Nissan gives the Juke some pep

The Juke Nismo RS has arrived Down Under starting at $37,790, with a tuned 1.6-litre turbo four under the bonnet to become the third member of the local Nismo line-up. The Juke Nismo is actually so old that Nissan has already stopped production, with just 240 allocated to Australia.

The sporty crossover is available with either a six-speed manual or a CVT, but wed recommend sticking with the former. Not only does the three-pedal variant have more power (160kW/280Nm vs 157kW/250Nm) compared to the automatic, but its also 140kg lighter.
