Sometime ago Renault and Nissan married and here’s what they’re booming. Nissan is all set to debut the Nissan Juke Crossover at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Now, we’re bringing you this piece of news primarily because we’ve been hearing stuff, though sketchy at this moment, that hints at a possible Indian launch of the Nissan Juke sometime in 2011.

We wouldn’t be too surprised if Nissan does launch it here in India as has been readying itself for a slew of product launches aimed squarely at the India car buyer.

That said, we don’t know many Indians would actually warm up to this crossover which looks radical and cool to some with others going to the extent of calling the Juke, puke, get the pun? So there, the styling is controversial to say the least with some angles looking better that the other.

The Juke as a car sits snug in the crossover segment, where it will vie for urban yuppies’ attention. Like most typical crossovers, the Juke too will offer it’s owner the tough, macho stance of an SUV with the agility and small size of a hatchback, thus making it an ideal urban runabout.

While you can’t go mud plugging with the Nissan Juke, you probably can use the 4WD to get you out of a couple of tricky situations like some dirt or even snow on the road. Internationally, the Juke will come with a bunch of engines that include a turbo petrol to make the going a little more quick and frisky. If Nissan India does bring the Juke down, we expect the 1.5 liter Dci diesel to sit in the India Juke’s engine bay.

Meanwhile, here’s the complete range of engine and transmission options that the Juke will get internationally. Stick around for updates on the Juke and it’s possible Indian launch.

    I would be the first person to own it if the pricing is right – say sub 10 lakh

    Just too too good for words, in aspects – a dream come true – just think I had this dream for over 25 years of driving a car, that this is it – I want someone to better it in price and betterment – then may be I would be a fan of that one piece

    Excellent looks,a similar vehicle with a competative price tag is required to break the monopoly of the scorpio in this segment.

    The design is really awkward. Rear looks ok front looks collosal gobsh..t. Just imagine a weirdo like this on indian roads. Pls everyone stick to normal cars. Dont go for crossovers.
