If the Juke is too small and the regular Rogue is too large for you, then Nissan's new crossover might be the perfect choice for you.
Nissan’s crossover lineup expands in the United States on May 11, 2017, when the first examples of the Rogue Sport arrive at dealers. Starting at $22,380 (after $940 destination for all trims), the CUV gives the brand an offering between the compact Juke and standard Rogue. Europeans might also recognize the new vehicle as the Qashqai, and it retains that moniker in Canada, too.
The entire Rogue Sport model range uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 141 horsepower (105 kilowatts) and 147 pound-feet of torque (108 Newton-meters). The output reaches the ground through a CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available throughout the lineup as a $1,350 option.
The Rogue Sport is the perfect middle child between the Juke and Rogue. Check out the comparison in the table below:

About the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport
The new Rogue Sport shares many of the design, utility and technology attributes that have
made Rogue Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in the United States. It is slightly smaller, sportier

buyers are looking for much more space than a compact sedan, while still seeking the
maneuverability and fun-to-drive feel that Rogue Sport delivers.
The exterior of the Rogue Sport features a distinctive “emotional geometry” design that
combines a progressive, compact body with powerful fender volume and an aggressive,
wheel-oriented stance that conveys a feeling of robust agility.
Among the available comfort and convenience features are leather-appointed seating,
heated front seats, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold
separately) and available Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System, RearView Monitor, Siri® Eyes Free 1, NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch color touch-screen display and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant 2. Also available is the advanced Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD)6 and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) 7 .
All 2017 Rogue Sport models come with a standard 141-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC 16-
valve inline 4-cylinder engine mated to an Xtronic transmission with Eco Mode switch and a
4-wheel independent suspension.
The 2017 Rogue Sport is offered in front-wheel and intuitive all-wheel drive configurations,
and in three well-equipped grade levels – S, SV and SL. Rogue Sport is assembled in
