Nissan Puts A Price Tag On 2019 Rogue Sport, Adds Optional ProPilot Assist

Following the mid-year updates made in spring, the Nissan Rogue Sport switches to the 2019 model year with newly-available technology and a slight price bump.

The base 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport S with front-wheel drive is priced from $22,240, marking a $130 price increase over the equivalent 2018.5 model. Nissan explains the higher starting price with the addition of the Rear Door Alert system as a standard feature on all grades and an updated audio system with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Speaking of grades, the Rogue Sport continues to be available in S, SV, and SL trim levels, each offering all-wheel drive as an option. New for 2019, Nissan has revised the SV Technology Package and SL Premium Package and has introduced a new body color called Scarlet Ember Tintcoat.

But the big news is the availability of more technology for the 2019 Rogue Sport, highlighted by ProPilot Assist and Nissan Safety Shield 360. Standard on the 2019 Rogue Sport SL and available on the SV, the ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system reduces the driver’s input under certain driving conditions, such as single-lane highway driving.

Standard on Rogue Sport SV and SL grades, the Nissan Safety Shield 360 groups several driver assistance features. Those include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Lane Departure Warning, radar-based Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and High Beam Assist (HBA).

Other optional extras available on the 2019 Rogue Sport include Intelligent Around View Monitor, Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Intelligent Lane Intervention.

As before, the only powertrain is a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine hooked to an Xtronic CVT.
