Juke Nismo Rs Completes Nissan’s Nismo Range In Australia – Oct 11, 2018 – Melbourne, Australia (Techreleased) – Nissan has introduced the JUKE NISMO RS to its SUV range, making it the third NISMO model to be sold in Australia.
JUKE NISMO RS joins the powerful Nissan GT-R NISMO supercar, which was launched at Bathurst in February last year, and the Nissan 370Z NISMO which debuted six months later.
NISMO, which is an abbreviation of Nissan Motorsport, offers cars that give an exciting driving experience with motorsport-inspired aerodynamics, enhanced handling characteristics and unmatched agility.
“The NISMO Brand and its range of cars are admired all over the world, we are delighted to offer small SUV buyers a NISMO option,” said Nissan Australia managing director, Stephen Lester.
“The JUKE NISMO RS has the increased power and torque expected of a NISMO model, and a design that is consistent with its NISMO siblings.
“With a devoted following, and with only 240 units available, we expect the JUKE NISMO RS to attract a dedicated group of buyers.”
A standout variant, the Nissan JUKE NISMO RS features bespoke front and rear bumpers, side skirts and roof spoiler as part of its unique NISMO RS aero package.
It also includes a NISMO front grille, exhaust system, rear diffuser and signature red mirror caps and detail line, plus RS badging.
The interior of the JUKE NISMO RS certainly looks the part with a NISMO RS leather-accented shift knob and leather¹ and Alcantara steering wheel with red stitching and the iconic red centre mark, plus NISMO suede sports seats with red stitching.
It also has an intelligent key with NISMO RS push button engine start, a red NISMO tachometer and NISMO branded front kick plates and carpet mats.
Ensuring the driving dynamics are as one would expect of a NISMO model, a series of body and chassis reinforcements are designed to increase the vehicle’s rigidity, steering precision and response.
It also features Anti-Lock Braking (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Traction Control (TCS), a 5.8 inch touch screen display, satellite navigation, digital radio and Bluetooth.
Built in the United Kingdom, the Nissan JUKE NISMO is available in three colours including Ivory Pearl, Pearl Black and Platinum with a premium suede sports seat and red stitching interior trim.
