2012 Nissan Juke Gets Price Bump to $20,530
Nissan isn't messing with relative success, which means that the Nissan Juke crossover isn't getting any significant changes.
The Nissan Juke wasn't exactly aging, so it isn't getting much of an upgrade this year, only a modest price bump. According to the automaker, front-wheel-drive 2012 models see their sticker prices rise by $200, while all-wheel-drive models pricing inches up by about $350.
As a result, the least-expensive Juke money can buy is the 2012 Juke S FWD. Pricing for this model starts at $20,530, including $760 in destination charges. S models are equipped with a 188-hp, 177 lb-ft turbocharged 1.6-liter I-4, front-wheel-drive, and a continuously variable transmission. The S also features a six-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system and Bluetooth phone connectivity.
The Juke is offered in two higher trim levels -- SV and SL -- both of which offer a standard six-speed manual transmission. The SV starts at $21,840, and adds keyless ignition, automatic climate control, XM Satellite Radio, and a standard power sliding moonroof. The SL starts at $24,160, and includes features like automatic headlights, a rear-view camera, an upgraded Rockford Fosgate sound system, and a navigation system with a five-inch touchscreen.
For the SV and SL models, adding the continuously variable transmission also adds an additional $500. Though we enjoy the row-it-yourself nature of the six-speed manual, all Jukes built with the CVT are also available with a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, which adds another $1650 to the window sticker. All told, the top-end Juke SL AWD starts at $26,310, which is roughly $1400 less than its closest competitor, the MINI Cooper S Countryman ALL4.
