The facelifted Nissan Rogue Sport – aka the Qashqai overseas, has arrived in America with an MSRP of $23,240, $900 more than the model it replaces.
The base Rogue Sport S is followed by the $24,750 SV and $28,450 SL. All of them come with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optionally available setting you back $24,590, $26,100 and $29,800, respectively for each trim. Pricing does not include the $1,095 handling and destination charge and dealer fees.
All trim levels get an assortment of standard driving assistance technologies. These include the Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and High Beam Assist. The compact crossover can also be had with the ProPilot Assist, Intelligent Driver Alertness and Traffic Sign Recognition.
The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, is offered at no extra cost, alongside the rear seat air vents and center armrest, yet for things such as the Bose sound system, Door to Door Navigation, NissanConnect Services and others, you will have to pay more.
For the 2020MY, the Rogue Sport has an updated look, with restyled lighting units, new 19-inch wheels and expanded color palette that includes the Monarch Orange Metallic and Nitro Lime Metallic paint finishes.
Power still comes from the familiar 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 141 hp (143 PS / 105 kW) and 147 lb-ft (199 Nm) of torque, hooked up to a CVT. Fuel economy should be rated at 25/32 mpg (9.4/7.4 l/100 km) in city/highway.
