2018.5MY Nissan Rogue Sport Getting Mid-Year Updates, More Standard Features

Apart from a few changes, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport remains virtually unchanged compared to the previous models.

However, a series of mid-year updates are planned for the compact crossover, reports CarsDirect. Automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning and rear-cross traffic alert will be standard on all grades.

Since pricing for the 2018.5MY is unknown at the time, we cannot tell you if the addition of the extra gear has made the Nissan Rogue Sport more expensive. Still, certain chances operated for the mid-2017 models led to a price increase of $400-$500.

Benefiting from the blind spot warning and rear-cross traffic alert on the 2018 Rogue Sport means choosing the mid-range SV grade, with the Technology Package. At the same time, getting the automatic emergency braking requires the range-topping SL, with the Premium Package. As a result of making these features standard, both packages will be revised.

Those not interested in the updates can have the current Nissan Rogue Sport from $21,640, without the $960 destination charge, in the S trim level with front-wheel drive. The most affordable all-wheel drive model starts at $22,950, and the range-topping SL, with AWD, will set you back for at least $27,640.
