Nissan’s 170 UK franchised dealers have begun hosting a month-long series of preview evenings to showcase the new Juke crossover.
The Japanese brand announced PCP car finance offers on the long-awaited new model as potential customers arrived in showrooms this week ahead of the first customer deliveries which will get underway before then end of the year.
The special Juke preview events are being hosted by retailers between October 7 and November 15.
Nissan published finance examples ranging from £276.77-a-month were published for a range which starts at £17,395 for the entry-grade Visia and tops out with the range-topping £23,895 Tekna+.
Nic Verneuil, Nissan Motor GB’s marketing director, said; “The Next Generation Nissan Juke looks stunning, feels amazing and delivers a connected driving experience.
“Thanks to these attractive monthly finance options, ownership of this new model, even for the thousands of existing Juke customers looking to upgrade from the previous generation car, is both affordable and desirable.”
As the new Juke officially went into production at Nissan's Sunderland plant today (October 10), Nissan announced that it was ending its night shift at the North-East production facility.
The BBC reported that no jobs would be lost as a result of the move, however, and the 440,000 car a year rate of production would be maintained on the Qashqai, Juke and electric Leaf models built there.
