"At last year’s Tokyo auto show, Nissan announced plans to expand the worldwide scope of its NISMO performance parts division and showed off the NISMO Juke concept (pictured above). While the concept previewed a potential turnkey performance Juke variant along the lines of the NISMO 370Z sold here in the U.S., the NISMO Juke is hypothetical no more—at least in Europe.

"At Nissan’s press conference at the Geneva auto show, Paul Willcox, senior vice president in Europe, confirmed that the spicier Juke would go on sale by the end of the year. No other details were provided, so the NISMO Juke’s production form remains a mystery for now. The concept benefited from a power bump, a lowered and stiffened suspension, a body kit, 19-inch wheels, and several NISMO-specific interior touches. It’s worth mentioning that this Juke is a very different animal from the Juke-R that we recently drove. That car marries the Nissan GT-R’s running gear with the radically altered body of a Juke in a concoction best described as “bananas.”

Since we’re pretty sure you’re thinking it by now, let us inform you that Nissan has yet to confirm any plans to bring the NISMO Juke to Amercica. We’re told that the company’s current focus is on launching the NISMO brand and the Juke in Europe, and that the announcement in Tokyo emphasized a global product expansion. So a NISMO-fettled Juke may be a possibility for the U.S., but we’ll have to wait and see."

I'd think since Nissan has Infiniti in the U.S., they will focus on the IPL infiniti performance line cars.

Awesome!

This little car really grew on me, I hated it at first but I would consider one as a daily driver now.

Any hope to the Nismo version maybe being a manual + AWD? Is there a technical reason the AWD wasn't mated with the manual?

it's a sweet car no doubt.. but I am not feeling the NISMO body styling on this JUKE
I think I would almost rather have a regular juke and mod it.. lol
