Nissan makes only minor changes to its compact Rogue SUV for 2016. NissanConnect and Siri Eyes-Free are added to the Rogue SL, while the Rogue S can be equipped with a new Appearance Package. Forward Emergency Braking is now available on the SL trim.
Still fresh off last-year's revamp, the 2015 Rogue's minimal updates include an Eco mode, heated front seats in the SV Premium Package, and the Arctic Blue Metallic exterior color that replaces Graphite Blue.
About Nissan Rogue
2016 Nissan Rogue compact-
crossoverSUV is an intriguing prospect. Unlike the
Honda CR-V and
Toyota RAV4, the Rogue offers a slightly different footprint with an available, albeit cramped, 3rd-row seat. A single engine choice isn’t the most powerful in this class, but the Rogue’s 2.5-liter 4-cylinder delivers an impressive 33 mpg. The Rogue’s true advantage lies in its smooth ride and upscale interior, plus its lengthy list of high-tech infotainment and safety features. Priced above a comparably equipped
Hyundai Tucson but below the
Ford Escape and
GMC Terrain, the Rogue hits the sweet spot for most buyers. However, the Rogue lacks the fun-to-drive attitude found with the
Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape and VW Tiguan.
