2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2017 Nissan Rogue

Bigger is not necessarily better. Smaller is not necessarily better, either. Life is not a "one size fits all" endeavor. Even in the world of crossover SUVs, which are already happy mediums between full-size SUVs and smaller sedans or coupes, not every model fits every situation. The Nissan Rogue, which is one of the most popular vehicles in the entire Nissan lineup, offers plenty of versatility, capability, and even efficiency to make it a great option for people of all walks of life. Nissan wanted to go a step farther by taking that foundation and modifying it to make it easier to navigate hectic urban settings. Enter the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport. How do these vehicles differ? Let's take a look at a comparison between the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport and the 2017 Nissan Rogue.

The primary differences between these models is size. But while the Rogue Sport is physically smaller, that does not mean it doesn't carry the same spirit of adventure its older sibling has.

The original 2017 Rogue also comes standard with RearView Monitor while offering additional standard features as Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which are optional features on the top two trim levels of the Rogue Sport.
