    Nissan Just Teased the 2021 Qashqai SUV and 2022 Rogue Sport

    In Europe, it’s the Qashqai, but here in the States, it’s the Rogue Sport

    The Nissan Qashqai, which is the European name for Nissan’s Rogue Sport here in the U.S. is due for generational update. The Qashqai will arrive in Europe in 2021 while we won’t see the new Rogue Sport arrive until sometime in 2022. That said, you can get a good idea of what to expect thanks to this official teaser video showing of the Euro-bound next-gen Qashqai being put through the paces.

    The video you see above was also accompanied by the various official “spy shots” that you see at the bottom of this article. The camo hides quite a bit, but we can make out the new LED daytime running lamps and what appears to be a whole lot of Nissan Juke DNA. Since the Qashqai and the Rogue Sport are being built on top of the CMF-C platform, both will be lighter than their predecessors. The doors, fenders, and hood will reduce weight by as much as 46 pounds (21 kilo) thanks to their aluminum construction.

    The Euro-bound Qashqai won’t be offered with a diesel engine this time around, but there will be a 1.3-liter turbo gas engine that’s paired with a mild-hybrid system. There aren’t any official details to go on, but Nissan is promising two different level of tune. The other engine is what Nissan calls an e-Power engine. It is, essentially, a hybrid range-extender that is used to generate electric energy, while electric motors will be used to propel the car down the road. Whether or not this tech will make it to the States in the Rogue Sport remains to be seen, but we’ll learn more over the next year.
