2017 Nissan Rogue configurations
The 2017 Nissan Rogue is a five-passenger compact crossover SUV that is available in three main trim levels: S, SV and SL. Regular Rogues come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (170 horsepower, 175 pound-feet of torque) paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is available as an option.The Nissan Rogue Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder along with an electric motor (176 hp combined output) and is offered in front- or all-wheel drive. It is only available in SL and SV trims.
Standard feature highlights for the Rogue S include 17-inch steel wheels, cloth upholstery, sliding and reclining 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, a clever cargo management system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, a 5-inch infotainment display and a four-speaker CD player with USB input and satellite radio.
The SV trim adds alloy wheels, roof rails, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, remote ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a six-way power driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector, and a six-speaker audio system. The Midnight Edition, available on on the SV, adds blacked-out body pieces such as 17-inch wheels, mirror caps, black splash guards, rear bumper protector, and illuminated kick plates, as well as blacked-out roof rails and crossbars and Midnight Edition specific floor mats.
The top-of-the-line SL trim includes 18-inch wheels, automatic high beams, foglights, a hands-free power liftgate, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory functions, a universal garage door opener, a 7-inch touchscreen, a surround-view camera system, a navigation system, Siri Eyes Free iPhone control, Nissan Connect emergency and convenience telematics, and a nine-speaker Bose audio system.
Some of the above features are available on the S and SV trims as options. Other notable add-ons include a third row of seats for the S and SV trims (increasing passenger capacity to seven) and a panoramic sunroof for the SV and SL. The SL trim is also eligible for adaptive cruise control with forward collision mitigation, lane keeping assist, and a new SL Premium Reserve package that spruces up the interior with premium quilted leather upholstery.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2014 Nissan Rogue SL (2.5L inline-4 | CVT automatic | AWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Nissan Rogue has had revisions, including the addition of more sound insulation. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Nissan Rogue.

The 2017 Nissan Rogue makes a great first impression. It's attractive and less utilitarian in appearance than many rivals, with overall proportions that suggest a bigger, more premium vehicle. Its cabin is also appealing to look at, possessing a more carlike design and a generally upscale vibe. A quick peak into the back will reveal one of the most spacious passenger and cargo areas in its segment — it's big enough that it can even be fitted with a kid-friendly third row.
The Rogue checks off a lot of boxes — enough so that it was the 10th best-selling vehicle in the United States last year. Only one engine and transmission option is available, and advanced safety features are only available on upper trims, but buyers have still found plenty to recommend the Rogue.
All trims of the 2017 Nissan Rogue receive a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is better than most in the class. A front-wheel-drive Rogue achieves 29 mpg combined (26 city/33 highway) while an all-wheel-drive model drops to 27 mph combined. New for 2017 is the Nissan Rogue Hybrid, which returns 34 mpg combined (33 city/35 highway) with front-wheel drive — the AWD hybrid has a minor 1 mpg combined penalty.
The Rogue is available in three trim levels: S, SV and SL. Each is competitively equipped and priced, and you should find its available features list to be equally robust as those of its rivals. One possible exception would be in the area of advanced safety features, which are split up depending on trim level with certain important features such as lane departure warning and forward collision automatic braking available only as an option on the SL.
Other optional upgrades include remote ignition, dual-zone climate control, a surround-view camera system, Siri Eyes Free and a Bose audio system. Roof rails and a hands-free power liftgate are helpful practical upgrades. Buyers living in colder climates will appreciate the optional heated seats and steering wheel, as well as the heated side mirrors. The Rogue is also capable of light off-roading, thanks to a locking center differential and hill descent control on the AWD trims.
A great many people have decided to take a Rogue home; good fuel efficiency and a comfortable ride coupled with the practicality of an SUV make for an appealing package. Edmunds can help you figure out which 2017 Nissan Rogue is right for you and help make sure you get the best price.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Nissan Rogue?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
