2018 Nissan Rogue Sport review

The new version of Nissan’s top-selling vehicle is now available at Hoffman Estates Nissan dealer lots: The Nissan Rogue Sport reigns supreme as the top-selling passenger vehicle in America and now the 2018 model is here and ready for you.


“The new Rogue Sport is a perfect addition to the red hot Rogue lineup,” Michael Bunce, vice president of product planning for Nissan North America Inc., said in a recent statement. “With Rogue Sport’s slightly smaller dimensions and sporty maneuverability, it’s ideal for singles or couples without kids–or empty nesters–who want a sportier vehicle and can live with a little less cargo capacity than the current Rogue offers.”


The Rogue Sport may be slightly scaled down in size, but it more than makes up for its dimensions with its larger-than-life capabilities. A favorite among Nissan dealers, fans, critics, and the staff at Woodfield Nissan, the new Nissan Rogue Sport’s compact size may be just what you’re looking for. The vehicle is one foot shorter and five inches lower than the Rogue and features a slightly smaller passenger cabin–96 cubic feet of volume in the Sport compared to 106 cubic feet for the standard Rogue.


“It gives consumers another option,” Bunce said. “If they think the Rogue is just a little too big for them, often they get into the Rogue Sport and it’s just perfect.”


The vehicle’s smaller size is certainly an advantage when it comes to powertrain capabilities–out of all of our current Nissan models for sale, the Nissan Rogue Sport is the zippiest. The vehicle utilizes a smaller four-cylinder engine for a more efficient output. The Sport comes standard with a 2.0-liter 141-horsepower engine compared to the 2.5-liter 170-horsepower four-cylinder in the Rogue. The Sport is available with either front- or all-wheel drive.


Noted for its maneuverability and smooth ride, the Nissan Rogue Sport is the perfect marriage of style and compact power. But the vehicle also comes with a range of awesome tech and safety enhancements, including NissanConnect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, a Standard Motion-Activated Liftgate, standard Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.


The new Rogue Sport is even available with a fresh new exterior package: The Midnight Edition Package. Opt for this special appearance package and you’ll get black outside mirror caps, black front and rear fascia accents, a black V-motion grille, black roof rails, black 17-inch SV aluminum alloy wheels and more.
