Convincing Illusions Of Space And Sportiness | 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport First Drive

Convincing illusions of space and sportiness | 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport First DriveNissan has been selling the Qashqai subcompact crossover for several years in other parts of the world. Now it's coming stateside, but it won't retain the global name, which is difficult to pronounce and spell. Instead, it will borrow the well-known and profitable moniker from its larger sibling, the Rogue, with the word "Sport" tagged onto it.

Nissan is marketing the Rogue Sport as slightly smaller and sportier than the family-friendly Rogue, which is its best-selling US nameplate. The smaller part is not up for debate. The Sport is a foot shorter in overall length with a 2.3-inch squatter wheelbase. It's 5.6 inches shorter in height, and at just over five feet tall, one can see right over the thing while standing next to it. Total cargo space is down by 8.9 cubic feet, with most of that coming from behind the second row of seats. Front legroom is virtually unchanged, but rear legroom is down by 4.5 inches in the Sport. It's marketed toward younger, more urban buyers compared to the Rogue – generally, people with no children who are looking for "just enough space," Nissan says. It's definitely compact, especially when you behold it from the outside.

Nissan Leaf All-Terrain EV Charges Up For Mongol Rally [w/Video]

Nissan is no stranger to racing, but you won't find many of its vehicles on the rally stage – not in the WRC, nor in the Global or World Rallycross Championships neither. But it has converted one of its cars for a rally this summer. And while it's a hatchback, it's not the Micra, Note, or Pulsar you might expect.

Set to take part in the Mongol Rally this year is the Leaf, if you can believe it. Called the Leaf AT-EV (for All Terrain Electric Vehicle), it's based closely on the road-going model, but has been modified extensively for the purpose.
