Nissan has taken its already improved Juke Nismo and heated things up even more, unveiling the Juke Nismo RS at this week's LA Auto Show.

The same 1.6 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine is fitted to both the Nismo and the Nismo RS, but the RS version makes 161kW and 285Nm - numbers that Nissan claims are best-in-class.

This represents a 14kW and 35Nm improvement over the ‘regular’ Juke Nismo, and 21kW/45Nm over the 1.6 litre unit fitted to the normal Juke.

The six-speed manual with upgraded clutch cover may prove the transmission of choice, as the optional CVT-equipped RS loses 3kW and all of the torque gained over the regular Nismo.

Manual buyers also get shorter 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear ratios to improve acceleration along with a standard limited-slip differential and all Nismo RS models feature all-wheel-drive.

The AWD system has been tuned for better performance and the RS gets an upgraded brake package with 18-inch wheels.

Engine connecting-rods have been beefed up to handle the extra power and the range-topping Nismo features a performance exhaust system, promising a sound to match.

Inside, the RS gets a red and black themed interior with carbon-fibre ‘look’ highlights along with Recaro sports seats with RS signage.

The 2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS is set to go on sale to the US market next year, with pricing and full specifications yet to be confirmed.

No word yet on whether we’ll see the Juke Nismo RS in Australian showrooms.
