Great car all around
It is rare to find a nice awd hybrid. This car is great in all weather and all terrain and is better for the environment than most alternatives.
Not fun average SUV with failed hybrid technology
We have decided based on looks and interior comfort (in comparison with Toyota RAV Hybrid) to give Nissan Rouge Hybrid a shot. Rouge is a second hybrid technology attempt by Nissan. They had Altima Hybrid model few years back - which was according to many car experts a complete failure. After owning this SUV for 2 years - I am sad to report that 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid SL AWD is also complete failure when if comes to performance. 2.0 4 cylinder engine is too weak for this SUV and additional electric motor is not providing sufficient support, so you constantly feel under-powered. Main point of getting a hybrid would be gas savings, but even in this department numbers are very disappointing. Average gas mileage since new (32,000 miles) 25 MPG !!! You can reach 30 miles per gallon only on absolute flat terrain, hypermiling... This is not a cheap vehicle. Do not waste your money - look somewhere else. I test drove Honda CRV AWD with 1.5 L turbo engine at the time and I regret not buying it. According to all review this SUV (less expensive with better reliability) is getting much better gas mileage and is actually fun to drive.
It's just the right size, has very comfortable seats and is loaded with technology! I recommend it to the hybrid lovers . I had 37 mpg gas mileage! Above average and I drive back and forth to work 70 miles a day
