Nissan Will Finally Be Getting Some New SUVs

Rumor / Comments

Here's when you can expect them.

Following a disappointing sales year in 2019, Nissan will attempt to inject its lineup with new products for 2020. Of all Nissan's vehicles, the Kicks showed the most potential, posting a 150 percent increase in sales compared to 2018. The Kicks is Nissan's newest crossover, so it's no wonder why it sold well in its second model year. In order to reinvigorate the rest of its lineup, Nissan will have to introduce more new vehicles this year.

Autocar reports that Nissan will reveal three all-new crossovers later this year. Heavy emphasis will be replaced on introducing a third-generation Qashqai (known as the Nissan Rogue Sport in the US) for the European market since it is the company's best-selling model there. The US-spec Rogue Sport recently received a small facelift for the 2020 model year in the US but the model dates back to 2013 when it first arrived in the European market.

The new Qashqai is expected to be revealed at the 2020 Paris Motor Show in September sporting bolder styling reminiscent of the new Nissan Juke (which isn't coming to the US). Nissan is expected to introduce a new hybrid drivetrainand possibly a plug-in hybrid model using technology from the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This new Qashqai is not expected to ride on a new platform, but will instead use an updated version of the current model's CMF platform. And since this will be a European reveal, it may be a while before Nissan shows off an all-new Rogue Sport in the US.

At another point in 2020, Nissan is also expected to show off a new X-Trail (known as the Nissan Rogue in the US). Not much is known about the next-generation Rogue but it will likely get an overhauled interior with updated technology and a revised exterior that is more in line with the company's newer sedans. The current Rogue was introduced back in 2013, so it is about time for a new model.

Finally, Nissan will introduce an all-electric crossover based on the Ariya SUV Concept shown in Tokyo. The overall design isn't expected to change drastically from the concept and the range is estimated at around 300 miles with performance figures to rival a Z sports car. We aren't sure what name Nissan will use on this new electric crossover but we expect it to arrive sometime in 2021.
