The official launch is just days away.
Nissan has been on a new car role of late, revealing the all-new Frontier pickup truck and next-generation Pathfinder. And the Japanese carmaker is showing no signs of slowing down with the new Qashqai, better known as the Nissan Rogue Sport in North America, set to make its world debut on February 18. Nissan has previously given us a sneak peek of the new car in a short teaser video, showing off the redesigned exterior and interior, and now, mere days away from the official reveal, we get to see one more look of the car thanks to a new video.
In the fifteen second clip we get a very brief glimpse of the shapely new lines of the Qashqai with a reminder of the car's debut date, and that's it. There's no new information, just a few shots of the front, side and rear of the car. Thanks a lot Nissan. What we know so far is that the exterior of the new car will feature new LED headlights connected to slim daytime running lights that merge into a larger V-motion grille, and dimensions similar to those of the Nissan Juke. We also know that the new Rogue Sport will feature a generous nine-inch infotainment display with Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay.
Other Interior features will include a 12.3 inch TFT screen and an available 10.8-inch head-up display. Top of the range models will even include massage front seats covered in fine Nappa leather. European models will be powered by a 1.3-liter turbocharged mild-hybrid engine developing 138 horsepower when selected with the six-speed manual transmission, or 158 hp with the CVT auto box. A more powerful e-Power hybrid version will join the lineup later on with a more serious 190 hp. We'll have to wait until the 18th to find out more about US availability.
