520-hp Nissan Juke-R takes shape [w/video]

It's hard not to love Nissan right now. The company has shown more testicular fortitude over the past 12 months than nearly every other mainstream automaker combined, especially with additions like the Nissan Juke. You may not love the vehicle's bizarre styling, and you may have trouble slotting it into a comfortable market segment, but it shows a determination to shirk a formulaic approach to product development. Now Nissan is diving even deeper into the crazy pool with a 520-horsepower version of the Juke. Meet the Juke-R. Nissan Engineers have taken to wedging the twin-turbo... Read More

For the first time since the division was ...

    Report: Nissan Juke to get higher-performance Nismo RC model
    1358894700

    It's hard to find more giggles for your crossover dollar than the Juke – regardless of how you feel about the way it looks, the singularly styled nichemobile from Nissan is very entertaining to drive. Yet we've always felt that the platform had more in it, and evidently its Japanese parent agrees, having recently bracketed the googly-eyed ...

    To celebrate the launch of The Dark Night Rises on DVD and Blu-Ray in the UK, Nissan has created this one-off special edition of the Juke Nismo.

    Nissan is reportedly working toward turning its Nismo arm into a legitimate sub-brand. According to TheDetroitBureau.com, the Japanese automaker plans to pattern its performance wing after Mercedes-Benz's AMG, which means that moving forward, every vehicle with a Nismo badge will also pack a sizable jump in performance.

    It seems that Nissan Europe has all the fun, and just maybe, all the crazy. When they built the Juke-R, that was a head-turner but it was still Earthly, at least a little bit. The Juke Box is just plain nuts. Working with dance music icons Ministry of Sound and Martin Audio, the trio created a Juke with a specially fabricated sound system to provide the ...

    Nissan has kind of made polarizing design language its thing. From the Cube to the Leaf to the Quest, the company's stylists seem entirely disinterested in bowing to convention unless they're crafting a model for the milquetoast middle of the market. The Juke is no exception to this rule, a dynamite little firecracker of a crossover but one that from ...
