Mar 05, 2013– Tokyo, Japan (Techreleased) – Nissan is taking in-car technology to a new level with the launch a new equipment-packed Juke n-tec special edition. The newcomer joined the acclaimed Juke range in March 2013, delivering even more style, higher equipment levels and an enhanced Nissan Connect infotainment system featuring remote connectivity as standard.
Based on the existing Acenta model, the new Juke n-tec delivers on the design front with a striking new look. Riding on bold 18-inch black and silver alloy wheels and featuring glossy black B-pillars and mirror caps, the Juke n-tec has commanding road presence and is sure to turn heads. .The Juke n-tec is also the ultimate showcase for Nissan’s advanced range of in-car technology. Taking centre stage is the new generation Nissan Connect system, which is fitted as standard to all n-tec models.
Controlled via a large 5.8-inch colour touchscreen, Nissan Connect cleverly integrates the Juke’s satellite navigation system with Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones and MP3 players. The new version also incorporates Google® Send-To-Car technology that allows owners to plan and send their route to the car before they leave the house. In addition to being more convenient, it’s also safer – removing the temptation to plot a route when on the move.
The enhanced Nissan Connect system also features a number of innovative features designed to make life behind the wheel even easier. Drivers have complete access to Google®’s comprehensive Points of Interest (POI) database, and can also request weather forecasts, local fuel prices and flight information.
Nissan has also enhanced the navigation system interface, introducing a new ‘exit view’ display with lane guidance, and an economy readout that ‘scores’ the driver according to how economically they are driving. The smoother and efficiently they drive, the higher the score.
Juke n-tec models also feature Nissan Dynamic Control System which allows the driver to select preferred driving dynamic modes, as well as change other functions such as climate control settings via the central touchscreen.
Other standard equipment includes a reversing camera with colour display, rain sensing wipers, auto-lighting and automatic climate control and audio with Bluetooth Compatibility and USB port.
Despite its exclusive specification, the Juke n-tec has been designed to appeal to a broad range of buyers. To this end, it will be available across all engine and drivetrain combinations. Buyers can choose from three engines – one diesel and two petrol – with the option of Nissan’s ALL-MODE 4x4i intelligent four-wheel drive with rear axle torque vectoring and Nissan’s XTRONIC M-CVT transmission when ordered with the advanced 1.6-litre DIG-T engine.
The n-tec joins the range at an exciting time for Juke. Since its launch in 2010, more than 290,000 examples have been sold after leaving Nissan’s Sunderland plant, with the figure for 2012 hitting a record-breaking 140,000 units. The Juke is now Nissan’s second most popular model behind the Qashqai.
