In the era of the crossover, car-buyers have more choices than ever before to find a compact SUV that meets their style. One of the model types that we have come to appreciate more and more over the past year is the Nissan Rogue.
Even though the Nissan Rogue doesn’t come with a lot of the flash that you might find from a luxury brand, it does all the things you might expect and then some. Take a look at the following list of five simple reasons why we think so highly of the often overlooked crossover from Nissan.
1. Updated Styling
The Nissan Rogue makes a strong first impression with its V-shaped grille, angular lines, and beautifully-crafted light fixtures. Its strong structural design gives the Nissan Rogue a sense of sophistication that you will have a hard time finding without looking at a luxury brand crossover.
2. High Number of Safety Features
With Safety Shield 360, all four sides of the Nissan Rogue are constantly being monitored so the driver is aware of everything happening around the vehicle at all times. Furthermore, the Rogue comes with driver assistance technology such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Rear Automatic Braking.
3. Versatile Interior
Crossovers are so attractive to car-buyers because they can be optimized for either more luggage or more seating. This is something that the Nissan Rogue has perfected with its divide and hide cargo system that allows you to configure the trunk to 18 different position settings. Furthermore, the Rogue has 39.3 cubic feet of space in the cargo area with the back seats up, and that can be expanded to 70 cubic feet with the back seats laying flat.
4. Competent Powertrain
The Nissan Rogue is equipped with a 2.5 L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 170-horsepower and 175 lb-feet of torque. That’s plenty of punch for a crossover this size. You can also elect to get the Nissan Rogue in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. Regardless of which option you go with, various drive modes like Eco and Sport make it easy to adapt to different styles of driving on the fly.
5. Exceptional Value
As a mid-tier level car brand, Nissan makes highly functioning vehicles that are available at a fair price point. If you do a little shopping to see comparable models, you will quickly see that pricing on the Nissan Rogue is not only fair but quite a bargain.
