The Juke – which goes on sale in June – will start at £13,420, whilst the X-Trail – which will be in showrooms from July – starts at £22,995.
It’s very much business as usual for the Juke, with Nissan keen not to change what has become a winning formula in the small crossover sector. The new price is an increase of £220 over the current and soon-to-be discontinued model.
The familiar Visia, Acenta, Acenta Premium and Tekna trim levels remain, but there’s a new engine line-up, a range of new equipment and a host of subtle enhancements. Chief of which is the 40% increase in luggage capacity on the two-wheel drive version.
The £13,420 entry-level Juke Visia, fitted with a 1.6-litre petrol engine, offers 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, a CD player, Aux-in connection for MP3 players, front and rear electric windows, a tyre pressure monitoring system and daytime running lights.
Working up through the trim levels adds luxuries such as 17-inch alloys, climate control. Bluetooth connectivity, colour reversing camera and a Nissan Design Studio personalised interior package.
At the top of the range sits the Juke Tekna. Available from £17,670, the Juke Tekna offers heated leather seats, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and a host of safety features.
But whilst the ‘New Juke’ is no more than a midlife revamp, the Nissan X-Trail is completely new. It positions itself neatly above the hugely successful Nissan Qashqai and includes a choice of either two- or four-wheel drive, plus five or seven seats.
At £22,995, the entry-level five-seat and two-wheel drive X-Trail Visia is £2,600 less than its predecessor. The mid-range two-wheel drive Acenta – which Nissan expects to be the most popular choice – will cost £24,795.
Four trim levels are available, starting with the familiar Visia and rising through Acenta, n-tec and Tekna. Standard features – regardless of trim – include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, follow-me-home lights, a five-inch TFT colour display, cruise control and hill start assist.
The cheapest seven-seat X-Trail will be the two-wheel drive Visia, with prices starting from £23,695. Buyers looking for the four-wheel drive option will need to spend a minimum of £26,145 for the Acenta X-Tronic. The most expensive X-Trail will be the seven-seat Tekna with four-wheel drive, which is one of four cars breaking the £30,000 mark at £31,695.
From launch, all new Nissan X-Trails will be offered with the 1.6-litre dCi engine, delivering 131hp and – in two-wheel drive guise – emissions as low as 129g/km. Up to 57.6mpg is possible on a combined cycle.
We will be reviewing both models in May, so look out for our first drive reports soon.
