2015 Nissan Rogue is the second generation Rogue that is characterized by a smoother design and extended dimensions. It is available in three trims – S, SV, and SL. It competes with Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
Exterior and Interior
It is a 4-door SUV with a wheelbase of 106.5 inches. It is 182.3 inches long, 72.4 inches wide and 67.5 inches high. Curb weight is 3605 pounds. You can choose from exterior colors like brilliant silver, Sahara sun, super black, pearl white and midnight jade. This version has Arctic Blue Metallic instead of Graphite blue. In comparison to its predecessor, this model has a more elegant design. It is striking because of the eye-catching, metal trim bordering of the side-windows, LED daytime running lights, rear spoiler and taillights with polished looks. The V-shaped grille having floating Nissan badge is outstanding. The aerodynamic design fights air resistance and helps to get a better mileage.
The Nissan impression is everywhere in the interior of Rogue. Top-quality material that are soft and smooth to the touch, brightly-lit instrumentation, and very comfortable front seats make it a class apart. The legroom and headroom for the front seat are quite ample making the cabin very encouraging for tall drivers. The rear seat legroom is more spacious than it is in the earlier versions. Two-row seating is standard which can be extended to make a 3-row seating too. Cargo space offered by Rogue is satisfactory. Standard equipment includes rearview monitor, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, text message assistant, and 4-speaker audio/video system that has a 5-inch color display. Storage has been taken to a new height with 18 ways in which you can stack your groceries and other items. The Around View monitor allows you to use the external cameras for getting a clearer picture of the surrounding areas for managing narrow busy areas very smoothly.
