2019 Nissan Rogue Sport Review
Looking for something roomier than a sedan, but not ready to drive a midsize SUV? The compact Rogue Sport was designed just for you. Think of it as the Goldilocks of crossovers: It’s just the right size for the streets of Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood.
Plus, it comes standard with some impressive features. Read all about it in this 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport review from Cherry Hill Nissan.
Nissan Rogue Sport Performance
The 2019 Nissan Rogue sport comes with a small but mighty four-cylinder engine, which provides 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. Features like direct fuel injection and DLC (diamond-like carbon) coated valve lifters help this 2.0L engine achieve an impressive MPG rating.
In fact, models with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive get an EPA-estimated 24 MPG city/30 MPG highway.* This all-wheel drivetrain reduces wheel slippage when that light turns green and you punch the gas. Once you reach a coasting speed, it sends all its power to the front wheels to improve fuel economy.
As soon as you reach slippery conditions or a tight bend in the road, four-wheel drive kicks back on to keep you in control. These subtle transfers of power happen faster than you can blink your eyes.
If you’re more interested in an efficient drive, you can opt for a front-wheel drive model. These get slightly higher fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city/32 MPG highway.*
Nissan Rogue Sport Interior
Looking for something with more interior space than a sedan? The compact Rogue Sport is a great choice for drivers who are new to the world of SUVs. It doesn’t take up as much room on the road as its cousin, the Rogue. This makes it easier to handle, especially in urban settings.
Plus, it offers that cargo space you’re craving. There’s an impressive 22.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, so you can transport more instruments, camping equipment, or sports gear. Need even more space? Fold those rear seats flat to get 61.1 cubic feet of cargo space.
Plenty of features make it even easier to secure that cargo. The standard Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System features a panel that can split the cargo area into smaller compartments, depending on what the situation calls for. Meanwhile, six luggage hooks and a cargo cover add even more convenience.
You’ll also be able to take advantage of a lot of high-tech features from inside the 2019 Rogue Sport. Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio are all standard, making it easy to connect to your choice of media.
A Rear Door Alert is also standard across trim levels. If you’re in a rush, you might forget something in your backseat. The Rogue Sport pays attention to when you open and close the back door. If it thinks you left something behind, it’ll remind you with a series of alerts.
Nissan Rogue Sport Configurations
This compact crossover is available in three trim levels: S, SV, and SL. Each one is available with your choice of front- or all-wheel drive, making a total of six available Nissan Rogue Sport configurations.
As you’ve seen above, the base model—Nissan Rogue Sport S—comes standard with an impressive array of features. An upgrade to SV adds more driver-assistive technologies, like:
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Intelligent Lane Intervention
- Rear Automatic Braking
This model also comes with Intelligent Auto Headlights. When it starts to get dark out, you enter a tunnel, or your windshield wipers are on, the Rogue Sport headlights automatically turn on to improve visibility.
The SL, meanwhile, offers a more luxurious ride. Its seats get upgraded from cloth to leather, and the front seats are heated. Quickly thaw your hands from the winter chill by placing them on the leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel. Plus, features like door-to-door navigation and an Intelligent Around View® Monitor make it even easier to get where you’re going.
