Love the Nissan Juke? OK, you probably don’t, but that’s most likely because you haven’t driven one. Criticized from Tokyo to Tampa Bay, the Juke is a front-runner for ugliest car ever, but it’s also a seriously fun package with a turbocharged 4-cylinder and a sophisticated AWD system.
Targeted at young urbanites, Nissan is looking to add a selection of items to the Juke in the hopes of attracting a few more buyers and up-selling the parts to those already looking at the compact SportCross.
Called the Juke ‘Sporty Package’ it consists of new 17-inch wheels and Michelin tires, fog lights and chrome accenting around the bottom of the doors and rear liftgate. There’s also a body kit, plus a subtle rear spoiler – which really helps to improve the car’s back end.
