2018 Nissan Rogue Hybrid OVERVIEW

That Nissan’s mid-size five-seater Rogue SUV has been the brand’s most popular model in recent years is hardly shocking. That it’s placed a solid second in the entire SUV/crossover segment’s sales standings for years – and now claims the top spot despite vying for buyers against the better-known Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4 – is.

The Rogue is available in conventional gasoline-powered (covered elsewhere) or gasoline-electric hybrid forms, with both sending power to the front or all four wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Two Hybrid trims are available, priced at $27,995 and $33,355 for the FWD SV and SL, respectively, with all-wheel drive a $1,350 upcharge.

What's New for 2018

Though the Rogue Hybrid is only in its sophomore year, Nissan’s nonetheless made significant improvements to the model. The standard features list has grown to include a motion-activated power liftgate for both trims, an updated NissanConnect infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and an additional USB port. The SV’s standard safety suite has also grown to include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning and assist, while an adaptive cruise control system has been added to the Premium Package.

Choosing Your Nissan Rogue Hybrid

Despite the “regular” Rogue’s sales success, Nissan has chosen to make the hybrid version available in its “four key US market areas: the West, Northwest, Mountain, and Mid-Atlantic regions.” That’s not to say Midwesterners, for instance, can’t buy them; it’s more that they shouldn’t count on their local dealer having any.

Regardless, the Hybrid Rogue is powered by an automatic stop/start 2.0-liter inline-four gasoline engine that produces 141 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque coupled to a 30-kW electric motor fed by a battery pack beneath its rear seats. Together, they can put out a net total of 176 hp – six more than the regular Rogue’s 2.5-liter inline-four – to the ground through Nissan’s Xtronic six-speed CVT.

In front-wheel-drive form, going Hybrid adds $1,000 to the MSRP of the SV and $1,200 to SL. It also adds several hundred pounds, but, despite either Hybrid’s weight “penalty,” its zero-to-60 mph time is within the same nine-to-10-second range as all Rogues.

But, as it’s a hybrid, that’s not the set of numbers most consumers focus on. According to the EPA, the FWD Rogue returns 26 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 29 combined, while the AWD gets 25/32/27 mpg (city/highway/combined). The heavier Rogue Hybrids, on the other hand, are EPA rated at 33/35/34 mpg and 31/34/33 mpg, respectively.

SV Hybrid

The Rogue Hybrid line opens with the $27,995 (all prices include the $975 destination charge) front-wheel-drive SV trim. It’s equipped in the same way as the standard Rogue SV, with the 2.5-liter inline-four engine replaced by the hybrid drivetrain.

Less obvious are the changes necessitated by the placement of the battery pack beneath the floor near the rear axle. It requires the replacement of the Rogue’s EZ FLEX Seating System – a split-folding, sliding, and reclining second row seating with pass-through – with a standard 60/40-split-folding seat. Also, the Divide-N-Hide Cargo System, which uses movable floor panels to create customizable cargo configurations, is ditched in favor of a shallow underfloor storage area.

That aside, the rest of the SV trim’s equipment is along for the ride, including a heated six-way power driver’s seat and four-way power passenger’s seat, body-color heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals and blind-spot monitoring, dual-zone climate controls, 17-inch aluminum wheels, perimeter locking with push-button start, and a five-inch central color screen with a rearview camera and hybrid system display paired with a four-speaker audio system with SiriusXM Satellite Radio, an aux input, two USB ports, Bluetooth, Andlroid Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and voice control.

There are eight available paints (three of which are $395 extra) and two upholstery colors (black or tan) on the Rogue Hybrid SV. The only available option group is the Premium Package ($2,870). It includes a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, memory for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, a nine-speaker Bose Premium audio system with dual subwoofers, navigation, HD Radio, NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, a surround-view monitor, and a moonroof.

SL Hybrid

As is the case with non-Hybrid Rogues, the apex SL Hybrid trim, which starts at $33,355, builds on the SV and adds the Premium Package contents (minus the moonroof), leather upholstery, 18-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, and a safety suite that includes automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning.

Exterior and interior color choices remain the same, while the only available package is the power panoramic moonroof for $1,320. Factory-installed features include illuminated kick plates ($395), a Class I tow hitch receiver ($315), and chrome rear bumper protector ($155).

CarsDirect Tip

Apart from all-wheel drive and niceties like leather upholstery and a panoramic moonroof, choosing a 2018 Nissan Rogue Hybrid comes down to the selection of tech. Need navigation? It’s $30,865 in an SV with the Premium Package. Want what’s available safety-suite wise? That’s $33,355 to get into the FWD SL Hybrid.
