Nissan will kill off Rogue Sport in December

Nissan recently informed dealerships that Rogue Sport production will end in December.

Nissan VP Scott Shirley said, "With the all-new Rogue and recently redesigned Kicks, we will continue to cover this market effectively." We can invest more in vehicle lifecycles and next-generation products.

Shirley said the move will allow Nissan to produce more Rogue, Kicks, and Pathfinder.

Nissan will provide parts support for the Rogue Sport through 2033, Auto News reports.

Nissan's 2017 Rogue Sport hasn't sold as well as expected. It was expected to deliver 70% conquest sales between the Kicks and Rogue. The Rogue Sport's future was uncertain by September 2019.

Sam Fiorani, vice president of AutoForecast Solutions, says the Rogue and Rogue Sport now have a larger gap.

The popularity of the Kicks and its lower price have hurt Rogue Sport sales, he said.

Nissan Kicks' future seems more certain. Early 2024 redesign will make it longer and wider. The new Rogue feels more modern than the Rogue Sport since its launch last year.
