Nissan has announced a UK price and specs for the Juke Nismo RS, which is a faster and more powerful version of the popular compact crossover.
The Nissan Juke Nismo RS has a number of extras that help make it the sportiest Juke on the planet (apart from this one), including uprated brakes, sharper chassis, revised springs, revised dampers and 18-inch alloy wheels.
There’s also a 218PS version of the 1.6-litre DIG-T engine that generates up to 280Nm of torque. 0 to 62mph is dispatched in 8 seconds, while CO2 emissions are rated at 169g/km. Fuel consumption of 38.2mpg and a top speed of 124mph are promised.
Two or four-wheel drive is available, the former getting a mechanical limited slip differential and more torque and the latter Nissan’s Torque Vectoring System as standard. Both can be specced with either a six-speed manual or paddle-shift Xtronic transmission.
A choice of three paintjobs – Storm White, Pearly Black and Blade Silver – compliment one interior trim. Optional extras include Recaro bucket seats, safety pack comprised Xenon headlamps, Nissan Around View Monitor and Safety Shield, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection.
The Nissan Juke Nismo RS is now sale now priced from £21,995.
