Product Overview, Test Model
Nissan arrived late to the compact SUV market, having jumped in as far more established models such as the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape dominated the segment. But its late entry and subsequent update have made this model a strong competitor.
It is also a model offering an optional third row seat as part of a SV edition family package ($540) upgrade that brings in run-flat tires as well. Right off, I can’t recommend the package for the two reasons given as the third row offers only token room and the run flats mean there is no spare tire to be had. Indeed, it was an SV edition with that package and front-wheel drive that served as my weekly driver. Priced from $24,490, upgrades such as roof rail cross bars ($290) and an SV premium package ($1,500) put this 2015 model’s final price at $28,170.
Shop for a 2016 edition and you’ll find the Rogue S priced from $23,140, the SV from $24,590, and the SL priced from $28,540. Add $1,350 to the price if you choose all-wheel drive.
