The driving dynamics and the acceleration performance also increased compared to the previous generation Nissan Rogue. This Nissan Compact Crossover SUV will be the main competitor of the Mazda CX-5 and even the Volkswagen Tiguan. If you are curious about the review of this modern SUV, read the following article.

Just like the previous generation, the latest generation Nissan Rogue has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. However, unfortunately, rumors say that this car only has electricity up to 181-hp. This car will be more agile and secure for you to control because it has front-wheel drive.
However, also wanting an all-wheel-drive version is optional. Besides, this car also has a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). In the previous generation, acceleration and handling were a bit clumsy. Hopefully, this latest generation of Nissan Rogue has much better acceleration and handling.
Talking about fuel economy, Nissan claims it will increase fuel economy on the latest generation Nissan Rogue to 29 mpg for the base all-wheel-drive models. As for the front-wheel-drive setup, the fuel economy of this car is 30 mpg.
However, the 2022 Nissan Rogue has not had the opportunity to test fuel economy on the highway fuel-efficient route. Therefore, the fuel economy and the real-world MPG on the latest Nissan Rogue generation are not yet transparent.
