The Nissan Juke has surprisingly been one hot seller, especially in Europe, and the Juke Nismo is particularly hot. With a 197-horsepower 1.6-liter in tow, it is really no surprise that it is such a popular model.
Well, Senner Tuning is about to make the Juke Nismo even more desirable to you by offering up a comprehensive kit that makes the peppy crossover pop both aesthetically and performance-wise.
The Ingelhein-based tuner started by dousing the Juke in a black metallic Z11 paintjob, then it installed candy red-painted, carbon-fiber mirror caps for some extra contrast. A set of 9-by-20-inch Barracuda Tzunamee wheels in "Glossy Black" with red spoke accents and red center caps — matching the mirror caps — make their appearance on the corners wrapped in Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires sized 255/30R20. To help the rims fill the wheel wells perfectly and to bring the center of gravity down, Senner also installed a set of 35 mm (1.4-inch) lowering springs.
Senner then took to task under the hood, installing its ECU software, a performance air filter and a stainless-steel exhaust system with 130-by-105 mm (5.1-by-4.1-inch) tailpipes. These updates took the Juke Nismo up from 197 horsepower to 225 horsepower — a 14-percent increase. Not too bad for so little work.
With the Juke Nismo included, this total package comes in at €37,650 ($50,545 at the current exchange rate), but you can opt to upgrade your existing model for €7,990 ($10,726).

Deep Black and Popping Red
The deep metallic black paintjob on the Nissan Juke Nismo is plenty sick in its own right, but Senner went ahead at slapped a set of red, carbon-fiber mirror caps on the side-views, making this beast pop even more. The red pinstripe around the base of the Juke adds a subtle connection between the shoulder line and the lower half of the crossover.
Wheels to Match
With a red and black theme as tight as the body has, you have to toss in a set of rims to match. And the 20-inch Barracuda Tzunamee rims with red spoke emblems and center caps do the trick. The subtleness of the spoke emblems and center caps are a perfect balance with the "Glossy Black" rims. And those tires... Well, they look like their ready to rip the asphalt apart before they lose grip in the twist.
Beauty and Boom
Oh, we love tailpipes and none get us going better than some massive ovals hanging out of the back end. This wide-mouth pipes shine like no other and measure a whopping 5.1 inches across at their widest point. Though Senner didn’t attach a sound file, we can guarantee you these bad boys emit a tone that that’ll make your heart flutter.
Juke sport box!
No question, with the Juke, Nissan has truly struck a lucky punch in Europe since clearly over 350,000 pieces of the mini-SUV have been sold in the meantime. The most sporty version of the Juke in our country goes by the name “Nismo“ and provides a lot of driving fun thanks to 200 horse power and 18-inches serial rims. Moreover the winning formula of the Nismo version are its unbeatable serial features including styling kit, sporty shell-type seats with alcantara cover and red contrast seams, leather/alcantara steering wheel, navigation and multimedia system Nissan Connect and a rear view camera. There is also a standard metallic paint and a keyless entry and starting system as well as a cruise control system. And it may be hardly believable: all that is available for far less than EUR 30,000.00.
For those who may like it more sporty and individually styled, the company Senner Tuning from Ingelheim henceforth has a comprehensive tuning program for the Nissan Juke in stock. Senner Tuning has thus endowed this Nismo in black metallic Z11 with a set of Barracuda Tzunamee rims in the special version “Glossy Black“ with red spoke emblems and red hub caps. The Tzunamee wheel for this version is exclusively obtainable from Senner Tuning. Perfect grip in all positions of its service life is guaranteed all-round in the format 9x20 inches with the slip-proof Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tyres in 255/30 R20 in combination with the mounted 35 mm lowering springs. The housing of the external mirror in blazing candy red made of carbon gives the rims a perfect match. To keep the massive bumper bars free of scratches at all times, Senner Tuning subsequently mounted a PDC system with acoustic indication on the front and rear sides respectively.
Senner Tuning has now boosted the power of the 1.6 litre DIG turbo engine to 225 horse power and 275 Nm by means of software optimization and a performance air filter. A power converter also eliminates the moment of inertia of the electronic accelerator pedal. The processing of the exhaust gas is performed by a stainless steel sports exhaust system with end-pipes of 130x105 millimetres on the right and left sides respectively. The successful conversion is rounded up by a special Philips Silver Vision Chromium flashing bulbs, an LED license plate illuminating system and a set of LED daytime running lights.
The price of the new vehicle including extra equipment and tuning is EUR 37,650.00. The sum of all tuning parts is approximately EUR 7,990.00.
