Article by Christian A., on April 26, 2017

Nissan revealed that the new 2017 Rogue Sport crossover will be priced in the U.S. market at $21,420. Specifically, this is for the front-wheel drive version of the Rogue Sport S. Expected to go on sale across the U.S. at authorized dealers, it joins the Rogue and helps expand the brand’s SUV and crossover range. Based on first quarter 2017 sales, the Rogue is presently the best-selling compact SUV in the U.S.

According to Nissan, the Rogue Sport is designed mainly for young couples as well as customers who want a vehicle that has the versatility offered by a crossover but could provide the needed space. In addition, this vehicle should also have the handling and the sporty feel that is similar to a small sedan.

Other pricing details include the Rogue Sport SV at $23,020, and the Rogue Sport SL at $26,070. These two are like the Rogue Sport S which has front-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive versions meanwhile will come at $22,770 for the S, $24,370 for the SV, and $27,420 for the SL. Destination and Handling meanwhile is at $960.

In general, the Rogue Sport has a number of qualities that are similar to the Rogue. The difference though is that it is more athletic and a bit smaller. Further, the Rogue Sport is more affordable compared to the Rogue, which makes it appealing to a younger demographic of customers. These are customers who want a vehicle that has more space compared to a compact sedan but is fun-to-drive and has that maneuverability.

Indeed, aside from being able to have a comfortable atmosphere, the Rogue Sport can seat a maximum of five people. The cargo space at the back of the second row seat offers 22.9 cubic feet but this can be increased to 61.1 cubic feet if the seats in the second row are folded down. As if to prove why it carries the Sport name, this model is powered with the inline 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC 2.0-liter engine capable of 141 hp. This is paired with the Xtronic transmission having the Eco Mode switch as well as the 4-wheel independent suspension.

Like the base model, the Rogue Sport is fitted with the brand’s very own Intelligent Safety Shield technologies. Examples of this include the Blind Spot Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. It will also have the Lane Departure Prevention and Lane Departure Warning.

About the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport
The new Rogue Sport shares many of the design, utility and technology attributes that have made Rogue Nissan's best-selling vehicle in the United States. It is slightly smaller, sportier and more affordable than Rogue and designed for younger, urban SUV buyers.

The exterior of the Rogue Sport features a distinctive "emotional geometry" design that combines a progressive, compact body with powerful fender volume and an aggressive, wheel-oriented stance that conveys a feeling of robust agility.

Among the available comfort and convenience features are leather-appointed seating, heated front seats, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and available Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System, RearView Monitor, Siri® Eyes Free1, NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch color touch-screen display and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant2.
