Despite the age and highly competitive segment, the Rogue is still a strong seller all around the world. Upscale cabin, a long list of standard features and a comfortable cabin are some of the reasons for that. The current generation has been around since 2014 and already received a mid-cycle update a couple of years ago. For that occasion, we have seen a bunch of novelties. On the other side, we presume that is still early for a redesign, so the 2020 Nissan Rogue is expected to be a typical carryover model. We count on the same overall design characteristics, as well as on pretty much the same list of standard equipment.
Of course, some smaller additions are always possible, but we don’t count on anything significant. Also, there is a chance to see a couple of new color options in the offer. Still, don’t expect to see the new model before December.
2020 Nissan Rogue Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Nissan Rogue definitely won’t change. This is a typical compact crossover, which puts practicality and functionality in the focus. Therefore, you can count on a pretty generous cargo area and interior space. In terms of mechanics, it is based on the company’s well-known CMF platform and shares a lot of things with models like Qashqai and Renault Koleos. Still, it is slightly bigger and comes with a couple of distinctive styling details. Speaking of the styling, this model has been updated a couple of years ago. For that occasion, we saw a number of interesting novelties, such as new grille, headlights, LED lighting etc. This model follows the brand’s latest V-motion design almost entirely. As we already mentioned, we don’t expect to see any notable change, except for a couple of possible new color options.
Inside the 2020 Nissan Rogue, things are also about to remain pretty much the same. The interior is definitely one of the strongest points of this crossover. The first thing you’ll notice is a very stylish dashboard design, which features not just nice aesthetics, but quality materials as well. In a combination with numerous tech goodies, this cabin looks very opulent. Despite the age, it looks better than most rivals. In terms of comfort, this crossover comes with two quite spacious rows of seats. The front seats are very massive and supporting, which great ergonomics. The second row is comfortable as well, with enough leg and headroom to accommodate two adult passengers.
The generous cargo area is definitely one of the strongest points of the SUV. It offers more space than almost any other compact crossover on the market. You can count on almost 40 cubic feet behind rear seats and full 70 cubic feet of overall cargo space.
This is the aspect where we could see a couple of novelties. Each trim level could get a couple of additions but are pretty sure that the core will remain the same. Therefore, base models will come standard with things like cloth upholstery, a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a four-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth etc. In higher trims, you can get conveniences like leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, and heated steering wheel, as well as tech goodies like navigation, HD radio, 9-speaker audio system etc.
When it comes to standard safety features, you can count on things like pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, intelligent lane intervention, high-beam assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert etc. Also, you can upgrade with things like lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, 360-degree camera and many more.
2020 Nissan Rogue Engine
Under the hood, the 2020 Nissan Rogue will definitely continue in the same way. North American models come with just one engine in the offer. It is a familiar 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which is good for about 170 horsepower. You can easily make a conclusion that Rogue isn’t the most dynamic model in the class. Such amount of power seems good for a daily driver, but don’t count on any spectacular highway performances. Moreover, this crossover may struggle at higher speeds. On the other side, the fuel economy is pretty good for the class. Thanks to a well-designed CVT gearbox, this crossover returns around 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which are above-average numbers for the class.
2020 Nissan Rogue Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we presume that 2020 Nissan Rogue will hit the market sometime late in the year, probably in December. Also, the price should remain pretty much the same, which means that base models will go around 25.000 dollars. On the other side, best-equipped versions can go up to 33.000 dollars.
