New Rogue Sport vs. Buick Encore Comparison

If you crave power and efficiency, the Nissan Rogue Sport clearly edges out the new Buick Encore for drivers in the Kingsport area.  The new Encore comes equipped with a 1.4-liter I4 engine at its base, putting out 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.  In comparison, the new Rogue Sport comes fitted with a more ambitious 2.0-liter I4 engine at its base that generates 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque.  The Nissan starts at a lower price than the Buick SUV, saving you money right from the start, even with similar fuel economy ratings from the EPA.  If you want to experience more peace of mind during your travels, the Rogue Sport S FWD also features a forward obstruction warning system as standard equipment, a component that does not come on the Buick Encore Base FWD SUV.  The new Nissan offers the following benefits over the Buick crossover:

  • More horsepower
  • Significantly more hip and shoulder room
  • Lower starting price
  • Standard safety technologies
  • More cargo volume
  • Increased passenger volume

Nissan Rogue Sport vs. Mazda CX-3

Premium comfort comes at an attractive price when you select the new Rogue Sport over the Mazda CX-3.  Whether you're looking for increased cargo capacity or a more comfortable seating arrangement for your growing family as you navigate the Bristol, TN region, the Nissan subcompact SUV dominates the new CX-3. The Nissan Rogue Sport offers more head and shoulder room in all seating positions than the Mazda crossover, and more front leg room to keep the driver and front passenger comfortable on longer commutes.  Both SUV models seat up to five total people, however the Rogue Sport offers 96 cubic feet of passenger volume and 22.9 cubic feet of cargo volume in comparison to the Mazda model's meager 87.6 and 12.4 cubic feet of volume.  The Rogue Sport offers the following highlights over the Mazda competition:

  • More head and shoulder room
  • Increased passenger volume
  • Significantly more cargo volume
  • Greater fuel capacity
  • Independent suspension system


Rogue Sport vs. Hyundai Kona

Luxury and technology combine in the new Nissan Rogue Sport, giving you a more versatile daily driving experience than you'll get from the new Hyundai Kona.  The Kona lacks some of the infotainment features that drivers in Bristol have come to expect, including a CD player for those that prefer tangible media experiences.  While it's true that the subcompact Hyundai Kona gets slightly better fuel economy than the Nissan at the base trim of both models, the Nissan offers more fuel capacity to get you started.  EPA estimates put the Hyundai Kona SE FWD model at 27 mpg city/33 mpg highway/30 mpg combined and the Nissan Rogue Sport S FWD model at 25/32/28 mpg. Unlike the Hyundai model, the Nissan crossover also has the benefit of Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety features to improve your safety on the streets of Johnson City and beyond.  These standard features include a Blind Spot Warning system and a Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature, in addition to a suite of driver-assistive technologies that come standard or as part of a package.  Your Nissan Rogue Sport offers several benefits over the Hyundai crossover, including:

  • More shoulder and hip room
  • Nissan Intelligent Mobility features
  • Increased options for infotainment, including a CD player
  • More passenger volume
  • Additional cargo volume
