Like the idea of a Nissan Rogue, but wanting something smaller and easier on the pocketbook? Nissan is banking a starting price of $22,380 on it with the new 2017 Rogue Sport.
The bonnet holds what Nissan dubs a Sport worthy 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4. That’s a 0.5-liter difference to the Rogue’s standard 2.5-liter. It also gets a drop in power from the big sibling, with a 141-horsepower rating. Round it all out with Nissan’s Xtronic transmission with an eco mode.
Behind the rear seats, there is room for 16 cabin carry-on suitcases. Fold the seats down to more than double that space. Comparing it to the full-size Rogue, it gives you about half as much storage behind the second-row seat. However, unlike the Rogue, the Rogue Sport doesn’t offer a third-row option. Keep that in mind when you’re considering size. Behind the front row, with all seats folded down, the Sport only offers a suitcase and a half less than the standard Rogue.
