2017 Nissan Rogue Sport starts at $21,420, undercuts larger Rogue by $2,400

Europe's favorite compact SUV is now available to buy in the U.S. as well

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is nothing but a Qashqai, but that's a good thing because we're talking about Europe's best-selling compact SUV.

Going on sale on May 11 across the United States, the 2017 Rogue Sport in base S trim with FWD is priced aggressively, from $21,420 (excluding $960 destination). The new model offers both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, with three grade levels: S, SV, and SL. The SV is priced from $23,020 (FWD), while the SL starts at $26,070 (FWD). All-wheel drive is available for each grade for a premium of $1,350.

Described by Nissan as "right sized," the 184.5-in long Rogue Sport slots below the Rogue (called X-Trail in Europe) in the automaker's crossover SUV lineup for America. According to Nissan, the Rogue Sport targets young couples and singles that need "the versatility of a crossover and enough space when they need it, while still offering the sporty feel and handling more in line with a small sedan."

It offers five seats and 22.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats, but capacity grows to 61.1 cu-ft with the rear seats folded down. The Rogue Sport is available with a single engine choice, a 141-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine mated to a Xtronic CVT with Eco Mode switch.

Riding on a four-wheel independent suspension, the 2017 Rogue Sport claims better on-road maneuverability than the average crossover SUV and a fun-to-drive character.
