2021 Nissan Rogue Sport for Sale in Warwick, RI
The Nissan Rogue was introduced in 2007 and built a strong following for itself as one of the first crossovers. Ten years later, Nissan released the Rogue Sport, a more compact vehicle with many of the same qualities yet at a lower price point. Drivers who want bit more nimbleness and fuel economy a tad higher can choose this subcompact version, while those who want more space and a few more premium features can go for the original Rogue. For the 2021 model year, the Rogue Sport is back with a few improvements, including standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels for the base trim and more standard luxuries (namely heated front seats and a heated steering wheel) for the SV.
Trims and Mechanical Basics
There’s a trio of trim levels for the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport: the S, SV, and SL. Under the hood of all is a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; its partner in the powertrain is a continuously variable transmission (CVT). All trims are front-wheel drive by default, but all-wheel drive is optional (and very popular in New England). FWD Rogue Sports are EPA-rated for around-town fuel economy of 25 mpg and 32 mpg on the highway; with AWD they officially achieve 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
Standard Equipment and Options
The S trim is a great entry-level choice, getting automatic halogen headlights, a cabin air filter, a rear spoiler, power exterior mirrors in body color, keyless entry, a USB port, a rear-seat center armrest, approach lighting, smartphone integration, and a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat. The SV adds remote start, fog lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, roof rails, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a power driver’s seat with lumbar support, upgraded cloth seats (heated in front), and the Divide-N-Hide covered cargo management system. The optional Technology Package will add an electronic parking brake, position memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, a surround-view monitor, simulated-leather seats, and Intelligent Driver Alertness. The SL is the ultimate trim, with leather seats, 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, ProPilot Assist, and navigation. The optional Premium Package (LED headlights and fog lights, a power front passenger’s seat, a sliding moonroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and position memory for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors).
Technology and Safety
Nissan is a leader in driver-assist – and ultimately autonomous driving – technology. The Safety Shield 360 package of these technologies is included on all 2021 Rogue Sports. The version in the S trim consists of automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, intelligent lane intervention, a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear sonar, and rear automatic braking. The SV is eligible for the Technology Package, which will add ProPilot Assist adaptive cruise control, a surround-view monitor, and intelligent driver alertness, all of which come standard on the top-of-the-line SL.
The base infotainment setup is generously equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, hands-free text messaging, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a four-speaker sound system, all of which can be controlled via the 7-inch touchscreen or voice recognition. The SV gets two more speakers. The SL’s infotainment system includes navigation and can be further upgraded with a top-notch Bose sound system.
