jukeA new model joins the UK Nissan Juke range. Slightly oddly called the n-tec (no capital letters apparently) it is aimed distinctly at those who are impressed with the latest communication technology. Based on the Acenta Premium model, it has smart gloss black 18-inch alloy wheels and 225/45 tyres, together with some other body accents, but it’s inside that really matters. The n-tec incorporates Google Send-To-Car technology which, ‘allows owners to plan and send their route to the car before they leave the house. In addition to being more convenient, it’s also safer – removing the temptation to plot a route when on the move.’ The Juke’s navigation system is integrated with Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones and MP3 players. Drivers have direct access to Google’s Points of Interest database and can also request weather forecasts, local fuel prices and flight information. It is expected that the n-tec will become the best-selling Juke model. Prices start at £16,295 for the 1.6-litre manual, up to £20,000 for the top spec 1.6-litre DIG-T M-CVT model.
