According to recently released spy shots, the upcoming 2023 Nissan Rogue is getting an overhaul for 2023. As we can see, the new SUV will look more attractive thanks to its sharper styling and a more modern interior. In case you didn’t know, this Japanese compact crossover is also sold as a (Qashqai) in Europe.
We anticipate that the U.S. model will use a gasoline-powered four-cylinder engine, and the option of front or all-wheel drive. Also, the next-generation Rogue should boast a more modernized cabin, which includes an updated infotainment and many new technologies. We expect the revamped crossover to hit dealerships sometime this year as a 2023 model.

The Rogue’s exterior design will not significantly differ from the outgoing one. Anyway, this SUV looks modern and very compact. It sits between the smaller Rogue Sport and larger Murano models. Also, it shares many modern designs aesthetic with the mentioned SUVs.
The design is attractive, and the Rogue wears Nissan’s V-Motion grille and a “floating” roof. Likewise, the more stylish LED headlights are introduced, just below the running lights and above the new shaped fog lamps. As far as we know, Nissan will also improve aerodynamics and reduce wind noise with active grille shutters, front air curtains, and underbody covers.
The new 2023 Nissan Rogue carries on the same interior layout as its predecessor. Inside, there is more room that you can imagine. Still, unlike the Nissan Armada or Patrol models that have three-rows/seven seats, the Rogue offers two-rows with decent space for five passengers.

Rogue’s cargo area reportedly can hold around 36.5 cubic feet behind the second row, and its capacity can increase to 74.1 cubic feet with folded seats.
