2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Nissan gave its popular Rogue SUV a slew of updates for 2017, including a new hybrid variant. The Rogue remains one of the few compact SUVs to offer a third-row seat, which increases seating capacity to seven. Nissan says the 2017 Rogue will hit dealerships in early November, while the Rogue Hybrid, which is two-row only, will go on sale by the end of the year.
ExteriorWhen Nissan slapped its "V-motion" grille on the redesigned Maxima and Murano, then added it to slew of refreshed models, it was only a matter of time before the Rogue got the same. It's wider than the previous (and already V-shaped) unit and the grille overtakes more of the nose, with framework that extends farther down the bumper. The headlight bezels are now more clearly defined, while the arrow-shaped LED accents are more restrained. The fog lights sit in new, L-shaped insets.
Less has changed in back. The bumper has taller cladding and the taillights are a bit darker, but other elements are otherwise unchanged. The available power liftgate now works with motion activation.

InteriorThe cabin gets a racier steering wheel and new, stitched accents on the passenger-side dashboard and around the gearshift. The shifter adds a leather boot, too. The available leather upholstery can optionally come with quilted inserts.
The second row folds in a 40/20/40-split fold. In models without the optional two-seat third row, Nissan offers a cargo-organizing system with 18 adjustable variations. The Rogue Hybrid lacks the cargo organizer or third row, and its backseat folds in a 60/40-split.
The center controls carry over. A 5-inch center display, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, USB port and backup camera are standard. Options include dual-zone automatic climate control, a power driver's seat, 7-inch touch-screen with navigation, a 360-degree camera system, keyless access with push-button start and Bose premium audio. New options for 2017 include a heated steering wheel and memory system for the driver's seat. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable, however.

Under the HoodThe Rogue's standard drivetrain remains a 170-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pairs with a CVT. The Rogue Hybrid combines a 2.0-liter gas engine with an electric motor, which draws power from a lithium-ion battery, for a total 176 hp. Both powertrains offer front- or all-wheel drive.
Nissan estimates the non-hybrid Rogue will earn combined EPA mileage in the high 20s, while the Rogue Hybrid will get 34 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and 33 mpg with all-wheel drive -- the latter figure matches Toyota's all-wheel-drive RAV4 Hybrid.

SafetyThe Rogue now offers forward emergency braking with a pedestrian-detection function. Lane departure and blind spot warning systems are also available, as is adaptive cruise control.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
