CARS.COM — Nissan was kind enough to send us a 2017.5 (yes, it's different from a 2017) Rogue for our 2017 Compact SUV Challenge.

The '17.5 Rogue now features standard forward emergency braking, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert across all trim levels. Our test vehicle was a Rogue SL in Caspian Blue with standard 18-inch alloy wheels. Power came from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 170 horsepower and 175 pounds-feet of torque.
Inside, the charcoal interior provided room for five passengers — a third row of seats is optional but was not included as part of the test vehicle's optional equipment. The included options were a panoramic moonroof and LED headlights for $1,820 as part of the SL Premium Package, as well as floormats and a cargo-area protector for an additional $225. Total MSRP for the Rogue, including a destination charge, was $34,715, coming in just under our $35,000 limit.
