After its introduction last year the Rogue Sport continues on into 2018 with relatively minor changes. Several of the option packages have been revised with features shuffled around a little bit. A new Premium Package replaces last year's Platinum Package, while a Technology package available on the SV replaces last year's All-Weather package.
The Rogue Sport looks to add to Nissan's best-selling and IIHS safety award-winning Rogue lineup by entering a compact version of the Rogue into the market. The Rogue S is available in three trim levels S, SL and SV. Although the Rogue Sport S has a lack of drivetrain options all trims are given a capable 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and CVT transmission with manual mode that achieves up to 32 mpg on the freeway when in front-wheel drive form.
Making 141 horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque the Rogue's single-engine configuration struggles to win any races yet it still provides an adequate driving experience and solid platform for consumers.
The Rogue Sport S is comes standard with driver friendly features like remote keyless entry, Easy-Fill Tire Alert, Bluetooth integration and LED daytime running lights. The S has an optional Appearance package updating its styling while the SV takes advantage of an available
All-Weather and Premium package paired with all-wheel drive the Rogue can tackle anything you'll likely throw at it.
The mid-level SV trim level adds larger 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, push-button start, a 6 way power adjustable seat and dual climate control. A premium package is available to tap into Nissan's nifty driver assist and safety that includes features like blind-spot detection and all-around view camera.
The top-level SL is very much loaded adding unique 19-inch wheels, heated leather seats and steering wheel, navigation, a 7-inch infotainment system, fog lights, remote start and Nissan's Around-View Monitor bird's-eye-view camera system.
A Premium package only available to the SL adds intelligent cruise control, lane-departure warning and prevention, and emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
