Comparing the Eye-Catching Nissan Rogue Sport to the Subcompact Competition

Like all SUVs in the Nissan crossover family, the Nissan Rogue Sport has a lot to offer St. Louis drivers. It has all the quality and craftsmanship you love about the larger Rogue SUV, but in a subcompact, easy-to-park size. At AutoCenters Nissan, we enjoy recommending the Rogue Sport to our customers who are looking for the SUV style and versatility, in a smaller package.

While many carmakers have been busy introducing new, small SUVs to American drivers, Nissan does it best. The Rogue Sport debuted just a couple years ago, and it's been a popular choice with our St. Louis customers ever since.

If you're considering a five-passenger SUV that's easy to drive and doesn't take up too much space in your garage, consider the Rogue Sport. If you're torn between this model and a competitor from another carmaker, let us help. Here, we've highlighted the differences between our crossover and the Mazda CX-3, to illustrate what makes our model the best one for your daily drive.

The Nissan Rogue Sport vs. the Mazda CX-3

  • Creature comfort features. Every Nissan Rogue Sport has a list of tech and comfort features St. Louis drivers want, with more and more features made standard as you move up through the various trim levels. Starting at the mid-trim level, the Rogues Sport SV, drivers can expect standard power-adjustable front seats, while the top trim, the Rogue Sport SL, has a complete roster of sought-after amenities standard, including a heated steering wheel. These same features are available for the Mazda CX-3, but they're only optional, and, in fact, only optional for just the top trim in the lineup.
  • Technology features. As with creature comforts, the Nissan Rogue Sport also offers more standard tech features than the Mazda CX-3. Look for standard smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as standard satellite radio, on every Nissan. These features are either not available at all on the Mazda, as is the case with the smartphone integration, or else only available for the top model, as with satellite radio.
  • Size and space. While both models seat five people and are considered subcompact, the Nissan gives drivers more room. The Rogue Sport actually measures slightly larger than the Mazda, coming in taller, wider, and longer than the CX-3. What this translates to inside is more space for you and your passengers to stretch out in. You'll gain extra headroom, shoulder room, and legroom in a Nissan Rogue Sport compared to the Mazda.
  • Cargo room. Not only is there more passenger space inside the Rogue Sport, you'll also be able to accommodate a lot more cargo than you would in a Mazda CX-3. The Nissan cargo hold can manage nearly 23 cubic feet of groceries or sporting equipment, while the Mazda tops out at just 12.4 cubic feet of storage.
  • Smooth driving capabilities. Yet another area where the Nissan Rogue Sport model's larger size makes it the better SUV for you is in its drivability. The Rogue Sport has a higher ground clearance and a larger wheelbase than the Mazda CX-3, making it smoother on bumps, potholes, and dirt roads. The Nissan excels at offering St. Louis drivers a smooth ride that easily deflects life's bumps.
