We'll admit, we're quite excited about the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, especially now that its price has been revealed. For $26,120, you can get the sharpest, sportiest Juke outside of the over-caffeinated, 545-horsepower Juke R.

That base price reflects the cost of the Juke Nismo RS you really want - the front-drive model, complete with six-speed manual. Snagging an all-wheel-drive, CVT-equipped version will cost an extra $2,000. Those prices don't include an *$810 destination charge.

The Juke Nismo RS boasts an extra 18 hp and 26 pound-feet of torque over the 197-hp Juke Nismo, thanks to things like a new exhaust. The big, must-have feature, though, are the Recaro thrones fitted in the front of the RS. As we said when the hot Juke debuted in LA last year, the seats alone may be worth upgrading to the RS model.

Take a look below for a short press release from Nissan.

      I work at a Nissan dealer and checked to see what all the RS included, you get bigger brakes front and vented calipers rear. You also get RS specific struts and the manual gets an upgraded clutch and LSD. The CVT model is cut back to 184 ft lbs so you definitely want a RS manual if you are looking at a Juke.

        Someone buying this car would order a CVT? Is that possible?

          only wait to get AWD, but why would you? Get a 2015 WRX and enjoy 65 more HP for the same money. oh and a choice of CVT or manual.

          We have one RS coming in April, its black AWD with CVT. We also have a white Nismo Awd cvt coming. I don't order the cars but i think the RS manual in pearl white would be the one to have.

        Oh Nissan has some good rebates on the regular Juke's this month also, up to $5k off. March is the end of Nissan's fiscal year so lots of deals out there. Not sure what they can do on the Nismo's that are out though.

      I understand that this is a mini-ute, so it might not necessarily be cross-shopped with a WRX. But for my money, it's a no-brainer. I'd take a base Rex and don't look back.

      One of the most hideous looking cars on the road. You can get much better for this price too.

      I've seen a couple black regular NISMO versions on the street, it's very striking car. The more hardcore the Juke becomes the cooler it looks.

      I love how Butthurt people get over the Juke. I thing the Juke RS looks awesome. If I weren't waiting for the production version of the IDx Concept, I'd consider getting the FWD with LSD and 6spd Manual. I'd drop it down about 2" and roll around smiling and laughing at all of the haters.

      I know there are a lot of haters, but I've grown to love the Juke's styling as distinctive in a world of very bland CUVs. I do wish that Nissan had come out a little stronger though; one really good rally version, priced well at the top of the range, would have done a lot to change the perception of this vehicle. There's a lot of potential in the car, it's just not realized in any incarnation. Still, it's fun and affordable, and a fine option for many folks who are looking for something other than the usual.

        We will inform your suitors that they should punch themselves in the face repeatedly until they look more "distinctive", with body parts in unusual locations and proportions in order to attract you. If cars could talk, I imagine the Juke saying "HAY YOU GUYS!" Sloth style, LMAO!

        I agree on it looking pretty good. Same with the Jeep Cherokee. I just appreciate that some automakers are willing to take significant risk. Everyone hates them, and yes, they're awkward, but I'd take one over a Civic. With that said, the Juke's drive trains are a snooze, though I'm not exactly its target market.

      I love how intentionally ugly this little crossover is. Someone should tell Lexus this is how you do quirky Japanese style right.

        Look at the rest of Nissan's fleet lately. This, the NV200, Cube, Murano, etc... this is clearly a complete and total lack of style with their current crop of designers, and not a group that COULD make an attractive vehicle that is beautiful to behold if they wanted to.

          I rather like the Cube's retangularity. It is a good city car and carries a lot. Big volume with small footprint is an example of sound engineering, if somewhat odd styling. But I agree that things like the Murano, Murano convertible, and Juke are rough on the eyes.

          Spot on...Leaf, Versa, Quest, Patrol, Sentra, etc. It's like the big three Japanese makes dared each other to make the ugliest cars and Nissan decided to try the hardest. Honda and Toyota have some bland and ugly cars but none as offensively ugly as Nissan's lineup.

      I don't get it. Why did they make this version even more ugly?

      Is it different? Yes. Ugly? I don't think so.
