Nissan is giving the Rogue Sport a mid year update, adding on even more standard safety features while only tacking on an additional $470 to the model’s original MSRP, bumping it up to $22,110 sans the $975 destination charge.
“We’re making Automatic Emergency Braking standard across all grades of our best-selling models, including the exciting and affordable Rogue Sport,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc. “It’s part of our comprehensive vision for helping reduce fatalities known as Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
Where features like Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert used to be offered as standard in higher trim levels, entry-level ‘S’ customers can now benefit from them as well. For the Rogue Sport SL grade, its mid-year update comes with Intelligent Cruise Control as standard and the system has been added to the SV Technology Package as well, which costs $2,240.
If the standard package is not enough, customers can still add on extra options like the RearView Monitor, NissanConnect with navigation system, 7-inch touchscreen display, voice recognition, and more.
What has remained unchanged is the Rouge Sport’s single powertrain option, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with an Xtronic CVT and delivering 141 horsepower.
