What makes the Nissan Rogue Sport 'sporty'?

The Nissan Rogue Sport delivers in every area, taking care of everything that you need for an active day to day commuting experience. All the models across the various trim levels are compatible with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 technology, and the LED daytime running lamps used in the Rogue Sport makes transitioning between bright to dim lighting conditions an easy and comfortable experience. The Nissan Rogue Sport also comes packed with infotainment features and smartphone integration. All the models have a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and Nissan has brought back their expertise when it comes to car seat design in the Nissan Rogue Sport as well!

You can connect your smart devices to your car using Bluetooth, charge your devices using the available USB ports, and make use of Android Auto and Apple Car Play. Starting from $24,335, the Nissan Rogue Sport is available across three trim levels - the S base level, the SV, and SL. Out of these three, the 2020 Nissan Rogue SV will give you the most bang for your buck, and it comes loaded with optional add-ons that can elevate your driving experience any day.

All the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport models use the front-wheel-drive drivetrain, but you can upgrade to all-wheel drive as well. With FWD, your MPG is 25 within city limits, 32 on highways, and 28 in combined cycles. If you choose to upgrade your car to an AWD drivetrain, then your MPG will be 24 within city limits, 30 on highways, and 27 in combined cycles. The engine used in the Nissan Rogue Sport is a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine with Continuously Variable Transmission. This gives you 141 Horsepower and 147 lb-ft of torque. So, while the Nissan Rogue Sport is not a powerhouse in the technical sense of the term, it does, in fact, redefine what it means to be sporty by being the perfect companion to anyone who leads an active, sporty lifestyle.
