The Rogue compact crossover has become Nissan’s best-selling model and the fifth best-selling vehicle in the U.S., trailing only the Toyota RAV4 in SUV sales through August. Nissan has turned up the heat on competitors with the addition of standard safety features on 2017.5 models.
Midyear upgrades to the Rogue include making forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert standard on all models. Previously, none of those features was available on base S models, and forward emergency braking was available only in an option package on SL models.
