2017 Nissan Juke Melrose Park IL
It’s hard to measure that feeling of joy when you find a model that appeals to your sense of taste. You’re the one that has to be seen in the thing, and if you’re buying a new car, shouldn’t you be excited about it? The 2017 Nissan Juke, available outside of Melrose Park IL here at Glendale Nissan, isn’t for everyone. That’s because it’s design isn’t quite like everyone else’s. We know there are plenty of shoppers that prefer a model that will blend in, but the Juke is one that is meant to stand out.
A unique appearance is very likely what will first draw you to the 2017 Nissan Juke, but you wouldn’t take one home with you if it didn’t also impress once you get behind the wheel. Despite its broad appearance, the Juke is surprisingly nimble, especially if you opt for the top trim, the Nismo RS. You don’t need the 215-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or the Nismo-tuned exhaust and sports brakes, but they sure don’t hurt when it comes to having fun behind the wheel.
When you think of a crossover, you very likely picture a model that is essentially a shrunken down SUV. The Juke offers a different approach, with a front end that is robust and a bit bubbly. This appearance is aided by the focus on the bumper, rather than the grille, and the round daytime running lights.
The standard engine for the 2017 Nissan Juke is the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It delivers up 188 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque and is paired with the CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, but the torque-vectoring AWD is an option starting at the base S trim level.
Standard features in the 2017 Nissan Juke include a 5-inch color audio system, Bluetooth with audio streaming, Siri Eyes Free, a rearview monitor, A/C, cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls, power windows and locks and Nissan Intelligent Key with the convenient push-button ignition.
Can you see yourself in a 2017 Nissan Juke?
You already like the appeal of the 2017 Nissan Juke design, or you wouldn’t be considering it as an option. It’s compact and convenient, plus it offers performance options for those who like a bit more punch. There are a total of five trim levels for this model year: S, SV, SL Nismo and Nismo RS. The base trim offers all the necessities, with the SV and SL adding on convenience features for more comfort. The Nismo is tuned for tighter handling and a sportier appearance, while the Nismo RS received a boost in power and performance features.
Along with picking from a variety of trim levels, Nissan has made its popular Juke highly customizable so it can meet your unique tastes. Nine color options might seem fairly common, even with vibrant hues like Solar Yellow and Red Alert thrown in the mix, but the interior also has seven options. Most other brands only give you two, and then limit them to match the exterior. Nissan has left the choice up to you.
Do those not sound like enough options? For a completely customized experience, you can use the Juke Color Studio to modify trim pieces, the color of the wheels, and a lot more. Stop by Glendale Nissan to take a test drive and find out how you can get behind the wheel of a model built just for you.
