THIS is the first peek at the new look Nissan Juke.
The Echo reported earlier this month that the Sunderland-built family cross-over was rumoured to be in line for a facelift.
An image appeared online claiming to show a prototype of the new-look version of the popular car, with changes to the front and back, a new front bumper featuring different air intakes and new-look front grille, and modifications to the back bumper.
Company bosses refused to confirm or deny the claims but have now said a revamped Juke will be unveiled at next week’s Geneva motorshow.
Nissan has released this teaser image, and the firm will be revealing more of the new-look model online each day until its official unveiling in the Swiss city.
“Promising even more striking design, improved efficiency and enhanced refinement, New Juke will be one of the stars of the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show when it is revealed for the first time on March 4,” said a company statement.
The Juke became Nissan’s second all-British car when it went into production in 2010.
Like the Qashqai, the Juke was designed at the car giant’s centre in London’s Paddington, developed at Nissan’s engineering base in Cranfield in Bedfordshire, and built in Sunderland.
Car enthusiasts will be able to interact with Nissan on social media to see more of the new design in the run-up to the start of the show.
