People shopping this segment want something easy to drive, easy to park and essentially unobtrusive, and the Rogue Sport is all those things. With its compact dimensions and decent sightlines, the 360-degree top-down reverse camera makes parking ridiculously painless.
I tend to dislike the use of model-name extensions like “Sport,” and in this case Rogue Light probably would have been a better call, as it’s similar to its big bro in many ways and there isn’t a lot of sport going on here. Styling changes to the front and rear fascias of the Sport are so subtle that it takes a long look to tell the two Rogues apart, though the Rogue Sport does appear more athletic in profile. Interior bits, including the dash, steering wheel, and seats are virtually identical as well.
The Rogue Sport interior will be very familiar to you if you have been in a Nissan recently. It’s basically the same interior as in its bigger brother – the 2017 Rogue.
