Nissan has exclusively announced the Japanese market launch of its modern compact sports crossover ride 2011 Nissan JUKE. Already at the brand's dealerships, the bold-styled JUKE is offering the customers a brand-new vision in the compact category, blending the nimbleness of a small sports car with the safety and robustness of a sport utility vehicle.

The recently premiered JUKE benefits from the world's first mass-produced 1.5-liter engine (HR15DE) with dual injectors, which is linked to a new-generation Xtronic CVT™ transmission and rigid suspension. Thanks to that, the Qazana-inspired ride excels at smooth acceleration, precise handling, remarkable stability qualities and unmatched driving experience.

Furthermore, the JUKE's list of standard on-board features is more than stunning as it includes Eco Drive mode with CVT, low consumption cabin climate control unit and the all-new Intelligent Control Display, which represents a versatile multi-function information system that provides updated driving information, such as mileage, and acts as central control panel for cabin environment and for dynamic drive settings.

The 2011 Nissan JUKE is priced between 1,690,500 yen (18,460.96 USD) and 1,790,250 yen (19,550.75 USD), including consumption tax.
