There are many formulas for making a successful vehicle weigh in even heavier on the sales scales, but Nissan’s approach stands out as unusual: take that bestseller, run it through the washer, full hot, and shrink it.
The Rogue is Nissan’s bestseller, and ranks in the top five among compact crossover SUVs, one of the most popular segments in autodom. And when the new Sport version rolls into showrooms next spring, Nissan expects the Rogue’s tally to increase incrementally.
Of course, that depends on how we keep score. The Sport may carry the Rogue name and is built on a modified Rogue platform, but it’s a subcompact, and gives Nissan a more conventional competitor for the likes of the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Chevy Trax, and Kia Soul, to name just a few. (Nissan’s peppy little Juke falls into the same general category, but can hardly be called conventional.)
Nissan bills the junior Rogue as “right sized.” This is not to suggest that the size of the standard Rogue is wrong. It’s meant to portray the subcompact newcomer as appropriate for young urban couples with no kids.

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport has just debuted at the Detroit Auto Show as a new compact crossover to slot in between the Juke and Rogue. Offered as the Nissan Qashqai in other parts of the world, this is the first time the crossover will be offered in North America to bolster Nissan’s SUV portfolio. Despite its shared name, platform, similar style and features, the Japanese automaker assures the Nissan Rogue Sport stands on its own as a unique model. Nissan says the new crossover is a “stylish, nimble, fun-to-drive and affordable compact SUV” that is aimed at young couples and single people who live in the city. In an interesting twist, the new SUV will continue to be called the Nissan Qashqai (pronounced cash-kai) when it arrives in Canada, although most other aspects of the vehicle will be the same as the American model. A few exceptions are that the Canadian Qashqai will come standard with heated seats and a six-speed manual transmission, where the U.S.-bound Rogue Sport only gets a CVT and optional cold weather equipment. With a wheelbase that is 2.3 inches shorter and an overall length that is 12.1 inches shorter than the Rogue, the Sport model is “more...

This Nissan SUV is called the Qashqai everywhere else in the world, but good luck getting Americans to say that properly when half the country still hasn't learned how to say "fajita." Borrowing part of a name from an already popular SUV seems like a good idea — it worked for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, didn't it? Thus, the new 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport was born, and you can see it at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

It's not a bad idea, given that the Rogue Sport is built on the same overall platform as the larger Rogue, but with more than 2 inches chopped out of the wheelbase. That shorter length is noticeable inside, but only in the backseat where legroom is considerably tighter than the unusually spacious Rogue.
Up front, the Rogue Sport shares a lot of its interior with the Rogue, and that's a good thing. Option it up to the SL trim to get some nice leather, piano-black trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel that feels chunky and substantial.

Nissan’s Qashqai, long the brand’s bestseller in Western Europe, finally is coming to North America as the Rogue Sport to help fill out the brand’s crossover and sport/utility lineup. In fact, the 2017 Rogue Sport, which was unveiled at the 2017 Detroit auto show, is virtually unchanged from the aforementioned Qashqai.
Specifically, the Nissan Rogue Sport is 172.4 inches overall, on a 104.2-inch wheelbase, and is 62.4 inches wide and the AWD version is 63.3-inches tall. Per Michael Bunce, Nissan North America’s vice president for product planning, the Rogue Sport is 12-inches shorter overall, 0.4-inch less-tall, and has a two-inch shorter wheelbase than the Rogue.
Nissan considers both the Rogue, which is available in a three-row configuration in some trim levels, and the two-row-only Rogue Sport as compact crossover/utilities, Bunce says. Sales of the Sport will be included in overall Rogue sales, making it likely to pass the CR-V for the number-one spot in the segment.

For 2017 the Nissan Rogue not only received a refresh and a [u]new hybrid powertrain , it gets a little brother in the guise of the five-passenger Rogue Sport. In truth, this is an imported Qashqai , made legal and spiffy for our shores. Built on the Renault-Nissan common modular family architecture, the Rogue Sport's wheelbase is just 2.3 inches shorter than the Rogue's; however, the Rogue Sport's overall length shrinks by 12.1 inches versus the larger SUV, and is three inches more compact than the Versa Sedan. Stance doesn't suffer, the Rogue Sport is almost as wide as the midsized Rogue, with bodywork accentuated by plentiful sheetmetal creases.
The design takes a chunk out of rear cargo space, the Rogue Sport is able to swallow 22.9 cubic feet of shopping with the second-row seats up - about 17 cubic feet less than in the Rogue. Fold the second row down and that gap shrinks, with 61.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity in the Rogue Sport, just nine fewer cubic feet than in the Rogue.

Although the name may be close to the same, what you're looking at is a very different car than the Nissan Rogue.
It's the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, and for once, it's derivative of the extremely popular crossover segment that makes sense.
Smaller, shorter and ahem probably slower, than the Nissan Rogue that helped give it its name, the Rogue Sport is all new for 2017 and adds to Nissan's growing lineup of crossovers.
First, let's go over the numbers. The Rogue Sport sits almost directly in between the Juke and the Rogue in terms of size. It's roughly the size of a Hyundai Tucson, which is just the right size for small couples or empty-nesters with two people and bigger plans.
Behind the second row, there's 22.9 cubic feet a lot of which is vertical space which isn't much for a crossover and a third less than you'd find in a regular Rogue. Fold the rear seats down, and that space builds to more than 60 cubes, which is near the size of its bigger brother, and impressive for a small crossover.

The United States is a diverse country of nearly 325 million people, but Americans are nonetheless sometimes broadly stereotyped as being a bit boorish, or at least less cultured than, say, some Europeans or Canadians. So when Nissan revealed it was bringing the Qashqai compact SUV to the U.S. market while at the same time renaming the car the Rogue Sport here, some casual observers wondered if maybe Nissan felt “Qashqai” (pronounced KASH-kay) was too much of a mouthful for Americans.
Christian Meunier, Nissan North America’s senior vice president of sales and marketing, said the decision had more to do with the slightly larger Nissan Rogue’s growing success in the U.S. market than with concern that Americans might stumble over nomenclature. Meunier was with Nissan in Europe about a decade ago, and he saw the development of the compact Qashqai up close. The little crossover’s purpose was to find a way to break through and capture a chunk of the compact-car market that had been dominated by the Volkswagen Golf in much of Europe.

After posting its best sales year of all time and jumping the Altima as the brand’s top seller, Nissan is doing the only logical thing there is to do with the Rogue: make it smaller.
The Rogue Sport's sophisticated headlight design features LED signature daytime running lights, halogen headlights with an auto off function, and available fog lights.
Nissan will add a compact version of the crossover SUV, dubbed the Rogue Sport, to its 2017 model year lineup, aiming to attract young buyers with active lifestyles, or, in other words, millennials. I know, big shocker that Nissan would make a play for this demographic, right?
Pandering notwithstanding, the Rogue Sport is actually more or less a reworked version of the Nissan Qashqai, a compact crossover sold in Japan, Australia and Europe since 2006. Considering the name Qashqai would puzzle the average U.S. car buyer and the name Rogue is associated with a popular vehicle (and Star Wars film) here in the states, I’d say Nissan made the right choice by switching it up.

Nissan is moving to fill a gap in its sport-utility vehicle line up by launching the Rogue Sport, a compact crossover that will compete in one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. auto market.
The Japanese automaker showed off the 2018 Rogue Sport at the start of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The Rogue Sport will be the U.S. version of the Nissan Qashqai, which is currently sold in Europe, where it is the brand’s most popular model.
Nissan is using the Rogue Sport nameplate in the U.S. to capitalize on the success of the Rogue, the crossover’s larger sibling.
“We have built tremendous equity in the Rogue brand,” said Michael Bunce, vice president of product planning for Nissan North America.
Nissan sold nearly 330,000 Rogues in 2016, a 14.9 percent gain over 2015, according to Autodata Corp., an industry research firm. It outsold Nissan’s Altima and Sentra sedans for the first time. Nissan sold more than 40,000 Rogues in December alone, making it the fourth-most popular vehicle of any kind in the U.S. that month. Only the Ford F-Series, Chevrolet Silverado and Ram pickup trucks sold more.

Hello, welcome to our car website. Thank you for clicking. Here is the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport, which debuted 01/09/2017 at the Detroit Auto Show.
Make no mistake that I am writing about the Nissan Rogue Sport purely for SEO reasons in hopes that I will drive traffic, or “clicks,” to our website. Personally, I feel nothing but a deep, persistent ambivalence toward the vehicle itself.
The Nissan Rogue Sport is like a Rogue but smaller, closer to the original Rogue, because the newer Rogue got bigger. Its wheelbase is 2.3-inches shorter and its length is 12.1-inches shorter than the current Rogue.
If you are an auto enthusiast and do not know what I am talking about, that is fine; the Rogue is surely an adequate vehicle for normal people who like to buy cars they see on commercials during football using seasonal discounts.
Have you shared this article on Facebook yet? I do hope we get some Google traffic out of it.
The Rogue Sport is powered by a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter engine mated to a continuously variable transmission, meaning the only excitement you can have in it will end in your certain death afterward.
