LA Auto Show: Nissan arrives with the Juke Stinger Editions to keep things fresh image

The Juke small crossover was unveiled back in 2010 and although its quirky design has stood well through time as it established an entirely new market niche, nobody can say it’s wrong to stir up things from time to time.

This is exactly what the second largest Japanese automaker has done in Los Angeles, where the Californian show has been the host of the new Juke Stinger Editions by Color Studio. Going in pairs, we first have the Yellow Stinger Edition that comes with a bright yellow paint job and black paint on the mirrors, door handles as well as the rear spoiler, while the bumpers have been dressed up in the body hue as well. Rounding up the amenities are the 17-inch aluminum wheels featuring a black finish. Inside the cabin the buyers will find black seats with yellow accents and yellow contrast stitching, a yellow enter console, yellow air vent rings and yellow power window switch plates as well as yellow accented shifter and black/yellow door trim. Moving to the second iteration, we have virtually identical accents and modifications, albeit with the colors switched up – black body and yellow paint accents.

More Color Studio accessories can be added to the Juke Stinger Editions by Color Studio, such as headlight trim rings, unique floor mats or a tailgate handle finisher. Motivation comes courtesy of the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that discharges 88 bhp (140 kW) and 177 lb-ft (239 Nm) of torque. It has been mated to the Xtronic continuously variable transmission and can also be fitted with the optional all-wheel drive system. Adding the Stinger Edition packages will cost another $990 on top of the 2016 Juke SV’s regular asking price of $22,300 or $24,150 with all-wheel drive.
