Looking for a practical and efficient small SUV in Newnan? Thanks to the popularity of the Rogue with Douglasville-area drivers, Nissan launched the Rogue Sport in 2017. What are the benefits of the original 2020 Nissan Rogue compared to its Sport spinoff, and which best meets your needs and budget? Below, Scott Evans Nissan compares the Rogue Sport vs. Rogue trim levels so you can decide for yourself.

2020 Nissan Rogue vs. Rogue Sport: Dimensions

The Rogue and Rogue Sport have a lot in common, but you’ll definitely be able to tell them apart, especially after changes to the Sport’s exterior styling in 2020. Changes include a revised Nissan “V-Motion” grille and signature LED daytime running lights, plus newly designed tail lights, bumper, and hood. Put together, these changes lend a fittingly aggressive appearance to this sporty sibling of the Nissan Rogue. Compared to Sport, the elder Rogue is also noticeably larger. Compare Rogue vs. Rogue Sport dimensions, below:

  • Length — The shorter Rogue Sport measured 172.8 inches long, making it a better choice for maneuvering into tight parking spots. The larger Rogue is still nimble, but a 184.5-inch length opens up more space inside the cabin.
