Word around the world wide web says Nissan will show the Nismo RS version of the funky Juke in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Details are limited at this moment but the media reports that the sportier crossover will adopt a revised suspension boasting new shock absorbers and springs, along with bespoke damping rates. The car will be exhibited at the event in the City of Angles together with another Nismo-branded concept but Nissan hasn’t disclosed anything about the mysterious vehicle.
Getting back to the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, the car will allegedly get a 4-cylinder, 1.6-liter engine outputting somewhere in the region of 230 HP and 220 lb-ft of torque. The Japanese marque plans on selling the car with a front-wheel drive setup and a 6-speed manual gearbox or with an all-wheel drive arrangement mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
