The base S trim level now starts at $24,335 with front-wheel drive (all prices include the destination charge); that’s up from 2019’s $23,435. Stepping up to the mid-level SV will set you back $25,845 (up $610), while the range-topped SL runs $29,545 (up $390). The price to move up each trim level — $1,510 from S to SV and $3,700 from SV to SL — remains unchanged for 2020, as does the upcharge ($1,350) for available all-wheel drive.

At a $900 increase, the Rogue Sport’s S trim sees the sharpest increase of the bunch, but it also sees the most additional features. Automatic emergency braking and blind spot warning carry over as standard features, but Nissan added pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking and sonar sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and lane-departure warning with braking mitigation to help nudge you back into your lane. For 2019, Nissan confined such features on the Rogue Sport to SV and SL trims.

Other minor changes: Nissan’s Divide-N-Hide cargo organizer, formerly standard, now comes only on the SV and SL. Bose premium audio, formerly standard on the SL, is now optional. And new options include vinyl-and-cloth upholstery on the SV, plus a memory driver’s seat on the SV and SL.

The 2020 Rogue Sport is just trickling into dealers now. For those who can do without the styling updates — particularly if you’re shopping the SV or SL, which have fewer equipment differences — the 2019 Rogue Sport boasts some attractive discounts through the Black Friday weekend.
