Nissan Rogue Hybrid Offers Good Value



Buyers would be hard pressed to find a hybrid crossover with as much to offer as the Nissan Rogue Hybrid and at such a low premium compared to its gas powered sibling.

Of course thereís the fuel savings and weíll get into that later, but acceleration for the Motor Trend tested SL AWD model clocked in a 0-60mph time of 9.1 seconds. Thatís close to the nonhybrid versionís time of 9 seconds, and though some may scoff at how slow it seems, for those who are trading up from older SUVs the Rogue Hybrid will feel fine.

On the inside, the Rouge has a good 27.3 cubic feet of cargo space though some may find the load floor a bit high with the Divide-N-Hide cargo floor. Nissan makes up for it by giving us spacious and vented second row seats, the most comfortable door-mounted elbow rests in its price range, and cozy front seats.

Then thereís the manufacturer provided EPA-rating of 31/34 mpg city/highway for the AWD trim and 33/35 mpg for the front-drive Rouge Hybrid, which is a substantial improvement compared to the nonhybrid versions. Using a $150,000 gas analyzer to get some real-world mpg numbers, Motor Trend found those numbers to be slightly inaccurate as their Rogue Hybrid AWD test vehicle results were 27.8 mpg city and 29.9 mpg highway.

Still, the 2017 Rogue Hybrid offers good value at about $1,000 more than its gas equivalent.

With how nice the Rouge looks, I'd be tempted to go for the hybrid model for the longer range per gallon. And even better if they come out with more special editions like they did for the Star War movie.

Just the fact its a smaller SUV with a hybrid is hard to go away from, unless you like Toyota and find that to be appealing which to me is to an extent but for years now i have built confidence in the Rogue.
Is anyone else here also interested in a rival hybrid or just the Rogue alone?

There's the Kia Niro hybrid, but it doesn't have the same interior space as the Rogue and it's very keen on switching to engine power instead of going electric only.

The whole fact there has been a major rise in CUV ownership might be pointing to the other fact that owners these days dont need as much space as they used to. For the majority that's the case. The same follows when it comes to living space.

But there's still a certain space expectation with crossovers that some models meet better than others. That's where the Rouge comes in and with some hyper-milling, perhaps owners can hit the 33/35 mpg mark.
