One of the company’s best-selling models will continue without bigger changes for the next year, as 2019 Nissan Rogue. This small crossover has been around for more than a decade.
The original version came in 2007, while the current second-generation model is present since 2013. However, the company already did a facelift, which included various kinds of changes. The focus was on visual appearance but changes in other aspects came as well. Considering these recent updates, it becomes pretty clear that the 2019 Rogue will come without bigger changes. It will continue in the same way, featuring same styling and mechanics.
On the other side, some novelties in terms of standard equipment are expected, tough the base trim level organization will remain the same. Expect the new model to arrive in usual time, somewhere late in the year.
2019 Nissan Rogue redesign
After the last-year update, it is pretty much certain that the 2019 Nissan Rogue will come without bigger changes. The popular crossover received numerous modifications last year. It was a classic mid-cycle update, which included numerous changes, mostly in the visual aspect. Of course, most of these visual changes came at the front, where the company applied the newest design language. Still, we saw few tweaks to the rear end also. Interior changes were minimal, at least when it comes to the cabin design.
On the other side, the list of standard features has been expended, for each trim level. So, what to expect from the 2019 Nissan Rogue? Most likely, the new model will be identical when it comes to the styling and mechanics. On the other side, few novelties in terms of standard features are possible, though we are about to see same trims in the offer.
2019 Nissan Rogue trim levels
As we’ve already mentioned, trim level organizations definitely remains the same. There are three version of this popular crossover.
The base S trim includes standard features like 17-inch wheels, four-speaker audio system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, 7-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, rearview camera etc. Few additions to this already good list would be more than welcome.
A mid-range SV seems as the most reasonable choice. So far, it was characterized by all the features from the base S model, plus things like 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, keyless entry, push-button ignition, and dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable seats etc. Once again, expect few new things.

This engine comes with CVT, which provides pretty smooth ride, as well as great fuel economy results. In a combined ride, this crossover returns around 30 miles per gallon.
Things will become even better if you choose a hybrid version. This powertrain consists of a 2.0-liter gasoline engine and electric motors, with a combined output of 175 horsepower. Both 2WD and 4WD versions are available and fuel economy is even better.
