The CVT allows the Rogue to get 9.1 L/100 km in the city and 7.1 L/100 km on highways.


Interiors and Special Features:

The Nissan Rogue has a handsome interior that offers a luxurious, elegant feel. It uses premium soft-touch fabrics, low gloss materials and metallic trims. Its dashboard has a simple layout that was designed for quick use to ensure drivers keep their eyes on the road.

Nissan Rogue offers superior driver ergonomics with its NASA-inspired “Zero Gravity” design. The front seats are 6-way adjustable. The Rogue also includes a manual tilt/telescoping steering column, generously padded armrests and a foot rest for the driver.

Two-row seating is standard in all models, with a third-row seat available for S and SV models only. The second row is a 40-20-40 folding split-bench with front-facing, manual reclining, fold-forward seatback for full adjustability. The second row slides on a 9-inch track to expand legroom and reclines for added comfort if necessary.

Another advantage the Nissan Rogue provides is plenty of cargo space. When all seats are folded down, 70 cubic feet of space exists. Comparatively, with seats up, there is 32 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row or 9.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row.
