2021 vs 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport

2021 vs 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport


If you're considering a Nissan Rogue Sport, you may wonder what is new from the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport, and the difference from the 2020 model year. This can help you determine which one you want to get. Let's take a look at the details.


What's New?

The base S trim now comes with standard alloy wheels and heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a remote start. These features were previously part of a 2020 optional package for the SV trim.




The engine for the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport is similar but has differing horsepower output. The naturally aspirated 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine brings 181 hp and 181 torque in the 2021 version, but the 2020 version delivered 170 hp with 175 lb.-ft. of torque.

You'll also find the fuel economy. The 2021 model will get an estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. Compared to the 2020 model, it only gives you 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg. Some things remain the same, and you will love these added perks, such as the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and driving modes, which are as follows:


  • Eco mode (for general driving)
  • Off-road mode (use for off-roading adventures)
  • Snow mode (use for snowy, icy conditions)




If you need extra space in your interior, then you'll be interested to know both the 2020 and the 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport has 39.3 cubic feet of cargo volume available behind the rear seat. However, the 2021 version has 74.1 cubic feet when you fold down the rear seat, and the 2020 version has 70 cubic feet when it's folded down. Also, backseat passengers will ride in comfort with wider rear entry doors and Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control.


One trim that is making some design changes is the Platinum. This trim will now feature quilted and heated (front and rear) semi-aniline leather seats, ambient lighting, and a Bose sound system.


The dashboard of the new Rogue Sport has a standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will seamlessly connect with whatever smartphone device you're using. It is iPhone and Android compatible. For the higher trim levels, you can expect features, such as:


  • 9-inch touchscreen vs. 8-inch
  • Navigation system
  • 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster
  • 10.8-inch heads-up display monitor that projects vital information





Both models provide access to all the safety features you'll need - you have the ProPilot Assist, which combines Nissan's Intelligent Cruise Control and Steering Assist technologies. You'll also have other safety features, such as:


  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • High beam assist
  • Rear automatic braking
