Overview

The Rogue Sport is an alternative to the more roomy Nissan Rogue and the slightly smaller Nissan Kicks. It's a city-efficient crossover that manages congested roads and narrow streets with ease. Despite its smaller dimensions, there's a surprising amount of room for cargo whether you're hauling groceries or supplies for a weekend project. It's a great choice for buyers who want a little extra room, but don't need the larger dimensions and extra seating of a full-size SUV. The Rogue Sport also has a wide range of standard safety and technology features. The rear seats, however, are relatively tight. Also, it provides limited engine power. Handling is good and there's an option for all-wheel drive. The Subaru Crosstrek has more horsepower, higher safety ratings, and an available hybrid. The Hyundai Tucson is more comfortable with a larger rear seat, more powerful engine, and a hybrid option. The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a lower price, but also has less cargo space and less horsepower.

When upgrading to premium trim levels of the 2021 Rogue Sport, you gain a Bose® premium audio system, SiriusXM® satellite radio and Nissan Door to Door Navigation with traffic updates.

A Reinforced Body

Zone Bodies are specially fortified to both rebuffIn order to earn high safety ratings, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport needs to bring more than technology to the table-and that's why it comes with Zone Body Construction.

Zone Bodies are specially fortified to both rebuff and redistribute collision forces. This is achieved through numerous reinforcements, including:

  • Front and Rear Crumple Zones
  • Hood Buckling Creases and Safety Stops
  • Energy-Absorbing Steering Column
  • Pipe-Style Steel Side-Door Guard Beams
  • Slide-Away Brake Pedal Assembly

These cabin reinforcements mean that all passengers, whether they're in the front or the back, will have the protection that they need during an accident.

Side: original test

Rating applies to 2021-22 models built after March 2021

Tested vehicle: 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport S 4-door 4wd

The Nissan Rogue Sport was introduced in the 2017 model year. Beginning with the 2020 model year, knee airbags for the driver and front passenger were added, as well as a newly redesigned passenger frontal airbag. Modifications to the rear passenger safety belts were implemented and rear seat-mounted side torso airbags were added to improve occupant protection.

Further improvements were implemented beginning with 2021 models built after March 2021 including door and side structure reinforcements as well as improvements to the shape of the side curtain airbag to improve occupant protection in side impact crashes. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)

Side ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test of a 2021 Rogue Sport conducted by Nissan as part of side crash test verification.

Modifications to the rear passenger safety belts were implemented and rear seat-mounted side torso airbags were added to improve occupant protection.

Side ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test of a 2020 Rogue Sport conducted by Nissan as part of side crash test verification. Because there were no structural changes, the structure rating is based on this test and an earlier test of a 2017 model conducted by Nissan.
