Nissan’s all-new Rogue Sport is, of course, not all-new at all. Folks in Canada and other world markets have known this sub-compact crossover for years as the Nissan Qashqai. Whatever you want to call it, the Rogue Sport is a “tweener” crossover and in America it’s designed to fill the gap between the smaller Nissan Juke and the larger Nissan Rogue that’s available with a third row.
What about the “Sport” part of the Rogue Sport? Well, here you’re likely to be disappointed. Yes, it does handle a little better than the Rogue, but in this context Nissan has defined “Sport” to simply mean “smaller” so don’t expect improved acceleration or mind-bending handling abilities.
