Nissan says the Nismo version uses a tuned-up version of the Juke’s turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder. In regular Jukes, it makes 188 hp; there was no word on the Nismo’s power rating. Nismo versions get stiffened suspension tuning and steering modifications for sportier handling. It will also get a torque vectoring system for better cornering ability, according to Nissan.
No word yet on pricing, but details will be announced closer to the vehicle’s launch date. It goes on sale first in Europe in January. Japanese and U.S. markets will follow.
