2020 Nissan Rogue Sport brings a fresh face to Chicago
Making cars feel distinctly different from one another when they look kinda similar is a tough job.
That's why Nissan gave the recently refreshed 2020 Rogue Sport a little unique dash of style, and some extra equipment too.
The 2020 Nissan Road Sport has debuted at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
Now, Nissan put an equal emphasis on both style equipment, giving each a little dash of freshness that should help as buyers continue to consume small SUVs like bears that haven't seen food in three months.
The Road Sport's exterior refresh is mild, but it is noticeable.
Up front there is a new set of headlights that help differentiate it from the larger slightly older Rogue by borrowing some of that [INAUDIBLE] linearity that you see on other new Nissan models like the new Refresh Maxima or the new Ultima.
There is also a new hood, a new front bumper and a slightly tweaked version of the V motion family grill.
Out back there is a new set of tail lights and the whole body can be wrapped in one of two new exterior paint colors.
Now the interior might be unchanged for 2019, but there is one extra piece of equipment in there that will grant a lot of piece of mind to all of the occupants.
That is Nissan's safety shield.
This is a comprehensive suite of equipment that includes auto-brake, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring.
And now it is standard across all Rogue Sport trims.
Previously, it was just the two higher ones.
Once now it's all three including the base.
This joins other major improvements from the 2018 and 2019 model years that include Apple Car Play, Android Auto, and the semi autonomous lane holding pro-pilot assists system.
Now, the power train on the other hand is a pure carry over relying on the same hundred and 41 horsepower for banger and mandatory continuously variable transmission as Before, both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available, but the latter will knock the price up just a tick.
The refreshed 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport goes on sale this fall, and pricing will be announced closer to its release.
