Smaller than the Rogue – the company’s best-selling vehicle in the US – the Sport/Quasai will be powered by a standard 141-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine, and available in a few trims including the S, SV and SL grade choices.
The Rogue is a good fit for smaller families while the new, smaller Rogue Sport might work better for couples or singles who don’t need too much cargo space. The wheelbase is 2.3-inches shorter and 12.1-inches shorter overall than its Rogue cousin.
