Subcompact crossovers are quickly becoming a dominant force through their market share, taking up more and more consumer purchases each year. Entering into this highly competitive market is the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, and it’s got a lot to recommend it.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is finally hitting the U.S. market after being sold internationally for a few years under a different name. Smaller than the standard Rogue by about a foot in length and shorter by about five inches in height, it’s no mistake that the Nissan Rogue Sport is using its big brother’s name to fuel recognition and give it a boost into the market — the Rogue, after all, is Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in America after it blew past the Altima in 2016 and even surpassed the Toyota Camry to grab the #1 best-selling non-pickup spot this year.
The Rogue Sport offers a lot of what the standard Rogue does, just in a more compact size and with a cheaper MSRP. Fuel economy is also expected to be better overall.
At the end of the day, the fact that Nissan is introducing a smaller version of their best-selling SUV means that subcompact crossovers are definitely in vogue. Young couples, single professionals, and other such consumers are flocking to the subcompact crossover category in what used to be the provenance of the Sentra. And if a flexible, compact, sporty, and affordable vehicle appeals to you, you’re in good company.
