Both the Nissan Rogue and the Nissan Rogue Sport are excellent compact SUVs that are fun to drive and come with several high-end conveniences. They have a lot in common, which makes it hard to choose between the two. 

One of the areas where the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Rogue sport differ is their engine sizes. Engine size and specs can have a huge impact on gas mileage, which in turn can have a huge impact on your wallet. That's why we've taken the time to compile some of the main differences between the two SUVs to help you decide which one best meets your needs.

Engine and Gas Mileage

Both cars come with one standard engine, which is what we’ll look at to simplify the comparison. However, both the Rogue and the Rogue Sport offer alternate engine options as well. 

Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that generates 170 HP and 181 lb/ft of torque. This is enough power to get you from 0-60 in 7.3 seconds, which is pretty respectable for a small SUV. 

The engine offers an EPA-estimated gas mileage of 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.

Nissan Rogue Sport

The Rogue Sport comes with a smaller 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates 141 HP and 147 lb/ft of torque. You can still get up to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, making the Nissan Rogue Sport a competitive runner-up to the Nissan Rogue. 

Despite the smaller engine, the gas mileage of the Rogue Sport is surprisingly lower than that of the Nissan Rogue. The EPA-estimated mileage of the Rogue Sport is 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. 

Features

Both the Nissan Rogue and the Rogue Sport have comfortable interiors with plenty of space for passengers and cargo alike. While they can look surprisingly similar on the inside, there are still a couple of features that set them apart. 

The Rogue includes features such as:

  • Door-to-door navigation with real-time traffic information and turn-by-turn directions

  • Heated front seating with memory foam

  • Hands-free messaging assistant, so that you can send text messages without looking at your phone

The Rogue Sport has several higher-spec features including:

  • Siri Eyes-Free, which allows you to update apps, send texts and make calls with the steering wheel controls

  • Remote access to the car's locking/unlocking features, as well as lights and horn

  • Display customization, allowing you to set up valet, boundary, curfew, and speed alerts

  • Foldable second-row seating for an extra six cubic feet of cargo space

Conclusion

While the Nissan Rogue has a larger engine than the Nissan Rogue Sport, it still offers better gas mileage, with 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. It's faster and has significantly more power and torque than its sporty cousin.

When buying a car, it's important to remember that numbers don't tell the whole story. The best way to decide which car is the best for you is to book a test drive. Consider booking a test drive of both SUVs at Graff Nissan in Okemos, MI to find out which one is your favorite today!
