Anyone who was worried that the new Nissan Juke would stray from its unique design need not worry, the 2015 Nissan Juke debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show with only small revisions.

The nose now falls in line with Nissan’s new design language, though the staple headlight design remains untouched save for some new LED daytime running lights. The mirrors have now been fit with turn signals along with cameras that power Nissan’s around-view-camera system. Three new colors are also now available on the Juke: sunlight yellow metallic, ink blue metallic and solid red.

Engine options for the US are still unnannounced, but the current Juke uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four cylinder. In worldwide markets, a new 1.2-liter turbo four has been introduced, but US availability of this engine is still unknown.

The Juke can be had with a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and either a six-speed manual or a CVT.

Nissan claims that the luggage area has been made 40 percent larger on front-wheel drive models, bringing its total to 12.5 cubic feet. On base cars, the interior will sport a grey theme, though customers can choose to have the center console, door trim and other elements colored red, white, black or even a bright yellow. Leather seats can be had on top trim models.

A new glass panel that replaces two thirds of the roof can also be fitted on the 2015 Juke, and when open offers a 27-inch wide opening that stretches 12 inches long.

As of now, all of these Juke revisions have only been announced for worldwide markets, but expect many to carry over once the car makes it to the US.
