Nissan continues with testings of the third-generation Rogue. The new prototype, however, shows more than the previous, so we have some new details to reveal. As far as it seems, the successor is continuing where the predecessor stopped. More precisely, the thin camouflage hides an evolutionary redesign without any doubt. Still, there are a couple of changes that will make a difference without any doubt. Namely, the 2021 Nissan Rogue appears to be larger; plus, the SUV happens to be boxier than earlier and mostly influenced by the 2018 Xmotion Concept.
The resemblance with the concept is quite obvious around back. The camouflage most definitely covers concept-based taillights which are extremely narrow. Uphill, the SUV shows new “floating” rooflines coupled with a chunky spoiler, while the front end brings the biggest number of new details. Judging by the spy shots, there’s a totally new grille that looks like an inverted trapeze and a set of new headlights which adopted a split design. Yes, the Japanese car manufacturer decided to make things interesting with an arrangement that implies separated headlights and driving lights.
We haven’t managed to see what’s happening inside of the SUV, but it’s quite clear that the 2021 Rogue brings additional comfort. It’s not just thanks to a few inches here and there, but also due to a new architecture. Yes, the redesigned crossover will ride on an updated version of the CMF design. That way, the new model gets a chance to use new technologies, both under the hood and innovative features that make cars safer and fun to drive.
Performance-wise, the next-generation Nissan Rogue will keep its naturally aspirated 2.5-liter unit as the base option. On the other hand, the crossover will not skip the opportunity to employ a new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine, while our trusted source claims that the automaker intends to bring back hybrid technology.
Stay tuned for updates.
