2014 Nissan Juke NISMO RSNovember 23rd, 2013
The 2014 Nissan Juke NISMO RS is Nissan’s “hot hatch” entry for 2014. The Nissan NISMO team had one goal with the vehicle: make it faster. The NISMO RS has a 1.6-liter turbo four cylinder with 215 horsepower (at 6,000 rpm) and 210 lb-ft of torque hooked to a 6-speed manual transmission or an All-Wheel Drive version with an Xtronic CVT transmission and 211 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Along with the power train changes, the suspension has been stiffened, ride height lowered and the power steering tuned for a sportier feel. The NISMO RS comes with 18″ aluminum alloy wheels and aggressive 225/45 Continental ContiSportContact5 summer tires.
On the interior, the vehicle is fitted with Recaro Sportster seats with black suede centers, red leather bolsters, red stitching, and NISMO logos. The included Nav package comes with a 5.8″ touch screen and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system. The red accents are also carried over to the exterior, with red accent lines on the grill that carry over to the front wheel arches.
