We already knew that Nissan is planning on turning its NISMO subsidiary into a sub-brand patterned after Mercedes' AMG, but we didn't know exactly what that meant yet. Nissan has now released what the criteria are for a NISMO car:

  • At least a 10% increase in power.
  • Notably improved handling and suspension.
  • Visually different both inside and out.

Regarding those cosmetic changes, it appears that the Juke NISMO's red mirror caps will the brand's almost literal red-flag.
