2016 Nissan JUKE overview

The Nissan JUKE is unique among Nissan’s crossover lineup—Nissan bills the compact car as a “Sport Cross,” combining four-door functionality with a two-door sports car look and a rear hatchback design.

The Nissan JUKE comes in five trim levels—three regular trims (S, SV, and SL) and two NISMO trims (NISMO and NISMO RS). Nissan offers Personal Package options, as well as a Cold Weather Package and Tech Package, all for the SV trim.

What’s New for the 2016 Nissan JUKE?

For 2016, Nissan has added two new Personal Packages to the SV trim—the Black and Stinger editions, which include specially-painted outside mirrors and door handles, a yellow-painted center console, and yellow interior stitching and seat inserts. In addition, the JUKE will receive standard Siri™ Eyes Free.

The Nissan JUKE is one of the most visually distinctive cars on the road, with its rounded nose, custom-shaped headlights, and SUV styling in a compact package.

2016 Nissan JUKE Interior

The JUKE’s interior is designed to be sporty—the center console’s construction was specifically inspired by the sleek fuselages of Italian sport motorcycles, and comes standard painted in gunmetal gray or, of course, red. In addition, the gauges are designed after motorsport tradition, and the front features sport bucket seats, which fit close to your body to hold you in place during sharp turns.
