Nissan Juke update offers improved efficiency

Nissan Juke update offers improved efficiency

The Nissan Juke could become a more attractive option for motorists in the market for a new crossover vehicle after the firm announced a range of improvements.

Revised gear ratios on the best-selling model will mean improved fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.

This will also result in reduced running costs for owners, with Nissan boasting savings of more than £230 over a three year period.

"As part of Nissan's constant drive to improve its products, both the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi diesel drivetrains have undergone an optimisation programme to further reduce emissions and boost fuel economy," the company explained.

"The icing on the cake for all Juke buyers is that these revisions come at no additional cost. On-the-road prices have been held, meaning that buyers really can make a saving by choosing the Juke."

Like the Qashquai, the Nissan Juke has proven to be a huge success for the Japanese manufacturer, with 22,000 models sold in the UK since its launch in September last year.
