2022 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2022 Nissan Rogue

Serving Troy, MI

Many of our customers at Suburban Nissan of Troy inquire about the differences between the 2022 Nissan Rogue and the 2022 Rogue Sport. While these small crossovers have similar nameplates, they are strikingly different. For example, the compact Rogue crossover SUV has been a part of the Nissan line for many years, and the subcompact Rogue Sport crossover joined the lineup in 2017. With many other differences between the models, a closer look at these top options is in order.


Both of these vehicles deliver a spirited performance behind the wheel. All three of the Rogue Sport’s trim levels receive 141 horsepower from a four-cylinder engine linked to a continuously variable transmission. These trims come with front-wheel drive, or you can opt to upgrade to all-wheel drive. The larger Nissan Rogue has four trim levels, and they all receive 201 horsepower from a turbo three-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine. This engine is connected to a continuously variable auto transmission, and it drives the front wheels. Optional all-wheel drive is a possibility for all trims.


The differences between the Rogue and the Rogue Sport continue throughout their exteriors. Both of these models have a V-motion grille and LED headlights. However, the Rogue Sport has stronger curvature across its profile. A chrome bar bisects the grille for a unique look on the front end. In addition, the LED ribbon that runs through the headlights has a pointed quality that corresponds with the grille’s shape and the foglights. Raised roof rails, solid side definition, and black body molding are also parts of the Rogue Sport’s façade. The profile of the 2022 Rogue has a more linear look with a prominent hood and a tall roofline. Its grille is underscored by a chrome bar. The angled headlights have been segmented for a modern touch. You will find linear definition running across the lower portion of the door panels and above the rear fenders.


There are also differences in the interior and safety features across these models. The Rogue Sport is offered with a sunroof, a navigation system, a driver attention warning, an auto climate control system, a push-button ignition, remote engine start, forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, a 7-inch central display screen, USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, lane departure mitigation, and cloth or leather material across the trim levels. The Rogue includes many of these features. It adds a larger central display screen, satellite radio, driver’s seat memory functions, rear sunshades, a power liftgate, a wireless hotspot, rear air vents, and other features.
