Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2018 Nissan Rogue Sport OVERVIEW

Nissan’s response to the burgeoning compact crossover market, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is a practical choice. It may not be the most exciting car, but it benefits from features and technology stolen from its larger sibling. Still, the Rogue Sport faces stiff competition from makers like Honda and Mazda.

What's New for 2018

New in 2017, the Rogue Sport returns mechanically unchanged for another year. The only changes are in the packages: the SV All-Weather and Premium Packages have been folded together and rebranded as the SV Technology Package, and the SL Platinum Package has been renamed the SL Premium Package.

Choosing Your Nissan Rogue Sport

The Rogue Sport is shorter than the full-size Rogue, so there’s no option for a third row of seats. All Rogue Sports are powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque. The EPA estimates mileage up to 25 mpg city, 32 highway, and 28 combined, which is (surprisingly) less efficient than the larger Rogue. All-wheel drive is available as an option on all trims for $1,350 and drops fuel economy to 24 city, 30 highway, and 27 combined mpg.

Cargo capacity is respectable at 22.9 cubic feet behind the second row and up to 61.1 cu. ft. with the seats folded down. All Rogue Sports also come with tech features like a rearview camera and extended Apple's Siri eyes-free voice controls (provided you're carrying a compatible iPhone that's connected via Bluetooth).

Buyers can choose from three available trims: S, SV, and SL.

S

The Rogue Sport S is the cheapest of the bunch, starting at $22,615 (for a front-wheel drive unit) after a destination fee $975. It rolls on basic 16-inch steel wheels, although 17-inch alloys are an option. They come as the Appearance Package for an extra $570. There’s a basic 5-inch color display, and the sound system is a simple four-speaker unit. Keyless entry is also standard, but the rest of the Rogue Sport S is utilitarian.

There are a few accessories like chrome accents, splash guards, or (inexplicably) an actual tent, but otherwise buyers don’t have any other decisions to make about their spec.

SV

Priced at $24,215, the Rogue Sport SV adds a good deal of comfort and tech. The 17-inch wheels are standard, as are smart headlights, an upgraded six-speaker audio system, and dual-zone automatic climate control. On the exterior, the SV boasts LED turn signal indicators and a set of roof rails.

Two packages are available as add-ons, starting with the All-Weather Package at $920, which adds a remote start system, a heated leather steering wheel, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped shift knob. Alternatively, buyers can add the $2,420 Technology Package, which includes all the features of the Technology Package plus a seven-inch touchscreen complete with a navigation system and voice controls, along with some useful safety technologies like rear cross traffic alerts, blind-spot monitoring, and a parking assist monitor.

SL

Nissan’s top-of-the-line trim starts at $27,265. The Rogue Sport SL rolls on 19-inch alloy wheels and comes standard with all the features included in the SV Technology Package except the safety tech.

For those features, buyers will have to add the Premium Package for $2,850. In addition to those safety boosts, the Premium Package adds LED headlights, lane-departure warning, pedestrian detection with automatic emergency braking, and a power glass moonroof.

CarsDirect Tip

Stick to the SV trim if you’re considering the Rogue Sport. The safety features of the SL are nice, but they bump the price into the range of full-fledged SUVs. As you’d expect from Nissan, the Rogue Sport is sensible and solid, but make sure you also check out the cheap and competent Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-3.
