With its pleasant road manners, versatile interior storage, smooth highway ride, and user-friendly tech options, the new 2017 Nissan Rogue is a strong contender in the small crossover SUV segment. Nevertheless, its desirability is greatly diminished by the subpar performance of its engine relative to what the competition offers. The Nissan Rogue USA release date should be expected mid-2017.
The Rogue, despite it obvious shortcomings, offers plenty of pleasantries inside and out. Some of the likable aspects include its ability to offer a spacious seating capacity for up to seven passengers. Standard features are laudable, as is the quality of the cabin. The 2017 Nissan Rogue interior space is also another noteworthy aspect the vehicle boasts of. Throw in seventy cubic feet of cargo space and you’ve got yourself a functional space to stow away your items for an occasional weekend adventure (misadventure).
On the flipside, though, the Rogue doesn’t offer the kind of driver-engagement one would expect from a vehicle in such a segment. The CVT is a hogwash, as is the rear visibility. That said, it’d be therefore judicious for anyone shopping in this class to look at what other alternatives offer before deciding on the Rogue.
Some of Rogue’s alternatives include the Jeep Cherokee, 2017 Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 2017, Kia Sorento, and Subaru Forester for 2017. Although news of the 2017 Kia Sportage redesign may overshadow the 2017 Kia Sorento changes, the Sorento is set to be offered with additional safety features and driver aids.
The Honda CR-V price starts from an MSRP of around $23,745. For that amount you get exceptional fuel economy ratings, appealing technology and safety features, abundant passenger and cargo volume, and a feature-rich cabin. The Honda CR-V release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.
The 2017 Subaru Forester redesign has brought with it tons of updates and refreshments including the next-gen Eyesight system, more driver assist technology, new wheel designs, an increase in the base price, and a revised color palette. The 2017 Subaru Forester price starts from $22,500. Its release date hasn’t been confirmed yet but we expect the vehicle to go for sale before this fall as a 2017 year model.

Three trims are offered for the 2017 Nissan Rogue: SV, SL, and S. relations between the U.S Rogue and the Japan-market X-Trail Hybrid are quite substantial.
