For 2013, the Nissan Juke isn’t much changed. There are three new paint colors—Atomic Gold, Brilliant Silver, and Pearl White. There’s a $1,200 Midnight Edition package that supplies the subcompact Juke with black 17-inch wheels and a Sapphire Black rear spoiler and mirror caps. And then there’s the addition of the rearview monitor to the navigation system as standard on SV models and a redesigned Rockford Fosgate stereo. That’s about it.
Likewise with minimal changes come minimal price bumps. The base 2013 Nissan Juke S with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission start at $20,770, including $780 for destination and handling. Much the same as 2012, the Juke is also available with a six-speed manual transmission in front-drive SV models, also the same as the 2012′s price at $22,390. The automatic version comes in at $22,890.
Moving right along, the Juke SL with the manual transmission goes up in price some $70 to $24,780. And the top-range front-drive Juke SL with an automatic gets a $570 increase to $25,780.
Much the same as the front-drive models, the all-wheel-drive versions also stay close to what they were in 2012. The base 2013 Nissan Juke S with all-wheel drive comes in at an identical $22,430. Next up, the 2013 Juke SV retains its $24,540 price. But with the addition of the backup camera, the leather-lined Juke SL with all-wheel drive tops out at $27,430, or $570 more than the outgoing model.
But supposing that you want the Navigation package a la carte, it’ll cost $1,170 for 2013, or $370 more than last year’s.
Much the same as last year, the 2013 Nissan Juke comes powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower, although we anticipate a sportier Nismo variant may be on its way. Still, if that’s not enough, Nissan will happily sell you its hand-built Juke-R with 545 horsepower for the better part of half a million dollars.
The 2013 Nissan Juke is on sale now at dealerships nationwide.
