After three years in the market, Nissan has decided to give the third-generation Qashqai (Rogue Sport in North America) a mid-cycle refresh. The facelifted compact crossover is due in a couple of days, but we already have a pretty clear picture of what it will look like.
The occasional spy shot and the Japanese marque's official teasers have been used as the foundation stone of a few renderings that came to the World Wide Web courtesy of Kolesa. Their rendering artist gave the model a very realistic finish, and we are convinced these digital illustrations stay true to the actual ride itself.

Changes include an entirely new grille, much larger in size compared to the current one. The hood and lighting units are also new. The bumper has a slightly more intricate lower section, and the side vents are bigger. At the other end, the 2025 Nissan Qashqai has restyled taillamps, a new bumper and a new diffuser. It is likely that the company will round off the exterior updates with fresh colors and wheels.

Inside, the outgoing Qashqai has a 9-inch infotainment, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and an HUD, and these are likely to have been updated. We also expect the team behind its development to have made it a bit techier, and chances are it could feature a new steering wheel and perhaps a tweaked center console. The refined comfort and safety features could complete the model's mid-cycle refresh.

The powertrain family is expected to carry over virtually unchanged. The engines vary from one market to the other, and we believe it will still feature the 1.3-liter turbo'd unit with mild-hybrid tech in the entry-level flavor, alongside the electrified 1.5L mill. A fully-electric derivative will launch after 2025, yet it won't share much in common with the ICE-powered versions, as it should utilize a different construction.

Are you excited about the Qashqai's North American sibling, the Rogue Sport? Well, unless you've been living under a rock, you are aware that Nissan decided to kill this vehicle in our market. As a result, the refreshed one won't cross the ocean, either, so customers interested in such a ride will have to check out what the competition has to offer instead – or choose the slightly larger Rogue (X-Trail overseas), which comes from $28,420, plus destination and dealer fees.

Full details about the 2025 Nissan Qashqai for Europe and other markets will be revealed on April 17, which is when the facelifted iteration will be unveiled in the Old Continent. The order books should open shortly after the presentation, with Australia and other markets likely receiving the refreshed compact crossover in the coming months. Are you sad about not having a Rogue Sport anymore in the New World? And do you think the 2025 model looks better? Drop a line below and speak your mind about it.
