NISMO, N.Y. — Nissan unveiled its new Rogue sport at the New York Post Sports Show on Monday, and fans took to Instagram to show off the new vehicle.

The Rogue SUV’s exterior features an all-new front fascia that features new grille styling and a large, angular grille in the front.
The fascia also has LED daytime running lights and rear turn signals.
The front fasciae also includes a new “lateral” grille design, which will include new headlights and taillights.
The body is a lightweight and aerodynamic design, featuring carbon fiber trim, a carbon-fiber hood, and carbon fiber doors.
It features a 10.5-inch, 10-inch wheelbase and has a top speed of 155 mph (209 km/h).
The new Nissan Rogue SUV is available in three trim levels: Sport, Sport+ and Elite.
The Sport+ is offered with standard and Premium trims.
