2017 Nissan Rogue Sport At a Glance (Press Release)

The new Rogue Sport, the latest addition to the expanding Nissan SUV lineup, arrives in dealer showrooms in spring 2017 – joining the recently introduced 2017 Armada and refreshed Pathfinder and Rogue.

Rogue Sport shares many of the design, utility and technology attributes that have made Rogue Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in the United States, but is slightly smaller, sportier and more affordable for younger, urban SUV buyers. These buyers are looking for much more space than a compact sedan, while still seeking the manueverability and fun-to-drive feel that Rogue Sport delivers.

The exterior of the Rogue Sport features a distinctive “emotional geometry” design that combines a progressive, compact body with powerful fender volume and an aggressive, wheel-oriented stance that conveys a feeling of robust agility. In front, the V-motion grille is surrounded by signature Nissan lighting features, including LED Daytime Running Lights, available LED low-beam headlights with High Beam Assist (HBA) and available fog lights.

The rear is highlighted by signature boomerang LED taillights and integrated roof spoiler. Other exterior features include available power sliding moonroof and body-color heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals. Ten exterior colors are offered, led by the bold Monarch Orange and Nitro Lime.

Inside, Rogue Sport provides a comfortable, roomy environment with seating for five and up to 22.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the 2nd row seat (up to 61.1 cu. ft. with 2nd row seat folded down). The interior layout follows Nissan’s “Gliding Wing” design, which projects the sense of an open “wingspan” spreading outward. The result is a spatial symmetry with a sense of togetherness. The premium appearance features two interior colors and available Piano Black finishers with chrome accents.

Among the available comfort and convenience features found in the 2017 Rogue Sport are leather-appointed seating, leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and leather-booted sport-mode shifter, heated front seats, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and available Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System that creates a flat cargo area with the 2nd row seat folded down. When more space is needed for carrying taller or bulkier items, lowering the floor board creates a deeper cargo well.

Available technology includes RearView Monitor, Siri® Eyes Free1, NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch color touch-screen display, Nissan Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, SiriusXM® Travel Link and SiriusXM® Traffic (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant2, Streaming audio via Bluetooth® and Remote Engine Start3.
Also available is the advanced Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD)4 and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)5.

As fitting of the Rogue Sport name, its fun-to-drive performance credentials are achieved by a combination of a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine, Xtronic transmission with Eco Mode switch and a 4-wheel independent suspension. The engine features Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG), Twin CVTC (Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control) on both intake and exhaust, DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated valve lifters, TCV (Tumble Control Valve) and an 11.2:1 compression ratio.

Also standard are Electric Power-assisted Steering (EPS) with Sport mode, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Like Rogue, the new Rogue Sport offers a comprehensive suite of Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield technologies. The list includes Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection6, Blind Spot Warning (BSW)7, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)8, Forward Emergency Braking (FEB)6, Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)9.

The 2017 Rogue Sport is offered in front-wheel and intuitive all-wheel drive configurations, and in three well-equipped grade levels – S, SV and SL. Rogue Sport is assembled in Kyushu, Japan.
