While we don’t see snow in South Africa to the extent that requires a car with tank-like tracks, this Nissan Juke is too good not to write about. It appears to be a mix between a car, a snowmobile and the Mars rover but with epic styling. Based on looks alone, who wouldn’t want to give it a try?
It has been said before. The Nissan Juke has a superpower. It has the unique ability to polarize a room. When it comes to this weird and wonderful car, it’s either love- or loathing at first sight. Nissan, being the collection of rocket-surgeons that they are, obviously know not to fix something that isn’t broken. Which is why the Juke has remained not only on our market but has also remained relatively unchanged in form since its first launch in October of 2011. This is the best indicator that South Africa comes down on the side of lov’it! not loathe it.
Melbourne, Australia was the place to be recently if you are a Nissan Juke fan, as two emerging street artists went head-to-head in an attempt to create the most eye-catching Juke work of art.
Few cars are as divisive as the Nissan Juke. In fact it is the Marmite of cars – you either love it or hate it. But however you feel about the Nissan Juke’s looks, you can’t deny that it looks good on paper and even better when made from paper. Wait… What?
While paper and cars might not have a lot in common at first thought, most great ideas start on with a piece of paper. But what happens if the process was reversed and a great idea turned back into paper? That is what famous origami artist Owen Gildersleeve did with the Nissan Juke.
Believe it or not, they are all used to test and sell Nissan’s range of crossover vehicles, from the Nissan Qashqai to the Nissan Juke. It kind of makes sense seeing as the crossover range is placed is a unique segment of the market and looks so different that they would need to have tests that are just as unique and different.
The Nissan Juke R packs an outstanding 358kW, but what would happen if we added more? Nissan plans to do just that by putting in the drivetrain of a GT-R Nismo into the new Juke R Nismo and increase the power to well over 440kW.
The original Nissan Juke R started its life as an idea. A great idea, but an idea nevertheless. As the Nissan Juke demonstrated its unbelievable popularity, the mad engineers at RML were given the go ahead to the drivetrain of a GT-R into the Juke – and immediately a legend was born.
You know it. And whether you love it or loathe it, the Juke is unmistakable, and this year it is go a step further thanks to updated styling, comfort and performance! With its place firmly cemented as the king of good looking crossovers, the Juke has no intention of slowing down when it comes to innovation both inside and outside.
By now you’ve probably seen this stunning vehicle driving around town – it is no secret that the Juke is one of the most popular vehicles in the Nissan range – and the upgrades are simply breathtaking. Take the bold new bumper, mesh trim and LED taillights for example. The rear of the Juke has also been redesigned to allow an even bigger boot for the front-wheel drive options. In fact the boot space has increased by roughly 40%. And then there are the stunning 18ich alloys. You can’t get much better looking than that!
What is easily the most controversial and divisive model in Nissan’s recent history, the Nissan Juke has been ridiculed and praised for its strange design and outlandish features. Now Nissan is taking the design and colouring of the Nissan Juke a step further by allowing you to customise your paint and decals to create a Juke that is uniquely yours.
They prefer to be called UAVs or unassisted aerial vehicles, but you may know of them as drones.
UAVs have been all the rage for the last year, ever since a major online retailer promised same-day
delivery by 2018. But Nissan was way ahead of the curve, with its established gaming drone and the
imminent birth of the Juke twins.
A UAV is an aircraft that can fly autonomously but is remotely controlled at lift-off and landing.
Although you can intervene during the flight, its very purpose is cruise control: following a preset
flight course without a pilot. In the online gaming world, UAVs are common accessories that can be
purchased from a retailer.
The Nissan stand at the Paris Motor Show is offering visitors a chance to experience “Chase the Thrill,” a new Virtual Reality (VR) encounter, which allows users to transform themselves into a rollerblading android capable of navigating a cyberpunk-esque simulated cityscape.
This experience, in which the mobile robot chases a Nissan Juke, is the result of collaboration between D2NA/DigitasLBi France, Nissan’s digital marketing specialists, and Unit9, a London-based production company. “Chase the Thrill” was inspired by the recent Nissan Juke TV ad, “Tested to Thrill”. Digitas LBi creative director explains that they spotted an opportunity to simulate the excitement of driving in an “innovative way” that gets the pulse racing. He praises Unit9 for their skills in interactivity and storytelling, since the experience not only highlights the Nissan Juke’s unique features, but also offers an adrenalin rush.
