The All-new Nissan Rogue - not a Rogue One After All

By: Jay Sanders

For the small family who is planning to acquire just the right vehicle as they embark on another across-the-country trip, the market offers them a variety of choices for crossovers and SUVs. The Japanese automaker Nissan alone recommends its all-new compact crossover, Nissan Rogue.

Now, don't allow the name to paint an unkind image on your mind. If you are going to check it out personally, you'll definitely find it smart and stylish and very much far from its given name. After all, Nissan is renowned for revolutionizing the style of its vehicles, and their new crossover will certainly not be a disappointment.

Although it looks a lot like Murano, the very first crossover introduced by Nissan in the United States in 2003, the five-door Rogue still has its own identity and features that separate it from the crowd and from the Murano, itself.

It is one, powerful crossover with a praiseworthy driving dynamics that runs in a 170-hp (130kW) 2.5L (2448 cc) four cylinder QR25DE engine (other Nissan models that have this kind of engine are the Sentra, Altima and Frontier) and on an amazing Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) Technology (that boost the general engineering of the ride, improves fuel economy plus provides a pleasant transition in gearing). Other likeable, exciting features of this crossover (it also comes in a range of colors) are the following:

&bull??? height-adjustable driver seat (ladies will surely like this specific feature)

&bull??? options for a four-wheel drive facility

&bull??? 60/40 split, fold-down rear seats (ideal for those large space needs for baggage and other stuffs)

&bull??? power windows and power door locks

&bull??? auxiliary audio jack

&bull??? a Bose audio system with four speakers and CD player

&bull??? a satellite radio

&bull??? a 12v plugs for charging mobile phones and for use in other electronic gadgets

&bull??? air conditioning with in-cabin micro-filter

&bull??? remote keyless entry system (Nissan's Intelligent Key)

&bull??? six airbags, Nissan Safety Shield and Snug Kids feature (for the children's safety)

&bull??? and an anti-theft system (talk about over-all security while driving with your family or friends)

&bull??? ample cockpit storage

&bull??? a Bluetooth hands-free phone

&bull??? partition nets and rear divider

&bull??? paddle shifters mounted on the wheels (which other vehicles don't have)

So, this is no plain, bland, small crossover; rather, a visually appealing crossover with stylish interiors, superb engine, commendable features including complimentary safety features, and guaranteed comfort driving.

The Rogue's starting price comes at an affordable and reasonable $20,790 (a couple thousand dollars less than the base price offer for the Chevrolet Equinox) and every single penny that will go with it will prove to be a very wise investment.

Go on and drive a Nissan Rogue today!
