What’s New: The 2017 Nissan Rogue

Friday, March 31st, 2017

Hi! My name is Collin, and here are a few highlights of the new 2017 Nissan Rogue.

It’s what’s on the outside that matters, right?

Compared to the 2016 Rogue, the 2017 Rogue looks more modern with some “edge” in its personality. That’s because this crossover SUV is styled with modern LED lights, it struts a new fascia design (“fascia” is a fancy automotive word that refers to the front components like the grill, bumper, etc.), and it has an all-new wheel design.

The inside matters, too.

Inside, you’re given a new flat-bottom steering wheel. Ok, I know what you’re thinking. What’s so important about a flat-bottom steering wheel? The answer is two-fold. The bottom of a normal steering wheel is, you guessed it, ROUND. By giving it a flat bottom, you gain more space for your legs, which gives you more comfort while driving and more ease while getting in/out. Plus, race cars tend to have flat-bottom steering wheels, so that automatically makes you cool. This leather-wrapped beauty of a steering wheel isn’t just loved for its looks. It’s also heated. Just press the button, and your icicle hands will get all warm and fuzzy (or maybe just the warm part).

This SUV has a 2-person memory driver’s seat and mirrors. That means you can customize and save the position of the seat and mirrors for you and another driver. You save your preferences by pushing the “set” button, and then “1” (for driver 1). The other driver in your family would save their settings by pushing “set” and then “2” (for driver 2). From then on, if someone changes your seats or mirrors, all you’d have to do is press your driver number to get everything back to normal.

My favorite part of the 2017 Nissan Rogue is the remote start option. When you’re within 200 feet of the vehicle (ie: inside your house), you can start it with your remote, allowing your AC/Heat to do it’s magic before you walk out of the house. Don’t worry, even though your car is “on” while you’re inside, the vehicle will remain locked (unless you choose to unlock it), and it can’t shift into gear without your intelligent key inside the car.
