Nismo® RS


JUKE NISMO® RS – the ultimate performance crossover. More horsepower, sharper handling, better brakes, a performance transmission, and overall a lower, leaner, meaner attitude.

NISMO® engineers built the RS with a high-performance 6-speed manual gearbox with triple-cone synchros in 1st and 2nd gears, a strengthened clutch cover and, in the right hands, the potential for some serious performance. They also dropped in a limited slip differential that manages front torque steer.

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo performance brakes

We boosted both the performance and horsepower, so just to be fair, the brakes had to get the same treatment. Stopping power has been enhanced with bigger rotors up front, and vented rotors all around help keep things cool. Even the calipers make a statement - they've been painted a bright NISMO® red.

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo RS exhaust system

The RS gets some added growl and performance from a specially designed exhaust system. A wider tube and altered chamber increase exhaust flow to give it a deeper, darker tone that hints at its track-inspired roots.


Alcantara®[*] and Leather-wrapped Steering wheel

Covered in rich suede and leather, the motorsports-inspired steering wheel has a red center-mark at the 12 o’clock position, so you always know exactly where the wheels are pointing. This simple red stripe comes in pretty handy when you are powering through corners.

Paddle Shifters

Inspired by motorsports, available steering column-mounted paddle shifters give the NISMO® RS AWD’s CVT a manual feel for a more hands-on driving experience. It offers eight step “gearing”, compared to seven in a JUKE NISMO® CVT, and the six offered up by the standard JUKE CVT.

Genuine Recaro® Seats [*]

These race-inspired seats bolster the torso, back, and thighs to help keep you firmly in place through even the most intense g-force-generating curves. The integrated headrest has belt pass-throughs that give it a sporty look, and are compatible with a 4-point harness system. [*]

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo Tachometer

Red Eye Flight

NISMO® Tachometer
The word “tachometer” comes from the Greek "tachos", which means speed, and "metron", for measure. This fun fact has been brought to you by the vivid red tachometer that can only be found in the JUKE NISMO® and JUKE NISMO® RS.

Shifting Priorities

The shifter is wrapped in leather with contrasting red stitching, and accented by a NISMO® nameplate.



We’ve done our part. We lowered the aerodynamic profile, tuned the steering, and dropped the suspension. We also equipped it with summer performance tires and 18” rims, all in the name of making this fun-to-drive vehicle even more fun to drive.

Suspended Animation

The JUKE NISMO® suspension has been dialed-up for better handling, sharper cornering, and decreased body roll, all while maintaining a comfortable ride.

Get a Grip

Torque Vectoring
Traditional AWD systems only distribute power front to back. The JUKE NISMO® is not, of course, traditional, so it needed something else. Nissan engineers designed an available torque vectoring AWD system for the JUKE that also adjusts power from side-to-side on the rear wheels, giving you added grip through turns, and better traction all-around.

Need a Boost?

Turbocharged engine
The JUKE NISMO® RS delivers turbocharged passing power with ultra-efficient fuel economy. We’ve cranked up the 1.6-L Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) Turbo engine to give it more torque and 215 horsepower [*], a boost that you’ll really feel when you get up into the higher revs, like when you are passing.

Double Down on
the Downforce

Taking design cues from the ultimate supercar—the Nissan GT- R®—we completely redesigned the front and rear fascia, added a rear diffuser, tweaked the rear spoiler, and lowered the side sills on the JUKE NISMO®. The end result of all this: more downforce and an improved aerodynamic profile.

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo with LED daytime running lights

Get the LED out

Accent Lights
The headlights and front-end of the JUKE® are two of its most distinguishing features. The JUKE NISMO®, inspired by the Nissan GT-R®, was given just a little more attitude with two banks of LED daytime running lights added to the front fascia.

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo rear spoiler

Spoiler Alert

Rear Spoiler
That roof spoiler on the back of the Juke NISMO® isn’t just there for looks. This wind-tunnel tested wing has been extended, angled, and helps to create 37% more downforce for added stability and responsive handling.

2016 Nissan Juke Nismo Summer Sport Performance tires

Summer Love

Wheels & Tires
Summer Sport Performance tires wrapped around a set of low-profile, 10-spoke smoked aluminum-alloy rims help give the Juke NISMO® wicked traction and increased performance in wet or dry conditions.
