New Nissan X-Terra SUV introduced

The Japanese company talks about this model as "completely new", which should mean that it is something really new, but the truth is a little different. It is a seriously modernized SUV prepared for the 2018 model year, which is called the Nissan Terra. The frame-mounted SUV was developed on the basis of the Nissan Navara pickup truck, which competes in the market with such rivals as the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport or Toyota Fortuner.

The Nissan Terra SUV is sold in China, Thailand, Indonesia and other Asian countries. That is why the new Nissan X-Terra is intended for the countries of the Middle East, and for that reason Terra had to be "withdrawn from the game" in order to be polished in a way to satisfy more demanding customers from these specific markets.

 By the way, the constructor reached for the name of the newcomer in the company's archives, albeit with a slight change. The SUV of the same construction configuration was already on the production lines of the company under the name Nissan Xterra, in the period from 1999 to 2015.

The first generation of that vehicle was almost a global model (North and South America, China, Central Asia, the Middle East), but the second generation model is known only to drivers cruising on North American roads.

So, the Nissan X-Terra shown here differs from the original with the Terra sticker in a more seriously modified body style. The muzzle is styled in line with what we saw on the recently updated Patrol model, while the rear end is adorned with various heel doors and lighting in LED technology.

The rims are adorned with a diameter of 17 or 18 inches, while the ground clearance is really enviable and amounts to as much as 243 millimeters. As a result, the restyled 4,900-millimeter-long SUV looks significantly more solid than the donor model.

 That is why the interior is completely new. If the Terra had an identical front panel as seen on the Nissan Navari pickup, then the X-Terra offers a completely original interior. It is made in the style of modern crossovers of the Japanese brand.

The instrument cluster, with a seven-inch screen, is placed in the middle of that mini panel, while on the central ridge there is another screen of the multimedia system, which can be eight or nine inches diagonally, depending on the configuration.

 There is still the third row of seats. The most positioned variant offers an autonomous braking system in critical situations, monitoring of events in the area close to the vehicle, but which is in the driver's blind spot, assistance in maintaining the direction within the traffic lane, as well as some other electronic aids. On top of all the above, it should be said that the sound insulation has also been improved.

 When it comes to the powertrain and chassis, it is necessary to say that these components are identical on the Terra and X-Terra models. The chassis is with double springs at the front and a continuous shaft at the rear end along the coil springs. The drive is on all four wheels with a tight connection and locking of the rear differential. There is also a reducer. There is also an electronic imitation of the lock.

However, the base version of the X-Terra has rear-wheel drive. Since we know that diesels are not at a price in the Middle East, the manufacturer has prepared a petrol, atmospheric 2.5-liter engine for the Nissan X-Terra SUV, which delivers 165 horsepower with 241 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Sales of the new model will begin in December while the starting price will be at the level of 27,200 US dollars. To add that, in Nissan’s global range, Terra and X-Terra will co-exist, and will not overlap in the same market. For example, the Nissan Terra for the 2020 model year was presented in Thailand a few days ago.

Either way, it’s possible that in a year or two, the Asian Terra will become just as advanced as the X-Terra is today. However, we do not believe that any of these models will reach Serbia, nor the surrounding countries.

The first details about the all-new Nissan Qashqai

One of the first and best-selling mid-size SUV models in the world is Nissan's "Qashqai". The third generation of this crossover is now in preparation, which, according to the announcements, will bring many changes in design and advanced technologies. As expected, electrified versions will be offered for the first time.

As a pioneer in the medium crossover segment, the "Qashqai" has been sold in Europe since 2007, where over 3 million units have been produced to date.

By the time it was replaced by the second generation in 2014, 17 direct competitors followed the "Qashqai" in the market with their models.

Despite the arrival of many European competitors, the first generation is sold in over 200,000 units per year during its lifetime.

Now the current model has as many as 26 direct competitors, among which are: "Renault Kadjar", "Ford Kuga", "Hyundai Tucson", "Mazda CKS-5", "Skoda karoq" and many others.

That is why it is very important for the new generation to continue at a successful pace and that is why its approach is very serious.

The new Qashqaii is based on the all-new CMF-C (Renault-Nissan) platform. It has been announced that it will use technologies from higher categories of cars, as well as that the proportions will be maintained. In terms of construction, the body will be lightened by as much as 60 kg, but also 41% stronger.

For now, it is known that it will be offered with front-wheel drive and 4 × 4, as well as with a 1.3-liter gasoline engine with mild hybrid technology, and Nissan's innovative e-POVER system, which contains an electric drive, is mentioned.

In conventional hybrid wheel systems, it is powered by an electric motor and a petrol engine, however, in the e-POVER system, the petrol engine is not connected to the wheels - only on a full battery.

The new "Qashqai" will be equipped with the next generation of ProPILOT for driving assistance, and the premiere is expected in the spring of 2021.

The verdict: The redesigned 2021 Nissan Rogue adds much-needed driving refinement, though it comes with a bothersome side of ride firmness.

Versus the competition: Return shoppers will miss the outgoing Rogue’s soft ride, but firm suspension tuning never stopped a compact SUV from selling like gangbusters. Other aspects run the gamut, and our overall impression is two steps forward, one step back.

Redesigned for 2021 with running lights spaced high above the headlights — a look popularized by the old Juke and, now, a smattering of Hyundai models — the Nissan Rogue comes in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum. Each offers front- or all-wheel drive; compare the trims here or stack up the 2021 and 2020 Rogue here. Don’t confuse it with the Rogue Sport, a smaller model based on a separate platform. All trim levels pair a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a continuously variable automatic transmission. We evaluated a Rogue SV AWD.

Improved Road Manners, Mostly

Competitors steadily surpassed the outgoing (2014-20) Rogue in the all-important battleground of ride and handling. When we compared Nissan’s compact SUV against the field in late 2017, it ranked mid-pack in ride quality and last, by a mile, in handling. The redesigned Rogue makes significant strides on the latter front, with a quick enough steering ratio for precise directional adjustments as you negotiate sweeping on-ramps. Nissan dialed back much of the prior generation’s nose-heaviness and numb steering, too. Steering and dynamics aren’t exactly towering strengths for the new Rogue, but they’re far from liabilities.

Unfortunately, that comes at a cost: The suspension introduces a degree of impact harshness over potholes and sewer covers that the outgoing Rogue dispatched with minimal complaint. Nissan says suspension tuning is the same across all trim levels, and our SV test car had 18-inch wheels (S trims have 17s, but the SL and Platinum have 19s, which may ride harsher still). Overall isolation and body control are fine, but the shock firmness is puzzling, given the Rogue’s comfort-oriented history. Perhaps Nissan benchmarked the current-generation Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, two popular but firm-riding rivals. In any case, the pendulum has swung both ways at Nissan: The recent Sentra redesign stays fittingly soft, while the current-generation Altima skews firm.

The 2021 Rogue gets the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine from that Altima (here it makes 181 horsepower and 181 pounds-feet of torque), rejiggered from an earlier 2.5-liter that preceded it. Paired with a CVT that raises revs fast enough from a standing start, the 2.5-liter provides enough power around town but needs most of its reserves to reach highway speed, especially with multiple occupants aboard. If you need more power while already in motion, the CVT again increases engine rpm quickly enough. It’s slightly quicker in a driver-selectable Sport mode, but that setting keeps revs awkwardly high all the time — not simply hastening the transition, as effective Sport modes often do.

The Interior: Quality and Utility

Rife with all the trending elements in today’s automotive interiors, the Rogue’s cabin features a floating touchscreen, electronic gear selector and high center console, plus lots of stitched dash and door surfaces. Quality mostly lives up, with generous padding where your arms rest and a sturdy grade of fabric upholstery in our test car. Cost-cutting becomes evident once you get to the backseat — the norm in this class, though a few rivals improve on it. Leatherette (vinyl) and leather are both optional, and upper trims pad where your knees meet the console. That’s a useful provision, as its bulky design inhibits some lateral space. Nissan’s spring-loaded electronic gear selector feels a bit rickety to operate, but it’s a rare blemish among otherwise high-quality controls.

Interior storage is in good supply. With no mechanical linkage to select gears, the center console has a medium tray underneath, plus multiple cubbies around the cupholders. Gone is the outgoing Rogue’s deep glove compartment, but the other nooks more than make up for it. Unfortunately, utility behind the front seats takes, well, a slight backseat. The rear seats lose the outgoing Rogue’s 40/20/40-split, reclining functionality and sliding adjustment, the latter of which allowed owners to maximize cargo or passenger space; now the seat just reclines in a traditional 60/40 split. Legroom is fine, but the bench sits a bit closer to the floor than before, such that some adults may find their knees uncomfortably elevated.

We measured 17.1 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the backseat in our Rogue SV, and that’s with a fixed cargo floor. SL and Platinum grades get Nissan’s Divide-N-Hide cargo system, which has a dual-level load floor that should add slight volume. In any case, the SV’s room lands within fighting range of others (we measured 18.7 cubic feet in a Toyota RAV4 Prime, for example). Note that it comes by way of our independent accounting of cargo space, a practice we’ve instituted amid inconsistent methodology from manufacturer-reported volumes.

Technology and Safety

The Rogue’s standard 8-inch touchscreen has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, both via tethered connections, and two USB ports. Tech options include two additional backseat USB ports and an upsized (9-inch) touchscreen with wireless CarPlay, plus 12-inch virtual gauges, wireless smartphone charging and a Bose premium stereo. (Android Auto is strictly a tethered connection; no wireless connectivity is available.)

As of this writing, third-party crash tests have yet to be published for the 2021 Rogue. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection as well as blind spot and lane departure warning systems. Nissan’s ProPilot Assist system, included on the SV grades and up, incorporates adaptive cruise control with hands-on lane-centering steering, both of which work from a stop all the way up to highway speeds. Note that this isn’t the automaker’s second-generation ProPilot Assist with hands-free lane centering, which debuted on the new Ariya SUV.

Features and Pricing

Including destination, the 2021 Rogue starts just under $27,000. That’s a stone’s throw from its predecessor, and in the thick of its rivals’ starting prices. Characteristic of the class, it’s well equipped on the safety and multimedia fronts but basic beyond that: Rogue S shoppers can expect manual seats, cloth upholstery, manual climate control and basic keyless entry.

Climb the trim levels, and you can get a panoramic moonroof, hands-free power liftgate, vinyl or leather seats, keyless access, power front seats (though without a passenger height adjustment), tri-zone climate control and heated seats in both rows. A loaded Rogue Platinum AWD tops out in the high $30,000s, which is also competitive.

Naturally, the Rogue’s improved agility is a modest adjustment to what it once was; this is no sports car masquerading as an SUV. The improvements come at some expense to comfort, and the utility setup takes half a step backward. But the SUV takes more steps forward, and it doesn’t come with a huge jump in price. In balance, it’s a notably better SUV than the one it replaces — something shoppers who don’t prioritize comfort or utility can appreciate.

2022 Nissan Juke

Nissan's boldly-styled baby SUV is back

Nissan Juke will arrive in UK showrooms next year, complete with more interior space and bolder styling than ever before, an all new.

What is the 2022 Nissan Juke?

Thanks to its bold styling, the Juke is the smallest SUV that Nissan makes, and stands out from the crowd. It’s an important vehicle in the history of the automobile, Nissan also says, claiming the first generation of Juke, launched in 2010, pioneered the compact crossover class that is now one of the most hotly contested sectors of the new car market. Mind you, other car makers have made similar claims, the three-door Toyota RAV4, for example, was launched a full 16 years before the Juke.

Nissan’s mini-crossover has proved extremely popular and in July last year the one millionth Juke rolled off the production line at Nissan’s Sunderland Plant, whatever. Nissan said a brand new Juke is built at the plant every 105 seconds, in a press release announcing the milestone.

It’s now nine years since it first appeared on our roads, but the model is overdue an all-new version.

Nissan has retained much of its bold design, though its reworked front end is likely to put off fewer buyers, because a big part of the original Juke’s appeal stemmed from its divisive styling,  its bug-eyed headlights in particular.

However, the car maker has made big changes under the skin, the new Juke is claimed to have 20% more boot space than the original model and it comes this time with much more gadgets and technology. The car is much better to drive, of course, Nissan says.

Patriotic British motorists who are interested in a new crossover may want to consider the new Juke, as the car will still be built in Sunderland, at the time of writing for the foreseeable future at least, while Nissan is a Japanese company.

What engines will the 2022 Nissan Juke have?

Nissan Juke buyers will have access to just one engine, a 1-litre, turbocharged three-cylinder petrol that produces 115bhp, from launch. As it’s the same spec fitted to the facelifted Nissan Micra we reviewed back in February 2019, regular readers of Driving.co.uk might very well be familiar with this engine. The new Juke comes out of the box with a six-speed manual transmission, like the equivalent Micra.

A seven-speed automatic is available on all trims bar the entry-level “Visia” spec as a £1,400 optional extra, unlike the similarly-sized supermini. The 1-litre engine in the Micra can return 47.9mpg on the combined cycle, but fuel economy figures will be revealed closer to launch.

The new Nissan Juke will only be available as a front-wheel drive car, it’s also expected.

Will there be a hybrid or electric Nissan Juke ?

It hasn’t said anything about adding more motors to the mix, while Nissan has confirmed the engine it will launch with the Juke. It remains to be seen whether the car maker has any plans to launch a hybrid Juke variant anytime soon,also.

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance is no stranger to electrified car tech, Nissan builds the pure-electric Leaf in Sunderland, and Renault is currently working on a hybrid engine for its new Clio supermini, a hybrid Nissan Juke isn’t beyond the realms of possibility, as well.

What tech will the 2019 Nissan Juke feature?

Juke perhaps unsurprisingly is a more advanced piece of kit, with nearly a decade separating the original car from the new version, the second-gen. It will feature an impressive array of safety aids, in particular.

Will come all versions with lane departure warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and an “Active Trace Control” that applies the brakes to individual wheels to help the car hug the inside of corners.

Available other items across the range as standard or optional extras, depending on the trim buyers go for, include: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reversing cameras, automatic climate control, heated front seats, Bose premium stereo system, Nissan’s suite of semi-autonomous Pro Pilot driver aids.

How spacious is the 2022 Nissan Juke’s interior?

So it’s no surprise the car maker has made big strides to improve this in its replacement, because the original Nissan Juke was criticised for its limited practicality. Being barely any bigger than its predecessor, the new Juke is now much more spacious: at 422 litres, the boot is 20% bigger than it was before, and Nissan says head and leg room have grown by 1.1cm and respectively 5.8cm.

How much will the 2022 Nissan Juke cost?

It’s not a huge surprise the latest Nissan Juke is a bit pricier than its predecessor, with all the new tech on board. The previous Juke in entry level Visia spec started at £15,520, the same trim on the new Nissan will set buyers back £17,395. For the flagship spec, the gadget-laden Tekna+ spec, price begin at £23,895.

An even plusher ‘Premiere’ trim will be available, from £23,995 from lunch. Identical to the Tekna+ trim, this version is differentiated from the other models by its race car like Alcantara fabric interior trimming, 19in alloy wheels, a claimed first for a Nissan Juke, as unique body styling and an exclusive black body and red roof paint scheme. Get your order in quick, as only 140 examples will be coming to the UK, if that’s the spec for you.

When will the 2022 Nissan Juke go on sale?

For the new Juke, Nissan now accepting orders. The end of November 2019, the car maker claims the first customer cars should land in the UK towards.

What are the Nissan Juke’s rivals?

The latest model will have many cars to compete against when it arrives on UK roads, with the compact SUV market having exploded in the 10 years since the first generation Nissan Juke was unveiled.

Main competitors of the new Nissan Juke’s include the Kia XCeed, Volkswagen T-Cross, Citroën C3 Aircross, Hyundai Kona, Kia Soul, Mazda CX-3, Fiat 500X, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport, Renault Captur, Vauxhall Mokka, Jeep Renegade, Honda HR-V, SEAT Arona, and Toyota C-HR.
