The refreshed Nissan Juke has been revealed, and beneath the exceedingly minor exterior changes there are some solid equipment upgrades for the small SUV.

    Nissan Australia has confirmed its plans to bring the updated Juke to local showrooms before the end of 2024, with pricing and specifications to be locked in closer to launch.

    Having launched in 2020, the Nissan Juke is now halfway through its current generation’s lifecycle, but the exterior changes are particularly minor for a mid-life update.

    The updated Juke has been revealed in N-Sport guise – yet to be locked in for Australia – which pairs bright yellow paint with a black roof, mirror caps, grille, wheels, wheel arch inserts, plus A- and B-pillars.

    While the photos supplied by Nissan only show the new Juke N-Sport, it appears all grades will be fitted with a revised grille which ditches the chrome-heavy current unit. A new trim strip spans across the top, running through the brand’s badge.

    Aside from the new grille, the Juke’s exterior appears to be unchanged for 2024.

    However, inside the cabin there are bigger upgrades.

    A 12.3-inch infotainment screen replaces the 8.0-inch unit which is standard across all grades of the current model, while a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster will also replace the conventional analog or 7.0-inch digital displays in the existing Juke.

    Passenger comfort is also being enhanced, with new front seats, a wireless charging pad, two pairs of USB-A and USB-C ports, a larger glovebox and longer-reaching centre console lid among the upcoming adjustments.

    Nissan has also included a higher-resolution reversing camera.

    While an electric parking brake was previously exclusive to the mid-range Nissan Juke ST-L and higher grades in Australia, it will now be standard for all variants.

    The Australian-delivered Nissan Juke’s turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is unchanged, producing 84kW of power and 180Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

    As before, a hybrid will be offered in Europe.

    Despite Nissan Australia’s desire to continue with the Juke, it was the brand’s third-lowest selling model locally in 2023.

    Last year, 1256 Nissan Jukes were sold in Australia – putting it ahead of only niche models such as the Leaf electric hatchback (484 sales) and the Z sports coupe (449 sales).

    It was also the second-least popular light SUV, notching up more sales than its Renault Captur cousin (939 sold) but behind the Ford Puma, which has since been axed locally by the Blue Oval.
