Nissan Juke now cheaper to run
Nissan have tweaked the Juke’s gear ratios on both the 1.6 litre petrol and 1.5 litre diesel models to help increase economy and reduce running costs.
The move lowers fuel consumption which in turn reduces CO2 emissions, a change that will be welcomed by new owners. The petrol models fuel consumption has been improved by 2.3 mpg to 47.1 mpg and CO2 has been cut by 8g/km to 139g/km on the combined cycle. This leads to road tax being dropped to band E, saving £15 a year. Nissan estimate the average owner will save £232 over three years, based on doing 10,000 miles a year.
The diesel Juke benefits with similar results, the combined fuel economy increases by 2.2 mpg to 57.6 mpg with the CO2 dropping from 134g/km to 129g/km. Again, the tax band has dropped from band E to D, costing £95 a year to tax. Savings are slightly less over three years at £171.92.
Nissan have made these changes without affecting the price which remains at £13,995.
