So, i didn't expect the CVT to be anything great but from this snippet taken from Car and Driver, it raises some slight concerns. Due to this I am on the search for feedback from Rogue Sport CVT owners. Living in the States its of course my only option. But you Canadians get what will really make this model shine...

The Rogue Sport’s four-cylinder revs much more smoothly and quietly, making the occasional high-rpm droning of the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) less obtrusive and bothersome. Even so, the CVT annoyingly slurs its faux shift points and suffers from some rubber-band effect. That made us jealous of Canadians, whose version of this vehicle (it keeps the Qashqai branding) gets a standard six-speed manual transmission, which won’t be offered in the United States.

I am more envious of the UK options for diesel and turbo gasoline engines. Both get insane fuel mileage. Europeans truly treat manual transmissions as "standard" and automatics are lower in number. All you have to do is compare rental cars in Europe and North America. Canadians may get offered manual transmissions, but most of us are lazy and opt for automatic unless it is in a sports car.
