Consumers will immediately notice the new V-Motion grill which gives the compact SUV a more dynamic look while also aligning it with recent new Nissan models.
The Nissan Rogue has been Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in Canada for quite a while, but that didn’t stop Nissan engineers from making a few changes this year. The goal is to ensure that the 2017 Nissan Rogue remains competitive in its segment while also making sure that it offers the very best of what Nissan has to offer.
The introduction of the 2017 Nissan Rogue was part of Nissan’s Year of the truck, a year-long event which was highlighted by the release of several new or redesigned SUVs along with the new Nissan Titan full-size pickup.
A More Modern Design for the 2017 Nissan Rogue
The new 2017 Nissan Rogue’s design doesn’t change radically compared to the 2016 variant, but consumers will immediately notice the new V-Motion grill which gives the compact SUV a more dynamic look while also aligning it with recent new Nissan models. New wheels are also available including 19-inch rims for the high-end SL Platinum model. Sharper overall lines give the 2017 Rogue a more aggressive look, which remains modern and elegant.
The 2017 Rogue also gets a host of new active safety technologies which include adaptive cruise control, automatic braking with forward collision alert as well as pedestrian detection, and a lane departure warning system as well. These driver assistance technologies are designed to warn you in the event that an accident is about to happen, and intervene if you fail to do so.
Inside, the Rogue gets a few new features as well starting with a flat-bottom steering wheel and a gear shift lever which is now wrapped in leather. A seven-inch touchscreen now houses the infotainment system, and the SL Platinum trim features plenty of soft leather and high-quality materials that certainly give the compact SUV a premium feel that we are not used to seeing in this segment.
As always, the 2017 Rogue can be equipped with a third row of seats in order to accommodate up to seven passengers. In terms of cargo space, the 2017 Rogue offers 1,113 liters of cargo space behind the rear seats.
Fuel-Efficiency Combined with Performance in the 2017 Nissan Rogue
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission which delivers a smooth, linear drive which will be appreciated by drivers both in the city and on the highway. It also happens to improve fuel-efficiency and the new Rogue happens to be one of the most fuel-efficient compact SUVs on the market.
