2017 Rogue Sport

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport: A Personality of Its Own

It can sometimes be a tall order for a vehicle to outdo its predecessor, let alone, a model it is trying to reinvent with a different twist and some minor tweaks here and there. In the case of the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, it looks to be more than an extension of its namesake, the 2017 Nissan Rogue, as it tries to establish a unique personality of its own.

 Similar Design, Different Impact

Though it cannot be denied that the 2017 Rogue Sport shares quite a number of similarities with the standard Rogue SUV in terms of design and utility, it does not fail to generate a unique vibe that sets it apart. 

Compared to the Rogue, the Rogue Sport is slightly smaller in dimensions with its wheelbase of 104.2 inches compared to the former's 106.5. Its length is also shorter at 172.4 inches as against the Rogue's 184.5 inches, while the height difference is 62.5 inches to 68.1 inches. The same goes with the headroom, legroom, and hip-room. Despite being a slightly smaller iteration, the size of the SUV gives it a much sportier and sleeker look that is appealing to the younger market in search of a dependable SUV.

Furthermore, it also offers a wide range of exterior features that cannot be found on its bigger brother. It sports LED signature Daytime Running Lights, available fog lights, and a power sliding moonroof. Its overall exterior look leaves a different impact that combines stylish, sporty, and versatility.

What's Really Inside

A good-looking SUV is great, but how it performs and how it makes the driving and riding experience a smooth one matters more. The 2017 Rogue Sport is powered by a 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It is able to perform at 141hp at 6,000rpm and bolt out 147 lb-ft at 4,400 rpm. 

When it comes to its suspension, it is equipped with independent front strut w/coil springs and stabilizer bar, an independent rear multi-link w/stabilizer bar, and Twin-tube shock absorbers. As for its steering prowess, it boasts of an Electric Power-assisted Steering (EPS) feature, while 4-wheel vented disc brakes with ABS, Electronic Brake force Distribution, and Brake Assist take care of those crucial sudden stops.

As far as the interior features go, the Rogue Sport has a lot in store despite being the smaller version of the Rogue. Aside from a cargo area of up to 22.9 cubic feet, it provides remarkable comfort for the driver and all of the passengers. It comes with heated and leather-appointed seating for comfort and style, a heated steering wheel, and a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system that will fill the vehicle with crisp sounds and remarkable listening enjoyment during long trips.

Also available is the Standard Siri® Eyes Free, remote engine start for easy starting, and Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) to give you a virtual 360 birds-eye view of the SUV.

Safety is a Must

Lastly, the Rogue Sport does not compromise safety as it is packed with key features like an Intelligent Cruise Control, Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Blind Spot Warning, and high beam headlights.

Is it better than the 2017 Rogue? It could be, but the more important thing to consider is that it is its own SUV, with its unique style and character. And SUV lovers will only get to experience the difference once they buckle up and hit the road.
