Nissan announce prices for the Juke Nismo

Prices for the Nissan Juke Nismo will start from £19,995 when it goes on sale in January 2013. The high performance SUV is the first European car designed by Nismo, Nissan's Japanese performance division.

The Juke Nismo will be powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine, producing 197bhp. Both four-wheel and front-wheel drive versions will be available, with slight differences in performance between the two. The four-wheel cars get an automatic CVT gearbox and can manage 0-62mph in 8.2 seconds while the manual front-wheel versions can do it quicker, in 7.8 seconds. Nismo has also given the new Juke stiffer suspension to complement the increase in power, improving traction and responsiveness during cornering.

A number of exterior changes have also been made for the Juke Nismo including a sporty new bodykit. Along with the Nismo badge, the SUV gets a modified grille, lower rear and front bumpers, wider sideskirts and wings, 18-inch alloys and a tailgate spoiler. A red stripe along the rear and front bumpers also match the red wing mirrors.

Nismo have continued the red theme in the interior, with the suede trimmed sports seat getting red stitching along with deep side bolsters. The door trims are also suede while the steering wheel is mix of leather and Alcantara.

Nissan will be taking orders for the Juke Nismo from January 2013 with deliveries scheduled to begin in March.
