May 12, 2010 - PRLog -- Nissan's all-new-for-2011 Juke sport cross is set to make its Arizona debut at in the fall of 2010, and the small crossover's polarizing moon-buggy styling is sure to set Scottsdale tongues wagging, just as it did during its global premiere at the Geneva Motor Show and a month ago at the New York Show.  Having seen this vehicle in person already, we can tell you that its "Baby Predator" front end is striking and fun, and it all comes together better than expected.  The interior is surprisingly roomy and well-resolved, and this small crossover comes loaded with technology.

A bit smaller in person than one might think, the curvy new Nissan ute is perfect for Arizona’s young urbanites.  It’s even easier to handle than vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 – it's even shorter than the new Hyundai Tucson and Pinnacle Nissan's own Rogue, not to mention the likes of Mitsubishi's Outlander Sport (itself another NY debut).  The closest competitor we can think of is Suzuki's SX4 crossover.  In the end, we fully expect the new Juke to be cross-shopped with more conventional hatchbacks (Mazda3), as well as 'box cars' like the Kia Soul and Nissan’s Cube.

Featuring the first application of Nissan's 1.6-liter direct injected four-cylinder turbo in North America, the Juke will be available with torque vectoring all-wheel drive, so it might just be the driver's car of the bunch, too.  Walton said that, “Featuring  180+ horsepower and 170+ lb-ft of torque,  our Juke will be available in both six-speed manual form and CVT with a sport setting.”  The three-pedal (6MT) setup will only be available in front-drive SV and SL trim, however.  The cutting-edge Nissan  torque-vectoring system  defaults to a 50:50 front-to-rear split, but it can push power from front to back and side-to-side along the rear axle when situations warrant.

No official pricing has been revealed yet, but Walton promises that the Juke will start at "just under $20,000." Want to learn more?  Check out Pinnacle Nissan’s Juke webpage. .
