My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA - Nissan has announced pricing and specification for the 2017 Juke Sport Cross
Nissan today announced U.S. pricing for the 2017 Nissan JUKE sport cross, which is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide. The Nissan JUKE is offered in five grade levels, each available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive – S, SV and SL and two special NISMO editions, the JUKE NISMO and JUKE NISMO RS.
Enhancements for 2017 include new 17-inch machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, which are standard on SV and SL grades, and the contents of the previous Cold Weather Package – heated cloth front seats and heated outside mirrors – are now standard on the SV grade.
Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices1 (MSRP) for the 2017 Nissan JUKE:
JUKE S Xtronic FWD
JUKE SV Xtronic FWD
JUKE SL Xtronic FWD
JUKE NISMO MT FWD
JUKE NISMO RS MT FWD
JUKE S Xtronic AWD
JUKE SV Xtronic AWD
JUKE SL Xtronic AWD
JUKE NISMO Xtronic AWD
JUKE NISMO RS Xtronic AWD
Destination and handling $940.
All 2017 JUKE S, SV, SL and JUKE NISMO models come equipped with a standard 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) Turbo, 16-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 188 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. One transmission is offered for S, SV and SL – Nissan's advanced Xtronic transmission with Sport Mode and D-step Logic Control, which simulates shifts, giving a more natural acceleration feeling without holding a high rpm constant. The JUKE NISMO FWD model is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission.
The JUKE NISMO RS includes unique engine, suspension, steering and brake tuning (versus the JUKE NISMO and standard JUKE grades). The JUKE NISMO RS increases the engine's performance to 215 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 210 lb-ft of torque (from 3,600 to 4,800 rpm) for the 6-speed manual transmission-equipped front-wheel drive model. The JUKE NISMO RS AWD with Xtronic transmission is rated at 211 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 184 lb-ft of torque (from 2,400 to 6,000 rpm).
Both the JUKE NISMO and NISMO RS include special exterior modifications designed to enhance aerodynamics, including NISMO front and rear fascias and side sills with a distinctive red stripe, special grille and light treatments, extended body-colored wheel flares, red outside mirror covers and unique rear spoiler and NISMO or NISMO RS badging.
All grade levels include standard Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start, RearView Monitor and NissanConnectSM with Mobile Apps – including a 5.0-inch color display, USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Siri™ Eyes Free and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant2.
Other available features include Automatic Climate Control, premium cloth seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power moonroof, privacy glass, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection3 and NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, with 5.8-inch color touch-screen display, enhanced Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link™ (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
A unique aspect of the Nissan JUKE is the ability to personalize both the exterior and interior with a range of "color packs" to change the look and feel of the vehicle through the JUKE Color Studio (not available with JUKE NISMO models). For example, accessory 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are available with color inserts to match or contrast the body color. Special color accents can also be applied to the outside rearview mirror caps, side sills, rear roof spoiler and door handles. Interior color packs are offered for the door trim and other elements. Eight colors are available – Red, Yellow, Orange, White, Matte Black, Electric Blue, Black Purple and Carbon-Fiber Look – and a total of 12 accessories. The "affordable personalization" Color Studio offers easy online configuration and the ability to install the custom color parts and accessories at home or through individual dealers' parts and service facilities.
