At first glance, the 2016 Nissan Rogue looks like an attractive and sporty crossover with performance appeal, but when you get inside, you realize this sleek, stylish vehicle is made to check all the boxes when it comes to family-friendly transportation, allowing parents to have the best of both worlds in their garage. A comfortable, roomy interior with plenty of storage space pairs well with a stiff suspension that offers a responsive and enjoyable ride, which feels easygoing and allows the passengers -- up to seven of them -- to enjoy all the premium conveniences and luxuries that the Nissan Rogue offers.
The Rogue recently entered a new generation two years ago in 2014, giving it a fresher and more contemporary vibe than a lot of the competition, especially considering that it has one of the more spacious interior volumes in its class. The 2016 model year also brings a few new things to the table, including the latest safety systems, as well as a number of new infotainment technologies as the market makes a shift towards smarter and more innovative cars.
The interior overall is filled with high-end comfort and is designed to be just as attractive on the inside as it is on the outside. The control panel is intuitive and easy to understand, there’s plenty of cargo space, and there’s an option of a third row of seating. In the compact crossover class, having a roomy third row is an unusual and welcome offering. Plus, with infotainment features like the NissanConnect telematics system and Siri EyesFree, drivers are more tuned into the outside world than ever before.
An array of available packages are offered too, including cosmetic upgrades and new cutting-edge safety systems to give parents an added layer of security when hauling their family around in the 2016 Nissan Rogue. Coupled with great fuel economy, the Rogue has a little something for everyone without sacrificing anything.
