Everything You Need to Know About the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport
Nissan updated its Rogue Sport model for 2020 with some trim level revisions, styling modifications, the addition of two new paint colors — Monarch Orange Metallic and Nitro Lime Metallic, option packages, and some styling modifications. Some of the styling changes include a new front bumper and grille, aggressive exterior LED lighting, LED signature daytime running lights, and a new hood. Additionally, all Rogue Sport vehicles, regardless of trim, come standard with Nissan’s Safety Shield 360, the brand’s group of advanced safety features. Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 includes driver-assistance technologies such as lane departure warnings, automatic high beams, rear automatic braking, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The 2020 Rogue Sport is available in three different trims — S, SV, and SL — with either front-wheel or optional all-wheel-drive. Pricing for the base-tier S trim starts at $24,335 (including the destination fee), while the all-wheel-drive top-tier SL trim has a base price of $30,895 (including the destination fee). Under the hood of the 2020 Rogue Sport lies a 141-horsepower four-cylinder engine and all trims are paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Fuel economy ratings for the 2020 Rogue Sport, according to the EPA, stand at a solid 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg while on the highway. When equipped with all-wheel-drive those figures drop to 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
Nissan offers various packages on the 2020 Rogue Sport, including an optional technology package ($2,580) that adds a heated steering wheel, memory for the driver’s seat, memory for the outside mirrors, an around-view monitor, heated front seats, fog lamps, remote engine start with intelligent cruise control, an electronic parking brake, and adaptive cruise control. The automaker also offers buyers a cargo system called “Divide-N-Hide” that lets them configure the cargo area to their liking. Owners can opt to configure the cargo area however they wish to help keep their possessions organized and out of sight, killing two birds with one stone. A cargo cover is standard on all trims, but Nissan only offers the “Divide-N-Hide” system on the SV and SL trims.
Not to be confused with the Rogue model, the Rogue Sport is a smaller compact crossover that’s nimble enough for city driving. Buyers looking for an excellent crossover that’s competitively priced, offers modern features — especially advanced safety features– and features impressive fuel economy figures should look no further than the 2020 Rogue Sport. As an admirable daily driver that can maneuver its way around town and through crowded streets, the 2020 Rogue Sport remains a top option in its segment. Never underestimate the power of pragmatism and maneuverability in a vehicle, two key points in which Nissan delivers with the revamped Rogue Sport model.
