► Juke v2.0 coming to IAA 2019
► Baby crossover to be refreshed
► Nissan drops its first teasers
Nissan has set the date for the reveal of the new Juke crossover: 3 September 2019. That means the new baby crossover will make its international debut a week before the 2019 Frankfurt motor show.
The brand dropped the first hint by publishing a QR code on its European website, which leads to a new website with a single image of a headlight and the aforementioned date. In the URL, the suffix says ‘new Juke is coming.’
Our first glimpse of the next Juke comes in the shape of the front quarter of the bumper, showing off fresh (and presumably LED) headlights. The blobby headlights of the first generation have been ditched for a DRL design that isn’t dissimilar to the sign warning of radiation. Also visible is Nissan’s V-motion grille, linking the new Juke with the current Qashqai.
The Juke has needed revitalising for some time; in more recent years the Juke has felt as old as the hills compared to countless other, fresher competitors. It makes sense, given the first generation Juke first went on sale in 2011.
We’ll surely find out more as the months draw on, and see it in full by that September date.
