Nissan Juke – Murano is a crossover wheeltracks of large and in the Qashqai, cars three years ago introduced the concept of crossover as an alternative to the C-segment hatchback traditional and now with Juke Nissan.
Designed to bring fresh air to-B segments, Nissan SUVs Juke is a typical combination of toughness and sports style. Prepared to inject some dynamism into masculinity and the small car market, Nissan Juke incorporates a number of contradictions which appeared under the line is very individual.
Said Pierre Loing, Vice President; “It takes the best elements of an SUV and a sports car and combine them, Product Planning, Nissan Europe.” It’s roomy yet compact, powerful yet dynamic and practical but fun This is a quality that seems to contradict one another, but come together at Nissan Juke to create something really unique. ”
Nissan Juke created at Nissan Design Europe (NDE) in the heart of London, and perfected at the Nissan Design Center (NDC) in Japan. Engineering principles occurred in Japan with a significant European input and Juke will be built at Nissan’s plant in Sunderland in northeast England.
Said Shiro Nakamura, senior vice president for Design and Chief Creative Officer; “design shows real optimism Combining design elements from two genres to create a small but noticeable Crossover featuring original confidence and style. And the quality is also expected to be found in customer Juke Nissan. ”
From the design standpoint, the bottom of the Nissan SUV Juke is pure, with chunky wheels, wide tires, ground clearance is extended and a strong attitude. But the top is a pure sports car, with a high waist, slim graphics such as the protective glass and falling lines coupé-style roof. Stock coupé further underscored by the back door which they had hidden in the framework of the door handles.
Inside, the sports car theme continues with a driver-focused cabin is dominated by a center console design inspired by a motorcycle fuel tank. Done in the typical high-gloss color, ‘bicycle’ console with a sense of fun. Practicality trunk area opening and versatile storage with hidden opportunities.
Based on the Renault Nissan Alliance’s B platform, the Nissan Juke has a 2530mm wheelbase. On front-wheel drive version, the suspension is by MacPherson struts at the front with a torsion beam in the rear while four-wheel drive models have a multi-link rear suspension system found on models in the Qashqai.
All-Mode 4×4-i is a new development of electronic systems in all-wheel drive Nissan’s respected and now features torque vector technology to improve agility and reduce understeer during cornering.
In Europe, three different engines will be available when sales begin this year (UK sales start in October); one diesel and two 1.6-liter gasoline units, all Euro 5 compatible. At the top of the range is the new turbo-charged gasoline engines (MR16DDT) with direct injection. Machinery is one of the most powerful in its class, developing 140kW (190PS) and 240 Nm. Combination of direct injection with a turbocharger to give the strength and the response expected from the 2.5-liter engine with the economy of a small engine.
The second petrol engine is a new version developed by Nissan-HR. Designated HR16DE, lightweight, low-friction valve unit 16 now has a unique dual injection system allows finer metering of fuel sprays for combustion better and develop 86kW (117PS). The K9K 81kW (110PS) 1.5-liter common rail diesel DCI offers excellent driveability, as many as 240 Nm of torque with a good economy and emissions.
In transmission, two wheel drive 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine available is charged with six-speed manual, while the CVT transmission with six speed manual mode will be available on the range-topping version of the all-wheel drive turbo-charged gasoline engines.
The 1.6-liter naturally aspirated petrol is available with five-speed manual or CVT and XTRONIC updated 1.5-liter diesel engine available with a manual six speed.
Trim and equipment selection will follow the established Visia, Acenta and Tekna line with the accessories developed for owners who want to personalize Nissan Juke still further.
“Juke Nissan B-segment car is not traditional, and very deliberate in the urban environment was born and which he will spend most of his life .. You know, the combination of agility and toughness making it one of most cars on the street.
“Juke join the Murano and the Nissan Qashqai to strengthen its position as a leading brand in the crossover market,” said Simon Thomas, Nissan Europe Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing.
Juke created by Nissan Design Europe, based in London and perfected at Nissan’s Design Center (NDC) in Japan. Qashqai, also made NDE, sold in Europe, Asia and Australia while Nissan Juke will be marketed in Europe, Japan and the United States.
Shiro Nakamura said: “The results of this global collaboration is a car coming from the East and West, with important contributions from NDE and NDC is the key to making such striking design.”
Individual lines done for almost intact from Qazana. Design reflects the importance of segment-B in the European market: Europe is expected to take the bulk of sales, including North America and Japan.
The design team draw inspiration for the design of Nissan’s Juke from a number of sources. The number of identical vehicles with an active and sporting life and a list that includes car and motorcycle rally.
Nissan’s DNA had a more solid threaded difficult to reflect elements of the SUV, is a car that is very sensual, with complex curves and coupé profile is emphasized by the glass rear narrow side door and give the impression of two rather than four doors.
In the Nissan design DNA, the boomerang rear lights, and Juke stands alone as a unique, almost maverick.
Albaisa Alfonso, Vice President, Nissan Design Europe, said: “Juke Nissan has inspired elements from other cars that are within us like the 370Z and even the Cube, but our intention was never made clear relationship between our cars, but natural. Cube is cool with the coolness of cars that can also be found in the Nissan Juke. ”
With ground clearance, large wheels and tires, high waist and wide shoulder line, the bottom ‘half’ of the SUV seems pure. This impression is emphasized by the distinctive features of SUVs such as the threshold contrast of black and wheel arch finishers while on the front and rear, lower bodywork emerged from under the car, similar underbody protection.
In front, forming the air intake assembly but rather use a simple integrated grille, the design team has developed a series of prints into the circular slot suggestive biotic elements.
Nissan showed its identity Juke sport. A heavily raked windscreen, complete with the signature Nissan Crossover films upswept into the rear side windows – and the sloping roof-line provides a profile reminiscent of an aircraft canopy.
The rear roof incorporates an integral spoiler to reduce aerodynamic lift to help high-speed stability. Ridge-tailed ducks neatly complemented by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnel tests.
Lights also reflects the sports car agility. In front is divided into two distinct elements. Framing the top hat, contains a thin slash through the lights and turn indicators, main and dipped beam was mounted lower on the nose of the car was inspired by an additional light installed for the rally cars in the sixties and seventies. At the rear, tail lights alone put spin boomerang-shaped lights found in the 370Z.
In total, nine planned color palette of exterior colors, including two white, solid and pearl, and three unique colors for Nissan’s Juke – Force Red, Blue and Brown Machine Haptic, although the total availability will depend on the region.
Seiji Watanabe, Chairman of the Association of Product Designers: “We want our cars, our crossovers in particular, to have the spirit of agility, must be seen as a light, nimble, reactive Nissan Juke. Displays all the attributes and gives real meaning of optimism.”
Juke Nissan active exterior that matches the company’s sports interior, and the dominant feature, center console, finished in high gloss paint, resembling a motorcycle fuel tank.
Reflecting on the outside of the mixing of the attributes of SUVs and sports cars, the interior provides command driving position but with all the attributes expected of a sports car. Shifting gear sitting on a ‘motorbiketank’ to ensure smooth changes while the tank itself is no mere styling statement, but also provides a point to reinforce the driver’s knee during spirited cornering.
Nissan center stack new Ergonomic Dynamic Control System which is designed to ensure drivers have fast access to information and controls the drive mode.
Chrome fittings and high quality material is used with interior colors, red or gray gun metal for central consoles, depending on the class, black, silver or red accents to the skin or honeycomb ‘fabric sports’. Even the door arm rests, shaped like the fins used by scuba divers, reflecting the active view.
Roomy interior offers a competitive level in the room, head room front and rear knee room will be enough for most residents. Unlike Qazana car show, five-passenger Nissan Juke is full.
Practical luggage area is big enough to take a nine-inch golf bags or luggage maximum size and also includes underfloor storage (4wd versions excluded), which takes its potential capacity for 251 liters (VDA). In addition, the rear seats split 60:40, and also fold in one simple motion to provide a load floor completely flat.
Trunk area has a tonneau cover integral different from the conventional to become attached to the bed of the truck and ride with the doors when the trunk opened.
Albaisa said: “Showing the number of attributes that actually the total number of cars. There are a lot of emotions here, a sense of real fun and genuine quality.”
Juke Nissan Alliance is based on the Renault Nissan B-platform and has a 2530mm wheelbase is 4135mm long, 1765mm wide and 1570mm high. To enable the top of the range uses 17-inch wheels and 215/55 R17 tires, front and rear track 1525mm, the largest yet seen on the Alliance B-platform.
As new models become the platform will evolve through a number of changes, and the foundation Nissan Juke is an exception. For applications on Juke Nissan, has been extended, widened and strengthened and lightened significantly to enhance the safety, repair, and fuel efficiency.
Although the basic mirror suspension system found on cars of other B-segment, with MacPherson struts in front and a torsion beam in the rear, a new front subframe cradle-type has increased the lateral stiffness of the assembly. Along with the revised front suspension geometry, this has helped to promote better handling and driving comfort along with a greater improvement.
The 4wd version of Nissan’s Juke benefit further from the multi-link rear suspension new. When coupled to a new technology developed torque vector Nissan four-wheel drive to limit understeer, handling Juke Nissan is at the top of the class despite the higher ground clearance, while convenience has been preserved.
The combination of higher ground clearance and big tires meant that the speed bumps and poor road surface did not cause any inconvenience as it would to a conventional sports hatchback.
SUV and eye-point is relatively high, Nissan Juke front and rear roll center height as low as possible and closer to the conventional hatchback of a typical SUV to reduce body roll in corners.
Agile handling is also aided by the speed-sensitive power steering power, standard on all models, and by the upper body strength and stiffness increased. Nissan Juke combines newly developed ring structure that connects your upper body to the rear suspension, thereby increasing the stiffness of torque.
Engines and drivetrains
In Europe, there are three engines and a choice of manual or CVT transmission while Nissan sales Juke starts in the second half. At the top of the range of newly developed 1.6-liter gasoline direct injection turbocharged engine that develops 140kW (190PS) and 240Nm.
A low friction and lightweight design, 16 valve engine uses direct injection to improve combustion to optimize power and torque, economy and emissions. Addition of a turbocharger and intercooler helps to improve power, time control variables for both the intake and exhaust cycle (twins VTC) to increase the response of low-end machines. Overlapping degree allows exhaust gas recirculation.
Low friction techniques including the application of diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating for the athlete lift camshafts valves and mirror finish. The result is machines that level of performance normally aspirated 2.5 liter engine but with fuel economy of smaller machines.
Gasoline Direct Injection engine in two wheel drive version of Nissan’s Juke will be combined with six-speed manual transmission. On four-wheel drive version, will digabugkan XTRONIC Nissan CVT transmission, with six-speed manual mode.
The second petrol engine, which also replaces the 1.6-liter and has four valves per cylinder, is a member of the family re HR area. Designated HR16DE, has experienced some significant changes with a larger exhaust manifolds, intake manifolds retuned, VTC twin falls improved intake flow and a new catalyst with the formation of hexagon cells.
New with the revised piston crown and an integral cooling jet oil has been adopted along with techniques such as low friction diamond-like carbon coating on the valve lift athletes.
The most significant changes to the development of dual-injector system that has two injectors for each cylinder, each with a small nozzle that is more subtle, more closely targeted to spray fuel into the cylinder for more efficient atomisation and more complete combustion.
Together these changes bring significant improvements in power, torque and fuel efficiency. Engine produces 86kW (117PS), representing six per cent improvement over previous versions of the machine. Torque increased by three per cent to 157Nm while the economy showed 5.6 percent rate of improvement. Gasoline engine power normally aspirated two wheel drive version only, and will be available with either five-speed manual or CVT transmission option XTRONIC updated, CVT transmission is different from the one used by DIG engines.
DCI Alliance K9K developed 1.5-liter turbocharged common rail diesel. Engine 1461 cc eight-valve fuel economy provides a good, low emissions and running costs with excellent driveability.
With a power rating of 81kW (110PS) at 4000 rpm and torque of 240 Nm at 1750 rpm and impressive on this unit is equipped with the fuel rail back and control units to increase fuel efficiency. injection pressure is 1600 bar. Accelerate the performance improvement glow plug cold starting performance. emission control systems including diesel particulate filters (DPF), with a fifth injector for regeneration and cooled exhaust gas recirculation while the turbocharger layout changed to make the distance between it and the DPF as short as possible.
Diesel on a two-wheel-drive models with six-speed manual transmission. For Europe, all Euro 5 engine is fully compatible.
Manual transmission is more than most of the change of the Qashqai, both XTRONIC CVT system features a number of key technologies that promise significant improvements in weight, packaging, performance and fuel efficiency.
XTRONIC updated CVT unit, used with a conventional 1.6-liter gasoline engine, is 10 percent shorter than before and 13 percent lighter while the internal friction has been reduced by a remarkable 30 per cent. This unit is the world’s first CVT sub planetary gear transmission ratio enables a much higher rate – 7.3:1 – from the previous Nissan CVTs. pulley is smaller, lighter, a flexible key for more efficient absorbers and oil pump all promote greater fuel efficiency.
The CVT XTRONIC with 6-speed manual mode on the Juke Nissan turbocharged gasoline engine has been tuned for more sports performance with the revised manual mode for sharp acceleration while the management system has been reprogrammed to improve fuel efficiency. Both CVTs have a control system of adaptive changes that can be selected through Nissan Dynamic Control System.
Remarkable in its class, Nissan Juke will be available with a choice of four-wheel drive the front wheels in addition to the conventional. A newly developed system of all-wheel-drive technology based on Nissan’s ALL-MODE 4×4-i electronics, but now adds the ability of vector-lateral torque for the armory.
And the separation of torque front to rear – upto a maximum of 50:50, now can be split from side to side on the rear axle as well. By monitoring vehicle speed, wheel speed, gear position, steering angle, lateral G force and now the vehicle yaw rate, the distribution of torque can be increased to the outside rear wheel in corners to cut cornering understeer and improve the ability of the car. In total, upto 50% of the total available torque can be sent to one of the rear wheels.
These include a new rear axle electric clutch on both ends of the inclusion of the last added a new drive this is the first innovation in the small car segment in a technology.
Equipment and line model
The conventional aspects of the Nissan model lineup is the Juke, which follows established Nissan Visia, Acenta and Tekna line. Standard and optional equipment list will be released closer to the sale date, but expected items such as climate control, leather seats, rear view camera and Intelligent Key will all be available to subscribers Nissan Juke along with some unusual features.
Nissan Dynamic Control System with central command and display module that allows the driver to dynamically change the drive settings and make changes to the more obvious functions such as climate control.
Cleverly, the module adopts a different screen, color and function depends on how it is being used. In climate mode, the screen displays the interior temperature settings while the ‘display’ button preferences airflow.
But D-Mode, the buttons change to Normal, Sport and driving the Eco mode, changing the throttle map, available torque, the CVT shift schedule, performance steering and even air conditioning efforts to comply with the conditions. The screen, meanwhile, showed the engine and drive fast and relevant information.
Cars settings, such as light sensitivity automatically, can also be arranged through the system, while the screen changes color to indicate what type of information being displayed. Driving information panels combine to give the average speed, fuel economy, time travel and so forth. Overall, the screen is designed to add a sense of cool, interesting technology to the interior.
As the article I have ever made the Electric Car Nissan Leaf has advantages with electric batteries can also be used as long as 160 km. This capability is more than enough considering the leaf can be used to transport five adults as well.
Although Nissan’s Juke has a long list of standard equipment, Nissan has developed a wide range of accessories that allow owners to personalize their vehicles still further. Among the objects on offer are different designs of alloy wheels and front and rear under body armor to highlight elements of SUV design.
Other exterior features include exhaust finishers, roof spoiler and breaking wind in the door, while the owner can add a frame of the door and lit by floodlights interior. Practical touches include a sophisticated security system and additional storage opportunities in front of the arm and in the baggage area.
Simon Thomas said: “The success of exceptional compact crossover Qashqai and Nissan Juke shows a conventional car. Even more daring, even more daring than the Qashqai and Nissan is set to confirm the position as a pioneer of crossover in Europe and, indeed, globally.”
Nissan has been conceived with the aim of Juke specifically to meet customer expectations are not met by adding a lot of dynamics and masculinity to the market, small cars drunk safely. Who will buy Nissan imagine Juke in Europe?
Nissan Juke will attract a younger audience than the average customer Nissan (bottom half will be under 40), these estimates indicate that Nissan Juke will have broad appeal, Nissan’s research supports that there is widespread disappointment at the lack of passion in the automobile sector small in Europe.
Nissan’s sales will come from the Juke-B segment and also attracts customers C-segment, with people trading down to enjoy something more radical and inspirational.
From the article before it was also stated that this is Nissan’s Juke 10 Best New Cars in 2010 as a manufacturer of automobiles, by determining the success of the latest products to the public. Ten latest car models MSNBC version that includes various types of vehicles, ranging from mini cars to large family cars, each representing their own uniqueness.
