2017 Nissan Rogue Review
The 2017 Nissan Rogue exudes some roguish good looks, but don’t let that audacious exterior fool you. Inside, the Rogue is comfortable and upmarket in ways that’ll appeal to mature drivers. Its driving mechanics can also be described as confident and never too aggressive. New for 2017 is a slightly updated exterior, some new interior elements, and a brand-new hybrid powertrain option for those who want their Rogue to be even thriftier on fuel.

2017 Nissan Rogue Exterior
Now, in its second generation, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is one of the sleekest and most handsome vehicles in its segment. A tall profile and expansive canopy give the vehicle excellent road position along with a mildly imposing stance. Soft flare curves balance out this moderate aggressiveness with stylish details that evoke motion even at a stop.
Nissan adjusted the front of the Rogue for 2017 to bring it in line with a “V-Motion” front grille design, which echoes other vehicles in the Nissan lineup, including the rugged Titan pickup. Altogether, the 2017 Rogue perfectly marries sports car svelteness with a brash SUV stance.
Nissan Rogue Interior
While the exterior of the Rogue is youthful, the interior provides mature drivers with comfortable appointments and high-quality materials. Soft, supportive seats keep drivers engaged with the road, and an intuitive dash system melds physical buttons with a user-friendly infotainment interface that keeps them engaged with their car’s most important functions.
Passengers will enjoy the roomy comfort of the Rogue, as well as its supple, quiet ride. The Rogue can also come equipped with a third-row seat to provide room for up to seven people. Cargo capacity behind the second row is great at 32 cubic feet, but an overall cargo capacity of 70 cubic feet is middle-of-the-road for the segment.
2017 Rogue Performance
