2022 Nissan Rogue Sport Interior and Cargo

2022 Rogue Sport Interior

The interior of the Rogue Sport is perhaps its strongest selling point. The styling is muted but sophisticated, with a more traditional approach to design. The extra few inches in the exterior dimensions translate to an eminently spacious cabin for the segment, with a superb balance between cargo and passenger space. And while not many comfort or convenience features come standard, they can be optioned on, while the standard safety suite is quite extensive as is. The controls are laid out in a user-friendly way, but the infotainment can be a bit tricky to learn at first.

Seating and Interior Space

Passenger space inside Nissan's subcompact crossover is among the best in the class, with competitive front headroom and unrivaled front legroom. The rear seats are just as generous with headroom, but legroom is a bit more restricted. Most adults should be able to fit in either row without too much trouble, but the rear seats would be better suited to those of smaller stature. The driver's seat offers six directions of manual adjustment as standard, although an eight-way power seat with lumbar support is standard on the upper trims. The front seats also get heating on the SV and SL models. The driver's seat is positioned quite high for a crossover, providing a commanding view of the road, while the abundance of standard and available driver-assistance features cover any possible shortcomings. Getting in and out of the SUV is extremely easy thanks to its low step-in height, but the higher seats mean you will have to pull yourself up a bit.

Interior Colors and Materials

The interior of the Nissan Rogue Sport is well-made, and the choice of materials is far from low-grade. The entry-level S trim comes upholstered in cloth as standard, with Charcoal being the only color offered. This is upgraded to premium cloth on the SV, and Light Gray is added to the palette. The SV also gets access to the optional leatherette upholstery, which comes as part of the $1,850 Technology Package, but the color options are not expanded any further. The top-tier SL gets exclusive access to standard genuine leather upholstery, also in your choice of Charcoal or Light Gray. Additionally, color choices are restricted by certain exterior paint choices.

2022 Rogue Sport Trunk and Cargo Space

While the Rogue Sport doesn't lead the segment when it comes to cargo capacity, it is certainly neck-and-neck with the best of the subcompacts. This can be attributed to the slightly larger dimensions of the crossover and its close relation to the more capable Rogue. Behind the rear seats on the base S, there is 22.9 cubic feet of space, while the SV gets 20 cubes and the SL 19.9. If you can't fit your weekly grocery shopping in the trunk, you clearly have enough money to spare to afford a larger SUV. Still, this area can be expanded by folding the rear seats down in a 60/40 split, providing 61.1 cubic feet on the S and 53.3 cubic feet on the upper trims.

Small-item storage is pretty run-of-the-mill, with four cupholders and four bottle holders provided throughout the cabin. A passenger-side glove compartment comes standard and there is a storage bin within the center armrest. There are no bins or trays around the center console, but the door pockets are pretty generous.

2022 Rogue Sport Infotainment and Features


As a more affordable crossover, the Nissan Rogue Sport can seem relatively sparsely equipped, but it still gets more than you might expect. Even the base S model gets the complete Safety Shield 360 safety suite, which comprises forward-collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, automatic rear braking, intelligent lane intervention, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The comfort and convenience features are a bit more spartan, though, with only air-conditioning, cruise control, and a six-way manual driver's seat coming standard. There is a 12-volt power outlet and six cargo tie-downs are provided in the trunk as well. The mid-tier SV upgrades to heated front seats, an eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, while adding dual-zone climate control, remote engine start, a shift knob wrapped in leather, a leather-bound and heated steering wheel, and keyless ignition. The almost-luxurious SL gets upgraded adaptive cruise control and Nissan's patented ProPilot Assist. A surround-view camera, traffic-sign recognition, and a driver-alertness system bolster the safety suite. Optional upgrades include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, driver-seat memory, and a power sliding moonroof.


The infotainment suite on the subcompact SUV is pretty basic, but that also makes it relatively easy to navigate, once you get used to its unorthodox menu system. Still, the graphics are a bit dated and the seven-inch touchscreen is somewhat on the small side. The touchscreen is supplemented by hard buttons to either side of the screen, and it comes equipped with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM as standard. The sound system comprises a four-speaker setup with standard AM/FM stereo, but a USB port and auxiliary input are available to connect your devices. The SV trim upgrades the sound system with an additional two speakers, while the top-tier SL enhances the touchscreen interface with additional software like built-in navigation, SiriusXM Traffic, and NissanConnect services, which includes Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. An eight-speaker Bose premium audio system can be optioned on the SL model.
