2022 Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Its Competition

2022 Nissan Rogue Sport
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Subaru Crosstrek is our go-to for buyers seeking a small SUV with personality and value.

It’s a winner for a variety of reasons, and in Sport guise it has decent acceleration.

The Mazda CX-30 delivers sharp handling and good power with the optional turbocharged engine, making it a default choice for car enthusiasts.

Look to the Hyundai Kona for its slick styling and its amazing value, though it’s not exactly quick—except in battery-electric form.

The Chevy Trailblazer makes a strong styling statement outside but can feel wheezy to drive.

And if you’re looking to spend the big bucks Nissan demands for a loaded-up Rogue Sport, the delightful Volvo XC40 is not much more expensive and it’s a lot nicer.
