Nissan Rogue SL 2014 Review

Nissan Rogue SL 2014 is quite interesting when compared with past models in the line. We are faced with differences and they are all for the better. The engine is quieter when compared to the older model and you will definitely appreciate the interior more.

Fast Facts To Be Aware Of

If you are in a hurry and do not want to go through all we talk about, here is what you will most likely want to know:

  • Engine – 2.5 liter 4 cylinder 170 hp
  • Fuel Economy – The AWD models have a rating of 25-32 city-highway and the front wheel drive model is rated at 26-33
  • Transmission – You only have a variable continuous automatic transmission available
  • Price – The starter price is $23,350


Nissan Rogue SL 2014 interior

The interior is now class competitive and modern. You will love the NissanConnect as it offers perfect smartphone integration and various interesting apps. This 7 inch touchscreen is obviously an improvement. Front seats are comfortable and offer great support on long drives.

Nissan Rogue SL 2014 added a row of seats for this model. We only have small space though so for long drives it will not be great. In fact, this row may only be suitable for children. Second row seats can slide back when you do not use the third row so that you can have generous legroom available even for a tall passenger.

The only thing that is not great is the lack of the 7 seat option for the vehicles that are leather equipped. Just SV and S Rogue models are available with this third row option. However, you have access to quite a lot of cargo space.


Nissan Rogue SL 2014 02

We have a third row added in the 2014 Nissan Rogue SL but the SUV is actually shorter than the older model. This is not something that many appreciate. You have better dynamics when driving but this lack of space may feel uncomfortable for many. This new Rogue model will feel much larger when you are behind the wheel. On the whole, the item is shorter, taller and wider. The new design is sophisticated and you will love the result.

Things Of Interest

The engine is definitely interesting and the drivetrain was tweaked in order to have more efficiency. The all wheel drive models have a much better fuel consumption than the last model. This is true for all drivetrains. We see high efficiency when compared with the Toyota RAV 4 and the Subaru Forester, which have similar power.

The power response of the 2014 Nissan Rogue SL is quite decent and acceleration only feels lackluster on the highway. Starting price only jumped by $2,000 and that is definitely competitive.


Nissan Rogue SL 2014

On the whole, the new Nissan Rogue SL 2014 model is an improvement and if you compare it with the older model you will surely realize the fact that $2,000 extra is not at all too much to play. Nissan does manage to add some features that are interesting and you will love that the strong selling points of the 2013 model are maintained.
