Its combined EPA-estimated fuel rating of 34 mpg when equipped with front-wheel drive and 35 mpg when equipped with all-wheel drive, earned the 2018 Nissan Rogue Hybrid a spot on Kelley Blue Book®’s Top 10 list of the Most Fuel-Efficient SUVs.

The five-passenger 2018 Rogue Hybrid is currently available in four markets — Northwest, West, Mid-Atlantic and Mountain. The innovative SUV comes in two trims — SV Hybrid and SL Hybrid. Standard on both models are four-wheel disc brakes with an Anti-lock Braking System and Vehicle Dynamic Control. The hybrid models earn a horsepower rating of 176 and feature an Xtronic transmission with Eco and Sport Mode settings.

Inside comfort is at its maximum due to front bucket seats and a driver’s seat equipped with six possible settings and a four-way adjustable passenger seat. Opt for the available Quick Comfort™ heated front seats to combat cold days. A split folding 40/60-split second row seat provides versatile storage space.

Staying connected and entertained is effortless as both models boast standard streaming audio via Bluetooth®, a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, a USB connection port, a 5.0-inch center display, and Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant with compatible smartphone.

The hybrid models also come equipped with advanced Safety Shield Technologies including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Blind Spot Warning.

The SV Hybrid features the fuel saving technology of Engine Idle Start/Stop and Energy Flow Gauge. You’ll appreciate the underfloor cargo storage to keep things out of sight.

In addition to the features on the SV trim, the SL Hybrid also comes standard with LED headlights, NissanConnect® with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, leather-appointed seats, Intelligent Around View® Monitor, and a 7.0-inch display. Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Intelligent Lane Intervention are standard on the SL trim as well.
