If you’re shopping in the compact crossover segment, there are actually a couple of excellent options right here from the Nissan brand. While the Nissan Rogue has become an icon on the lineup, back in 2018 Nissan introduced its slightly smaller, much sportier sibling the Rogue Sport. Now, the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport makes a great choice in its segment here in the Newport News VA area. Although it only has a couple of years under its belt, it’s already established itself as an excellent model and great choice in its class.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport has plenty to offer both inside and out, with a laundry list of both standard and available features that ensure you’ll enjoy each experience you have behind the wheel. It’s powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and an Xtronic transmission, which features an Eco Mode switch. The powertrain is capable of generating 141 horsepower alongside 147 pound-feet of torque, and you can enhance performance even further by opting for the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System.
While the powertrain might be the same as it was in previous years, Nissan did decide to upgrade a few things throughout the Rogue Sport for 2020. When it comes to advanced safety features, the Rogue Sport now comes standard with Safety Shield 360. This package of technologies includes things like Rear Automatic Braking and Automatic Emergency Braking, ensuring a greater sense of safety regardless of which trim level you opt for. Advanced PropPILOT Assist is also now standard on SL trim level, and you can add it to the SV trim.
Nissan also upgraded the crossover’s style quite a bit, introducing new metallic exterior colors Nitro Lime and Monarch Orange, a new set of 19” aluminum-alloy wheels and several exterior design cue changes, including an upgraded hood, bumper, V-motion grille and much more aggressive lighting, including a set of LED signature DRLs.
