happy to have chosen the Nissan Rogue Spot
Margaret, 6/3/2018
This is a good looking SUV inside and out. Love its responsiveness and maneuverability. Plenty of room for passengers in the back seat and a good sized cargo space that includes small storage areas within it to hold various items including the first aid kit that comes with the car!
this car rocks

Solid gas mileage. Love the remote start. AWD is amazing in the snow. Great looks. Comfy seating in the front.
Sleek little sport
Sleek little sport, 6/8/2018
We have only owned the 2018 Rogue Sport for 3 weeks. We have found everything as expected. It was purchased for a run around town suv as we have a larger suv for family time, trips and picking up large purchases. The Rouge can perform the same duties in a smaller package. Would have loved a power tailgate and power passenger seat but was not offered. Nice that it looks like a sleek suv than a square box.
Worse warranty ever
Khady Diallo, 6/29/2018
My windshield cracked for a reason that I totally don't know. My Nissan Rogue is only two months old. I took the car to the dealership and they said that something might have hit it. My thing is that for a car that is supposed to be so good it should take more that a pebble (the dealership said it could be that) to crack a window. Obviously it would not be cover by warranty . I am really unsatisfied with the Nissan and needless to say that this would be my last one . Lynnes Nissan in Bloomfield New Jersey offered to help with some of the charges and that has been the only positive thing in this whole ordeal . I guess I should have gotten another Toyota. If a windshield could crack just like that anything else could happen. Talk about safety!

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. the competition

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Honda HR-V

Like the Rogue Sport, the HR-V is a practical urban runabout. It has large cargo capacity and innovative seat configurations for improved cargo flexibility. Also like the Nissan, the HR-V is one of the slowest models in this class. The HR-V, however, doesn't offer advanced safety features such as adaptive cruise control or lane departure warning.

Compare Nissan Rogue Sport & Honda HR-V features

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Mazda CX-3

"Sport" may be part of this Rogue's name, but it's anything but. The CX-3 is the real sport model in this class, with sharp and responsive handling and relatively speedier acceleration. Cabin comfort is another CX-3 strength, up front at least. A cramped back seat and below-average cargo capacity make it less ideal if utility and rear passenger comfort are priorities.

Compare Nissan Rogue Sport & Mazda CX-3 features

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Toyota C-HR

The Rogue Sport certainly doesn't look as flamboyant as the all-new C-HR, but both cars are equally slow. Expect more than 10 seconds to reach 60 mph from a standstill. But otherwise, this Toyota is a sporty and capable small crossover with a surprisingly roomy interior for passengers. But the C-HR offers a lot less cargo capacity than the Rogue Sport.

More about the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport

Part of a relatively new but increasingly popular segment of compact crossovers, the 2018 Rogue Sport is a smaller version of the standard Rogue. The Rogue Sport has its strengths, but it also faces tough competition in what has quickly become a very competitive class.

Like its larger compact crossover counterpart, the Rogue Sport comes in three simple trim levels: S, SV and SL. Each has varying degrees of tech and safety equipment and added creature comforts. While the base-level S trim isn't exactly bare-bones, you shouldn't expect much in the way of luxury. It comes with 16-inch steel wheels, cloth upholstery, manual seat adjustments and a small 5-inch touchscreen. It's the value model and a good start if you're looking to get into a spacious hatchback-size crossover without spending too much money. It's worth noting the Rogue Sport only offers one engine, and all-wheel drive is available on every trim level so you won't be missing out on any extra performance at the bottom of the trim-level ladder.

Next up is the SV trim, which is our recommendation thanks to its generous standard equipment and abundant available options. Standard features on the SV include bigger alloy wheels, automatic headlights, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a six-way power driver's seat and a six-speaker audio system. It's not the most abundantly equipped SUV on the market, but the SV certainly has a respectable number of features. You can also purchase packages that add most of the SL's equipment.

Finally, at the top of the ladder is the SL trim, where all the sought-after safety gear comes into play. A surround-view camera system, NissanConnect emergency and convenience telematics, Siri Eyes Free iPhone control, and a navigation system are all standard on the SL. And if you so desire, you can get items such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control with forward collision mitigation and pedestrian detection, as well as lane departure warning and lane keeping assist. Most of the Rogue Sport's optional safety equipment is rare in this segment, which certainly helps it stand out.

Unfortunately, the Rogue Sport isn't as economical as some competitors. Its base price is competitive, but relative equipment levels and fuel economy are below average. If you consider the Rogue Sport against larger, more expensive crossovers that have less available safety equipment, then the pricing starts to make a bit more sense.

The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport certainly has its virtues. A quiet ride, excellent seats in the SL trim, and impressive cargo space all keep it competitive. Whatever compact crossover catches your eye, be sure to check them all out on Edmunds and we'll help you find the perfect one.
