The interior has a number of distinctive features like the centre console inspired by a motorbike. Nissan designers have found ways to make the interior even bolder and more dynamic with different interior themes. In standard cars, the interior theme is a sophisticated grey, giving a technical feel to the car. Add one of the interior personalization packs and features such as the centre console, door trims and other elements can be coloured red, white, black or even a bright yellow. Depending on the model, there are two styles of fabric for the seat upholstery - comfort and sport - with leather trim on top versions.

Three engines are available for new Juke, with changes to the two petrol options: one is new and the other extensively revised. The existing and acclaimed 1.5 dCi diesel with 110ps (81kW) continues unchanged.

The Alliance-developed 1.2-litre DIG-T petrol engine, which replaces the outgoing 117ps 1.6-litre unit, is an advanced turbocharged direct injection engine delivering 115ps (85kW) and generating 190Nm of torque. Despite its modest size, the 1.2-litre (1197cc) turbocharged engine packs a real punch, offering sharper acceleration and greater torque (190Nm) for added flexibility than the outgoing 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine. Its lower weight, standard automatic Stop/Start feature and more fuel-efficient operation translates into cleaner and more economical performance.

The existing 1.6 DIG-T petrol unit has been further improved to deliver lower end torque below 2,000rpm. Producing 140kW, it is already Euro6 compliant with target emissions of 139g/km of CO2 for the 2WD versions. Among its new features are a higher combustion ratio (increased from 9.5 to 10.5:1), improved low friction technologies and cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation.

As well as a six-speed manual transmission, the new Juke 1.6 DIG-T 4WD is optionally available with a new Xtronic transmission gearbox which further improves fuel efficiency, acceleration and all-round performance.
