2014 Nissan Rogue: LED Headlights
May 2, 2014
We've written a few updates already about the LED headlights on our long-term Acura MDX. But going largely unnoticed so far is that our 2014 Nissan Rogue has them, too.
The LED headlights are an optional feature that comes as part of the SL trim level's Premium package. This is the only way to get them, and it's the only headlight upgrade offered on the Rogue. (Other features of the Premium package include the panoramic sunroof and a bunch of safety features: forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and moving object detection.)
That package has an MSRP of $1,990. Is it worth it? Well, I do like these LED headlights. They project a bright and crisp pattern and should be a big step up from the regular halogen lights. Plus, some competitors, like the Honda CR-V, don't offer an optional light upgrade at all.
I will note, however, that there doesn't seem to be a very noticeable performance difference between these and what you typically get from xenon headlights.
