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.
