New Diesel Engine for the Nissan Juke

 

Nissan announce a new and upgraded 1.5 litre dCi diesel engine to the successful Nissan Juke range. The diesel option for the Nissan Juke model has accounted for approximately a third of Juke sales within the UK.

 

The new diesel option will now offer an increase of 14% in the way of improved fuel economy of the vehicle. The main reasons and factors for the change of fuel economy within the engine would be the all new turbo charger as well as a new variable oil pump. Whilst fuel efficiency is on the rise C02 emissions are reducing as an increase which will make the Nissan Juke more popular than ever.

 

The Nissan Juke was the first of its kind on the market and set the car market alight as it created the all new competitive class in the way of crossover models. The larger crossover model in the form of the Qashqai helped Nissan to have one of its most successful sales terms in the firms history. Both the Nissan Qashqai and the Nissan Juke have remained in the top ten best selling models in the UK for approximately 24 months.

 

However, Nissan state that sales of both the Qashqai and the Juke model have slowed since the turn of the year as more and more manufacturers look to rival the crossover models and somewhat replicate the success of the Juke and Qashqai. Manufacturers such as Vauxhall and Ford have both released rival models in the form of the Mokka and EcoSport models. Vauxhall insist that the Mokka has achieved some very impressive figures within the first quarter whilst Ford are yet to comment on the success of the EcoSport.

 

The New Juke Diesel engined model will look to adopt the three different driving settings which have been seen on other Nissan models. The three different models are the Normal, Eco and the Sport. Nissan have stated that both the Juke and the Qashqai models have a very strong future and are vital components in the route to further success within emerging car markets.
