It’s been almost a decade since the Nissan Juke revealed itself to the world, and a second-generation model is set to make its debut on September 3. The Japanese carmaker has released a teaser of the new crossover, and it looks to be just as funky as before.

Just like the original, the dual-tier lighting setup has been retained for the new car, although it’s now presented in a sleeker fashion. The swooping upper cluster has a much more slender shape compared to the outgoing model, and it meets neatly with the edges of the V-motion grille rather than being isolated at the top.

Further down, the round lights features a prominent three-pointed element within them, as an evolution of the same design cue we’re familiar with. The previous wide-width intake has also been shrunk down to fit within the “V” of the grille.

Nissan isn’t providing much information beyond a date and this teaser image, but spyshots of the upcoming model reveal a sloping roofline coupled to broad shoulders. Door handles mounted close to the C-pillars were also seen on the development car, as are taillights that resemble those on the latest March/Micra.

The new Juke is said to ride on the CMF-B platform, which is also used for the Renault Captur, and the engine line-up should include a mix of small-capacity turbocharged petrol and diesel options, as well as a 1.6 litre petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
