Back in January, Nissan introduced its Qashqai compact crossover to the United States with the new, easier-to-pronounce name, Rogue Sport. Now comes pricing. The Rogue Sport will start at $22,380 for the entry-level S front-wheel-drive model. That's a price difference of nearly $2,400 compared with an equivalent Rogue. The savings continue through the lineup, with each trim level Rogue Sport starting at more than $2,000 less than the same trims on its bigger brother.

For the base price of $22,380, a Rogue Sport S doesn't offer many amenities. The wheels are 16-inchers, and inside is just the basics including air conditioning, four-speaker stereo, and USB and Bluetooth connectivity. Springing for an SV, which starts at $23,980 will add 17-inch alloys, dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic headlights, keyless entry and start, and a six-speaker sound system. The plush $27,030 SL adds heated leather seats and steering wheel, 19-inch wheels, 7-inch touchscreen, and fog lights.

Regardless of trim, every Rogue Sport will include a 2.0-liter inline-four producing 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque. That power is channeled through a CVT to the front wheels. All-wheel-drive is available on all trim levels for an extra $1,350. Suspension is fully independent with a multi-link design in the rear, and disc brakes are found at each corner. If a Rogue Sport sounds like a good deal to you, you'll be able to pick one up very soon. The little crossover goes on sale May 11.
