The front end of the Rogue Sport will gain sharper headlights, a more angular front end, and a larger version of Nissan’s shield grille. The rear end of the SUV will feature sharp taillights, a bulky rear bumper, and deep lines in the liftgate.
The Nissan Rogue Sport, known as the Qashqai outside of the US, will be all-new for 2023. The Qashqai was unveiled on February 18 but Nissan has not yet provided a Rogue Sports premiere date. In any case, they’re identical vehicles and a completely redesigned exterior and interior are expected.
A few teaser images have already been released showing new LED headlights linked to narrow daytime running lights that merge into the signature V-motion grille.
It will also come equipped with a nine-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility. Drivers will have a separate 12.3-inch gauge cluster screen.
Power will come courtesy of a 1.3-liter turbocharged mild-hybrid with around 158 horsepower. A CVT gearbox is expected and an all-wheel-drive will be optional. A hybrid version is also in the pipeline.
ENGINE AND IMPLEMENTATION
Although other markets will receive a hybridized model, the U.S. 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport will likely continue to use a gasoline-powered four-cylinder.
We anticipate Nissan will pair this engine exclusively to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) but offer buyers the option of front- or all-wheel drive.
ENERGY AND REAL-WORLD MPG
The 2023 Nissan Rogue Sport‘s new cabin looks thoroughly updated, with a more artfully shaped dashboard, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and a tablet-style infotainment display.
Photos of the Europe-market model are likely representative of the top-spec SL trim and feature quilted leather upholstery, stitched dash and door panels, and a digital gauge display.
