With much of the US buried under a thick blanket of snow in recent weeks, Nissan has come up with a potential solution.

Meet the Juke Nismo RS, which gains three letters in its title to become the Nismo RSnow.

In case you've somehow missed it, the 18-inch wheels have been replaced with triangular tracks perhaps more at home on a military vehicle.

And it isn’t just for show, as Nissan’s video (bottom of page) displays the RSnow maintaining a steady pace driving across a relatively flat but snowy surface.

Road closures and the weather forecast will mean little to drivers of this compact SUV, with its all-wheel-drive powertrain further assisting its new go-anywhere boots.

The rest of the Juke is a familiar affair, with the same interior and exterior styling, and the same 1.6 litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine producing 161kW and 285Nm in Nismo RS spec - with manual transmission.

However, the RSnow is fitted with Nissan’s CVT automatic which robs the engine of 3kW and 35Nm.

The torque vectoring feature for the AWD system has been tweaked to respond to the tracks, and the RSnow has a top speed of around 100km/h.

Nissan built the RSnow for an ice-driving event in Finland, so we don’t expect to see it in showrooms anytime soon.
