The 2019 Nissan Rogue earned its spot in part to its advanced safety features, according to U.S. News & World Report writer Joel Patel. Standard driver assist systems include automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, intelligent lane intervention, and pedestrian detection.
Also noteworthy on the 2019 Rogue, is its combined mpg rating of 29 as well as its well-appointed cabin.
“When you’re commuting, the comfort-first nature of this SUV shines. If you don’t take the long way home after work, comfort is likely to take precedence over handling anyways, and the Rogue sure is comfortable,” writes Patel.
The impressive fuel efficiency of the 2019 Nissan Kicks made the editors take notice.
“The subcompact SUV’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine might not feel powerful — only putting out 122 horsepower — but it sure is efficient. Thanks to a continuously variable transmission, the Kicks has a combined EPA rating of 33 mpg,” reports Patel.
Also, a key attribute of the 2019 Kicks is its ample cargo space. Behind the rear seats, the Kicks deliver 25.3 cubic feet of room just waiting to be filled with gear.
