I actually considered the Honda HR-V considering that I have bought hondas in my past. when you compare the Rogue sport to the HR-V the only thing that the HR-V is better than the Rogue Sport is that it has better fuel economy. The above review is foolish. Nissan is a very reliable brand. My family all drive Nissans and have had good experiences with them all. I bought this because it has better technology, more comftorable, more saftey features and a lot more room. NIssan is the better choice.
The Rogue Sport is the only vehicle in the segment that I know of that offers emergency forward braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist. There is more value in the SL trim level as well when compared to the highest EX-L trim level on the Honda HR-V. For the roughly the same price you get all the features of the Honda plus: 19 in alloy wheels, 360 degree camera with moving object detection, dual climate control, and a heated steering wheel. From a more subjective standpoint I think the Rogue Sport looks better cosmetically inside and out.
This car is close but misses on some major points. Nissan should include some features in the mid range SV line like the Honda does in their HR-V. To get heated seat one has to pony up near a grand with the cold weather package. Apple Car Play and a 7 inch screen are missing. Honda adds in some safety feature Nissan omits, such as a blind spot camera when you flip the trun signal for right hand lane change. Under heavier acceleration the the under powered 4 cyc really starts to show. Road noise is excessive at higher speeds on the interstate. Add in the fact that Nissan makes you buy your mats on a 25 K car seems like they are chiseling you for every buck. Nissan !...drop the Juke 4cyc. Turbo on this car and it would improve its performance ( Bigly )..LOL !
I own the Rogue and was hoping the Sport would be an option for my son. So the Sport is smaller, lighter and has a smaller engine with less horsepower and then it gets lower fuel economy than the Rogue? Why did Nissan elect to put a lower efficiency engine in the Sport? Sounds like they are behind. In addition, the Sport is priced more than the more efficient Honda HR-V.
