Just got an email from the dealership advertising the new Nissan Kicks.
Replacing the Juke, our one and only HR16DE remains in the vehicle, no information yet on if the turbo engines from the Juke lineup will make its way in there. I don't know what they are doing to the HR engine to get 125 horses out of it, especially since Jalopniks piece on it isn't very nice, and directly calls out the natural aspiration of the engine (the engine code should give it away as naturally aspirated anyway). If whatever they did is simple, maybe we could copy it in our HR engines.
I for one will miss the quirky look of the Juke. At least the Kicks comes with a 5pd MT so you can avoid the CVT if you wish.
