More torque, greater fuel economy, lower emissions, reduced noise and the adoption of Stop/Start - these are just some of the benefits of the latest 1.5dCi engine now fitted to the Nissan Juke.

Of the 330,000 Juke models sold since its launch at the end of 2010, more than 132,000 examples - some 40 per cent of all sales - have been powered by the 1.5dCi. The arrival of the new engine, therefore, could not be more significant.

Now in its sixth generation, the changes have boosted the engine's maximum torque by a significant 20Nm to 260Nm, 80 per cent of which is available from as low as 1,500rpm, for improved driveability. And with CO2 emissions of just 109g/km and a combined cycle fuel economy figure of 4.2l/100kms, the new generation unit is the most efficient engine in the Juke line-up.

The engine also now features Nissan's automatic Start/Stop system, with highly efficient smart management technology which ensures the engine restarts within 0.5sec of the clutch being engaged. 

Changes have also been made to the gear ratios. The 1st and 2nd ratios are a little shorter to allow sharper responses at low speeds. Over the combined cycle, the new Juke 1.5dCi returns 4.2l/100km as opposed to the previous unit's 4.8l/100km, a 12.5% improvement.

The unit's overall power output remains at 110PS (81kW) while performance figures (175kph max, 11.2sec 0-100kms) are also unchanged.
