Nissan Juke 2024: updated small SUV due in Australia by end of year


A new N-Sport variant, along with a revised interior, are among the changes for 2024 

Japanese global automaker Nissan has revealed its midlife cycle update for its Juke small SUV, which will see revised tech, the return of a yellow paint option, and the addition of a new N-Sport grade. 

The Juke competes in the popular small SUV segment with rivals such as the Volkswagen T-Roc, Toyota Corolla Cross, the Hyundai Kona and the Kia Seltos

Nissan’s Australian arm has confirmed that the updated Juke will arrive in Australia by the end of 2024.

Yellow is back! New tech and fresh interior tweaks

Some of the biggest changes for the Juke this year involve an interior refresh, new colour choices and better technologies for the small SUV. 

Nissan has confirmed that it has worked to significantly improve the interior by adding a larger 12.3-inch infotainment screen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, both of which are available on higher grades.

The Japanese automaker has also enhanced and upgraded the Juke’s infotainment system with greater functionality thanks to new ‘widgets’ for functions used most frequently, much like the iPhone user interface.  

Improved voice recognition and “natural language understanding” now features, along with versions of both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. 

Like some other vehicles on the market, the Juke can now also play video content from USB-connected devices when the car is stationary. USB-A and USB-C ports have now been made available for second-row occupants.

N-Sport variant gains yellow highlights inside

Nissan has reintroduced a yellow exterior colour choice after receiving feedback from customers. Along with the external yellow paintwork, Nissan has also added yellow flair to the interior for a new N-Sport variant. 

A boomerang-shaped yellow highlight now runs across the top of the main dashboard, while yellow recycled Alcantara inserts can be seen on the seats. 

On the exterior, the new N-Sport grade also adds a black finish to the roof, side mirrors, wheel arch inserts, A- and B-pillars and grille.

Nissan has also confirmed that all variants of the Juke now include an electric handbrake for the first time.

Standard safety equipment has also improved, with the Juke now having standard fitment of lane departure warning. A clearer and higher megapixel reversing camera has also been added. 

Unlike markets such as Europe and the UK, the Juke is very likely to retain its local grade naming structure. This means badges including ST, ST-L and Ti are likely to be used, rather than global names like N-Connecta, N-Design, Tekna and N-Sport.

For 2024, the Nissan Juke has not seen changes to its powertrains. As before, two engines feature, one hybrid and one purely combustion. 

The hybrid engine consists of a 69kW/148Nm 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor that produces 36kW/205Nm. A very small 1.2kWh battery pack also features. 

The second powertrain is a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 86kW/180Nm (200Nm with over-torque function) and is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission. 

The Nissan Juke continues to be produced in the United Kingdom at the Sunderland plant. The brand states that more than 1.3 million units of the Juke have been built since its introduction in 2010.
