Nissan has unveiled the new, second-generation version of its Juke small SUV.
The new Juke is 75mm longer, 30mm taller and 35mm wider than the outgoing car, with a 106mm longer wheelbase, but weighs 23kg less.
Boot space is increased from 354 litres to 422 litres, and rear seat knee room and headroom have been increased by 58mm and 11mm respectively.
Only one engine is available at launch - a 1.0-litre, 117hp petrol, offered with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Five regular equipment grades will be available - Visia, Acenta, N-Connecta, Tekna and Tekna+ - along with a Premiere Edition launch model.
All but Visia come with an 8in infotainment touchscreen, with Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity. TomTom maps and live traffic are also available, as is an onboard WiFi hotspot which allows passengers to get online with their devices.
The instrument cluster features a colour TFT screen measuring either 4.2in or 7in depending on spec.
Also available is a Bose Personal Plus sound system - standard from Tekna grade - featuring eight speakers, including two UltraNearfield units mounted in the driver and front passenger seat headrests.
The new Juke (except Visia grade) is compatible with the NissanConnect Services app, which allows drivers to perform vehicle functions via their smartphone, and Google Assistant, which allows drivers to control functions including the central locking and vehicle lights, and send destinations to the car's sat-nav system via their household smart device.
Standard assistance systems across the range include autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition, traffic sign recognition, cruise control and high beam assist.
Available systems with higher-spec models include blind spot intervention, which can pull the Juke back into its lane by applying the brakes on one side to avoid potential collisions, and Nissan's ProPilot semi-autonomous driving system.
Prices for the new Juke range start at £17,195 for the Visia equipment grade with a manual gearbox, and rise through £18,995 for Acenta, £20,995 for N-Connecta, £22,495 for Tekna, £23,895 for Tekna+, and £23,995 for Premiere Edition.
Jukes with the automatic gearbox, available with all grades except Visia, incur a £1,400 premium.
Initial reservations are open now, with the first customer deliveries scheduled for the end of November.
