Nissan's quirky little hatchback already has one of the most unique profiles on the road. A new-for-2013 accessory package gives the Juke an even more aggressive look.
The Midnight Edition accessory package adds specific 17-inch black wheels, a Sapphire Black rear roof spoiler and matching mirror caps. Horsepower remains unchanged: the 2013 Juke still gets power from a 188-horsepower, turbocharged 1.6-liter four cylinder.
The Midnight Edition Package is available on all Juke S, SV and SL models and costs $1,200; Nissan says this is a savings of $500 if you purchased the options separately.
Regular Jukes get some new equipment for model-year 2013, including the addition of the RearView Monitoring system to the Navigation Package on SV models, a revised Rockford Fosgate audio system is newly standard on SL models and three new colors join the lineup: Atomic Gold, Brilliant Silver and Pearl White.
No word yet on 2013 prices, but the 2012 version starts at $20,770, including a $780 destination charge. The 2013 Nissan Juke goes on sale in September.
