The upcoming 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport is a popular crossover SUV, also known as the X-Trail model. However, Rogue Sport is a model for North America and it will go on sale later this year. Nissan plans some significant upgrades and changes. First spy photos are available, so we know more about Rogue Sport and its exterior design.
The Japanese manufacturer will deliver a more attractive and more modern model. The interior should obtain various updates, mostly in the technology department. As for the performances, a mild-hybrid powertrain is still just a rumor. However, Nissan will release more details in the coming weeks.
2022 Rogue Sport Spy Photos
The forthcoming 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport has been spied for the first time. New changes are visible at first glance, so here’s everything we know. For a start, the new model will look sleeker. The front fascia looks bolder with updated boomerang-shaped LED headlights and a recognizable V-Motion grille. Similar cues can be found on the Nissan Juke model.
Dimensional changes are a possibility, but this is not confirmed. The manufacturer will add additional plastic cladding around the lower dam. On top of that, wheel arches are wider than before. The rear part comes with new taillights. We are hoping to see new exterior colors and new optional wheels.
On the inside, the new 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport comes with more modern features. The cabin already looks pleasant and modern. However, Nissan will deliver more tech and a higher level of comfort. The cabin design won’t depart from the interior of the X-Trail model. Rogue Sport and X-Trail are basically the same models for different markets.
We expect to see more standard equipment, an updated instrument cluster, and a larger touchscreen. A 9-inch unit is rumored and it will also come with the newest version of the infotainment system. Lastly, Nissan will update its Safety Shield 360, so we also hope to see new driver-assistance features. That includes aids such as lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control.
Mild-Hybrid Powertrain Still Not Official
At this moment, we can’t predict which engine will power the 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport. The crossover could arrive with a mild-hybrid powertrain option. At this moment, this is just one of the rumors. We wouldn’t be surprised if Nissan once again offers the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 141 hp.
Still, a new engine option is a possibility, whether if that’s a hybrid variant or another conventional engine. Interestingly, you can find a lot of speculations regarding the all-electric version. However, we can confirm that the all-electric Rogue Sport won’t happen anytime soon.
2022 Nissan Rogue Sport Price, Release Date
The all-new 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport will now cost closer to $30,000. The price is yet to be revealed, but we are still waiting for this crossover to take off its camouflage.
Nissan plans to release a new all-electric Ariya SUV, along with the Pathfinder Hybrid and Armada models. However, Rogue Sport could arrive before them, as some reports are suggesting the end of the summer as the possible launch date.
