The all-new Nissan Juke will arrive in Australia with a five-star ANCAP safety rating. The result follows comprehensive testing overseas, where Euro NCAP also awarded the Juke a full five-star safety rating.
ANCAP awarded the Juke a perfect score for adult and child occupant protection in the side impact test, a perfect score for its child restraint installation assessment, and high scores in each of the other testing areas.
The Juke also recorded a score of 81 per cent in Vulnerable Road User Protection, a category that focuses on pedestrians and cyclists. The vehicle features several active safety systems, including Intelligent Emergency Braking, which warns the driver and applies the brakes if the car anticipates an impact with a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist. This system is standard across the range.
The Juke also has accident avoidance tech including Forward Collision Warning and Intelligent Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Departure Warning and Intelligent Lane Intervention.
Automatic LED headlights with High Beam Assist, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Intelligent Driver Alert also appear as standard.
An Around-View Monitor 360-degree camera system, Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control and Tyre Pressure Monitoring are also available on other trim levels.
The new JUKE is scheduled to be available in Nissan dealerships mid-year.
