Nissan’s Juke, long a disappointed seller in North America since it’s introduction to the market in 2010, looks to see it’s last light in the US market according to informative sources. Nissan is looking to replace the Juke with the appropriately titled Kicks which many feel will be a better seller for the North American market. Expect the change to happen in a year or two.
- Nissan will kill off the funky four-wheel-drive subcompact crossover after the 2017 or 2018 model year, and replace it with the Aguascalientes-built Nissan Kicks.
- Juke entered the North American market in 2010 to mixed reception thanks to its Kermit-like posture and awkward front styling.
- Juke found just 19,577 driveways in the United States in 2016, down from its peak of 38,184 units sold in 2014.
