Nissan Rogue Sport vs Honda HR-V

  • Technology: The Rogue Sport comes standard with over-the-air updates through its NissanConnect Infotainment system and also includes Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility as well as an Advanced Driver-Assist Display. The Honda HR-V has features similar to these, but they are not available on the base trim level.
  • Safety: Through the Nissan Safety Shield 360, the Rogue Sport comes standard with a wide range of driver-assist features including Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Driver Alertness, High Beam Assist, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Blind Spot Warning. Most of these features have equivalents on the Honda Sensing® suite, but this suite only comes available on higher trim levels of the HR-V. As of now, Honda does not have an equivalent Intelligent Driver Assist.
  • Efficiency: The Nissan Rogue and Honda HR-V are well-matched in terms of fuel economy, with practically identical engine specs. However, the full tank of the Rogue Sport holds more fuel with 15 gallons over the 13-gallon capacity of the HR-V, giving the Nissan SUV more long-term fuel economy.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs Subaru Crosstrek

  • Technology: The Rogue Sport comes standard with NissanConnect select service, with over-the-air updates and a Wi-Fi hotspot, both of which are only available on select trims of the Crosstrek. The Rogue Sport also comes standard with speed-sensitive volume control, which is unavailable on the Subaru Crosstrek.
  • Safety: While the Crosstrek has many equivalent driver-assist safety features through the EyeSight suite, its equivalent feature to the Intelligent Driver Alertness, of the Nissan Safety Shield, is only available on select trims. Base trims of the Crosstrek also don't offer Blind Spot Monitoring to help on the highways outside of Great Neck, though it is standard on the Rogue Sport.
  • Interior: When you need lots of space for cargo, the Rogue Sport has got your back, with almost 23 cubic feet of interior cargo volume behind its rear seatbacks. The Crosstrek falls short in this area, despite being an outdoor-friendly crossover, with 20.8 cubic feet of cargo volume.

Nissan Rogue Sport vs Jeep Compass

  • Fuel Efficiency: The Rogue Sport offers plenty of realistic fuel efficiency for a compact crossover traveling up to 25 mpg in cities like Westbury, NY and 32 mpg on the highway. Jeep models are generally not known for their fuel economy and the Compass is unfortunately no exception, traveling up to 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
  • Safety: The Compass does have a number of standard safety features equivalent to those of the Nissan Rogue Sport, more so than many other SUVs of this class. However, the Rogue Sport comes standard with an Easy-Fill Tire Alert, showing you individual tire pressure readings, as well as High Beam Assist and Rear Automatic Braking. None of these safety features are available on the Jeep Compass.
  • Price: The Rogue Sport ultimately offers you more safety and technology for a low starting price, more than $3,000 cheaper than the starting price of the Jeep Compass.

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.
