What Was Said About the Nissan Rogue
Cars.com has selected the redesigned 2017 Nissan Rogue crossover as its “2017 Family Car of the Year.” It is the second year in a row that Rogue, Nissan’s best-selling model in 2016, has won the honor. The award was announced in conjunction with the North American International Auto Show. Among the family-oriented features on the new Rogue are available 3-row/7-passenger seating and exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.
The new Rogue has been updated with fresh exterior and interior treatments, an expanded suite of available Nissan Safety Shield technologies including available Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection1, and the first-ever Rogue Hybrid model.
“Rogue has not only jumped into the top sales spot in the Nissan lineup, it is also becoming one of the most awarded vehicles in Nissan history,” said Christian Meunier, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan North America, Inc.; chairman, Nissan Canada. “We are honored by the recognition by the editors of Cars.com – it’s a great way to kick off the new year.”
In selecting Rogue as their 2017 Family Car of the Year, the Cars.com editorial staff wrote:
“Flexibility is key when it comes to managing family life – from road trips to school carpools, the Rogue is ready. If you need more seating capacity than what you’d find in a two-row small SUV, but aren’t ready to make the leap to a full-size model, the Rogue is worth a look. With its optional third row, it’s a versatile choice for shoppers who need an SUV that can accommodate a large family at a low price. It’s not just about people, however; two-row versions have a handy cargo-management system that helps separate and organize the cargo area.”
The editors also praised Rogue for its refined road manners and efficient 29 mpg combined city/highway fuel economy (non-hybrid front-wheel drive model).
“If that’s not good enough, a hybrid model joins the lineup this year. Thoughtful safety features like an around-view camera system and emergency braking with a pedestrian-detection function add peace of mind. Families expect a lot from their vehicles, and the versatile, affordable and efficient Rogue delivers,”
If this isn’t reason enough to check out Nissan, I don’t know what is! Congrats Nissan! May 2018 be even better for you!
