2018 Nissan Rogue Sport Introduction

The Nissan Rogue Sport is like the Nissan Rogue, which is a good thing, only it’s a foot smaller, and it’s less powerful. Every Sport comes with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder making a weak 141 horsepower, mated to a CVT that’s slow but at least not intrusive. It’s front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive available.

It’s comfortable enough for two riders in front, and even for two more in the rear, but a fifth passenger won’t like it. The infotainment display is above average. Rivals include the Mazda CX-3, Chevrolet Trax, and Toyota CH-R.

Fuel mileage is 25 miles per gallon city, 32 highway, and 28 combined with front-wheel drive; or 27 mpg combined with awd. That’s about the same as its rivals.

Beginning mid-year, Nissan began calling the Sport a 2018-and-a-half model, with automatic emergency braking added as standard equipment. It hasn’t been crash-tested yet.
