The redesigned 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport is just around the corner. Unlike the regular model, the Sport one will offer more premium materials. Also, this SUV will host more aggressive styling. As you may know, the Sport version is relatively fresh. The first model debuted in 2017, and it gains a great rating in the mid-size segment. However, the new version can be classified as the carryover, so we don’t expect anything significant.
Like the previous model, the new Nissan Rogue Sport will use the same engine options. Unfortunately, it’s powered by the single-engine. It uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 141 horsepower.
2021 Nissan Rogue Sport Exterior Changes
Design-wise, the upcoming 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport will host a more attractive styling than the regular model. Moreover, both ones will be built on the same platform and because of that, dimensionally, this model remains the same. However, Nissan’s sports version will introduce numerous changes on the front. Design is evolutionary and we like retained V-motion grille that is wider than before. The LED headlights will also get better shape placed high up that sweep back across the fenders. A similar design wears an old Nissan Juke.
New 19-inch alloy wheels grace the SL trim and can be equipped with the larger 17-inch alloy wheels on the SV trim. On top of that, going to the top-level SL trim, buyers will get stylish 19-inch wheels, roof rails, and attractive fog lights.
Interior Looks Sporty
Like before, the cabin of the newest Nissan Rogue Sport is crowded with the latest techs. Besides that, this SUV looks modern and it provides a surprisingly sporty cabin. There are two-row os seats and this model can host five occupants comfortably. As we already mentioned, the Sport model will sit on the same platform as the predecessor, so we can expect the same arrangments. Finally, the cabin hosts more upscale materials.
The base version comes with a flat-bottom steering wheel, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, leather upholstery, a four-speaker audio system, and much more.
The SL package is the most expensive one and it adds more premium features inside like 9-speaker Bose audio, 4-way-power passenger seat, memory driver’s seat, and a power sunroof.
In terms of safety, the latest 2021 Rogue Sport has all propositions to become one of the safest SUVs ever built by Nissan. This model comes with automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
2021 Nissan Rogue Sport Under the Hood
The upcoming 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport is an SUV that sits on the robust architecture. Unfortunately, like before, this model will be powered with a single-engine option. Under the hood is the proven 2.0-liter four-cylinder powertrain that makes 141 horsepower.
Like before, the Sport model will use the same continuously variable transmission. The front wheels drive system comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.
Pricing and Release Date
Duo to the Covid-19 outbreak, the arrival of the new 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport is moved for later this year. Pricing is one biggest mystery at this moment. However, because this model will gain mid-cycle refreshments, we expect it to be more expensive. From some gossip, it will cost around $24,335.
