Cons
Handling isn't as composed as it is in some competitors

Modest tow rating limits overall utility
Only available engine is underpowered

It looks visually similar to the last model, so has enough changed to entice buyers into the all-new Subaru Forester?

Pros
Loaded with safety and convenience features
Ultra-wide passenger door opening aperture
Full-time all-wheel drive system
Fuel efficient four-cylinder petrol engine

Cons

Higher starting price

The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is a good value, but it’s light on performance.

Pros
Good safety tech
Low price
Pleasant styling

Cons
Far from sporty
Slow acceleration
Cramped back seat

By:

Nissan has elevated the styling of the 2020 Rogue Sport with a new front and rear design, LED daytime running lamps, and a redesigned grille and hood that contribute to a much more chiseled look. Nissan also has added two new colors to the Rogue Sport's palette: Nitro Lime Metallic and Monarch Orange Metallic. Additionally, the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assistance technologies that was previously offered on the SV and SL is now a standard feature on all trims. If you're looking to spice things up, Nissan also is offering a new 19-inch wheel design that takes its inspiration from its luxury cousin, the Infiniti QX50.

Pros
Sleek exterior design, efficient powertrain, great standard safety features.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration, coarse engine sounds, lower trims lack some commonly found features.
