Nissan Australia has expanded the second-generation Juke light SUV’s range with a new variant, while a carryover one now has two upholstery options.
Priced from $35,140 plus on-road costs, the new ST-L+ variant slots in between the mid-range ST-L ($33,940) and flagship Ti ($36,490).
As its name suggests, the ST-L+ features additional standard equipment over the ST-L, with it getting an eight-speaker Bose Personal Plus sound system, black/white cloth upholstery with white leather accents, and Black Chrome interior trim.

The next-up ST+ ($30,740) adds LED foglights, TomTom satellite navigation with live traffic, heated front seats and front parking sensors.
Meanwhile, the ST-L also gets three drive modes (Eco, Standard and Sport), 19-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker sound system, a 7.0-inch multifunction display, a rear USB port, an electric park brake with auto hold, ambient lighting, a leather-accented steering wheel and gear selector, black cloth upholstery with black leather accents, adaptive cruise control and surround-view cameras.
