2017 Nissan Rogue Sport review

The new 2017 Rogue Sport is coming to the United States for the first time. It’s about a foot shorter than Nissan’s best-seller – the Rogue crossover. The question is – if the Rogue is too big, could the Rogue Sport be just right for you?

The Rogue Sport is not entirely new. It has been on sale in countries outside of North America as the Nissan Qashqai. In United States trim, it’s powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is mated to an Xtronic CVT. The engine produces 141 hp and 147 lb-ft of torque. This is very similar to the engine that is in the bigger 2017 Rogue Hybrid. Fuel economy ratings are near the top of the segment, but are not class leading.

The Rogue Sport FWD is EPA-rated at 25 MPG city, 32 MPG, and 28 MPG combined.

The AWD model is at 24 MPG city, 30 MPG highway, and 27 MPG combined.

The Rogue Sport competes against the likes of the Honda HR-V, Toyota CH-R, and the Mazda CX-3.

What about price? The Rogue Sport S FWD starts at $21,420, which is more than many of its competitors. This is price is about $1,200 more than an even smaller Nissan Juke.

The Rogue Sport interior will be very familiar to you if you have been in a Nissan recently. It’s basically the same interior as in its bigger brother – the 2017 Rogue.
