We are never surprised when Nissan breaks new ground and thankfully, 2017 is no exception. The latest release from Nissan is the brand-new, city-sized 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport. While this small utility vehicle has been available around the world as the Nissan Qashqai since 2006, it is making its debut in the U.S in 2017. Despite a planned late-spring release date, we have enough information to take a closer look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport.

Though it looks a great deal like the Nissan Rogue, which was Nissan's most popular nameplate in 2016, the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport is 12.1-inches shorter and .has a 2.3-inch shorter wheelbase.

The crossover will be available in three trims - S, SV, SL - eight standard colors and two custom exterior colors.
