The redesign has made a huge difference between the two model vehicles. Here’s a little more about each vehicle to help you understand the differences.
Nissan Rogue 2013
OK, let’s start with the 2013 Nissan Rogue. The vehicle is a small crossover SUV that seats five passengers. Two trim levels are available in the 2013 model. The S trim comes with the standard features like the keyless entry, 16-inch wheels and folding side mirrors.
The SV trim has the standard features plus:
- 17-inch alloy wheels.
- Upgraded upholstery.
- Six-way power driver seat.
- Roof rails.
The 2013 interior is nothing too intriguing because it is like most crossovers in its class. It has the usual comfortable seats and high-quality materials. The seats don’t recline, but the front passenger seat does fold.
You have the option of all- or front- wheel drive powered by 2.5-liter four cylinder engine. The engine produces about 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. It is also fuel economy vehicle.
The 2013 Nissan Rogue does one better than the others in its class. It has great handling. The vehicle absorbs road imperfections like bumps and potholes with easy. You’ll be impressed by the control and steering.
The 2014 Nissan Rogue
To answer the question, the 2014 Nissan Rogue was fully redesigned. For instance, this model has three trim levels: SL, S and SV. Two-row seating is a standard feature. However, third-row seating is options in both the SV and S models. The S has features new features like:
- LED running lights
- Five-inch color infotainment display
- Review camera
- Height-adjustable driver seat
- Air conditioning with rear climate vents
The SV trim has features like six-speaker sound system, satellite radio and dual-zone automatic climate control. The last trim, the SL, has some standard features and other features such as voice controls and a 360-degree parking camera.
The SL has standard and package features. The features include leather upholstery, fog lights and heated front seats. There are optional packages too like the Family package and SL premium.
Another noticeable difference between the models is the interior design. It has padded armrests, soft materials and an elegant-looking dashboard. The front seats were inspired by NASA “zero gravity” design. Yes, NASA. So it is quite comfortable. The second row seats have greater versatility because they have a 40/20/40 spilt. A third row seat is optional.
You can choose the two-row Rogue because of the redesign. Thus, you will enjoy the divided cargo system which has adjustable back cargo that includes storage compartments, 18 various cargo-carrying spaces and multilevel shelving.
You may like the growl from the engine as you floor the gas pedal. This is different from the 2013 model. It is because of the CVT maintains a constant engine rpm. The engine is quiet enough that you can enjoy long trips.
As you can tell, the differences between the vehicle models are vast. From the extra room to the seats, you may prefer the latest Rogue model over any other.
