows engine and drive related dials and information. Powering
the Juke NISMO is a tuned version of the 1.6-litre, direct injection
turbocharged petrol engine fitted to the current DiG-T model. Sharing
the same philosophy as the 1.6-litre turbocharged engine fitted to
Nissan's radical DeltaWing Le Mans race car, it develops 200PS at
6,000rpm and 250Nm between 2,400-4,800rpm. The
Juke NISMO will be available with two transmission options: 2WD and
4WD. The latter is equipped with a CVT gearbox as standard. This
advanced unit features a manual mode that allows the driver to select
seven ratios via the gearshift lever. 4WD versions are also equipped
with Nissan's innovative ALL MODE 4x4-i system. This torque vectoring
system delivers better grip and cornering capacity by distributing power
evenly between front and rear axles and from side to side. In
terms of performance, the 2WD version is capable of 0-100kph in 7.8
seconds with a maximum speed of 215kph, while the 4WD model sprints from
0-100kph in 8.2 seconds and has a maximum speed of 200kph. Despite
offering improved pace over the standard 1.6-litre DiG-T model,
combined fuel economy and CO2 emissions are expected to be unaffected.*.
As
befits a car wearing the famous NISMO badge, the Juke NISMO is
underpinned by a chassis tuned to deliver improved cornering
performance, grip and direct steering feel. Spring rates have been
increased by 10 per cent, while the dampers and steering system have
been modified to create an agile, sporty feel. Andy
Palmer, Executive Vice President Global Product Planning, says: "The
introduction of Juke NISMO further cements our dedication to provide
innovation and excitement for everyone. The Juke, with its radical
design and pioneering attitude, is the natural choice to be one of the
first Nissan models to receive the mythical performance and distinctive
design treatment from our NISMO specialists." The
Juke NISMO will be built at Nissan Motor Manufacturing UK in
Sunderland, alongside other members of the Juke family and sales in
Europe are due to start early in 2013. Final pricing and specifications
will be announced closer to the launch. *All figures subject to final homologation

More cosmetic (interior / exterior) benefits than out and out grunt. Disappointing BHP increase IMHO; another 10-20 would have set this apart from the base DIG-T.

This said; I'd be tempted if I had the cash to purchase.
