Black Pearl Edition design features

The Black Pearl retains the unique styling features of the Juke series and merges them with a more formal color palette.

The Black Pearl Edition includes white bumper accents and white outside trim around the Juke headlights. The door handles, the caps on the outside of the rearview mirror and the rear spoiler are also white.
