Next-gen Nissan Juke Revealed With Cleaner Design

Next-gen Nissan Juke revealed with cleaner design

The next-generation Nissan Juke subcompact crossover has finally been revealed for the European market. And right off the bat, it's clear that it's a much cleaner, more broadly appealing car than its predecessor. The frog-like accent headlights have been moved into the main grille design, although the large round headlights below them remain. The ultra-rounded fenders have also disappeared in favor of more gently and gracefully widened fenders. The new Juke is still distinctive and concept-like, though. The accent lights are razor thin and swept way back. The illuminated section of the round headlights is actually a Y-shape that looks suitably tech-y and futuristic, and the Juke's funky profile that falls between conventional sedan and hatchback remains. It also picked up the contrasting roof that's en vogue right now. The interior is far more conventional. The odd center console designed like a motorcycle fuel tank is pretty much gone. The dashboard takes its design from the upcoming Nissan Sentra/Sylphy with three round air vents in the middle, a stitched and upholstered dash pad and an infotainment screen sitting above the vents. Only one engine has been announced for the Juke, a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine. It only makes 115 horsepower and 133 pound-feet of torque on a regular basis. Floor it, and it will provide extra boost that will bring torque up to 148 pound-feet for up to 25 seconds. It's also coupled to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. It makes far less power than the 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque the base Juke had in the U.S., not to mention the even more powerful 210-horsepower Juke Nismo RS. But in Europe, this turbo engine is replacing a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder that made just 110 horsepower and 106 pound-feet of torque. No replacement for the European Juke's 115-horsepower diesel has been announced. Nissan has also made no mention of the Juke returning to the U.S. Certainly with the European powertrain options, there wouldn't be much reason to offer it here when the Kicks is the same size with about the same power, and it would almost certainly be more affordable than the Juke. And of course the Kicks has a design that's easier for most people to handle, as opposed to the polarizing Juke.

Ultrasonic Burr Removing Cleaner Removes Fine Burrs In One Go

Ultrasonic burr removing cleaner removes fine burrs in one goBlue Star R&D manufactures unique machines that use powerful ultrasonic waves to remove the fine burrs left after press-forming, and clean the products at the same time.

Toyota Hybrids: A Cleaner Choice For Urban Air Quality

Toyota Hybrids: A Cleaner Choice For Urban Air QualityToyota hybrids can help reduce the NOx threat to air quality in Britain’s city centres.
Britain’s city centres are bearing the brunt of air pollution and the worst-hit areas might not meet clean targets for at least another 15 years, according to a new Government report that reveals latest progress in meeting European standards on nitrogen dioxide levels. This strengthens the argument for Toyota’s hybrids, cars that emit virtually no NOx (including NO2) and which can run pollution-free in the worst city-centre traffic.
