The Nissan Rogue Sport, aka Qashqai, to be Discontinued in the US

The Nissan Rogue Sport should have been a hit in the US, but it never really hit volume targets


  • The final units for the US will roll off the assembly line this upcoming December.

  • Sales will continue until early 2023.

  • The Qashqai will carry on in Canada.


The Nissan Rogue Sport, renamed as such solely for the US market, is globally known as the Qashqai. Said small SUV has proven to be a massive success in Europe, and other markets including Canada since the current generation launched for the 2017 model year. Due to its position between the Kicks and the Rogue, and lower volumes, it will be cut from the US lineup.

2020 Nissan Qashqai Review: Adequately Satisfying Customers

The final US-destined Nissan Rogue Sport will roll off the assembly line in December of this year with sales expected to stretch into early 2023. As explained by Car and Driver, the $5,000 price gap between the Kicks is too great, with the Rogue Sport starting at $26,255. Perhaps more damning was the real Rogue is priced only $2,200 more than the Sport while offering more power, features, and so on.

Here in Canada, the Qashqai trails behind the Rogue and Kicks, but sits comfortably in the third position among Nissan Canada’s best-selling models. The 2023 Qashqai is expected in showrooms in early 2023 meaning its future is safe here.
