Nissan Canada says the new JUKE, scheduled to hit dealership showrooms in October, will have an MSRP of $19,998 for the base MT 1.6 SV model.
“Nissan JUKE is unlike any other vehicle in the hatchback/crossover market today and we know customers will sit up and take notice,” said Mark McDade, director of marketing for Nissan Canada.
The sport cross will be offered in six models ranging in price from $19,998 to $26,648 for the SL CVT AWD model.
The JUKE is the first North American Nissan with its direct injection gasoline (DIG) turbo engine - rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lb/ft of torque.
Two transmissions are offered – Nissan’s Xtronic CVT and a 6-speed manual transmission in FWD models only.
JUKE’s torque vectoring AWD system splits torque up to 50:50 between the front and rear wheels and can also can split torque from side-to-side across the rear axle.
