Nissan has begun the road test of the next-generation Juke compact crossover, which should debut in the summer of 2019. The first spy photos of the test prototype was published by Carscoops.

Judging by the pictures, the new Juke as a whole will retain the basic proportions of the body, narrow headlamps of characteristic shape, as well as the “hidden” handles of the rear doors. At the same time earlier, the chief designer of Nissan, Alfonso Albaisa, said that the next Juke will turn out to be different from the previous model, but it will remain true to its charisma.

The next generation Nissan Juke will be built on the modular CMF-B platform of the Renault-Nissan alliance. According to preliminary data, the 1.5-liter diesel engine, as well as a three-liter three-cylinder petrol engine, will be included in the engine range. In addition, it will be available 1.6-liter supercharged unit capacity of 190 horsepower.

It is not excluded that the new Nissan Juke will have a modification with a hybrid power plant, which will include a small gasoline engine, acting exclusively as a generator to replenish the battery.
