With respect to the dimension of Juke, it’s said concept of Nissan Kicks is quite easily recognizable. All those minor changes or medications in this car come inspired from some other models.

Its bumper will have a unique design along with sleek air dam that connects larger air vents present on each side. Outward splitter type piece having chrome trim will give quite a sporty touch to this car unlike other Nissan’s.

LED lights get installed inside headlights for improved visibility whereas taillights are boomerang shaped.
