Measuring a foot shorter than the familiar Rogue, the Rogue Sport is a less expensive, more compact SUV.
All trims use the same 141-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission.
In our tests, we got 26 mpg overall, which doesn't stand out in the class.
The powertrain is pleasant, though not overly powerful.
The Sport handles responsively and rides in a refined manner, with cabin noise kept to reasonable levels.
We like the easy-to-use controls and infotainment system.
In addition, the Sport offers a 360-degree-view camera, which is helpful for negotiating tight parking spaces.
Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard.
