2017 Nissan Rogue Sport

Nissan Rogue is now the best-selling car/SUV in the U.S. market.

The new Rogue Sport is set to join Nissan’s #1 selling Rogue in spring 2017. Together, the combined models will appeal to a broad audience. Slightly smaller dimensionally than Rogue, Rogue Sport provides the perfect size and utility for active urban lives, featuring responsive handling and maneuverability.

Some of the major differences between Rogue Sport and Rogue:

“Right sized” Rogue Sport is sportier and still the flexibility of a compact CUV.
Rouge Sport is designed for Millenials and Empty Nesters, no third row seating.
5-passenger Rogue Sport designed for conquering everyday urban adventures, includes long list of comfort, convenience and utility features
Dynamic exterior offers sleek front end design with Nissan signature design cues and available 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels
Available Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield technologies include Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Prevention and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
On sale in spring 2017

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is more than an extension of the popular Rogue, while sharing the Rogue name, platform and numerous advanced safety and security features, Rogue Sport stands on its own as a stylish, nimble, fun-to-drive and affordable compact SUV.

The combination of the new Rogue Sport and the immensely popular redesigned 2017 Rogue will appeal to a broad, while we expect Rogue to continue to appeal to owners with young families, Rogue Sport fills a need for singles and couples who want more space and versatility than the average sedan for everyday urban use and social activities.

Powered by a 2L engine, ride and handling have been tuned for US roads, firmer ride for on road.
