Should I Buy the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport?

The Rogue Sport offers good occupant comfort, is a great size if you live in a city and can have many convenience and advanced safety features. Just be sure to take it on higher-speed roads if you’re considering one; we thought its drivetrain didn’t offer much power under full acceleration. Road noise is also an issue.

Performed great in the mountains

I was a little worried about the 4 cylinder engine in the mountains on our vacation but was pleasantly surprised with the way it handled the small curvy mountain roads as well as the Interstates while maintaining 30.0 mpg all the way. We love the ride, performance and appearance of this vehicle.


Great vehicle inside and out

Great ride ~ smooth and comfortable. Excellent gas mileage. Lots of interior room. Great look. Just an overall great car !!! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a sporty SUV
