The new crossover SUV 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport that sits between a best-selling Rogue and diminutive Nissan Kicks model will be soon available on the market. The upcoming model offers more attractive styling and features than the larger Rogue. Also, the refreshed cabin now is available with tons of latest techs and more quality materials.
Unfortunately, under the hood, this model will keep the same 2.0-liter inline-4 that produces over the 141 HP. However, this year we can expect some boost with output. Models like Honda HR-V, Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-3 and a Jeep Renegade will fight against this model.
2020 Nissan Rogue Sport Offers Great Handling
Visually, the newest 2020 Nissan Rogue Sports looks more sporty and modern. Also, it looks more aggressive than the larger Rogue upon which it is based. The front of this SUV is sportier thanks to the familiar Nissan V-motion grille and sleek wraparound taillights. Also, the look is more competitive with black wheel-arch moldings and lower plastic cladding.
The sides of the SUV are also good crafted thanks to the 19-inch alloy wheels and sharper lines. However, if we compared dimensionally the newest Rogue Sport with the models like Jeep Compass and Ford Escape the new Rogue is slightly shorter. Thanks to this, the Nissan Rogue Sport offers great handling and has a great off-road ability.
Cabin Design and Features
The inside of 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is presenting a refreshed look never seen before. The spacious cabin provides rooms for all passengers. Moreover, the front-seat legroom is as generous, however, the rear seat comes up short. Folding down the rear seats, buyers will get a cargo volume over 60 cubic feet. Also, techs inside are up to date, with a new 7-inch touch-screen audio system, Bluetooth connectivity, CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, air conditioning, remote keyless entry and more.
Safety is also good and we can expect great score thanks to the rearview camera, Nissan’s rear door alert, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.
2020 Nissan Rogue Sport Engine Specs
The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport will remain to be available with one engine option. However, from the officials, this engine will give more outputs than before. The current model comes with the 2.0-liter inline-4 that delivers to this Sports model 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. This engine is routed from front wheels (FWD) or all four wheels (AWD) through a continuously variable automatic transmission.
The EPA city/highway fuel economy is also good and it gives 25/32 mpg for the model with FWD and 24/30 mpg for the AWD system. Furthermore, as we already wrote, the new 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport model will be boosted and we can expect output to be around 165 HP. The advanced AWD system on this model gives more stability on the dirt roads and off-roading.
