Widely anticipated Nissan Juke launched with much fanfare in Japan

The launch was filed with great reception and since its soft launch last month, Nissan announced that they have received orders exceeding 10,000 units in Japan. This is translated to more than 8 times its target of 1,300 units monthly. 29% of the orders are for t he Radiant Red version which is most of what the pictures come with. Nissan is positioning the Juke just below the Qashqai crossover where it is supposedly an alternative for the B-Segment Supermini class. No news of whether it will get here yet although Nissan is planning to fit the 1.6 liter turbo engine for the Europe market.
