Euro-Spec Nissan Juke Diesel Gets Updates

More Torque, Better Economy, Auto Stop-Start Among Improvements

Edward A. SanchezJun 11, 2013
The U.S.-spec Nissan Juke is offered with only one engine option, a 1.6-liter direct-injected turbo producing between 188 and 197 hp (on the Nismo trim) with either a CVT or six-speed manual. But Europeans have had the choice of a thrifty turbodiesel since the car launched in that market starting in the 2011 model year. In fact, about a third of Juke sales in the U.K. have been diesels since the model's launch.
The Juke diesel is getting some strategic updates to improve refinement, fuel economy, and responsiveness. But at a leisurely 0-60 time of around 11 seconds, buyers seeking outright performance are still better served by the GDI turbo version. The 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine has been revised with new fuel injector nozzles with a more precise spray pattern for improved combustion efficiency, and a revised low-inertia turbocharger for better throttle response.

In addition, the Juke's diesel engine gets a thermostatically controlled variable displacement oil pump, a diamond-like carbon coating on the valve tappets, and an auto stop-start system. These improvements amount to a claimed 14-percent improvement in overall fuel efficiency. Horsepower remains unchanged at 108, but peak torque goes from 177 lb-ft to 192.

Jukes sold in the U.K. and European markets come from Nissan's giant Sunderland assembly plant in England, one of the largest automotive production facilities in the country by volume, with an annual peak production capacity of almost 500,000 units.
