2014 Nissan Rogue Compact SUV: All You Need To Know

Talking in context of the North American market, if we are considering the most complete family SUVs, Nissan Rogue has to be on the list. It was first introduced in 2008, the Rogue emerged as a key player in the competitive compact SUV market. For the 2014 model year, Nissan has completely redesigned the Rogue giving it a refreshingly new look over its predecessor.

For the first time, this year onwards the Rogue will be available with an optional 3rd row passenger seat. Aside from the optional 3rd row other interiors highlights include Nissan innovative EZ Flex seating System, class-exclusive Divide-N-Hide Cargo System that provides up to 18 different variations to manage space for the cargo and occupants and more.

The exterior of the car is comprehensively redesigned and now offers a premium, high quality look. Compared to the previous generation the new Rogue features a 0.6 inch longer wheelbase, a 1.2 inch taller height and a 1.5 inch shorter front overhang and the rear doors now open wider at 77 degrees for easier entry and exit.

For improved aerodynamics the car comes with Nissan-first muffler spoiler, a rear bumper closing panel, fuel tank deflector, rear suspension cover, engine under cover and front tire deflectors. Other exterior highlights include standard halogen headlights with signature LED daytime running lights, body-color outside mirrors, rear spoiler, optional LED headlights with auto levelizer, roof rails, heated outside mirrors, fog lights, privacy glass, power liftgate, power panoramic moonroof and more.

Coming back to the interior there are plenty of interesting features such as Advanced Driver Assist Display, air conditioning with microfilter and class-exclusive adjustable 2nd row vents, 4-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with AUX and USB connectivity, LED maplights, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, and more. Optional features include dual-zone automatic air conditioning, leather-appointed seats and a Bose audio system with nine speakers.

Every Nissan Rogue is powered by a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 170 horsepower and 75 lb-ft of peak torque which apparently is best in its class. The engine comes mated to a next-generation Xtronic CVT featuring Sport Mode switch and is 10 percent more efficient than the previous generation. The new Rogue is improved in terms of fuel economy too – 33 mph highway for front wheel drive CVT models, 26 mpg in city. Rogue all wheel drive models offer 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.

The list of driving aids is just as interesting with features like Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking, Active Ride Control, Traction Control System (TCS), Hill Start Assist etc.
