It is not clear yet if Nissan Egypt will display this awesome-looking car at the upcoming 2010 AutoMech Akhbar Elyoum or not.

Shunning conventional design in favour of more creative thinking, the Juke will shake up the small car sector with a line-up that’s set to appeal to a broad spread of drivers. At the top of the range sits a thrilling 190PS turbocharged model available from only ?£15,695, extending the Juke’s unique appeal as a compact SUV with the genes of a sports car.

Offering both innovative design and great value in a British-built package, the Juke is available with a choice of three engines. The range kicks off with a frugal 117PS 1.6-litre petrol engine, backed up by a fuel-sipping 110PS 1.5-litre dCi diesel.

The ultimate Juke comes equipped with a new 190PS 1.6-litre direct injection turbo petrol engine in both two and four-wheel drive. The ?£19,995 all-wheel-drive range-topper is mated toNissan’s XTRONIC CVT transmission, with six-speed manual mode and adds lateral torque-vectoring - a first in the small car segment and a technology that has, until now, only been found on top-of-the-range, premium vehicles.

Innovation is central to every part of the Juke’s design. Inside, another world first for the small car segment is Nissan Dynamic Control System. A central command and display module like no other, it allows the driver to alter dynamic drive settings as well as easily control functions such as climate control. What’s more, the system adopts different displays, colours and functions depending on the mode selected by the driver.

Juke will officially go on sale in late September with order books opening next month [June]. The range will consist of three core specification levels already familiar to Nissan drivers: Visia, Acenta and Tekna. The entry-level Visia will be available from ?£12,795 and come equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, ESP, six airbags, sports seats and air conditioning, while also offering the practicality of the Juke’s funky five-door shape.

Acenta spec is available from ?£13,795, growing the standard equipment list to include 17-inch alloys, climate control, Bluetooth with USB connectivity and the Nissan Dynamic Control System.

Two option packs have been developed to allow buyers of Acenta grade versions to tailor their perfect Juke. The ?£300 Sport Pack will be the obvious choice for anyone wanting to capitalise on the Juke’s athletic image. Including 17-inch Sport alloys, rear privacy glass and premium seat fabric, it emphasises the Juke’s bold design. If luxury is more your thing, then the ?£900 Premium Pack brings Nissan Connect – the acclaimed combined satellite navigation and audio system - a reversing camera and six speakers, combined with the Sport Pack’s extras.

However, the ultimate Juke will always wear a Tekna badge. Available from ?£15,795, the range-topping specification includes leather upholstery, Nissan Connect, a reversing camera, Intelligent Key with engine start button and much more.

Nissan’s UK MD, Paul Willcox comments: “For many years buyers in this sector have had a pretty conservative range to choose from. Now we have Juke crossover which offers something innovative and exciting for the same price as a bland five-door hatchback. We firmly believe the Juke is going be another huge success for Nissan and our Sunderland plant.�

Like its big brother Qashqai, two-wheel drive versions of the Juke will be built at Nissan’s award winning Sunderland Plant, giving a further boost to the UK’s manufacturing industry. The range-topping all-wheel drive model will be produced at Nissan’s factory in Oppama, Japan.

All the prices mentioned earlier are the prices in the UK market including the British taxes. In Egypt and the Middle East the Nissan Juke should be available for around 10.000 Euros.

The new Nissan Juke will be in the showrooms and can be ordered on 11th of June 2010.
