Nissan has always positioned the Rogue as a small crossover that provides the basic benefits of an SUV and a four-door sedan. The 2017 model year is particularly notable for a second-generation midcycle refresh—both in and out. The 2017 Nissan Rogue is split into four variants: S, SV, Midnight Edition, and SL.
The latest Nissan Rogue is designed and classified as a compact crossover SUV that typically seats up to five people. However, on the S and SV, there’s an available third-row seat referred to as the “Family Package,” which expands maximum occupancy to seven. That bumps the passenger volume from 105.8 cubic feet to 126.5 cubic feet. Cargo volume is measured at 39.3 cubic feet, which can be expanded to 70 cubic feet if you fold down the back seats. The front row consists of a 6-way manually adjustable driver’s seat and a 4-way manually adjustable passenger seat. And the second-row bench—officially referred to as the EZ FLEX Seating System—not only has folding-down capability, but can also recline and slide. True to its name, the Midnight Edition sports charcoal-black cloth seats. On the SV, heating ability is added on the front seats, and the driver’s seat gets 6-way power adjustability and power lumbar support. On the top-level SL, Nissan extends heating ability to the steering wheel, all seats are covered in leather, and a memory system is added for the driver’s side. At the base level, the Nissan Rogue’s standard comfort and convenience amenities include Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, remote keyless entry, cruise control, an Advanced Drive-Assist Display screen, Siri Eyes Free for iOS voice activation, and a four-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with a 5-inch color display and three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio. At the SV level, the Rogue also gets dual-zone automatic climate control, a smart key system (Nissan Intelligent Key) with push-button engine start, remote engine start, and two additional speakers. The luxury-oriented SL tops out with hands-free text messaging, a 360-degree camera (in place of the rearview one), HomeLink for remote-controlling garage doors, a nine-speaker Bose premium audio system (with speed-sensitive volume control) that replaces the four- or six-speaker set-up, and NissanConnect in-car connectivity that includes a 7-inch touchscreen voice-activated navigation with three-month trial subscriptions to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue gets an exterior refresh that includes restyled headlights and taillights. At the base level, the crossover gets halogen headlights and LED taillights, with the former getting LED daytime running lights to increase visibility to other drivers. However, if you go with the SV trim or higher, the headlights have auto turn on/off ability, and fog lights are added on the SL. Other base-level standard exterior features include power side mirrors (painted black on the Midnight Edition) and a rear spoiler. Heating capability and turn-signal indicators are added on the SV, Midnight Edition, and SL side mirrors; they also get roof rails (painted black on the Midnight Edition). The SL is the only one with a motion-activated liftgate and high beam assist on the headlights. Nissan fits the S with 17-inch steel wheels; 17-inch aluminum ones go on the SV, and the SL gets 18s. Making the Midnight Edition even more unique are its black splash guards, rear bumper protector, illuminated kick plate, and exclusive Midnight Edition-badged black 17-inch aluminum wheels.
The latest Nissan Rogue uses a MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension with stabilizer bars and active ride control for cushioning you against bumps and other road imperfections. Vehicle speed-sensitive power steering keeps handling sharp and precise. And four-wheel anti-lock vented disc brakes—complete with brake assist, active trace control, active engine control, and electronic brake-force distribution, and anti-lock braking ability—fully optimize stopping ability.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is powered by the QR25DE, which is a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. It is linked to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which relies on a range of gear rations, rather than traditional gear shifting, for a smoother driving experience. Accompanying the CVT is a drive mode selector that consists of Eco (for boosting fuel efficiency) and Sport (for a firmer, more exciting driving feel). Although front-wheel drive is standard, you can opt for an all-wheel drivetrain for better traction performance.
The new Nissan Rogue comes with a host of standard safety features that includes hill start assist; electronic stability and traction control; an anti-theft system; knee bolsters; and dual front impact, dual side impact, and dual side curtain airbags. On the SL, Nissan adds blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and moving object detection.
