For 2014, the Juke picks up new 370Z-inspired headlights with LED daytime running lights, along with an updated grille, tweaked fog lights and a new front bumper.
Wheels too are new, while the rear end gets updated jewel-like tail-lights and a new bumper design.
There’s also a slightly updated cabin, which gains new trim colours and a wrapped and stitched binnacle cover.
Elsewhere in the cabin, the updated Juke gets a more spacious cargo area, growing 40 percent to 354 litres.
Mechanical changes see the Juke pick up Nissan’s 1.2 litre turbocharged petrol engine, replacing the non-turbo 1.6 litre unit offered with current entry models.
Power is unchanged at 85kW, but torque is up from 158 to 190Nm. Fuel consumption for the 1.2 engine is listed at 5.5 l/100km, helped by a start-stop system.
Power in the 1.6 litre turbo model remains unchanged at 140kW and 240Nm, although Nissan promises better torque delivery below 2000rpm thanks to a higher compression ratio and cooler Exhaust Gas Recirculation operation.
Speaking with TMR today, Nissan Australia's Peter Fadeyev said that local timing for the updated Juke is still to be confirmed.
