2013 Nissan JUKE

What’s New for the 2013 Nissan JUKE

The 2013 Nissan JUKE gains a new NISMO edition with increased performance and several new advanced technologies on the SV and SL trims.

2013 Nissan JUKE Exterior

The 2013 Nissan JUKE is not your typical vehicle. You’ll either hate or love the exterior, but odds are that customers who like off-roaders injected with an enormous dose of flavor will fall in the latter camp. It’s got big-eyed bumper-mounted headlights, a low, squatting roofline, and color-keyed integrated rear door handles that overall give it an almost coupe-like appearance. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the JUKE will be turning heads.

2013 Nissan JUKE Performance

The 2013 Nissan JUKE is powered by a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. It boasts direct fuel injection, turbocharging, and variable camshaft timing as well as a CVT automatic. It’s notable for its quick acceleration, precise steering, and sport-tuned suspension that all combined deliver much better handling than one might normally expect from this kind of vehicle.

2013 Nissan JUKE Efficiency

The technology that makes the 2013 Nissan JUKE’s engine such a powerhouse also contribute to improving its efficiency. It delivers EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/31 mpg highway fuel economy with the standard FWD manual configuration, or 27/32 on the FWD automatic and 25/30 on the AWD automatic.

Standard equipment includes iPod connectivity, Bluetooth, keyless remote entry, and a multifunction steering wheel.
