At the North American International Auto Show in 2010, the automotive industry and the American public was officially introduced to the Nissan Juke. The mini sport utility vehicle was unlike anything previously seen on the market, and immediately caught the world’s attention. The Juke debuted as an all-new compact hatchback, that packed an impressive amount of power and performance, all while remaining practical.
The Juke is still a relatively new player to the automotive market, and with the redesigned 2015 model, the Juke begins its first year of its second generation. The Juke is a unique option for drivers who are looking for a sporty vehicle with excellent driving dynamics and practicality. The 2015 redesign included a new exterior and color options, that sets the 2015 Nissan Juke apart from other model years. Those Juke drivers who want to set themselves completely apart from others, can opt for a completely customized color design, in Nissan’s color studio.
No matter which Juke you choose, it is guaranteed you will stand out, and turn plenty of heads while driving down the highway. Drivers who are seeking the ultimate in luxury and performance can opt for the Nismo or Nismo RS model. When it comes to making a decision between the Juke or other competitor vehicles, it is clear that the Juke is a true standout in its segment.
The 2015 Nissan Juke received substantial exterior changes for its newest model year. Virtually every body panel on the newly redesigned compact crossover was tweaked, including its front and rear fascia. The Nissan design team responsible for the Juke made the vehicle bolder and increased its “wow” factor for 2015.
On the front end of the Juke, new xenon headlamps with LED running lights compliment the completely restyled grille. The rear of the Juke also features major changes, including brand new LED-infused boomerang tail lamps, and a reshaped soft cap. Driver’s can opt for either 16, 17, or 18-inch alloy wheels, which increases the style and quality of the Juke from previous model years.
Aside from the major exterior changes, Nissan also updated the cabin electronics, and added an optional around-view display technology. The 2015 Nissan Juke is still the affordable mini crossover, with a starting MSRP of just $20,250. Drivers can expect the 2015 Juke to be packed full of standard features such as, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, NissanConnect with mobile apps, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, Nissan Intelligent Key, and SiriusXM Radio. That impressive list applies to the base Juke model, and it only increases from there.
New for 2015 is the Juke Color Studio - a unique option for drivers to completely customize their compact crossover. Drivers can opt to pay an addition amount, and choose individual colors for ten different parts of their Juke. The rear spoiler, headlights surrounds, mirror caps, door sills, and wheels are just a few of the Juke components that can be color-customized. Color changes can be applied to both the exterior and interior of the Juke, and drivers will be able to choose from eight different colors.
Those who take advantage of the Color Studio are encouraged to make their Juke as unique as they are - Color Changes Everything.
The Juke stands out in the compact crossover segment by not only appealing to those looking for a unique look, but it also appeals to drivers who crave performance. The 2015 Nissan Juke is more powerful and performance-oriented than ever before, with the Nismo or Nismo RS trim levels. With a starting MSRP of only $24,830, the 2015 Juke Nismo is sure to satiate the appetite of performance-seeking drivers, who aren’t interested in spending a fortune.

The 2015 Juke is unique - there is no doubt about it. This model year brings more customizable features than years past, allowing it to stand out even more in today’s crowded compact crossover segment. The Kia Soul is the closest comparison to Nissan’s Juke - but in a side-by-side comparison, the Nissan Juke is the clear stand out.
For starters, the Nissan Juke beats out the Soul in terms of fuel economy. At an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 33, the Juke outperforms the Kia Soul which stops short at 31 mpg highway. The Juke features a substantially higher horsepower, with 188 and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The Kia Soul has a horsepower of 164, and gets 151 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2015 Nissan Juke not only outperforms the Kia Soul, but it also has a more powerful presence on the road. The Kia Soul can’t stand up to the Nissan Juke, and neither can any other vehicle in its segment.
