5 Enhancements Cementing 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport's Reputation as Intelligent Crossover

Although the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is smaller than the 2020 Rogue, it still offers a very large living area and is still very practical for a family life with three children or less.

Last week I was test-driving the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport and in this review I am going to tell you about Rogue Sport's 5 enhancements that further cement its reputation as an intelligent crossover.

The 2020 Rogue Sport is positioned between the Nissan Kicks, which I reviewed a week before and is smaller than the Rogue Sport and and the larger Nissan Rogue. If you don't need a large SUV for your family, but still need a good size trunk, consider the 2020 Rogue Sport. You know, the arrangement of the trunk is a benchmark for the entire industry. Often, and for many consumers, these are the only things to consider when purchasing a vehicle.

If you are thinking of Rogue Sport, keep in mind that while "Sport" is part of the name, it refers to the 2020 Rogue Sport's smaller size (compared to the regular Rogue), not to its performance. But if you care about your car's mileage, cargo space and you are on a budget, consider the Rogue Sport.

The 2020 Rogue Sport comes in three well-equipped trim levels – S, SV and SL. Each of these Rogue Level trim options are are offered in front-wheel and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive configurations. The MSRP of the S trim level starts at $23,240, the S AWD starts at $24,590 and the SV trim of the 2020 Nissan Rogue is priced at $24,750 dollars.

All trim levels of the 2020 Rogue Sport come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) regardless of trim; front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

Here are some 5 enhancements that come in the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport.

  1. Redesigned exterior featuring new hood, bumper, V-motion grille and aggressive lighting with LED signature Daytime Running Lights
  2. New available 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design and two bold new exterior colors: Nitro Lime Metallic and Monarch Orange Metallic
  3. Safety Shield® 360 technologies now standard on all grade levels – including Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Rear Automatic Braking
  4. Advanced ProPILOT Assist standard on SL grade, available on SV grade
  5. Standard 141-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder, available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

The enhancements further cement Rogue Sport's reputation as the intelligent crossover that amplifies the excitement of city life.

2020 Nissan Rogue Exterior and Interior

When it comes to the exterior design of the 2020 Rogue, it doesn't leave you indifferent. Rogue's proportions look good and its lines are well balanced. In short, it is a vehicle that meets all design standards. The interior of the Nissan Rogue follows exactly the same trend as the rest of the Japanese automaker's SUV concept. It's interesting, sober and virtual.

This is a good vehicle. It's neither daring nor ridiculous. Nissan Rogue is like a benchmark.

Nissan Rogue is ripe for replacement and I think the replacement is coming in 2021 model. But if your needs are space, low consumption and affordable price this is one of the cars that I would recommend for a family.
