Nissan Juke Nismo-01

The Los Angeles Auto Show is set to host no fewer than 22 world debuts between November 19 and 21, and the Nissan Juke Nismo RS is one of them.

We have no official info, but reports indicate that it could be powered by a turbocharged 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine that develops around 230 hp and nearly 300 Nm of torque – about 30 hp and almost 50 Nm more than the Nissan Juke Nismo (pictured).

Apart from the extra grunt, the RS will reportedly feature sports suspension with new springs, dampers and damper rates. Like the regular Juke Nismo, it could be offered as a front-wheel drive with six-speed manual, or an all-wheel drive with CVT.

The Juke Nismo RS will debut alongside another yet-unknown Nismo concept on the Nissan stand.
