The 1.6-litre petrol variant now returns 47.1mpg on the combined cycle - an improvement of 2.3 mpg - and emits 139 g/km of CO2, a reduction of 8 g/km. As a result of these changes, the 1.6-litre petrol model now sits in VED Band E, meaning that owners will pay £15 less to tax their cars. With the fuel savings factored in, the optimisation changes will save the typical owner £232 over the course of three years (based on annual mileage of 10k per year and national average fuel prices: petrol 136.2p / diesel 140.3p).
Customers opting for the revised 1.5-litre dCi diesel see fuel economy improve from 55.4 mpg to 57.6 mpg on the combined cycle, and emissions fall from 134 g/km to 129 g/km. As with the petrol model, the revised diesel-powered Juke drops a VED band (from E to D), and now costs just £95 a year to tax. Over the course of three years, the savings add up to an estimated £171.92.
