Nissan's bestselling Juke crossover will move to a long-awaited second generation later this year، and prototypes with less disguise have been photographed.
The Juke Mk2، designed at Nissan's London studio، will be revealed towards the end of 2019 and go on sale in early 2020. It's the replacement for a model that's been on sale with few changes since 2010.
With significantly less disguise than before، the new test mules show that the Renault Captur rival's design will evolve the distinctive shape of today's car but remain recognisable. Details such as Nissan's V-Motion grille، adapted from the Micra، will be brought in، with the back-end featuring a more angular look.
In an exclusive interview last year، Nissan's global design boss، Alfonso Albaisa، claims the second-generation Juke “doesn’t look too much like the last one”، adding: “It doesn’t look like IMx [an electric crossover concept unveiled in 2017] or the new Leaf، either. It’s an urban meteor with a nasty attitude.”
