The Nissan Rogue has been completely redesigned for 2014. It receives a sleek look, a higher quality interior and additional features and options. Its roomy and functional cabin offers comfortable seating for up to seven passengers with the optional third-row seat and it can be converted to carry up to 70 cubic feet of stuff with the second and third rows folded down.
While it still features the same 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, Nissan says it has managed to increase fuel economy by 18 percent over the outgoing model. With a few minor tweaks the front-wheel drive Nissan Rogue now delivers an estimated 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. All-wheel variants also see a boost in fuel economy, delivering an estimated 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.
The 2014 Nissan Rogue is offered in three trim levels- S, SV and SL. Prices start at just $22,490 for the base S and top out at just over $32,500 for a fully loaded, top-of-the-line SL.
Standard features on the base Rogue S include 17-inch steel wheels, LED daytime running lights, a rear spoiler, full power accessories, a rearview monitor, Bluetooth and a four-speaker sound system with an auxiliary jack, streaming audio capability and an iPod/USB interface.
