The recent European Nissan JUKE article spent a faintly absurd amount of words and on the color choice of the show car, as well as the LED lighting functionality of the JUKE Nismo.
Hiding on my desktop is another Geneva debut I have yet to cover: The JUKE Nismo RS with the solution to both the LED and icky color problems!
This photo of the JUKE Nismo RS for Europe confirms: all three lighting elements can now be used simultaneously.
Perhaps a trivial distinction, but one that American JUKE Nismo owners will understand.
The JUKE Nismo RS in these photos also wears a lovely satin grey metallic paint — the antithesis of what I dubbed Bile Yellow to describe the latest trendy mustard color of the BMW M4 and many others.
All good stuff. The RS also brings new seats that look pretty intense, plus a few other goodies along the way.
As we know, the JUKE Nismo and Nismo RS are both offered in front-drive or AWD. The manual transmission comes standard with front-drive, while the NISMO-tuned CVT is standard on the AWD trims.
Either way, this car has amazing street presence, handling, and chuck-ability that bely its sub-$25,000 base pricing.
The European mods to the lighting are not on American books yet, but will surely be available to buy and upgrade for any JUKE model — even the 188-horsepower standard trims!
