The best-selling compact 2017 Nissan Rogue SUV has undergone a major revamp that now includes new trim packages, redesigned exterior and interior setups, and many more standard feature additions all for a starting price of MSRP $23,820. Vying with rivals such as the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and the Mazda CX-5 for the ultimate best-in-class honor, the Rogue did have some drawbacks up until 2017 that kept it away from being the best. Powertrain duties are still looked after by a standard 170 hp 2.5L Inline-4. This is apart from the newly introduced 2017 Nissan Rogue hybrid, which sports a 141 hp 2.0L Inline-4 engine, along with a 40 hp electric motor.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Overall Rating

The Rogue's success rests in its intriguing styling in a sea of bland-looking crossovers and a size advantage over most competitors - Car and Driver

Slotted below the other Nissan heavyweights such as the Pathfinder and Armada, the 2017 Rogue succeeds in offering a fresh perspective for buyers looking for their premium daily driver in the compact SUV class. The Nissan Rogue looks extremely great on the outside and even better on the inside with segment-leading cabin space. With a myriad of feature choices, especially on the safety front and along with a consumer-friendly price tag, the 2017 Rogue is well worth your time.

Nissan extensively redesigns the Rogue after a long gap with a new V-motion grille inculcated within the front fascia, and again extensively redesigning the rear fascia with the new LED taillights and revised tailgate design. Available in three different trims, Nissan also offers some optionally available features through new Platinum packages. Plus it is priced competitively too within the segment.

2017 Nissan Rogue Features


The new refreshed 2017 Rogue has a total of three premium trim levels, namely S, SV, and SL with prices ranging from an MSRP of $24,420 to $31,310 for the top-end trim. These trims are also available with the hybrid variant, with the SV hybrid starting from $26,240, while the SL hybrid comes in at $31,160. All of the said trims will be powered by a standard 2.5L NA Inline-4 engine coupled with an XTronic CVT that sends power to either the front wheels or for an extra $1350 to all the wheels.

Including the variety of features added to the 2017 Nissan Rogue, the standard variant S now gets LED daytime running lights, Drive assist Display, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Further coming to the top-most trim, the SL now features an even more advanced infotainment system with Navigation, plus with the new Platinum package on offer, the SL trim is filled with a host of tech features.

Trim S SV SL
MSRP (FWD) $24,420 $25,640 $30,360
MSRP (AWD) $25,770 $26,990 $31,710
Key Features LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) Power heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators Motion Activated Liftgate
  SiriusXM Satellite Radio Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control NissanConnectSM with Navigation, Mobile Apps, and Services
  Advanced Drive-Assist Display Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition Bose Premium Audio System with nine speakers, including two subwoofers

We Recommend

We'd recommend you opt for the SV trim, which comes at a competitive price of MSRP $25,640. We say this because the base S variant does not have much to offer and while moving to the hybrid side they might be more functional, powerful, and efficient, but costly as well. The SV variant with the all-wheel-drive offers some advanced convenient features with 5 different package options available.

2017 Nissan Rogue Engine and Performance


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 - Edmunds

2017 Nissan Rogue Engine & Transmission

The 2017 Nissan Rogue comes standard with a 170 hp 4-cylinder 2.5L engine mated with an XTronicCVT. It also produces a total of 175 lb-ft of torque which is either sent to the front wheels or all of the wheels depending on your choice. Nevertheless, the CVT in the Rogue is not the best unit to put all of the power down instantaneously but does aid in delivering impressive MPG figures. Thus with that being said, the 2017 Rogue also misses out to post good acceleration figures too. 

Now for the 2017 MY, Nissan also introduces a brand new hybrid Rogue, which further extends the varied Rogue lineup. In hindsight, apart from delivering astounding fuel economy numbers, the RAV4 hybrid is also decently powerful, with the 141 hp 2.0L Inline-4 engine and the 40 hp electric motor working in tandem to power it through.

Despite the majority of the compact SUV segment has the same powerhouse, the 2017 Nissan ROgue turns out to be the least powerful with 170 horses. On the other hand, Mazda CX-5 turns out to be the most powerful, all the while undercutting the Rogue by $400.

2017 Nissan Rogue 0-60 MPH and Acceleration

The 2017 Nissa Rogue sprints from 0-60 MPH in a rather loathsome 8.9 seconds, despite having the same engine configuration as that of the rest of the segment. It is also one of the lightest in the segment, which gives it no excuse to rob you off the thrill of astounding acceleration. Quarter-mile comes up in just about 17.0 seconds, a whole second slower than the Mazda CX-5.

Well due to its class-leading fuel economy, the Rogue pays dearly when it comes to power and acceleration which is not much different when it comes to its Hybrid Variant. Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, shows some impressive numbers as it has the best in class acceleration and some insane performance quotient to deliver from a rather decent 176 hp engine.

2017 Nissan Rogue Ride & Handling

The up and rising crossover SUVs are well known for their versatility, comfort, cargo space, and riding dynamics as they are compact, decently powered, sportier to an extent, and are fun to drive in a relative sense. Well, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is compact, has nice fuel efficiency, and is versatile but it lacks the sportiness, that one asks for from an SUV. The Rogue is more of an easy-going vehicle famous for its smooth, comfortable silent driving.

The Nissan Rogue is 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 offer sporty handling, in fact, it has a bit of a body roll. Nevertheless, bumps are rarely felt inside the Rogue, as it does have a four-wheel independent suspension. Other than that, the CVT unit is noisy and robs you of the fun, and the engine is laggy.

2017 Nissan Rogue Towing Capacity

The Nissan Rogue is a daily commute vehicle but it is also designed for off-roading and long-term adventures. Weighing at 3424 lbs, it has the capacity to tow about 1/3rd of 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 2017 Mazda CX-5 can tow twice as much as the Nissan with just 17 extra horses and that's pretty impressive.

2017 Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy


The one thing that made the Nissan Rogue stand out in this compact SUV segment is its best-in-class fuel economy. The 2017 Rogue, even with the 2.5L Inline-4 engine crunching numbers on the performance side, is able to deliver 26 MPG in the city and about 33 miles to the gallon out on the highway. Whereas the 2017 Rogue hybrid, on the other hand, delivers 33 MPG in the city and 35 on the highway with the FWD setup, whereas the AWD brings the number down by 1 MPG.

It also has a decent 14.5-gallon fuel tank, which when consumed is able to stretch up to 479 miles on the go. Now, onto the competition at hand, Mazda CX-5, even with the segment-best power figures, delivers decent fuel economy, which is quite impressive.

2017 Nissan Rogue Interior

2017 Nissan Rogue Seating & Comfort

The Nissan Rogue is well known for its best-in-class interior and comfort. On top of it, Nissan also found it in themselves to minutely update its interior space, with many more creature comforts. Placed in the compact crossover segment, the Nissan Rogue has by far one of the best interior spaces in this class, with premium touches all around. Following its segment longest 106.5-inch wheelbase, it only goes onto show that the Rogue has the most spacious cabin of them all.

Being able to seat 3 average-sized adults in the rear easily is not something the other SUVs can be proud of, but the Rogue does take pride in it. Moreover, it is not only spacious or comfortable but is versatile too, as it is a 5-seater 4-door compact SUV, which has a 6-way manual driver and 4-way manual passenger bucket seats with split-folding rear seats and a center armrest (foldable).

Second (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (In.)





The interiors are wrapped with cloth upholstery with lots of high-quality soft-touch materials, keeping controls within one hand's reach, which makes them accessible and a lot more functional. All the SUVs in this segment have more or less decent cabin space, and it becomes hard to nit-pick faults in them as they've been ultimately made to cater to the family itself.

2017 Nissan Rogue Infotainment System

Nissan updates the center console fully for the 2017 Rogue, and that includes the infotainment system. The Nissan Rogue's base trim comes standard with a 5.0-inch infotainment display with Bluetooth connectivity, but no Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well which is really disappointing. The upper trims of the Rogue now get a 7-inch system.

Well, Nissan has made a few upgrades in their infotainment system as it is more user-friendly and has better graphics than ever. It features a 4-speaker set, AM/FM stereo, satellite radio, Auxiliary Audio Input, and USB connection with Bluetooth connectivity. It might not be the best you can get at this price but for the daily commute, this is more than enough.

2017 Nissan Rogue Cargo Space

The 2017 Nissan Rogue has a decent 32.0 cu. ft of cargo space with the rear seats upright. This space increases to 70.0 cu. ft when the rear seats are folded down in a 60/40 manner. Coming to the hybrid Rogue on offer, despite the battery pack in place, Nissan offers an astonishing 31.8 cu.ft of cargo space with the rear seats up.

The Rogue has a wide cargo opening and has a multi-utility boot space area for your daily cargo purposes. The 2017 Rogue has also got a motion-activated liftgate, that makes loading and unloading of cargo much easier with much manual labor. Coming to the competition, the Honda CR-V has the best-in-class cargo space at 39.2 cu. ft.

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

The 2017 Nissan Rogue has been put through a major revamp this year which allows it to leave the Altima in its trail, as the best-selling Nissan this year. In fact, the Rogue SUV is the only one that has undergone a major upgrade amongst the other compact SUVs in the segment, which gives it a further advantage. Both the front and rear fascia gets redesigned as Nissan redesigns the front grill in a V-Motion theme, along with new LED DRLs around the corners.

Coming to the rear end, the 2017 Rogue gets a new lease to life, with a multifunction tailgate with motion-activated opening, and reworked taillights. Character lines along the side profile are now more visible than ever, and the same goes for chrome accents too. Standard 17 and 18-inch wheels are also offered now but with the addition of new 19-inch ones up for grabs, although only through the Platinum package.

When it comes to dimensions, the 2017 Rogue is one of the lightest of the lot, although that amounts to no use when it comes to outright acceleration prowess. It also has the largest wheelbase in the segment, which means that it also has a bigger cabin space compared to the competition. Moreover, the segment-best 7.8-inch ground clearance does make off-roading possible too.

2017 Nissan Rogue Safety


Nissan has always rendered its cars to the utmost safety prowess, and so the 2017 Rogue is one such example of that. The 2017 Nissan Rogue did not only get a spectacular 4/5 stars from NHTSA's crash tests but it was also honored with IIHS' "Top Safety Pick+" award, which deems it to be one of the safest vehicles out on the road. It is right up there with the other Toyota RAV4 compact SUV in terms of safety quotient. For 2017, Nissan has updated the safety feature list of the Rogue with the latest Safety Shield tech.

Some of the latest safety features included are-

  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Departure Prevention
  • Intelligent Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian detection

2017 Nissan Rogue Competition

2017 Toyota RAV4 vs 2017 Nissan Rogue

Perhaps one of the aptest competition to the 2017 Nissan Rogue, the Toyota RAV4 is set in its own way with the best in class acceleration figures, cabin space, safety quotient, and much more. The 6-speed automatic in the Rogue is much more versatile in putting the power down than the XTronic CVT in the RAV4.

In hindsight, the Toyota RAV4 is just $10 cheaper than the Nissan Rogue but is much more worthy to be chosen as a daily driver when compared to the Rogue.

2017 Mazda CX-5 vs 2017 Nissan Rogue

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is the most powerful offering in the whole compact SUV segment but fails to impress us with its uninspired driving dynamics. Being a daily driver, the CX-5 is more on the sportier side than being used for daily commute.

Nevertheless, coming to the looks of the SUV, the CX-5 is more aggressive with a sportier body and has a more premium interior. Now the choice boils down to the buyer themselves, as to what they'd prefer.

2017 Nissan Rogue Final Verdict

The 2017 Nissan Rogue is an ideal daily family commute SUV that is comfortable, is fuel-efficient, has a low cost of ownership, and is reliable as well as versatile, to say the least. For the starting price of $24,420, it is much more affordable than the majority of SUVs in the segment. It can help you cater to your daily chores, tow loads and also gets absolutely dirty when required. Disadvantages to the extent of low power figures and dismal acceleration numbers are the only thorn in the otherwise great deal.
