Post 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS amps up the funky crossover

Filed under: LA Auto Show, Budget, Performance, Crossover, Nissan



Nissan unveiled an even hotter version of the hotter Juke Nismo at the Los Angeles Auto Show - the Juke Nismo RS, a 215-horsepower crossover that may be the most hardcore model in the compact CUV segment (until we can convince Mazda to build a Mazdaspeed CX-5, that is).

The 215 hp and 210 pound-feet of torque represent bumps of 18 hp and 26 lb-ft over the standard Juke Nismo thanks to a revised ECU, a new exhaust with a larger diameter tube, and stronger connecting rods. This amped-up engine can be mated to the owner's choice of a six-speed manual, which takes advantage of a stronger clutch cover and dual-mass flywheel, or an Xtronic continuously variable transmission (although the CVT model loses four horsepower and all of the extra torque that the Nismo RS enjoys).

"We expect drivers to feel a noticeable increase in acceleration - especially the manual transmission model - in the RS versus the regular Juke Nismo. It also holds peak torque longer. Combined with the Helical Limited-Slip Differential, which helps reduce torque steer, the sense of driving excitement is unmatched in the Juke lineup," said Pierre Loing, Nissan's vice president of product and advanced planning and strategy.

Aesthetically, the RS doesn't differ all that much from the standard Juke Nismo on the exterior. But on the inside, the RS sports a slick set of Nismo-branded Recaro seats that, to our eyes, make picking the RS a no-brainer. Really, be sure to take a look at these in our live gallery.

Speaking of that gallery, we've got a full range of live images at the top of this page, in addition to Nissan's stock shots below. Scroll down for the official press release from Nissan.Continue reading 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS amps up the funky crossover
