2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

Pros: Generous passenger and cargo room for the class; good control layout; nicely finished interior

Cons: Leisurely acceleration; so-so EPA fuel-economy ratings

CG Says: The 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport gains ProPILOT Assist, a driver-assist system that pairs adaptive cruise control functionality with automatic lane-centering steering assist, as standard equipment on topline SL trim and optional on SV. The Rogue Sport is a subcompact crossover that slots between Nissan’s Rogue and their subcompact crossover Kicks; it’s a foot shorter than Rogue and 3 inches longer than Kicks. Though introduced to the American market in 2017, the Rogue Sport has been sold in several other countries since 2014 as the Qashqai. And though it shares a first name and some styling cues with the Rogue, the Rogue Sport is not just a shorter version of its big brother—it has a unique platform and a smaller engine. A 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four cylinder paired with a CVT automatic transmission is the sole powertrain. S, SV, and SL trim levels are available, all with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Available safety features include a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning and emergency braking, lane-departure warning and mitigation, and pedestrian detection. Other available features include keyless access and starting, heated steering wheel, surround-view cameras, LED headlights, and adaptive cruise control. The Rogue Sport is on the large side for a subcompact SUV and therefore has good interior and cargo room for the class. The available Divide-N-Hide Cargo System makes the most of the cargo area. Acceleration is only adequate, but Rogue Sport has a well-controlled ride and fine handling. It’s definitely worth a look if you’re in the market for a small SUV.
