2017 Nissan Rogue exterior

The new design has proven to be quite controversial, depending on how you viewed the previous model, you’ll either like the new design or … not. The exterior is quite unusual for an SUV.

Restyling should further whet consumer interest in the Rogue, because it, as the developers believed to have become much more attractive. Grille is now decorated in the latest corporate fashion: it has got a huge V-shaped chrome insert, the new LED headlights and more angular bumper. The rear bumper is also new, but the shape of rear lights has not changed, they have only the other “stuffing”, more contrast and elegant.

Compared with the exterior, the interior is much less controversial; a stylish dashboard, 5” color LCD screen, well thought out seating, including moveable seats to help with luggage space and of course there will be a third-row seating option.

Inside, the first thing drew the attention of a new D-shape sports steering wheel. In addition, there was a contrasting leather insert on the front panel on the passenger side and different central tunnel decorated with leather case gear lever.
