The Nissan Rogue was first introduced to the market by Nissan in 2007 as a 2008 model year vehicle as a substitute to the Nissan X-Trail. This compact crossover sport utility vehicle was unveiled at the 2007 International Motor Show in Detroit. Now, the Japanese automaker is going to redesign this model for the model year 2017. Even though the 2017 Nissan Rogue experiences a subpar performance when compared to that of its competitors, like the 2017 Mazda CX-5 and the 2017 Honda CR-V, it still stays as a pleasing enough small crossover sport utility vehicle. With some of its vigors, such as user-friendly technology options, a versatile interior storage, an optional third-row seating, and a smooth highway ride, the new Rogue happens to be an ideal family vehicle. The 2017 model Rogue will be offered with three models that include S, SL, SV, such that all models come with a two-row seating as standard, and except SL, the other two models will be offered with a third-row seat as an option.
