At the Paris Auto Show, in the "flesh" as it were and production ready. As Nissan begins to roll out its reinvigorated NISMO line of upgraded cars and SUVs the Juke is the first to get the treatment.
There is no huge spike in performance here but an additional nine horsepower (taking the Juke to 197) and 184 ft. lbs of torque (up from 177) is always a good thing. Additional tweeks include a 10% stiffer spring rates and comparable adjustments to shocks and steering.
The body gets a functional aero kit and performance tires while the interior gets sport seats and upgraded fabric amongst a host of changes. The NISMO edition Juke will be available in 2 and 4WD variants and pricing will be announced closer to its actual release as a 2013 model.
