Bright appearance and style

If you are looking for car, possessing all the qualities of a sedan and SUV with a good cross, note the nissan juke based on a platform concept Nissan Qazana. The premiere of the model representing the original "a mixture of" compact crossover and a sports coupe, was held at the international motor show in Geneva in 2010, while sales in our country began with the April 2011.

His name, in the Russian version of sounding like "Zhuk", actually has nothing to do with insects, and was probably jukebox Jukebox, popular in America. This marketing move was undertaken to interest young readers, for whom it was intended. As for the Russian motorists, for them Juke remained the  by that only raise interest and sympathy to the model in our country.

The main distinguishing feature, which has the Nissan Juke are its relatively small size: at length mm and width 1765mm, its height is mm. Despite the compact size, the length of the wheelbase car quite decent:2530 mm, due to what he has quite roomy interior.

In General appearance of  the Juke" is not very different from his «older brother», «Qazana». Here we can see the wheel arches bloated form, the original front lighting in the form of three buds, a special design of the narrow Windows, pripodnimayut up and unusual tail lights, as if "vomiting" on the rear racks auto. So it looks a bit strange and unusual, but will never get lost in the traffic thanks to its bright and expressive appearance.

The only designer "playing" is not very convenient design of its front bumper, namely: small openings available on it. Due to the cooler becomes vulnerable point of the vehicle: the unsuccessful hit otskochila stone or a branch, caught under the wheels can cause it to break.

Here, the buyers are offered three choices: fabric, suede or leather. Naturally, that are intended for the basic configuration of the first two options, and the latter can be found on the most expensive and “packaged» modifications.

However, despite all the advantages and obvious advantages of interior design, the most interesting in the cabin Juke – are technical «filling», in particular, Nissan's Dinamic Control, which is a Central module, managing all systems of the car and displays all relevant information.
