Nissan unveiled an updated version of its controversial Juke subcompact at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show. The diminutive SUV is a best-seller in Europe, its most popular market, but hasn't found much fanfare in the U.S. Nissan hopes this update will allow it to continue its dominance of the premium subcompact category overseas and maybe turn more heads in the U.S.
The new European version maintains the unusual exterior style of the current Juke, while adapting some front and rear styling from the broader look of the Nissan family. The most notable change is new running lights, which look similar to those on the Altima sedan, and are still prominently located in the upper fenders. The large, round headlights are now nestled into a revised grille and lower bumper design.
