2014 Nissan Juke NISMO RS with 215bhp revealed

Nissan Juke lineup just got a little more interesting in case you like the compact crossover.

The new Juke Nismo RS with 215bhp joins the already available “standard” Juke Nismo, which packs 197bhp.

The more powerful RS version also gets a new front fascia and grille, making it 37 percent more aero-efficient compared to the standard Juke Nismo.

There are no usual fog lights, instead the RS version comes with a thin strip of LED accent lights. Other updates include bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped with Continental ContiSportContact5 summer tyres measuring 255/45 R18.

Nissan describes it as the “king of the Juke line” with power coming from a 1.6-litre DOHC turbocharged engine that delivers 215bhp and 210 lb-ft of torque when linked to six-speed manual gearbox and a FWD system.

With Xtronic CVT and AWD the engine delivers 211bhp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

There are also larger brakes, while the interior features Recaro front seats, carbon fibre-look finishers, red-and-black colour theme, Alcantara and leather appointments.

The Juke RS will hit the market in early 2014.
