Last year, Nissan sold almost 330,000 Rogues in the U.S., making it by far the brand's most popular model. The 2017 Nissan Rogue is the 1st Rogue to receive an electrified powertrain. It is the 3rd smallest SUV in the automaker's lineup. The crossover is larger and more expensive than the Juke and new Rogue Sport but smaller and more affordable than the Murano, Pathfinder, and Armada. The Murano Hybrid is the only other hybrid vehicle in Nissan's lineup.
Rogue Hybrid achieves an EPA-rated 33/35 mpg city/highway (FWD) and 31/34 mpg for the all-wheel-drive version. Its hybrid powertrain consists of a 141-hp, 144-lb-ft of torque 2.0-liter I-4 engine mated to a 40-hp (30 kW), 118-lb-ft of torque electric motor. Nissan says that the total horsepower output for this four-door SUV is 176, six more than 2.5-liter I-4 found in the non-hybrid Rogue. The small lithium-ion battery packs 0.8 kWh of energy and only curtails cargo carrying capacity behind the rear seat by 1.1 cubic feet, occupying the space where the optional third-row child seats would go in the regular Rogue.
Standard features include satellite radio, a 5.0-inch color instrument cluster display, USB and auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. The Rogue Hybrid differs from its non-hybrid counterpart in these ways: it includes a hybrid gauge added to the driver display screen, the second row seat is a 60/40 split-folding design, it adds a storage space under the rear cargo area, and Pure Drive HEV badging is added to the engine cover and exterior.
Edmunds reviewers say: "Best-in-class front seat comfort; ride quality remains comfortable over varying terrain; user-friendly tech options; versatile cargo storage."
US News and World Report reviewers say: "The 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid boasts excellent gas mileage, a well-cushioned ride, and one of the best interiors in its class. The Rogue Hybrid is a good compact SUV. It gets the best fuel economy in the segment, especially on the highway. That’s unusual, as hybrids tend to get better fuel economy in the city where they can make full use of their battery power. The 176 horsepower from the Rogue Hybrid’s combined gas/electric motor is respectable, but more importantly, the engine is quieter than its competitors’. Combine that with a good predicted reliability score and the strong warranty for hybrids, and you have an SUV that is not only hushed on the road but relatively worry-free, too."
MSRP starts around $26,240. The 2017 Nissan Rogue's hybrid components have an 8 yr./ 100,000 mile warranty.
