The 2019 Nissan Rogue: A Little Piece of Heaven

Comfortable, capable and just the right amount of sporty, the 2019 Nissan Rogue has been the car company’s best-selling model for several years. While the competition is stiff in the mid-size SUV vehicle class, the Rogue continues to stand out with its roomy interior, comfortable pricing, and an available hybrid powertrain.

For 2019, Nissan added standard automatic emergency braking, a rear door alert system and auto high beams. A lane-departure warning and intervention system and rear sonar are standard with the SV and SL models. Nissan made ProPilot Assist standard on the SL trim. Car buyers can add the feature to the SV trim model.

The Rogue is an especially popular vehicle because of its size, which is as close to being perfect as possible. The SUV’s interior feels spacious. It’s substantial on the road while being pleasantly compact, which means that it’s easy to park and doesn’t feel like a tank around town. The Rogue’s ride quality is top of the line, and the cabin is quiet even when drivers take it on the freeway. Visibility is exceptional, and the way that the Rogue handles the road is excellent.

Nissan decided to power the Rogue with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, one that produces 170 horsepower and 175-pound feet of torque. The vehicle is also available with a hybrid powertrain. It is a 2.0-liter engine that emits 176 horsepower. Both engines are paired to a CVT automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels on the front-wheel-drive models and all four wheels to the vehicles that have all-wheel drive.

The CVT transmission is available in three modes, which include the Normal, Sport and Eco. Those who chose the hybrid model will have a vehicle capable of operating solely on electric power at reduced speeds and for limited distances, making the overall fuel-economy numbers better. The fuel economy for the front-wheel-drive Rogue is 26 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. Those who purchase the all-wheel-drive model should expect to get 25 miles per gallon around town and 32 miles per gallon on the open road.

The exterior of the Rogue features powerful lines and an aggressive stance. Nissan is offering the SUV in a range of bold colors including orange, red and blue. The vehicle exhibits a young look. It has the notable Nissan “V-motion” grille and sharp taillights. Handy features like a motion-activated power rear liftgate make the Rouge seem swanky in a good way as do the LED headlights and panoramic glass moonroof.

The 2019 Nissan Rogue is highly affordable since it starts at around $25,000. Those who go with the highest trim level that features all the bells and whistles can expect to pay around $32,000. With its perfect size and affordable price tag, it’s no wonder that the Rouge is a vehicle that people want to own.
