ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

As the name implies, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is sportier than the regular Rogue crossover SUV, which really isn't very sporty at all. It has sharper throttle response and generally feels more eager to get going, and by being about 200 pounds less, it has a lighter, more agile feel to it. The tauter, more buttoned-down suspension helps, too.

However, since this is a smaller SUV, is it still useful? Well, the cargo area has about 10 cu ft. less than the Rogue, both when comparing seat-up and seat-down specs. Still, the Sport's remaining space is usefully deep and wide -- most of the difference comes up high, which translates into space for larger, bulkier items. The Sport also has more space than virtually all subcompact crossover SUVs, and matches smaller compact ones. It's a bit of an in-between size that should work for many.

Interior space differences are greater, though mostly in regards to the significant reduction in rear legroom. Rear head and shoulder room are the same between Rogue and Rogue Sport. The two Rogues also share the same interior design, quality and most feature content.

Really, unless you need the most passenger and cargo space possible -- and few people actually do -- the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport in many ways is the more appealing and competitive Nissan compact SUV.
