These upgrade comes at no hike in pricing, and covers both 1.5 and 1.6 liter diesel and petrol engines.

They results in savings of up to £232.47 over three years.

Car buyers opting for Nissan’s sector-defining Juke crossover are about to get even more than they bargained for. As part of Nissan’s constant drive to improve its products, both the 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre dCi diesel drivetrains have undergone an optimisation programme to further reduce emissions and boost fuel economy.

The 1.6-litre petrol variant now returns 47.1mpg on the combined cycle – an improvement of 2.3mpg – and emits just 139g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8g/km. As a result of these changes, the 1.6-litre petrol model now sits in VED Band E, meaning that owners will pay £15 less to tax their cars. With the fuel savings factored in, the optimisation changes will save the typical owner £232 over the course of three years*.

Customers opting for the revised 1.5-litre dCi diesel see fuel economy improve from 55.4mpg to 57.6mpg on the combined cycle, and emissions fall from 134g/km to just 129g/km. As with the petrol model, the revised diesel-powered Juke drops a VED band (from E to D), and now costs just £95 a year to tax. Over the course of three years, the savings add up to an estimated £171.92*.

The icing on the cake for all Juke buyers is that these revisions come at no additional cost. On-the-road prices have been held, meaning that buyers really can make a saving by choosing the Juke.
