When the Nissan Juke first debuted just over three years ago we were intrigued. Frankly, the car created a niche that we hadn’t seen before and we welcomed its arrival. Just this week in Geneva Nissan revealed a face lifted Juke.
The new Juke maintains the general looks and shape of its predecessor, yet adopts more recent Nissan design cues. The car adopts the new corporate Nissan grille as well as headlights inspired by those on the 370z. LEDs have also been integrated into the mirrors and rear taillights.
The Juke is a relatively small crossover and therefore doesn’t need a lot of engine to get moving. With the new Juke Nissan actually decreased the engine size, opting for a 1.2 liter DIG-T turbo engine currently found in Nissans overseas. Despite the size reduction, the turbo brings power to 115hp, essentially the equivalent of the outgoing model. While horsepower remains the same, the engine brings a healthy dose of torque not available in the outgoing naturally aspirated model. As before, the Juke will be available with a manual or automatic transmission that send power to both axles.
Look for the refreshed Juke at Morrie’s Brooklyn Park Nissan this summer.
It was another busy day at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the 2013 LA Auto Show! We made sure to get plenty of coverage of all the Morrie’s brands, plus more to share with you. Here are more pictures and information from the latest debuts here at the show.

Ford’s main attraction this week at the Auto Show was the 2015 Edge Crossover Concept and it sure drew a lot of attention. We were excited to be able to see the concept that will hopefully pave the way for the future of the production model Edge.
We were very excited to be able to get a closer look at both the 2015 Subaru WRX and the Subaru Legacy concept! The WRX stole the show this week as auto enthusiasts have been waiting for the production model to be unveiled since the concept debuted last year in New York. The Legacy concept was just as beautiful as we had anticipated with menacing headlights and a low sleek roofline.

Kia’s k900 luxury sedan also debuted this week which gave us a better idea of the direction that Kia is headed with their transition to a full luxury lineup. Stay tuned for more information on when we will have one on our show floor at Morrie’s Kia.
We also got to see some excitement at the Hyundai booth where they brought an all-new Tucson hydrogen fuel-cell crossover, the 2014 Hyundai Elantra and a Veloster Turbo R-SPEC! Check out our pictures below.

Cadillac brought the Elmiraj concept to the Auto Show this week and it was constantly surrounded with individuals trying to get a gander. This vehicle is easy on the eyes with it’s long sleek sweeping hood, elegant look and gorgeous interior. This vehicle may not make it into production but we are keeping our fingers crossed. As well as the concept, Cadillac also had their recently revealed 2015 Cadillac Escalade on display.
Morrie’s is proud to bring you the latest news as it happens live from the LA Auto Show. Make sure to check our YouTube page soon for videos on all these great new models!
