Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda HR-V

  • Performance: Both SUVs offer one engine, but the Nissan Rogue Sport's 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is more powerful, delivering 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque compared to equal horsepower and only 127 pound-feet of torque in the Honda HR-V that relies on a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine. Honda's SUV doesn't offer an advanced valve timing system that improves performance like Nissan's SUV. Intelligent Control System™ in the Honda HR-V and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive in the Nissan Rogue Sport mirror each other. Both earn 32 miles per gallon on Long Island highways between Westbury and Great Neck.
  • Interior: Westbury families will appreciate the additional interior space of the Nissan Rogue Sport, which offers a total cargo capacity of 61 cubic feet compared to 58 cubic feet in the Honda HR-V. Each five-seat SUV includes an automatic climate control system, but the Nissan Rogue Sport has a dual-zone feature to accommodate passengers in both rows. While Magic Seat® Tall Mode creates four feet of vertical cargo space, the Honda HR-V lacks the cargo-carrying capability of the Nissan Rogue Sport, which features underfloor storage and a Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.
  • Technology: Both SUVs include a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen and Bluetooth®, but the Nissan Rogue Sport does a better job of keeping Glen Cove drivers connected through exclusive features like Nissan Door to Door Navigation, an Advanced Drive-Assist Display, and a Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant.
  • Safety: Greenvale drivers get more peace of mind in Long Island traffic from additional safety features in the Nissan Rogue Sport. The Honda Sensing® safety suite is standard but only gives the Honda HR-V four driver assists. Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert aren't standard in the Honda HR-V like they are in the Nissan Rogue Sport. Nissan Safety Shield 360® suite provides six standard driver assists, and more are available through ProPILOT Assist.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs Subaru Crosstrek

  • Performance: Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive offer similar capability and traction support on Long Island roads. Great Neck motorists get a smoother driving experience through New York City with the Nissan Rogue Sport's Xtronic CVT®. Both SUVs earn over 30 miles per gallon on Long Island freeways. While the Subaru Crosstrek offers two BOXER® flat-4 engines, the base engine produces less torque (145 to 147 pond-feet) than the Nissan Rogue Sport, which delivers superior performance with an advanced valve timing system for its 4-cylinder engine.
  • Interior: With a max cargo volume of 61 cubic feet and a Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System, there's more room for Greenvale families in Nissan's five-seat SUV compared to 55 cubic feet of cargo space in the five-passenger Subaru Crosstrek.
  • Technology: While the Crosstrek offers Subaru STARLINK® Multimedia, only a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen is standard. That's smaller than the Rogue Sport's standard NissanConnect® 7-inch color touchscreen display. Subaru's SUV does offer TomTom® voice-activated navigation that mirrors Nissan Door to Door Navigation in the Rogue Sport. The Crosstrek doesn't offer a Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant.
  • Safety: Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology gives the Crosstrek several safety features, but the Blind Spot Detection system and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert aren't standard. Those safety features are standard in the Rogue Sport, thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield 360® suite. The Crosstrek doesn't offer a suite of intelligent safety features either like the Rogue Sport does with ProPILOT Assist. Some safety features include Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Intelligent Around View® Monitor to assist Glen Cove drivers in Long Island traffic or tight spaces.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs Jeep Compass

  • Performance: While the Jeep Compass achieves 177 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque from a 2.4-liter Tigershark® engine, Jeep's SUV is less fuel-efficient, earning 31 miles per gallon. The MultiAir® 2 valve train system boosts fuel economy in the Compass like the advanced valve timing system does in the Nissan Rogue Sport, which earns 32 highway miles per gallon.
  • Design: The Nissan Rogue Sport is more spacious than the five-seat Jeep Compass, which offers 59 cubic feet of cargo space. Nissan's SUV can expand from 20 to 61 cubic feet of cargo space while offering extra room with the Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System and underfloor storage. The Jeep Compass has smaller 16-inch aluminum wheels, while the Nissan Rogue Sport gives Glen Cove drivers their choice of 17 or 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
  • Technology: The Jeep Compass offers Uconnect® 5 infotainment and a wireless charging pad. The 10.25-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display is similar to the Rogue Sport's Advanced Drive-Assist Display. Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan Connect® Services, and Nissan Door to Door Navigation give Greenvale drivers more connectivity. There's no Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant with Voice Recognition in Jeep's SUV.
  • Safety: Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection and four other safety features are standard in the Jeep Compass, but this SUV doesn't include a suite like the Rogue Sport's Nissan Safety Shield 360®. There's also no High Beam Assist in the Jeep Compass.

Test Drive This New Nissan SUV Around Long Island to See How the Rogue Sport Stands Out

Westbury shoppers will appreciate the affordability of the Nissan Rogue Sport, which has a starting price more than $3,000 less than Jeep's SUV. Nissan's SUV offers more space than all three compact crossovers, along with superior safety and technology features. After test driving the new Nissan Rogue Sport around Long Island, Glen Cove customers can get special financing from the Baron Nissan finance center.

A Higher Standard of "Standard" Equipment

One of the best parts of driving home in the Nissan Rogue Sport is everything it sends home with you.

The 2019 Rogue Sport comes with one of the market's robust standard feature packages. Its diverse equipment includes media amenities like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You'll also find every Rogue Sport model equipped with market-favorite features that run the gamut from remote keyless entry and safety options like blind-spot warnings, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency breaking

If you're hoping to find more, you won't be disappointed by the Rogue Sport's selection of optional features. The Rogue Sport comes available in three unique trims: the Rogue Sport S, Rogue Sport SV, and Rogue Sport SL.

Scattered across its trims are a range of available features including push-button start, dual-zone climate control, remote start, heated mirrors, and built-in navigation. The Safety Shield 360 package likewise provides a selection of active technology that includes everything from automatic high beams to lane departure warnings and more.


An Efficient Powertrain with Options for All-Terrain Performance

One of the key reasons that drivers opt to go home in an SUV is their versatility on and off the road. In many cases, this is an area where subcompact models fall short. The Nissan Rogue Sport works hard to provide the options drivers need to feel like they're behind the wheel of a fully capable SUV.

The Rogue Sport's standard powertrain is a 2.0-liter inline-4 capable of 141 horsepower with 147 pounds-feet of torque. While its output is more modest than something you might find in a larger SUV, the inclusion of options like all-wheel drive provide the extra grit that many drivers want when faces with bad weather and harsh conditions.

If you're looking for good gas mileage too, the Rogue Sport won't let you down. Performing at its best, it can achieve a peak fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon on city roads with 32 miles per gallon on highways.

What's the Difference Between the Nissan Rogue Sport and the Nissan Rogue?

As you look at the Rogue Sport, you might be wondering if the 2019 Rogue might be a better fit for your life on the road. While the Rogue and Rogue Sport share similar designs, the Rogue is a bit on the bigger side.

There are, to be sure, some advantages to this. It's more spacious, has more room for cargo, and offers more powerful performance options. It also has a hybrid powertrain available.

That being said, the Rogue Sport is on equal footing in many ways and also comes with the perks of a smaller price tag. While both the Rogue and Rogue Sport are excellent options, the Rogue Sport might be better suited to drivers who don't need the extra space the Rogue brings to bear.
