Fiesta puts its jukes up with new 4X4-style crossover

THE much-awaited Nissan Juke hasn’t been launched yet, but it already has a serious contender.

Judging by these exclusive pictures the Fiesta is getting all muscled up for the crossover scrap of the year.

The boys over at the Blue Oval badge are keeping the changes very subtle indeed and the majority of the body panels appear unchanged. It does have larger steel wheels, raised ground clearance and wider gap between the tops of the tyres and bodywork showing just how much higher-riding the new car is - sparking rumours of a mini 4x4.
