The Nissan Juke Shiro reminds me of tedious language lessons at school. So, stop fidgeting at the back of the class and consider this: 'Shiro' means 'white' in Japanese – and this variant replaces the top-of-the-range 'Kuro' that means 'black'. Confusingly, this beach buggy lookalike is available in various exterior colours, not just white, so 'Shiro' only refers to the interior. My ex-language teacher tried explaining something similar between thumping the table, swearing, and shouting. That bloke had a really bad temper.

The new Nissan Juke Shiro's central console is inspired by the shape of a motorcycle fuel tank, and finished in white. This complements the white/shiro/blanc door panels and window switch surrounds. The leather steering wheel, gear gaiter, central arm rest, and the edges of the seats all have white stitches too – and the leather seats themselves have a double layer fabric with a white background visible through the perforated leather facing.

Externally, Shiro can be identified by its dark grey seventeen-inch alloys, the satin silver door handles and mirrors, and the gloss black B-pillars. Very nice too. Engines come in three colours, the: 110PS 1.5-litre dCi; the 117PS 1.6-litre petrol; and the 190PS 1.6-litre DIG-T. 4x4 and CVT automatic versions are also available. I can hardly wait for the 'Pink'.
