The roads today are dominated by crossover vehicles. There’s a good reason for that. People want the feeling of driving a sedan with the ride-height and carrying capacity of an SUV. They want a solid compromise, but sometimes compromise goes too far—and you end up driving what feels like a fat hatchback on stilts.

In contrast, the 2016 Nissan Rogue lays claim to a unique space in the segment. This is Nissan’s way of declaring independence from the everyman crossover, and it could be your declaration too. Drive a Rogue to experience a refreshing combo of performance, versatility, and safety that other brands can’t match.

Don’t wait around to find out what you’ve been missing.

Go Rogue with Great Gas Mileage and Intelligent Traction

Whether you select the S, SV, or SVL trim level, the Rogue specs out with a 170 horsepower 4-cylinder engine and Nissan’s Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). A CVT is a streamlined transmission with fully variable gear ratios, which means no matter what, when you step on the gas pedal, you’re getting ideal power output.

The CVT is also a major boost to efficiency. With optimum throttle response, the engine doesn’t waste effort or gasoline. The Rogue’s EPA numbers speak for themselves: 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Plus, you can find the limits of this crossover’s range with a standard Eco mode.

Of course the ability to go far doesn’t mean much without the ability to go anywhere, and that’s what Nissan’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive (AWD) accomplishes. This available powertrain endows the Rogue with unquestionable traction. The intelligent system can detect if you’re cornering or cruising, as well as if you’re on pavement or driving on a less certain substance. It will adjust based on all of these factors and can recover any traction lost by one wheel with the other three. When you go Rogue, you go with confidence.

Interior Space for 7 Passengers or 70 cu. ft. of Cargo

In our customers’ rave reviews of the Rogue, they always mention how much they love the flexible interior space. With available third row seating, it’s a big enough deal that a small crossover like this one can seat 7 people. That’s out of the ordinary for vehicles in this class, but with 3 rows, the Rogue makes it look easy.

The second row also uses Nissan’s EZ Flex™ Seating System, which adds versatility thanks to sliding and reclining bench seats. Even with the second row in its upright position, there’s still 39.3 cu. ft. of cargo space in the back, which is more space than you’d get in a Ford Escape.

The only thing more exciting than a car full of your friends and family is seeing how much you can fit in the back of the Rogue. Nissan’s Divide-N-Hide® cargo system gives you a number of storage compartments to work with beneath the floor. If you’ve got stuff that you always have in your car no matter what, stow them away where they won’t roll around and cause clutter.

With 18 possible cargo configurations, this system also makes it easy for the Rogue to accommodate all kinds of luggage, be it short, tall, long, or wide.

Advanced Safety Second to None

We’re proud to sell a brand like Nissan that is so dedicated to the safety of its customers. The three levels of Nissan’s Safety Shield technologies are enough to give you extra confidence behind the wheel of a Rogue.

The Safety Shield begins with basic safety measures that protect you and your passengers. In the worst case scenario, an advanced air bag system consisting of dual-stage, side-impact, and side-curtain airbags. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system is also supported in the Rogue’s second row, so you can give your little ones the safest restraint possible.

On the next step up, the Rogue responds to changing road conditions with systems designed to keep you in control. Traction Control, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Antilock Brakes, and Electronic Brake-force Distribution work together to keep you on firm footing and to bring you to a controlled stop if you have to brake abruptly.

Finally, available driver assistance features monitor the road and help you avoid trouble in the first place. The Rogue is the only vehicle in its class that offers Blind Spot Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, and Moving Object Detection. It’s also available with Nissan’s Around View® camera system, which gives you a virtual 360-degree view to help you navigate tight spaces.

You might be thinking to yourself “With technology like that, they should give the Rogue some recognition.” You’re absolutely right, and the IIHS did just that, naming the 2016 Rogue a Top Safety Pick.
