The new 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport is due for a complete redesign for 2023. This model will reportedly receive a sharper styling and a more modern interior. This compact SUV is placed between the little Kicks and the Rogue, and it also has a more whimsical name (Qashqai) in Europe. Unlike the regular model, the Rogue Sport boasts a modernized cabin with updated infotainment tech.
We anticipate U.S. models to arrive next year, featuring a gasoline-powered four-cylinder engine. Like many nowadays SUVs, the Nissan Rogue sends power through a front-wheel drive, and buyers will get an option to choose all-wheel drive as well.
2023 Nissan Rogue Sport: What Can We Expect
The new 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport looks more attractive than before. The manufacturer makes some changes here and there, and the Rogue Sport receives a sharper styling. Nissan hasn’t released any information about the U.S variant, but it’s clear that the Sport model will borrow many cues from the European Qashqai model.
Actually, the new model echoes the edgy styling that is also present on the updated SUVs in the Nissan lineup. The same styling is present on the recently introduced models, including the Nissan Pathfinder and Nissan Armada.
More Modern Cabin
The 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport’s a new cabin that looks thoroughly updated. As far as we know, the manufacturer will add more premium materials as well as new techs. However, as the previous generation, the new one will feature the same seating layout. Inside, this SUV offers two rows of seats and enough room to fit five passengers.
For 2023, the Sport model will come with a more artfully shaped dashboard, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and a tablet-style infotainment display. We have some new photos of the Europe-market model as it’s likely a top-spec SL trim because it features quilted leather upholstery, stitched dash and door panels, and a digital gauge display.
2023 Nissan Rogue Sport Powertrain Specs
Like the regular model, the 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport will deploy the same solo engine. This model will continue to use a gasoline-powered four-cylinder. However, other markets will receive a hybridized model, as per the latest news.
As far as we know, the U.S. Rogue Sport will be paired exclusively to a continuously variable automatic transmission CVT, using the standard front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive optionally.
Release Date, Price
The new 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport is the latest Japanese automaker’s model that will receive an complete overhaul. As we mentioned, the forthcoming SUV will look refreshed, and it will get a sharper styling as well as a more modern interior. Unfortunately, we don’t have exact information about its engine, but reportedly it should continue to use the same gasoline-powered four-cylinder. Besides this engine, some markets will get a hybridized model.
The release of the Sport model will happen sometime in 2022, probably in the second half of the year. Nissan hasn’t released pricing or trim-level information yet, but we expect the price to stay relatively flat. The current base model starts at around $25,000, while a fully loaded model can reach $35,000 easily.
