2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2017 Mazda CX-3 near Framingham, MA

2017 Nissan Rogue Sport vs 2017 Mazda CX-3 near Framingham, MAPictured left is the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport with optional features. 

Spacious Interior of the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport

With so many different compact SUV’s available in today’s market, it can be difficult to know which model is right for you. At Marlboro Nissan, located on 740 Boston Post Rd E in Marlborough, we believe that the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, boasting an efficient ride and spacious interior, could be just what you’re looking for. To prove it, we’ve compared it to the 2017 Mazda CX-3 to see who comes out on top.

To start, let’s take a look at the two vehicles’ respective engine performances. On the surface, the Rogue Sport and CX-3 seem pretty even. Both achieve a respective fuel economies of 29/34 MPG city/hwy1 for Mazda and 25/32 MPG city/hwy1 for Nissan, and have similar horsepower of 141 for Nissan and 146 for Mazda. However, when it comes to driving range, the Rogue Sport is vastly superior to its competitor. With a highway range of 440 miles, it easily outstrips its competitor’s max of 350 miles, meaning on a full tank of a gas, you can drive 90 miles further in the Nissan versus the Mazda. Over the course of a long road trip, this means fewer stops for fuel and getting to your destination sooner. When you’re traveling in a car full for a restless young ones, anything to make your journey over quicker is always most welcome!

Examining the included and optional cabin technology also reveals that the 2017 Rogue Sport is the better vehicle. Again, at first the CX-3 seems fairly similar to the Nissan. Like the Rogue Sport, it also includes standard Bluetooth®2 audio and phone, AUX input, USB port, and voice command. However, while Nissan also offers both Real-Time Weather and Traffic as available features, Mazda does not provide these settings at any trim level. With a 7-inch Infotainment display3, the CX-3 seems to best the 5-inch screen in the Rogue Sport. But Nissan’s display has an excellent response time of just 0.3 seconds, compared to the sluggish 1.4 seconds of the Mazda. Though on the surface this may seem superficial, a quicker response time means you’ll be spending less time fiddling with the controls and more time focusing on the road ahead.

For as much time as you spend in your vehicle, you want a cozy interior to relax in after a long day. Once again, the 2017 Rogue Sport outclasses the Mazda CX-3. Nissan provides a generous 39.6/42.8 inches of head and legroom for the driver, while Mazda falls short with only 38.4/41.7 inches. You’ll also have the option to upgrade to heated front seats and a power driver’s seat in the Rogue Sport. With the CX-3, neither upgrades are available at even the higher trims. Additionally, Mazda only provides one-zone automatic climate control and does not offer a second row vent, meaning your passengers may feel stuffy in warmer weather. Thankfully, the Rogue Sport has duo-zone climate control and provides a vent for those sitting in back.

By providing this 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport versus 2017 Mazda CX-3 model comparison near Framingham, MA, we at Marlboro Nissan hope you see just how competitive the Rogue Sport is compared to other crossovers. Test drive this great SUV fom Nissan today by calling 508-573-5392 to speak with our expert staff, or visiting us in person. We’d love to see you soon!

This was my first visit to Marlboro Nissan and I was impressed with their customer service! Mark was personable and seemed genuinely interested in what I was looking for, he worked with me to make financing work, and the entire process was painless and pleasant! They were also mindful of the COVID precautions and have set up their space to ensure safety of customers and employees. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new or used Nissan.

We had a great experience from the moment of contact over text with Josh and his team, especially during this difficult time with Covid19. By far this was the smoothest dealership experience I have had. We were in and out in 1 hour and pick up our new car a few days later. I highly recommend👍🏼

Only issue was with covid no one was wearing mask and there was no guarantee that the workers would at least wipe down the steering wheel area. It’s not that I don’t trust people it’s just you can’t do business right now without following recommended guidelines. I don’t like wearing a mask either but you should at least wipe down the steering wheel.

The professionalism displayed at this dealership (especially during this pandemic) was simply fantastic. Dan Hedin is as good a GM as anyone I have ever dealt with in the past. Josh in Finance was equally impressive. The preparedness and safe environment this transaction was executed in will bring me back here for all my automotive needs....and others in my circle of friends will also hear about my experience. Marlboro Nissan Management is top shelf. Thank You! I WILL be back........Michalina Grasso

Josh and the entire staff are miracle workers.. My 2020 Rogue purchase was seamless in this tough time we are all in... I had a trade in and he made the numbers work and he was very informative. The experience was surprisingly low stress and efficient. When I had returned to pick up my registration and get my inspection I dealt with Paul in service. He is a very professional and a welcoming person.
