What Makes the 2018 Nissan Rogue One of the Best SUVs in America?


For ten years, the Nissan Rogue has been a consistent inclusion on reviewers’ “best of” lists. With every calendar change-over, the Rogue produces something novel and exciting for its owners. While the 2017 model was one of the best SUVs of the year, the 2018 Rogue has plenty of new and awesome features that you’ll love to take on the road. From its incredible safety ratings to boosted fuel efficiency, the Nissan Rogue is a great choice for anybody looking to invest in a spicy crossover.

Here’s why you should get to know the 2018 Rogue, which is available for sale and lease today at our Albuquerque Nissan dealership.



Nissan has always made safety a priority, and the newest Rogue is no exception. This is great news for all drivers, particularly those with kids. When it comes to both crash avoidance and damage reduction, the 2018 Rogue will keep everyone inside safe. It’s also an IIHS Top Safety Pick, partly due to the fact that it comes with a slew of all-time-great safety features, such as:

  • Nissan’s advanced airbag system (dual-stage, front and back, with sensors)
  • Vehicle Dynamic Control
  • Zone Body Construction to absorb impact
  • TPMS with Easy-Fill Tire Alert
  • Simple-to-use LATCH anchors
  • NissanConnect, which automatically contacts emergency crews when an accident occurs
  • Customizable alerts (speed, valet, boundary, curfew)


Fuel Efficiency

Fuel efficiency is becoming one of the most important aspects to consider when buying or leasing a new car in Albuquerque. Whether you want to help the environment or just avoid overpaying at the pump, the right vehicle can go a long way.

Luckily, the 2018 Nissan Rogues deliver an incredible return on investment when it comes to the fuel tank. Returning an exceptional 26/33 MPG (city/highway), the new Rogue is a fuel-sipping machine. Of course, the Rogue Hybrid model offers the best fuel economy, at 34 MPG, but don’t overlook the Rogue Sport, which returns a worthy 28 MPG. No matter the new Rogue you choose in ABQ, you should expect good performance from mile one to one-hundred.

Extra Features

On top of comfort and room, the inside of the Nissan Rogue has a lot of features to help you on your journey.

Backseat entertainment screens and a four-speaker audio system ensure that you and your little ones enjoy every journey, no matter how long. If you find it difficult to get away from your phone, you can remain connected when inside the Rogue (just not while driving) thanks to the quick Bluetooth system.

On top of Bluetooth, the 2018 Rogue also features a hands-free texting assistant, so you can stay on top of life while keeping your eyes on the road. And if you’re worried about staying charged and keeping the music going, the Rogue offers two USB ports. Even better, the newest Rogue SUV includes a smartphone app that allows you to lock or unlock the car.

There are many other features that make the 2018 Rogue a powerhouse. However, it should suffice to say that when you get behind the wheel, you’ll see that the future is in the shape of a “Nissan” logo.



The Nissan Rogue is a spacious vehicle, as most SUVs are. However, what makes the Rogue so spectacular is the fact that it is comfy, too. US News and World Report gives it an 8.1/10 for its interior, noting that the seats are comfortable and provide plenty of leg room.

If you have kids or regularly move things, you’ll be thrilled with the extra leg-room in this two-row crossover. On top of multiple rows of comfortable seating, the 2018 Rogue also provides plenty of cargo space. The back seats fold and provide over 70 cubic feet of room. Even with the seats are up, you’ll have 35 cubic feet to work with. So, if you often find yourself crunched for room in an ordinary SUV, the 2018 Rogue can take you to a whole other world of spaciousness.
