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.
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.
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.
Red Eye Flight
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.
The shifter is wrapped in leather with contrasting red stitching, and accented by a NISMO® nameplate.
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
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.
Get the LED out
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.
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.
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.
