The Japanese manufacturer plans to redesign the popular crossover in the relatively near future, but we are pretty sure this won’t happen that soon. The 2020 Nissan Rogue is expected to continue in the same way. Despite the fact that it is on the market for more than five years, the Rogue is still a pretty strong selling. It definitely doesn’t show any bigger signs of aging and successfully competes with younger competitors.
Great overall comfort, excellent fuel economy and a long list of standard equipment are some of its strongest points. When it comes to drawbacks, there aren’t many of them. Practically, the biggest complaint goes to the engine, which would definitely use a little bit more power. Other than that, this is a pretty good SUV and we have no reason to believe that the 2020 Nissan Rogue won’t continue to marks solid sales numbers.
2020 Nissan Rogue Redesign
As we already mentioned, the current generation of this compact crossover has been around for more than five years. It was introduced in 2013 but is still looks pretty attractive, thanks to an update that we saw a couple of years ago. We saw a nice number of interesting styling changes, which includes new lights, front face and more. So, the current model completely follows Nissan’s latest design language. Therefore, the 2020 Nissan Rogue is expected to continue in the same way, with familiar styling and same overall design characteristics. The best we can see are things like a few more standard features, new color options, and similar things.
A smaller version, known as the Rogue Sport, is also about to continue in the same way. This crossover is pretty much a re-badged version of Qashqai and it comes with a couple of differences, including smaller overall dimensions, smaller engine etc.
This is where the Rogue really shines and we have no doubt that the 2020 Nissan Rogue will continue in the same way. First of all, the cabin is very spacious and offers plenty of room in both rows. Front seats are particularly convenient, praised for their amazing comfort and support. Rear seats are also very comfortable. When it comes to the cargo capacity, the Rogue is better than most rivals. You can count on almost 40 cubic feet behind rear seats, which is pretty impressive for the class. The overall capacity goes around 70 cubic feet, which are also pretty amazing numbers.
Still, the thing that impresses us most is the overall interior quality. Compared to most rivals, the Rogue looks far more upscale. There is a lot of hi-quality materials and when it comes to plastic surfaces. Everything is soft on touch, while the dashboard looks very styles, as well as color schemes.
Tech and Safety Features
This is also one of the model’s strongest points and we expect from 2020 Nissan Rogue to come even better. Currently, standard models already come with a nice amount of tech goodies. First of all, a 7-inch touchscreen is standard. It is very intuitive and easy to use, though graphics could be better. All in all, it works pretty well. Other than that, all models come with things like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and two USB ports. Practically, the only major complaint goes to the standard audio system, which features only four speakers. In higher trims, you can get up to nine speakers, as well as things like navigation, HD radio, etc.
When it comes to safety, we saw a nice update last year, which has brought a lot of advanced systems, such as lane departure warning, intelligent lane intervention, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic high-beams, which are all standard features. In higher trims, you can also get things like rear automatic braking, rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree camera, as well as the ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system.
2020 Nissan Rogue Engines
Things will definitely remain the same under the hood of 2020 Nissan Rogue. Count on the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit, which delivers around 170 horsepower and comes in pair with a CVT gearbox. Such amount may be enough for daily use, but the Rogue struggles on the highway. It’s not particularly quick, while the CVT makes it pretty loud at high speeds. On the other side, fuel economy is pretty impressive and goes around 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
2020 Nissan Rogue Release Date and Price
Given the lack of changes, the 2020 Nissan Rogue should come in a typical time of year. In this case, that would mean late 2019. When it comes to the price, we expect no bigger changes, so base models should go around 25.000 dollars.
