Nissan‘s in-house tuning company has touched up the brand’s smallest crossover, and the finished product will be heading to dealerships very soon.

The US-spec Juke NISMO was unveiled today at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show and will feature a engine bumped up to 197-hp (from 188) as well as NISMO-tuned suspension. The NISMO Juke will be available in either front or all-wheel drive and only in three colors: white, black and silver.

The NISMO Juke also gets several exterior modifications which result in 37-percent improvement in downforce. One of the most noticeable changes comes with the lightweight 18-inch wheels. The interior also has a NISMO makeover, featuring sporty, bolstered seating and NISMO badges.

Nissan didn’t mention any price-point for the NISMO Juke yet, but expect more details of the NISMO Juke with the car coming to the US market so soon.

    Wow, so exciting; white, black, silver…yawn.  Let me guess, no manual transmission with the AWD.  Get with it Nissan.

    Hopefully manual wil be available, but I doubt it as the current Juke offers the manual only in FWD version. Automatics and CVTs should never be used with the NISMO badge.
