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.
2021 Rogue Sport Trims
While this first-level trim has generally basic amenities (remote keyless entry, USB connection ports, an overhead sunglasses holder, a rearview camera, and a 60/40-split folding second-row seat), it really makes an impression with its interior tech. This includes an Advanced Drive-Assist Display and an infotainment system that can be controlled via its 7-inch touchscreen or voice recognition; its other features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a hands-free text messaging assistant, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a four-speaker sound system. The S also gets a comprehensive suite of advanced safety features: intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, intelligent lane intervention, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, and rear automatic braking.
The SV’s slate of equipment is more advanced. Outside, it has fog lights, roof rails, and deluxe side mirrors that are heated to melt the frost and have turn-signal indicators for added safety. Nissan Intelligent Key comes standard too, enabling remote start as well as locking/unlocking the doors and raising the liftgate without taking the key fob out of your pocket. The cabin is filled with top-shelf features, such as two-zone automatic temperature control, a six-speaker sound system, push-button start, and illuminated vanity mirrors; meanwhile, the cargo area gains a cargo cover and a functional Divide-N-Hide system that keeps valuables out of sight. The SV also gets a comfort boost with a power driver’s seat with two-way lumbar support, heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped shift knob. If you’re looking to deck it out even further, you can add the Technology Package for some driver aids (ProPILOT Assist adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera system, and driver attention alert) and additional comfort/convenience features (an electronic parking brake, simulated-leather seats, and a memory system for the driver’s seat and side mirrors).
The SL has most of the contents from the Technology Package, the only exception being the memory system. It also drops the fog lights, but both of those features are available via the Premium Package, which also supplies LED headlights, a power front passenger’s seat, a moonroof, a Bose sound system, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener. The SL’s standard equipment includes real leather seats, NissanConnect services (enables remote access for certain vehicle functions), build-in navigation, and traffic sign recognition.
