2017 Nissan Rogue Sport Preview Feb 8, 2017 by Cedric (Driver Weekly)
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport will arrive this spring and is a brand-new vehicle that is based on the well-loved Rogue but designed for those living in urban areas. Essentially, the Rogue Sport is just as stylish as its namesake, but this compact crossover is smaller for city driving, parking, and improved maneuverability.
Takes You Anywhere
Very rarely do you find an urban vehicle that can do as much as the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport. Its compact size means that you can fit down narrow side streets or squeeze into that tiny parking spot when street parking is the only choice. At the same time, you can enjoy available all-wheel drive that can increase stability in a downpour or heavy snowfall. The ride height and ground clearance mean that you will also glide over potholes with ease and be ready for the rougher roads outside of the city. The Rogue Sport has 141 horsepower on all three trim levels, more than enough grunt for daily driving, and when you want to focus on saving fuel switch to Eco Mode.
Designed for Versatility
The Rogue Sport was designed to mimic the versatility of the larger Nissan Rogue. Because of this, you get the familiar Divide-N-Hide cargo area that features reversible trunk-floor panels that you can adjust in a wide range of configurations. In addition to the crossover’s flat-folding seats and versatile cargo area, you will find numerous nooks and crannies designed to hold everything you need on the go.
Comfortable and Stylish
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport projects a stylish image both inside and out. The exterior has the familiar V-Motion grille, a sporty profile, and clean character lines. There are ten exterior colors to choose from ranging from neutrals like Glacier White or Magnetic Black to truly bold shades, such as Nitro Lime and Monarch Orange. The styling continues inside with premium accents. You will always be comfortable with some help from features like available heated seats.
Modern Technology and More
Just because the 2017 Rogue Sport is smaller than the regular Rogue, that doesn’t mean it lacks any features. You still get all the technology you love from Nissan models, such as Siri Eyes Free and the NissanConnect system with navigation, services, and mobile apps. The Advanced Drive-Assist Display puts all the information you need right between your gauges, so you don’t have to look in multiple spots. Of course, even the safety technology on the Rogue Sport is some of the best available. You can enjoy Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Forward Emergency Braking featuring Pedestrian Detection, the Around View Monitor featuring Moving Object Detection, and more.
A clever downsizing of the Nissan Rogue, the Rogue Sport should be a successful seller for urbanites and younger drivers who need a smaller crossover.
