2014 Nissan Rogue: Easy To Park
April 17, 2014
The bird's eye view parking camera is starting to become mainstream now and for good reason. Of all the parking aids that have been added to modern cars, it's one of the most useful.
There's no doubt that the backup camera is a big help when easing into a space. No more "feeling" around for that bumper behind you.
But the bird's eye view camera adds the element of overall positioning to the mix, an upgrade that goes a long way toward helping to determine if you're really going to be able to squeeze into that tight parking spot. Granted, drivers should be able to accomplish this on their own without the need of visual aids, but in the real world that is rarely the case. And even if you can parallel park with the best of them, it never hurts to have a second set of eyes.
On the 2014 Nissan Rogue, this feature comes standard on the SL. It's optional on the SV, but not available on the base S model.
