2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2017 Nissan Rogue
Have you heard? Nissan has added another versatile crossover model to its lineup: the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport. This is not a trim of the Rogue, but rather, a completely new model that uses the foundation set by the original Rogue and condenses it to better fit the hustle and bustle of busy cities. Remember your last trip into downtown Anywhere, having to try to squeeze into a tight parking spot, trying to drive down an unusually narrow street. It can be a bit difficult in a bigger vehicle. Enter the Rogue Sport. The Rogue has a lot to offer drivers from all walks of life, so just taking that and making it a little more compact makes it even more ideal for urban living. How exactly do these two vehicles differ? Let's look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs the 2017 Nissan Rogue.
As the chart below indicates, the main differences are in size. Even though the Rogue Sport is smaller in stature, it still has plenty of spirit and capability.
|2017 Nissan Rogue Sport||vs||2017 Nissan Rogue|
|172.4 Inches||Length||184.5 Inches|
|61.1 Cubic Feet||Maximum Cargo Capacity||70 Cubic Feet|
|25/32 City/Hwy MPG||Base Fuel Economy||26/33 City/Hwy MPG|
Fit for the daily grind and a weekend excursion
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is shorter in height and length than the 2017 Nissan Rogue. It is also a smidge narrower, standing at 72.3 inches wide compared to the Rogue's 72.4 inches. In the original Rogue, you have the option to purchase the Family Package to expand the seating to seven people, but that option is not available with the Rogue Sport.
Even with the smaller size, you are still getting 61.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity when the rear seats are folded down. That is plenty of room for items you may need to cart along with you in the city as well as equipment you may want to bring for a weekend camping trip at a moment's notice. The Rogue Sport is equipped with a 141-horsepower engine, while the Rogue has a 170-horsepower engine under the hood. Both models are almost identiccal in fuel efficiency, however, meaning your wallet will enjoy the fuel economy of either model.
Responsive handling and a comfortable interior also make the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport a good option for city dwellers. Either way, though, each vehicle has a lot to offer just about anyone, so the choice is yours!
