Juke Nismo sets the tone for a range of Nismo models in EuropeDramatic design both inside and out features motorsport inspired elementsPowered by 200PS 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged engine2WD or 4WD drivetrain optionsEfficiency of standard Juke DIG-T remains unaffectedSet up for more engaging, exhilarating and exciting dynamics with superior handling and agility Nissan
celebrates its rich sporting heritage at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show
with the official European launch of Nismo. Spearheading what will
become a range of road cars developed and engineered with Nismo DNA is
the Juke Nismo - a highly advanced yet accessible car that stays true to
the Nissan's proud motorsport history. Created
with Nismo's maverick engineering philosophy at its heart, the famous
Japanese marque's unique motorsport DNA adds an exciting new dimension
to the pioneering compact crossover's list of attributes. DesignAs
drivers would expect from a car bearing the Nismo badge, the Juke Nismo
is distinguished by design features driven by function rather than
fashion. Every new element has been introduced to enhance the car's
aerodynamic performance, with even the smallest detail honed to make the
car more efficient. The
sculpted bumpers and side skirts of the standard car have been reworked
to enhance aerodynamic performance, while striking new 18-inch alloy
wheels with a bold diamond cut design give drivers increased grip during
cornering. In
true motorsport fashion, the Juke Nismo's interior is focused on the
needs of the driver. The seats, instrumentation, steering wheel, gear
knob, pedals and door trims have all been redesigned to boost driver
enjoyment by creating a more performance-oriented environment.The
suede-trimmed front seats have been redesigned to offer additional
lateral support, while the Alcantara and leather-trimmed steering wheel
complete with red top-centre marking further reinforces the Nismo's
motorsport heritage. Powertrain and engineering: revised for improved dynamicsThe
Juke Nismo is powered by a reworked version of Nissan's advanced
four-cylinder 1.6-litre Direct Injection Gasoline Turbocharged (DIG-T)
petrol engine. Cementing the link to Nismo's track activity, the engine
features the same technologies as the unit installed in the
revolutionary and experimental DeltaWing race car. In
Juke Nismo guise, the engine's power and torque have both been
increased in comparison to the standard DIG-T variant, but boosts in
output don't come at the expense of emissions and efficiency. Power
rises from 140kw (190PS) to 147kw (200PS), while torque is boosted from
240Nm to 250Nm, yet economy and emissions remain unchanged.In
common with standard versions of the Juke 4WD, the all-wheel-drive
Nismo variant benefits from Nissan's innovative Torque Vectoring System
(TVS). As well as splitting torque front to rear - up to a maximum of
50:50 - it can also be shifted from side-to-side across the rear axle. Improved
performance is only one element of Juke Nismo's dynamic appeal. The
suspension settings have been completely revised, leading to greater
traction and improved body response and roll control, while the car's
steering has been reworked for sportier and more direct handling. Innovative new technologyThe
Juke Nismo features an enhanced version of the Nissan Connect
infotainment system. Benefitting from a larger 5.8-inch touch-screen
display, the latest system includes a host of new features, including
Google send-to-car technology. The
Juke Nismo offers further control through Nissan Dynamic Control System
(NDCS). This advanced central command system allows the driver to alter
the car's dynamic settings as well as make changes to everyday
functions including climate control. Nismo driving application - a vision of a connected Nismo futureKnown
by millions through the virtual world of driving simulation games,
Nismo has a strong link with the digital world. To reinforce, this
Nissan and Nismo engineers are working on taking the Juke's digital
integration to the next level. A
new app, currently under development, could give Juke Nismo customers
an innovative 'connected' experience. It bridges the gap between the
highly advanced race technology seen in the ultra-exclusive Nissan GT-R
and the aspirations of affordable performance car owners. Running
the app, the driver's iPad will be linked to the car's on-board
computer systems via Bluetooth. The driver can view multiple gauges
showing engine temperatures, pressures, G-forces or lap times. The
concept also previews the vision of a connected online community of
Nismo drivers. Once connected to the internet, customers would be able
to upload their car's stats, sharing them on social media sites. For the full Nismo story please click here.

Defiantly got on board the juke ship at the right time
Looks like I need an iPad bracket for the nismo

Getting the runaround from Nissan about stripes as I'm desperate to promote the
Nismo image though
They can't seem to actually read my emails or pass them on to the correct dept
Maybe I need to speak to the MD of nismo UK to get the job done

Might have to buy an iPad mini, the iPad will be far too big. I've spent time speaking to NCS and found them really helpful, even to the tune of getting dealer vouchers ;)
