Nissan News: Nissan Introduces A Madder Juke-R

Recommended Posts

If you thought the Nissan Juke-R NISMO was mad with 545 horsepower via the twin-turbo V6 from GT-R, then you ain't seen nothing yet. Today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K., Nissan has introduced a more powerful Juke-R.

 

Called Juke-R 2.0, the vehicle boasts a more powerful twin-turbo V6 with 600 horsepower from the Nissan GT-R NISMO. There are other changes such as revised bodywork from the current Juke, larger air intakes, and bumpers made out of carbon fiber.

 

Nissan is keeping quiet on performance specs for the Juke-R 2.0, but we wouldn't be surprised if the new version is slightly faster than the first Juke-R. We'll find out how fast 2.0 is when it does the Goodwill Hill Climb this weekend.

I'm not too keen on the looks of the standard Juke, but this one looks really nice. Loving the matte paint and the sporty looks of it.

The Juke is a ugly car.  Not really that spacious either, the backs of them are pretty small.

 

Why would anyone want a 600 hp Juke?  This is a classic case of how more power doesn't always make it better.

The same reason why we get a BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE - Because we can.

Part of the fun of the Juke is how much it confuses people. It's different and fun. The back seat isn't terribly usable, so it's not really for families. It's not a hypermile car. It's quirky and fun. The regular Juke is reasonable on gas. It's a great single person runabout, for the single person who wants something different.

Not that those many any sense either, but since coupes are going away (Monte Carlo, Thunderbird, Solara, Riviera all gone) and  new cars are being made sedan only, we start seeing all these "4-door" coupe styling and since crossovers are the rage, I guess I see why some would buy a coupe-like crossover.  Even though I personally think that body style is pointless.

 

600 hp in a Juke is like a 500 hp Malibu or Camry, there is no point.  The type of people that would buy a Malibu or Camry would never drive a 500 hp car.  If you want 600 hp, go buy a GT-R that is actually made to go fast.
