2020 Nissan Rogue vs 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport

Serving Statesboro, GA

The Rogue has been among the more popular SUVs in the Nissan lineup since 2008. This is a compact crossover SUV that has benefited from extensive updates and improvements over the years. Approximately a decade after the Rogue’s release, the Rogue Sport was released as a standalone model. It is a subcompact crossover SUV, so it appears to be a smaller version of the Rogue at first glance. There are a few other differences between the 2020 Nissan Rogue and the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport that you need to be aware of before you pick out your next SUV from our inventory at Vaden Nissan Statesboro.


The 2020 Nissan Rogue is slightly larger and more expensive than the Rogue Sport, and it also has a more powerful engine. A 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine power the Rogue. This is paired to a continuously variable transmission with optional driving modes, and it produces 170 horsepower. The Rogue Sport is outfitted with a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine, and a similar transmission. With this well-designed combination, the Rogue Sport generates 141 horsepower. Both of these vehicles are sold with front-wheel drive or optional intelligent all-wheel drive.


While the exterior designs of the Rogue and Rogue Sport are comparable, a close review reveals that they have unique traits from front to rear. They share a familiar Nissan-inspired grille with a thick chrome design element, and the lower fascia on these vehicles is almost identical. You will notice subtle variations in the headlight and fog lamp designs. Across the hood and sides, the Rogue for 2020 has smoother surfaces with a graceful definition. The roof fades gradually down as it approaches the tailgate. In comparison, the 2020 Rogue Sport has a dramatic scoop that rolls off the hood and a sharper definition on the hood and sides. The roof’s angle is also more acute, and the Rogue Sport has black lower-body molding for an added touch of athleticism.


Inside, both of these SUVs offer two rows of seating. However, the larger dimensions of the Rogue lead to more space for the driver and passengers and almost 17 cubic feet of extra cargo space compared to the Rogue Select. With a price difference, you can rightfully expect most of the features to flow between these two vehicles on a trim-by-trim basis. Both models come with features like smart device integration, power seats, a sunroof, a lane departure warning, a multi-zone auto temperature control system, a blind-spot warning, high beam assist, and many other standard features.
