DESIGN / HIGHLIGHTS
The Nissan Rogue, which was completely redesigned for the 2014 model year, continues to challenge convention with bold emotive styling, a premium interior created with comfort and multi-tasking in mind, and an array of available affordable technologies. Rogue offers optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, along with exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex Seating System™ and Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System.
Since its launch, Rogue has been named to several “Best SUV,” “Best Family Car” and “Best Value” lists by leading consumer and automotive online media organizations, including one of 2015’s “10 Best All-wheel-drive Vehicles Under $25,000” by Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com. It was also named a 2015 “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for the 2015 model year*. Rogue remains Nissan’s second best-selling model in the U.S. lineup.
Three Well-Equipped Models: The 2016 Nissan Rogue comes in three well-equipped models, S, SV and SL, each in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
Along with the long list of standard features found on Rogue S, the Rogue SV adds 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, Nissan Intelligent Key™ with Push Button Ignition, 6-way power driver’s seat and power driver’s seat lumbar support. The Rogue SV also includes two additional audio system speakers, roof rails and Smart Auto on/off headlights.
Rogue SL models include Quick Comfort™ heated leather-appointed front seats, Bose® audio system with nine speakers, NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, 7.0-inch QVGA color touchscreen display, and NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
Rogue SL models also include standard Siri® Eyes Free, power liftgate, Around View® Monitor (AVM), 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights, heated outside mirrors and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Rogue’s dynamic exterior combines a premium, high-quality look and feel without compromising the functional aspects that are so important to owners in this class. Rogue offers a compact overall size and ample interior roominess, thanks to its long wheelbase and short front and rear overhangs – aided by details such as wide opening (77 degrees) rear doors for easier entry and exit to the rear passenger space.
Rogue’s bold, sharp bodylines offer a sporty and confident appearance, balancing its sleek style with an aggressive stance provided by large wheelwells and available 18-inch wheels and tires.
The coefficient of drag of 0.33 was created by optimizing the A-pillar section and outside mirror shapes, which also helps reduce wind noise. Turbulence behind the body has been reduced (versus the previous generation) through optimization of the rear roof spoiler, rear side spoiler and rear combination lights. Underbody aerodynamic devices include a rear bumper closing panel, fuel tank deflector, rear suspension cover, engine under cover and front tire deflectors.
Exterior highlights include standard halogen headlights with signature LED daytime running lights, which make a powerful visual statement. Also featured are body-color outside mirrors with available integrated turn signals and a rear spoiler. Also available are LED headlights, fog lights, privacy glass, roof rails, heated outside mirrors and power liftgate.
Rogue’s available power panoramic moonroof offers a wide view of the outside world through its extended length. The front glass panel slides and tilts, while the rear glass panel is fixed. When in the open position, the front panel slides under the fixed second panel.
Rogue’s comfortable, inviting interior offers unexpected roominess, along with a marriage of refined styling and premium comfort. Rogue features ample interior roominess and 70.0 cubic feet of cargo room (rear seats folded down). The front bucket seats are a special Zero Gravity design. Similar to the Nissan Altima sedan’s noteworthy front seats, the articulated seat shape provides continuous support from the pelvis to the chest, helping optimize comfort and reduce fatigue. The driver’s seat is 6-way adjustable, with available power adjustment including lumbar support, while the front passenger seat is 4-way adjustable.
The available Quick Comfort™ heated front seats are designed to immediately begin warming the body parts that are most sensitive to heat, such as the thighs and hips. Then, to maintain a warm, cozy feeling, the heater increases heating on body pressure points. Heated cloth front seats are available as part of the SV Premium Package. Leather-appointed seats are standard on SL models. With Rogue’s innovative EZ Flex® Seating System, every seat except the driver’s easily folds down. The front passenger seat folds rearwards, allowing transport of long items such as an 8-foot ladder when combined with the flat folding 40/20/40-split 2nd row seat.
The optional stadium-style, flat-fold 3rd row 50/50-split bench seat enhances Rogue’s outstanding passenger versatility. Rogue offers 37.9 inches of 2nd row legroom with its 9.0 inches of fore/aft adjustability.
The Rogue interior design also offers a range of smart storage and convenience solutions, with six front storage areas (five within the driver’s reach), two front cupholders and two front bottle holders.
Other standard interior features include standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges, front center console, power windows with driver’s auto up/down, 5.0-inch center meter color display (Advanced Driver Assist™ Display), air conditioning with microfilter and adjustable 2nd row vents, 4-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with auxiliary audio input jack, power door locks with auto-locking feature, LED maplights, USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, RearView Monitor, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth® and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant (compatible smartphone required). Also available are dual-zone automatic air conditioning, leather-appointed seats, and Bose® audio system with nine speakers. Two interior colors are offered: Charcoal and Almond.
Every 2016 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with an advanced Xtronic transmission with standard Sport Mode and Eco switches. The Eco setting helps customers easily realize the vehicle’s maximum fuel efficiency by changing acceleration pedal feel and illuminating an icon on the meter to inform customers they are in that mode.
With a 40 percent reduction (versus previous generation) in friction loss, along with an improved belt and pulley system, reduced oil churning friction, compact oil pump, new electronic control, wider gear ratio and other enhancements, the Xtronic transmission is approximately 10 percent more efficient than the previous-generation design.
Fuel economy is rated at 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined for front-wheel drive CVT-equipped models. Rogue AWD models are rated at 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.
Rogue also features Nissan’s suite of confidence-inspiring dynamic technologies with Active Trace Control, Active Engine Braking and Active Ride Control. The Active Trace Control system utilizes Rogue’s standard Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system to help improve cornering feel by automatically applying the brakes or smoothing engine torque characteristics while accelerating.
With Active Engine Braking, the CVT helps slow the Rogue as the driver brakes, resulting in less brake effort by the driver. Active Ride Control helps smooth out the drive by automatically applying the brakes and adjusting engine torque after the vehicle hits a bump, reducing the typical “head bobble” pitch for all occupants.
Safety and security features include the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) with dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt and occupant classification sensors, front seat-mounted side impact supplemental air bags, roof-mounted curtain side impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection, 3-point front and rear seatbelts, front seat belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters and adjustable upper anchors, and LATCH System (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren).
Every Rogue also offers child safety rear door locks, Zone Body construction featuring front and rear crumple zones and occupant zone, Nissan Immobilizer system and anti-theft alarm system, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with position monitoring and Nissan’s innovative, class-exclusive** Easy Fill Tire Alert.
CONNECTED TO MORE THAN JUST THE ROAD
NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps:
NissanConnect combines navigation, security, entertainment and ways to stay in touch in a single dash-mounted system designed to reduce distractions. It helps make every drive effortless, points you where you need to go, and keeps you connected the whole way there.
NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM:
With its suite of digital alerts and remote access features, available across three packages, NissanConnect Services is your direct link to personal security, convenience, and confidence.
Siri® Eyes Free:
Now you can access many of the features you love of your Siri® -equipped iPhone directly through your Rogue’s audio system. Send emails, set up calender entries and reminders, post to social media sites and more - all while keeping your hands on the wheel.
Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection:
The 2016 Nissan Rogue has an available class-exclusive Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection to help make backing-up and parking a breeze. The system works by converting the view from each of four wide-angle cameras (in the front, rear, and side mirrors) into a composite overhead view of your Rogue. Now you can see your vehicle’s position in relation to its surroundings on all sides, helping you to avoid not only the car behind or in front, but also helping you save your wheels from nasty curb damage.
SPACE, WITH A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
Sure, the 2016 Nissan Rogue looks good, but with room for up to seven it’s also practical. Pop the power liftgate and you’re opening up 70 cubic feet of versatile cargo space. Fold-down seats in both the 2nd- and 3rd-rows give you access to every inch of that space. And Rogue’s standard Divide-N-Hide® Cargo Solution makes short work of even tall loads.
Flexible Cargo Space:
You can fill it up with up to 70.0 cubic feet of cargo, drop every seat but the driver’s and transport longer items, or bring up to 6 passengers along for the ride.
EZ Flex Seating System:
The innovative EZ Flex Seating System provides the ultimate in cargo and passenger versatility. Every seat (other than the driver’s, of course) easily folds back for serious cargo space. When you need to fill it with passengers, the roomy 2nd-row slides and tilts for quick access to the available 3rd-row.
Wide Open Doors:
Even the doors were designed to make it easy to load—they open wide to 77°.
Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System:
The innovative Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System can be configured into a private storage space to help keep your valuables organized and out of sight, a lower deck to handle taller items, and an upper shelf for yet another type of cargo. With 18 different configurations, the storage possibilities are endless.
