2019 Nissan Rogue vs 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

A white 2019 Nissan Rogue on the left faces off against a grey 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport on the right, separated by a "VS" symbol.

The Nissan Rogue is well-known for being an excellent (and top-selling) crossover SUV. But what is less clear is what the difference is between it and it’s more recent cousin, the Nissan Rogue Sport. Well, we decided to shed a little light on this for you.

The Nissan Rogue Sport was a replacement for the Nissan Rogue Select, and is slightly smaller than the regular Rogue. It is made for versatile city driving without sacrificing the Rogue’s SUV capabilities. It is actually a version of the Nissan Qashqai, a line that Nissan originated in 2006 but was not sold in the United States until 2017, when Nissan announced it would begin selling the second generation Qashqai under the name “Nissan Rogue Sport.” Pretty wild, huh?

Still, narrowing down what sets these two models apart can be difficult. So we’ve created a chart illustrating the main differences on the basic trim levels, which we hope will help you find the model right for you!

Key Differences Between the 2019 Nissan Rogue and the 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

The main factor in your choice between these two great vehicles is your own individual needs and preferences. The Nissan Rogue starts at a few thousand dollars higher, but gives you that added engine power and additional space. The Sport, on the other hand, is cheaper while also being better for those who don’t need the power and space and want their vehicle to have a bit more maneuverability and convenience.
