First Sight: Nissan Juke mk2 calms it down (a bit)

Guy B & Matt W - Juke mk2 b

Nissan’s long-awaited second-generation Juke was previewed across five European cities yesterday (Monday Sept 2) so Avto9245 popped along to the London event – where the car’s design was born – to chat to Nissan Design Europe’s design director Matt Weaver about the evolution of this B-segment small crossover

The first Juke – unveiled back in 2010 – fused a coupe-like cabin with an SUV lower body to original effect and single-handedly launched the B-segment small crossover market in the process. While the Juke’s rally-inspired, multi-headlamp front face didn’t appeal to all – it didn’t sell that well in the US and has been dropped for the Nissan Kicks model there – it certainly won enough hearts elsewhere to call it a global success: nearly one million have been registered in Europe alone.
