This is also visible in the cargo area, where the 2017 Rogue provides you with 39.3 cubic ft. of room1 that can be expanded to up to 70 cubic ft. of maximum interior cargo volume1, whereas the 2017 Rogue Sport will only offer you 22.9 cubic ft. of space1 and 61.1of maximum interior cargo volume1. Not only that, the Nissan Rogue also has the option to add a third row of seating to expand your passenger capability to seven. So, if you’re looking for something more commodious, the Rogue is definitely the way to go, but if, on the other hand, you seek something more compact and nimble for city driving, the Rogue Sport will definitely fulfill that requirement.
What about power? Here, too, the Nissan Rogue stands ahead, with a 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. The Nissan Rogue Sport, for its part, comes equipped with a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine and cranks out 141 horsepower and 147 lb.-ft. of torque.

For the most part, the Rogue and the Rogue Sport share lots of the same features, however, there are a couple in which the Rogue Sport differs. One of them is the audacious color choice of Nitro Lime, the other is standard approach lighting that welcomes you as you walk towards your vehicle—an especially handy feature to help you get into your vehicle once its dark outside. In the end it comes down to this: If you regularly commute with your family and require more space and capability, perhaps the Rogue is the more logical choice.
