When it comes to the crossover lineup at Nissan, there are plenty of choices to get excited about. One of the youngest options available, followed only by the Kicks, is the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport. Slightly smaller and much sportier than the Nissan Rogue proper, the Rogue Sport made its debut for the 2018 model year and continues to make an excellent option between the Kicks and Rogue here in the Virginia Beach VA area. It makes an excellent option for any type of driver shopping in the compact crossover segment.
For the 2020 model year, Nissan engineers made several enhancements and refinements to enhance its value even more. They started with the exterior, redesigning things like the hood, bumper, V-motion grille and lighting. They even added a new set of 19” aluminum-alloy wheels and two new exterior color options, Nitro Lime Metallic and Monarch Orange Metallic.
Additionally, the Safety Shield 360 suite of advanced driver-assistive safety technologies, which includes features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Rear Automatic Braking, is now standard across all trim levels. Additionally, Advanced ProPILOT Assist is now standard on the SL trim, and available on the lesser SV trim.
Stepping away from what’s new, the 2020 Rogue Sport continues to be powered by a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine tethered to an Xtronic transmission and an available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. It’s capable of generating up to 141 horsepower, which is more than enough to deliver an enjoyable experience for you and all your passengers each time you hit the road.
There are plenty of other great features that make the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport an exciting option in the small utility vehicle class. If you’d like to come try one out for yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right here at Banister Nissan of Chesapeake.
