This year, Nissan will be introducing the brand-new crossover vehicle, the Nissan Rogue Sport, to its lineup. It’s an exciting new car with a lot of features, but what separates it from the original Rogue SUV? Cherry Hill Nissan wants drivers in Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood to know what each vehicle offers before they buy. Read on to learn about the differences between the two cars.
Different in Design
The key difference between the 2017 Nissan Rogue and the Nissan Rogue Sport is the new car’s design. The crossover Sport is a smaller alternative to the full-size SUV Nissan Rogue. The original Nissan Rogue is 184.5 inches in length and 68.1 inches tall, while the Nissan Rogue Sport is 172.4 inches in length and 62.5 inches tall. These measurements lead to smaller interior room, with 61.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity compared to a maximum of 70 cubic feet for the original Rogue. Plus, unlike the Rogue Sport, the Rogue offers third-row seating.
In addition, there are some slight differences within the engine types for both cars. The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport’s engine is a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder with 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. The full-size Rogue has a 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. These differences enhance the Rogue Sport’s status as a vehicle for drivers that live in the city, or for single drivers that want the efficiency of an SUV in a smaller size.
Rogue Sport Trim Levels
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport will have three dedicated trim levels—S, SV, and SL—with each coming in with either all-wheel or front-wheel drive. Much like the original Rogue, the standard options available for each Sport crossover vary with each version. The S model comes with the following:
- Advanced Drive-Assist® Display
- Siri® Eyes Free
- Bluetooth® streaming audio
- Sporty D-shaped steering wheel
- RearView Monitor
The SV has the above features plus:
- Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Ignition
- Dual-zone automatic temperature control
- 6-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar
- 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels
The SL has all options from the SV and adds:
- NissanConnectSM with Navigation, Mobile Apps, and Services
- Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection
- Leather-appointed seats
- 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels
Along with the model-specific features, the Rogue Sport provides a number of exterior design options, including LED Daytime Running Lights and a power moonroof.
