A restyled version of the popular Rogue crossover, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is a sleek vehicle that stands out from the pack. If you’re in the market for a well-appointed, spacious crossover with attitude, the Nissan Sport ticks all the boxes.
Small in Size, Big on Features
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is smaller than its Rogue counterpart, but the five-passenger crossover packs a punch where it matters most. It boasts a lower profile than the standard Rogue with a decent amount of cargo space and impressive roster of safety equipment. Essentially, if you like the Nissan Rogue, the Rogue Sport is a more compact version with all the looks and features you like in a tighter package.
The 2017 Rogue Sport comes with a 5-inch central console screen, cloth upholstery, 16-inch wheels, a rearview camera, and 60/40-split folding rear seats on the base S trim. You’ll also enjoy a four-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, and a USB input, as well as Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity.
Stepping up to the SV and SL trims adds even more features, such as fog lights, automatic high beams, a hands-free liftgate, remote start, leather upholstery, and a surround-view camera system. Other notable features include roof rails, a cargo management system, Siri Eyes Free, and NissanConnect telematics. You’ll also get larger wheels as you go up in trim level.
The 2017 Rogue Sport isn’t the most powerful compact crossover SUV on the market, but it does offer great handling capabilities and a fun driving experience. Every Rogue Sport is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is optional for those looking to take their crossover off-road.
While the Rogue Sport hasn’t yet been evaluated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it does include a slew of safety features that make it a smart buy. Standard safety features include electronic stability and traction control, daytime running lights, brake assist, automatic headlights, and a rollover protection system.
Available safety equipment only enhances the vehicle’s safety prowess. Consider upgrading to a trim level or package option to include blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, and collision detection with emergency braking.
The Rogue has always been known as a fuel-efficient SUV, and the Rogue Sport is no different. The younger sibling with front-wheel drive offers 25 miles per gallon in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. All-wheel-drive Rogue Sports return 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. For drivers looking to save money on commuting costs, the new Rogue Sport is a smart buy.
