The Rogue Sport, which Nissan introduced in 2017, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. The Rogue Sport has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Nissan offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.


The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is below average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport has a score of 75, implying a 0.049% chance of driver death (4.3% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0485% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.5436%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0485% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.5436% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is 1% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is 16% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Nissan Rogue Sport include: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.


And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
