Top 10 Reasons to Drive a 2016 Nissan Rogue from your Monroe Nissan Dealer

If you're looking for reasons to choose the 2016 Nissan Rogue, look no further than your Monroe Nissan dealer! Sparks Nissan is highlighting a few of the Nissan Rogue's top features that make it stand out from other vehicles in its class like the Honda CR-V. After reading about the Nissan Rogue's best features, you'll be ready to take it for a test drive as soon as possible!

  1. Around View Monitor: Allows the driver to see all objects around the vehicle on a screen. The CR-V only offers a rear monitor so you won't have the same view.
  2. Reliability: Consumer Reports predicts the Nissan Rogue's reliability will be 12% better than the Honda CR-V's reliability, which will save you money, time and trouble.
  3. Fuel Economy: You can go the extra mile in the Rogue that has a slightly better fuel mileage than its competition. Great news for those summer road trips you have planned!
  4. Brakes: The Rogue has standard front and rear vented disc brakes that contribute to its shorter stopping distance. The Rogue can go from 60 to zero mph in 118 ft. but the CR-V will take 121 ft. to come to a complete stop. This shorter distance could be the deciding factor when braking to avoid an accident.
  5. Easy Tire Fill System: The Rogue comes standard with an easy tire fill system that keeps track of tire pressure and alerts you once they are filled to the proper pressure.
  6. Run-Flat Tires: In the event that you get a flat tire, the Rogue's run-flat tires can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure giving you time to get to a service station. Run-flat tires are not offered with the CR-V.
  7. Off-Road Capability: If you like taking your SUV off the beaten path, the Rogue is well equipped to handle any adventure you want to take with its minimum ground clearance of 7.6 ft. that is greater than the CR-V's minimum ground clearance.
  8. Passenger Space: The Rogue has seating for up to 7 passengers but the CR-V can only seat 5 passengers so you may have to take 2 cars on road trips.
  9. Cargo Capacity: Fit all the essentials in the Rogue that has more cargo capacity than the competition so you can fit your groceries, baggage and other items easily!
  10. Convenient Features: Choose the Rogue and you'll get convenient features like variable intermittent wipers and windows that can be open or closed using the key in the outside lock cylinder.
