According to the most recent reports, the 2024 Nissan Rogue Sport will not happen. Another possible outcome is that the 2024 Rogue Sport will be the last model available. Introduced in 2017 in the United States, the Rogue Sport is not as popular as Nissan expected. Moreover, this modern crossover will not have a successor.
Luckily, the Qashqai model is available in Europe, which is a slightly modified version of the Rogue Sport. Nissan Qashqai recently arrived with a redesign, so Nissan clearly has big plans for this model on the Old Continent. Without further ado, here is everything you need to know.
Nissan Rogue Sport Says Goodbye
We recently reported about the Nissan Titan truck and its possible discontinuation. Now, the 2024 Nissan Rogue Sport will face the same destiny. To be precise, there is a possibility that the 2023 Rogue Sport will be the last model that reached production. In any case, retirement will happen very soon, per reports. The Rogue Sport is not so old model, firstly introduced in 2017. However, its design and some other characteristics are already aging.
Since the next-gen model is not on the cards, retiring this model is the only logical solution. Numerous reports are saying that Nissan plans to axe this model after December. The model will be on sale for a few more months before the stock is cleared. Interestingly, Nissan will allegedly offer parts support for another ten years.
Kicks and Rogue Models Are Still Here
The 2024 Nissan Rogue Sport will not happen, most likely. As we said, the 2023MY will be the last one to roll out of the plant. The question is: Why? For a start, the price is an issue. Don’t get us wrong, Rogue Sport is not so expensive. However, Nissan Kicks and Nissan Rogue are better-selling models. Furthermore, the 2022 Rogue Sport was using an old infotainment system, and new driver-assistance aids were not available.
Even the 2.0-liter engine is far from impressive. The Kicks model was recently redesigned, and Rogue’s generation is also relatively new. Nissan said that the discontinuation of the Rogue Sport will help the brand to invest more resources in the current lineup and some future vehicles as well.
As we already said, Nissan will not provide a replacement for the Rogue Sport model. Instead, Kicks and Rogue variants will continue with further improvements. However, Nissan offers the Qashqai model in Europe. It is a slightly modified version of the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Qashqai crossover is very reliable and it comes with a tradition.
Furthermore, Nissan upgrades this model each year. The 2023 Qashqai arrived with some serious improvements, and the 2024MY will be even better. This version now has a hybrid powertrain, it looks very modern and its interior is satisfying. Who knows, maybe Nissan decides to offer the Qashqai model in the United States in the following years.
