Check out our review of the Nissan Juke Nismo, straight from the car's international launch in Spain

Nissan has seen a gap in the market, which it aims to exploit with this, the fiery Juke Nismo.

Based on a standard Nissan Juke, the Nismo gets more power, a tuned chassis and bespoke styling to turn it into a VW Golf GTI-rivalling hot hatch.

The souped up crossover produces 197bhp and 250Nm of torque from its DIG-T turbocharged petrol engine. This means it is good for 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 134mph.

But to find out exactly what it’s like to drive, you’ll need to watch our latest video review direct from the international launch. News editor, Jack Rix, travelled to Barcelona to try it out and give his definitive verdict on the world’s first hot crossover.
