The 2015 Nissan Juke was revealed today at the Geneva Motor Show, and the performance version of the series is named Juke Nismo RS. It gains a new boomerang shaped headlamps and other minor cosmetic revisions.
The car gets an 18hp boost for the 1.6 liter turbocharged engine that delivers 215hp. Peak torque on front wheel drive models increases from 250Nm to 280Nm with Nissan dropping in a mechanical Limited Slip Differential on the updated version.

Cosmetic revisions (aside from the new head- and tail-lamps), include new "V-motion" grille, RS badges and red brake calipers, plus the option of Recaro bucket seats for the interior. Check out the gallery for more:
