Upon its release, the Juke was regarded as one of the weirdest and unique SUV models on the market, and the 2018 Nissan Juke Nismo looks to be no different. From the start, the Juke managed to captivate the audience with its strange and unique design. It was not able to compete with other top-of-the-line compact SUVs, due to its somewhat weak performance. The Nismo variant will address this issue with a new, more powerful powertrain and a number of exterior and interior features.
2018 Nissan Juke Nismo Fresh and Unique Design
With its unusual look, the 2018 Nissan Juke Nismo RS will certainly leave some people confused. From its initial release, the Juke loved both was and hated, due to its exterior design. Thankfully, those who hated it were in a minority. Thanks to its unusual design and creative ideas, the Juke has become one of the most popular subcompact SUVs on the market. The 2018 edition will not introduce any radical changes, but will only enhance and update the existing features. Since the Nismo is a performance oriented variant, the customers can expect a good number of athletic features and performance updates to its existing design. In the front, the vehicle is dominated by an aggressive-looking V- style grille and revamped headlights. In the rear, it will be distinguished by nearly flat fenders and “fish-hook” taillights. On the sides, 18 or 19-inch wheels will take the center stage.
2018 Nissan Juke Nismo RS Interior Features
The interior of the 2018 Nissan Juke Nismo has also received some notable updates. In order to go with a more performance-oriented philosophy, the Nismo’s interior will look more like a racing car’s than an SUV’s. Despite this, it will still offer quite enough space and comfort as well as cargo. One of the most notable additions are the Recaro racing seats, which come in red and black leather accents, along with suede inserts.
When it comes to the tech options, the 2018 Juke Nismo will offer a wide variety of gadgets and devices. The infotainment will come in the form of a 5.8-inch display, Nissan Connect integration, the Rockford Fosgate audio system, a Bluetooth suite, and also a CD player.
