The 2017 Nissan Rogue is a compact SUV that seats up to 7 passengers. It competes with the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Hyundai Tucson. This year, it receives minor revisions to its exterior and interior as well as additional standard safety features.
Three trims are available: the S, SV, and SL.
For a small crossover, the Rogue has a more imposing appearance with its revised front- and rear-end. The enlarged, V-Motion grille is sportier and more dramatic than the previous design. The lower front fascia features new C-shaped motifs that can frame available fog lights. The rear fascia has also been slightly revised with larger accent lights. Standard features include LED daytime running lights and a rear spoiler. LED headlights, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, roof rails, chrome door handles, a panoramic moonroof, a hands-free power liftgate, and larger 19-inch alloy wheels are also available.
Under the hood, the Rogue is powered by a standard 170-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. Fuel economy for the FWD models is an EPA-estimated 26/33 mpg city/highway. It slightly lowers to a 25/32 mpg rating for the AWD models.
Inside, the Rogue has a standard cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. An available third-row split folding bench seat can be added as well. The center stack features a standard audio system with a 5-inch color display, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to the NissanConnect multimedia system, which includes a larger 7-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Siri Eyes Free mode with voice recognition, and a Bose premium audio system. Air conditioning, power windows/locks, cruise control, and a discrete Divide-N-Hide rear cargo system come standard. Available features include full leather upholstery, power/heated front seats, a memory seat, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, and push-button start.
The Rogue earned a 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available active safety features now include a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and adaptive cruise control.
