2019 Nissan Rogue Named “Best New Compact SUV” by SUV Trend

Rogue is the best-selling Nissan’s vehicle in the US. Last year, more than 400,000 units were sold. That is one of the main reasons for the further development of the base and other models. But, if hybrid returns next year, the 2019 Nissan Rogue will complete the lineup of this crossover SUV.

Even if it doesn’t happen, the vehicle will be one of the most popular on the market. Its compact dimensions provide easy handling and cornering. From feedbacks, we can hear that drivers are very happy with its performance. With further improvements, the sky is the limit for 2019 Nissan Rogue. Check out which are the best compact SUV models for 2019.

2019 Nissan Rogue Pros and Cons

Every owner of the Rogue SUV will tell you will find everything inside the cabin. Safety features are the most impressive. Also, the interior layout is an object of praise. The 2019 Nissan Rogue will offer the same amount of cargo space as its bigger sibling Murano. Hybrid will be optional, but it is not going to satisfy all enthusiasts with its performance. The small crossover is not so powerful, and its base units could get few more features as standard. Besides these, there are no big objections about the Rogue.

Drivetrain

The 2019 Nissan Rogue will use a 2.5-liter engine as the only conventional unit. This drivetrain is mated to an Xtronic continuously variable automatic transmission. Mentioned gearbox has few modes available, and a driver can switch them during a ride. The combination is good for 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is another strength of this crossover since it returns 26/33 mpg with 2WD.

The second option is a hybrid drivetrain. Under its hood owners will find a 2.0-liter petrol drivetrain paired with an electric motor. It adds 6 horses to overall output. Fuel economy for highway drive is not getting a big boost. On the other hand, in urban areas, the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid will run 34 mpg.

Although it carries the same name, Nissan Rogue Sport is totally different SUV. It is the Qashqai version for the US market. Besides the name, two Rogues don’t have too much in common.
