The 2018 Nissan Rogue remains one of the most popular compact SUVs that is packed full of personality and performance at a budget-friendly price point. You are able to seat up to 5 inside while opting for fun eye-catching paint colors including Caspian Blue or Monarch Orange to help your ride stand out from the crowd. Meanwhile, there is plenty of space for backpacks and sports equipment with the rear seat up or fold it down to open up a cavernous 70 cubic feet for oversized packages. The available All-around View monitor helps you see around corners and avoid accidents. Look for plenty of conveniences that turn this suburban-ready vehicle into the car you look forward to driving every day, whether it is to the office or picking up the kids at the office.

Trims & Features

The Rogue is available in four trims, the S, SV, SL, and a Midnight Edition. However, both the SV and the SL are also available as a hybrid which helps you extend your daily maintenance costs. In the S you will find the Nissan Connect system with Bluetooth technology that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Divide N’ Hide cargo management system helps you secure valuables out of sight while maintaining the function of larger cargo space. A rearview camera provides a clear view of parking spots. In the SV your style steps up to 17-inch alloy wheels and provides access using the Intelligent Key system with push-button start. The motion-activated liftgate and automatic climate controls offer extra conveniences. The Midnight Edition is the SV with black roof rails, black 17-inch alloy wheels, exterior trim and black heated side mirrors with an integrated turn signal. Finally, the SL features navigation, intelligent cruise control, leather-appointed seats, and 3 months of SiriusXM Traffic and TraveL Link.

Performance

But what comes under the hood? The 2018 Nissan Rogue has plenty of punch to propel you through your daily errands starting with the 2.5L dual overhead-cam 4-cylinder engine that offers up 170 horsepower and achieves 31 mpg highway. When you go hybrid in the SV or SL, you will pay an extra couple grand to access the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine combined with 30 kW electric motor that uses Idle Stop/Auto Start technology to deliver 176 horsepower and a combined 32 mpg. Take your choice between front-wheel or intelligent all-wheel drive on all models while the intelligent continuously variable transmission with Shiftronic maintains smooth shifts or leaves the control in your hands with the touch of a button.

Safety

Nissan stepped up this year to stay in step with safety advances offered by other manufacturers on all their most popular vehicles. Each 2018 Rogue comes equipped with blind spot detection, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking. The tire-pressure monitoring system includes the easy-fill alert that tells you which tire needs the air before it goes entirely flat. Look at a variety of other safety features on the SL including intelligent cruise control, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, and lane departure prevention.

When hunting for an SUV that is designed to surpass your expectations of a compact vehicle, the 2018 Nissan Rogue will surprise you with all of the room and added function it provides inside and out.
