nissanA Look at the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport Redesign

Following the massive success and popularity of the Nissan Rogue crossover, The Nissan Rogue Sport was designed to deliver all the award winning features of the Nissan Rogue in a much sportier and fuel efficient package. The Nissan Rogue was named Cars.com’s 2017 Family Car of the Year for its great versatility and its outstanding safety rating. The New Nissan Rogue Sport is a sleeker shortened version of the popular crossover with a wheelbase of 2.3-inches and a length 12.1-inches shorter than the current Rogue. The Sport is powered by a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine that produces 141-hp and has an available all-wheel drive option.


Improved Aerodynamics and Fuel Efficiency

The Nissan Rogue Sport’s redesign offers improved aerodynamics that drastically increase the fuel efficiency and offers a smoother, quieter ride. Nissan put the new Rogue Sport through extensive wind tunnel testing in order to pin point aerodynamic deficiencies. They found that through the addition of aerodynamic panels around the rear pillars they were able to cut through the wind tunnel more effectively. The results of the addition of these aerodynamic panels created a much smoother, quieter ride and increased fuel efficiency.

Sporty and Spacious

The Nissan Rogue Sport may be shorter than the Rogue but through innovative conceptual design Nissan was able to offer all the cargo and passenger space you would expect from a modern crossover.  The Nissan Rogue Sport seats up to 7 passengers with available 3rd row seating. The 50/50 split-fold 3rd row seating is perfect for transporting passengers and when additional cargo space is needed the 2nd and 3rd rows easily fold down with the simple lift of a lever. The clever split fold seating allows you to pack objects that are up to 8’ long. Perfect for your kayaks or stand up paddle boards.



Innovative Technology and Driver Safety Features

The Nissan Rogue Sport offers all the latest technology to enhance the driver experience. Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, and a backup camera are standard with the Nissan Rogue Sport. Advanced Drive-Assist Display offers turn-by-turn navigation and live fuel economy stats to help guarantee you are getting the maximum MPG. The new Advanced Drive-Assist Display is located in the dashboard directly between the tachometer and speedometer to deliver navigation information without distracting you from the road.

The latest in driver safety technologies were also incorporated in the redesign of the Nissan Rogue Sport in order to make your everyday driving easier. View monitors with moving object detection utilize four cameras to deliver a 360 degree bird’s eye view of your vehicle. This allows the driver to get a better look at what’s around them. Intelligent Cruise Control is also available which maintains the speed of the vehicle while keeping the driver at a safe distance. If traffic slows down or comes to a stop, the Intelligent Cruise Control will respond accordingly. The Nissan Rogue Sport also offers all the standard safety features we come to expect out of modern crossovers, forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, lane departure warning with lane departure prevention, moving object detection, rear cross traffic alerts, and high beam assist headlights.

The 2017 Nissan Rogue has been the number one selling vehicle in the Nissan family. With its prestigious safety ratings and second consecutive year as Cars.com’s Family Car of the Year it’s easy to see why families are choosing the Nissan Rogue for their everyday driver. The Nissan Rogue Sport incorporates all the qualities and features that the Rogue offers in a more stylish and sporty package.
