We're not sure whether it's trying to be a CRX beater or a faster small utility, but whatever it is, we know one thing the Nissan Juke Nismo ($TBA) isn't: slow. Powered by a tuned version of the standard Juke's 1.6L turbocharged engine, we're guessing it'll be putting out quite a bit more than the respectable 188 hp of the standard model — and the outside will show it, thanks to a new aero package, wider 18-inch alloy wheels , a tailgate spoiler, and a new grille. Inside, the steering wheel, pedals, gauges, gear knob and door trims have been redesigned and paired with suede-trimmed Nismo sports seats with red stitching. The good news? A US launch has already been confirmed. The bad? Who knows when that will actually happen.
