Detailed Review

The Nissan Rogue is a mid-range compact crossover SUV and is well known for its comfort and class leading fuel economy. The all-new 2017 Nissan Rogue has made a huge impact as it is now in the top ten best-selling vehicles in the USA. The 2017 model has gone through some minor and some major changes as now it also has a hybrid option in its variants lists.

The Rogue being one of the most selling vehicles still has some drawbacks which puts it away from being the best in the class. The 2017 Rogue is competing against ToyotaRAV4 LE, Honda CRV-LX and Mazda CX-Sport. The Competitors makeup for all the drawbacks of the Nissan Rogue and has same price margin which makes it a close competition.

We Recommend

The base variant does not have much to offer while moving to the hybrid side they are more functional, powerful, efficient and costly as well. The SV variant with the all-wheel-drive offers some advanced convenient features with 5 different package options available. It gets a long list of equipment as standard that you wont e looking for much additions in the car.

2017 Nissan Rogue Engine

6.4/10

The Nissan Rogue's continuously variable transmission paired with a 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine makes it feel weak compared to other SUVs in the class. Its handling, though well mannered, is softer than we prefer. -Edmunds

Engine & Transmission

The Nissan Rogue comes standard with a 170hp 4-cylinder 2.5L engine mated with a CVT automatic transmission. Its engine produces 175 lb.-ft. of torque and is available in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive options. In case of a hybrid model, the additional electric motor offers 176 hp of combined power and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. Being a fuel-efficient vehicle the 170 hp engine is way slower than others.

The Rogue has the least powerful powerhouse as the Mazda CX-5 features a 187 hp engine with 6-speed automatic transmission leads the segment and is $400 cheaper. The Toyota RAV4 which has only 6-more hp performs way better and is way more powerful than the Nissan Rogue. Having almost the same price tag of $24,000, the Nissan Rogue underperforms compared to its competitors.

Acceleration

Rogue S races from 0-60 in 9.3 sec and hits the quarter mile margin is 17.6 sec. In terms of acceleration, the SUV is rather slow for a 170 hp car. Well due to its class leading fuel economy it pays dearly when it comes to power and acceleration which is not much different when it comes to its Hybrid Variant.

The Nissan Rogue is the slowest car in the whole class and it gets slower as you speed up. Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, shows some impressive numbers as it has the best in class acceleration and some insane performance for a 176 hp car whereas the other competitors also have some good numbers.

Ride & Handling

The mid-range crossover SUVs are well known for their versatility, comfort, cargo and drive experience as they are compact, powerful, sportier and are fun to ride. Well, the Nissan Rogue is compact, has nice fuel efficiency and is versatile but it lacks the sportiness. The Rogue is more of an easy-going vehicle famous for its smooth, comfortable silent driving.

The Nissan Rogue designed for daily life use as it features a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with power steering which is precise and responsive but doesn't cut fast corners or offers sporty handling and has a bit of a body roll, it does have a four-wheel independent suspension and cruise control. Other than that, the transmission in noisy, engine is Laggy and lacks the fun of a crossover. 

Braking

The Nissan takes 124 ft. to get from 60-0 mph which is average in this segment. It features four-wheel ventilated disc brakes with an anti-lock braking system, emergency braking assist, traction control, and stability control. Measuring 124 ft. in stopping distance is perfect for a daily commute vehicle.

2017 Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy

7.7/10

The one thing that made Rogue famous is its best in class fuel economy. Not only in the hybrid variant but the standard variant offers some insane fuel efficiency. It offers an average mileage of 26/33 mpg in city/highway with a combined mileage of 29 mpg while the hybrid variant offers 34 mpg of combined fuel economy.

After the SUV's best in class fuel economy, the Honda CR-V LX also shows some impressive numbers and so are others.

2017 Nissan Rogue Interior

6.9/10

The Rogue's interior utilizes quality materials that are well assembled. Plastics are soft to the touch, and leather surfaces feel genuine. Third-row seating is available on S and SV models. We do have a few ergonomic gripes, though, and outward visibility is below average. -edmunds

Seating & Comfort

The Rogue is well known for its best in class interior and comfort. It is not only spacious or comfortable but is versatile, has a lot of option, offers a third-row choice and easily fulfills small family requirement. It is a 5-seater 4-door compact SUV, has a 6-way manual driver and 4-way manual passenger Bucket seats with split folding rear seats and a center armrest (foldable).

The Rogue features a multi-function steering wheel with multi-media and cruise control, new style steering wheel, digital gauge cluster, with several controls mounted on driver side door and center console. The interiors are wrapped with cloth upholstery with lots of high-quality soft-touch materials, keeping controls in one hand reach makes them accessible and lot more functional.

Infotainment System

The Rogue S comes standard with a 5.0 inch infotainment display with Bluetooth connectivity, but no Android Auto and Apple car play as well which is really disappointing. Well Nissan has made a few upgrades in their infotainment system as it is more user-friendly and has better graphics. You do get upgraded infotainment for higher tier but no packages and upgrade for the standard S variant.

It features a 4-speaker set, AM/FM stereo, satellite radio, Auxiliary Audio Input and Us connection with Bluetooth connectivity. It might not be the best you can get at this price but for daily commute, this is more than enough.

Cargo Space

The Rogue S has surprisingly big cargo space, well it does decreases as you switch between the hybrid models due to the battery pack, but for a compact SUV the it offers 32.0 cubic foot of standard cargo space which can be extended to 70.0 cubic foot after folding the rear seats of course. It has a wide opening and has a versatile boot area which can be adjusted as per need.

The Nissan does not features the best in class cargo as the CR-V takes the lead in the segment but the CX-5 features the smallest cargo area.

Towing Capacity

The Nissan Rogue is a daily commute vehicle but it is also designed for off-roading and long-term adventures. Weighing 3424 lbs., it has the capacity to tow about 1/3rdof its weight that is about 1000 lbs., although not much, but for a 170 hp compact SUV is rather good. On the other hand, the Mazda can tow twice as the Nissan for just 17 extra hp well that's impressive.

2017 Nissan Rogue Exterior

7.7/10

The Rogue doesn't go out of its way to shock or awe crossover-SUV shoppers. -carconnection

The Nissan Rogue has gotten through some minor changes and a few touches than the 2nd gen as it looks more modern and aggressive. The 2017 model gets LED daytime light, LED indicators and slightly long grille, while remaining when it comes to dimensions, features same wheel and not much changed in interiors as well, overall it has a sturdy but stylish body.

The Rogue S is 184.5 inch long and 72.4 inch wide with a body height of 66.3 making it compact but spacious. The 7.8 inch ground clearance makes off-roading possible as the 106.5 inch wheelbase keeps this 3424 lbs. vehicle stable. In the competition, the Nissan is the biggest SUV which also makes it the most spacious and more suitable for a family.

As the 2nd gen Rogue got famous for its fuel economy and versatility and started being used for daily commute and became a family friendly compact SUV, Nissan decided to add some high-end safety features with the basic safety features and kept them standard in the SUV to make daily commute safer. It has a 4 star overall safety rating by NHTSA. 

The Rogue has all the basic safety features like anti-lock braking, stability/traction control, front and side airbags, anti-theft alarm system, emergency braking and engine immobilizer with some added features like pre/post collision safety system, daytime running light, auto delay off headlamps, blind spot warning, emergency braking preparation and airbag occupant sensing deactivation.

2017 Nissan Rogue Competition

Toyota RAV4 LE vs Nissan Rogue

The Toyota RAV4 LE is a $24,410 SUV which is $10 cheaper but still has 6 more hp with 6-speed automatic. The Toyota offers better performance, drive experience and has bigger cargo and can tow 500lbs more than what Nissan can which makes it a tough competitor. Well, the Nissan still holds it standard as it more efficient and versatile but the Toyota is not on the bad side either.

Mazda CX vs Nissan Rogue

The Mazda CX is the most powerful car in the whole competition but does not offers the expected performance. It is more on the sportier side than being a daily commute, it has more aggressive and sportier body with more luxurious interiors. The Mazda is more of a fun to ride SUV than a family SUV. It is more fun but less versatile than the Nissan Rogue.

Well the Mazda is cheaper but way powerful and has better towing capacity and satisfactory fuel economy but it is less spacious and is more compact then the Nissan. 

2017 Nissan Rogue Final Verdict

The Nissan Rogue is an ideal daily commute family SUV which is comfortable, efficient has low cost of ownership, and is reliable as well as versatile. Its spacious interiors and long drive comfort level makes it very friendly car and suitable for all type of work or driving. It can do daily job, tow loads and also gets dirty when required.

Its $24,420 price tag makes it more affordable and its awesome quirks and features makes it a suitable family SUV. The rogue has one major disadvantage which is its lack of power, well even after a 170 hp car it is numb and way slow compared to the Toyota as it has only 6hp less. But as long as that doesnt bothers you this is the perfect crossover SUV that you can get.
