2019 Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Its Competition

2019 Nissan Rogue Sport
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Among small utility vehicles, the 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport is mid-pack.

The Nissan lacks the off-road chops (and wagon versatility) of the Subaru Crosstrek and the verve of the CX-3, but the Rogue Sport is more affordable than both in its most popular configuration.

The Chevy Trax and Ford EcoSport are domestic competitors without much flair—they’re both stopgaps plugged in from global models until a more permanent solution reveals itself.

The Honda HR-V is a good all-rounder and should be on the top of most shopping lists in the class.
