2017 Nissan Rogue Review
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is a great-looking compact crossover SUV that charms and shovels on the value. Its interior is extremely plush for its class, helped along by changes for 2017 that include a new steering wheel and an improved dashboard layout. Nissan also modified the Rogue’s exterior for 2017 to put it visually closer in line with other Nissan trucks and cars.
Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton drivers can see these changes, along with the general quality of the 2017 Rogue, by taking one for a test drive at Nissan 24 in Brockton. They can also read our review below to learn more about what makes the Rogue so great.
2017 Nissan Rogue Exterior
The 2017 Nissan Rogue makes ample use of its tall size to craft stocky, SUV-like proportions. At the same time, it offers sports car-like sultriness through gently sculpted curves. These curves are most pronounced on the hood shape and along the fender flares, but they travel all throughout the vehicle below its bottom canopy line.
The canopy itself has aggressively angled C pillars; those pillars, along with a comely spoiler, give the Rogue one of the most modern and unique profiles in its segment (appropriate enough, considering the name). Up front, a redesigned-for-2017 fascia adds Nissan’s now-characteristic “V Motion” grille shape while also adding more surface geometry to the headlight wells and front bumper.
Altogether, the Rogue is not only one of the best looking vehicles in its class, but one of the best looking non-luxury cars on the road, period.
Nissan Rogue Interior
Drivers looking for a great deal of value can find it inside the Rogue’s roomy, well-appointed cabin. Soft materials and high-quality trims banish all thoughts of cheap plastic. Soft, supportive seats provide comfort even after extended driving sessions using ergonomics technology that Nissan dubs “Zero Gravity” chairs.
A clean-looking dashboard presents itself readily to the driver, who can access most of the vehicle’s necessary functions through tactile switches and buttons. Other functions are controlled via the Rogue’s touchscreen infotainment system, which is well designed and intuitive.
Those with big families can make use of the optional third row to seat up to seven, but small kids may be the only ones who wish to ride back there for more than a short trip, considering the Rogue’s modest size in the rear.
With two rows, Rogue owners get a relatively large 39.3 cubic feet of rearward cargo space.
Something else worth mentioning: Comfort in the Rogue comes not just from the high-quality interior materials, but also from the vehicle’s supple ride and quiet performance.
2017 Nissan Rogue Performance
The 2017 Nissan Rogue offers two platform choices: a 170 horsepower 2.5L 4-cylinder, and a 176-horsepower hybrid powertrain using a 2.0L 4-cylinder mated to a 30kw electric motor.
Handling is relaxed and responsive, and the suspension readily absorbs all bumps and divots for a comfortable ride.
Safety Features for 2017
The 2016 Nissan Rogue earned a Top Safety Pick accolade from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The new Nissan Rogue also provides optional safety features like the Surround-View Camera, and active safety features like Forward Emergency Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Pedestrian Detection.
