2014 Nissan Rogue: 360-Degree Parking Camera
March 13, 2014
Our 2014 Nissan Rogue is the highest trim level available, known as SL. Standard on the SL (optional otherwise) is a 360-degree parking camera that is pretty rare in this class of vehicle. Rearview cameras are standard on rivals like the 2014 Honda CR-V and Ford Escape, but a 360-degree camera (or Around View Monitor, as Nissan calls it) isn't even on the options list for most competitors.
Combined with a crisp display and a logical control layout, the 360-degree camera helps the Rogue's interior feel classy and modern. Parallel parking is often the only option in Los Angeles (as in any big city), and technology like this makes any car much more versatile.
The 360-degree camera on the Rogue allows me to see items like tow hitches, passing traffic and curbs, and subsequently avoid them. With multi-angle cameras like this on more vehicles, there'd likely be fewer dented bumpers and curb-damaged wheels all-around.
