Ever since being released into the wild just in time for the 2011 model year, the Nissan Juke has enjoyed the rare status of a true industry revolutionary. In a relatively short period of time, the Juke has gone from being seen as a curiosity to being seen as a vehicle capable of unprecedented versatility, racking up legions of believers along the way. Now, with the release of the 2015 Nissan Juke near Houston TX, drivers can experience this considerable progression for themselves. No longer is the Juke considered a novelty within the crossover SUV class; rather, its unassailable track record for spirited performance and forward-thinking design make it the compact vehicle most frequently mimicked by competitors.
Powered by Nissan’s energetic 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) turbo four-cylinder, the 2015 Nissan Juke achieves levels of excitement not expected from a vehicle its size. A push on the pedal unleashes a responsive 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque and, given the Juke’s small stature, drivers certainly feel each and every one of them. Meanwhile, upgrading to the popular Juke NISMO package pushes those power numbers into truly gaudy territory, to the tune of 215 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque, numbers that far outpace most of its nearest competitors.
Inside the 2015 Nissan Juke, the level of personalization dwarfs that of past model years. With the new Juke Color Studio, shoppers can craft their purchase to match their own tastes, selecting from a number of new paint colors, wheel configurations, and interior fabric choices. And, given the Juke’s penchant for matching the boisterous attitude of its driver, it’s eye-catching reputation is shared with all of its occupants.
It might be easy to assume that, given its slight silhouette, the 2015 Nissan Juke near Houston TX offers cramped quarters to its occupants. However, nothing could be further from the truth. With 35.9 cubic feet of cargo space coming standard, the Juke is easily capable of towing cumbersome loads, whether they’re constituted of friends, pets, or outdoor gear.
Of course, the Juke’s interior design matches the exterior’s attitude as well. With a motorcycle-inspired console design that perfectly complements the boomerang headlights and taillights borrowed from the 370Z, the Juke is captivating in all the places that it should be.
Shaking the crossover SUV segment to its very core is harder than it looks, you know? It takes more than just a risky design. It takes more than just clever marketing. It takes a dedication to making the stylistic cues make sense from a practical standpoint, and to refining the model’s performance to the point where both its design and driving dynamic is capable of standing on its own.
With the release of the 2015 Nissan Juke, this dream has been realized. The 2015 Nissan Juke is now available at Robbins Nissan, located north of Houston in Humble, Texas. To learn more about the latest version of this envelope-pushing vehicle or to schedule a test drive, visit Robbins Nissan today!
