5 AMAZING FEATURES OF THE 2018 NISSAN ROGUE YOU MUST SEE
The 2018 Rogue and Rogue Sport are compact SUVs available in three trims and all-wheel-drive and front-wheel-drive configurations. These are some of the features of the S, SV, and SL trims of these vehicles.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ROGUE AND ROGUE SPORT
The 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport is a separate but similar model from the Rogue. It’s also available in the S, SV, and SL trims, but there are a few key differences between these vehicles:
– An exclusive edition: The Rogue is available in an exclusive Midnight Edition. This option features special black 17-inch alloy wheels, black exterior accents, and black roof rails and crossbars. It comes with the same active safety features as the base S trim.
– Size: The Rogue and Rogue Sport are both compact SUVs, but the Rogue offers more interior space. It has 70 cubic feet of cargo volume compared to the Rogue Sport’s 66.1 cubic feet. There’s also more room in the interior overall, with the Rogue getting 105.8 cubic feet of space and the Rogue Sport getting 96 cubic feet.
– Power: The Rogue runs on a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that gets 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The Rogue Sport has a slightly smaller 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that gets 141 horsepower and 147 pound-feet of torque.
Fuel efficiency: The Rogue has the smaller engine, but it’s the more efficient of the two vehicles — though the difference is minor. The Rogue gets 26 miles per gallon in the city and 33 on the highway. The Rogue Sport gets 25 and 32, respectively.
All trims of the new 2018 Rogue and Rogue Sport come with several active safety features, including blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking on the base S model. The higher trims enjoy these features as well. Starting with the SL, drivers get intelligent cruise control and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
The Nissan Rogue has a towing capacity of 1,102 pounds. This amount is ideal for attaching a hitch and small trailer and taking some extra luggage or camping equipment out for a road trip.
NISSAN DOOR TO DOOR NAVIGATION
If you upgrade all the way to a premium SL Rogue or SL Rogue Sport, you’ll enjoy Nissan Door to Door Navigation With Premium Traffic as a standard feature. This technology displays real-time traffic information, 3D building graphics, and turn-by-turn directions onto the vehicle’s 7-inch touch screen. You can couple this with Nissan’s companion app, which provides additional directions to and from your vehicle.
Nissan’s compact SUVs feature several comfort and convenience features. For example, its zero-gravity seats are designed to help reduce driver and passenger fatigue. The seats also feature memory settings, which pair with Nissan Intelligent Key to save adjustments to the seat and mirror positions for each driver. The vehicles have heated front seats and heated steering wheels, as well. Leather-appointed seats come standard on the SL trim.
Though there are some differences between the Rogue and Rogue Sport, both offer a fun driving experience and lots of versatility for a compact SUV. Check out the S, SV, and SL trims and the exclusive Rogue Midnight Edition at Nissan of Roanoke Rapids.
