At first glance, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is a bit odd. It's smaller than a compact SUV, but larger - especially inside - than many other subcompact SUVs in its segment. But it's also proof that going against the grain pays some unexpected dividends. If you're looking for a new SUV around Houston, it's time to visit Gillman Nissan and give this one a closer look.

2018 Nissan Rogue Sport Details 

Introduced last year, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is a smaller alternative to the popular and proven 2018 Nissan Rogue . Because it's so new, there are only a few trim-level tweaks this year, including the SL Premium package taking on the features of last year's Platinum package and a new SV Technology package that combines what used to be the SV Premium and All-Weather packages (ask your Houston area Nissan dealer about trims and option packages).

The compact-within-a-subcompact design has some definite upsides, especially if you want better cargo room than many competitors in the segment. The smaller size also means that the powertrain never feels underpowered even if this isn't a vehicle you'd buy for track day. We like the handling, which is responsive, and the styling that has just enough of an edge.

2018 Nissan Rogue Sport Safety and  Special Features

As we write this, neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS have completed testing of the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport. However, the design is proven, the construction's state-of-the-art, and the safety features ensure peace of mind.

Like other new Nissan models , each trim level comes very well-equipped. Each also offers options and option packages that make a good SUV even better. You can upgrade your infotainment display, add navigation, opt for a higher-wattage sound system, or even enjoy an Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection. The possibilities are seemingly endless.
