The 2012 Nissan Rogue is one of the most popular crossovers on the road today because of the fact that it has a reputation for being comfortable and roomy. On top of all of that the Nissan Rogue has a nice interior and a lot of space to transport cargo. The design has been updated a bit for 2012 with new wheels but the ride is still as smooth as ever. The 2012 version of the Rogue comes in two different trim levels that are each priced differently. You can expect to pay between $21,000-$24,000 depending on which options you want.
The less expensive of the two trim levels is the 2012 Nissan Rogue S. It is well equipped and priced at $21,000. The value for your money is considered to be very good as this base model gives the driver many features that are unexpected.
The SV is the higher end trim level of the Nissan Rogue. It costs around $24,000 and comes standard with all of the same features that the S has plus some. The SV is considered to be a better buy because for just a few more thousand dollars you are getting some features that make the car more luxurious. There is no doubt that the SV gives off a stylish look while maintaining a comfortable and smooth ride.
Some of the 2012 Nissan Rogue S features include 16-inch steel wheels, folding side mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning, tilt steering, full power accessories, and a four speaker sound system with a CD player. The S trim level comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that gets great gas mileage considering the population that it serves.
The 2012 Nissan Rogue SV gets additional features that include 17-inch alloy wheels as opposed to 16-inch, keyless ignition and keyless entry, as well as, a six way power driver’s seat. The engine in the SV is the same as the one in the S with a 2.5L 4-cylinder block.
One thing that should be noted is that the 2012 Nissan Rogue is available in either front wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Of course, the all-wheel drive models are going to be a bit more expensive. If you do, however, opt for a front wheel drive Rogue you will be happy to know that the 3.5L 4-cylinder engine can more than hold its own. It has been clocked at 8.6 seconds going from 0-60 MPH. In addition, the fuel economy of the front wheel drive model is outstanding. You can expect to get right around 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. For a crossover this gas mileage is very good when compared to other vehicles in its class.
The 2012 Nissan Rogue is great for families that want to have a stylish crossover as opposed to a full-size SUV or a minivan. The fact that the gas mileage is great will help to ease the pain of costs as the total cost of ownership will be lower than some of these other bigger SUV’s you see out there. When you take the time to compare it to other vehicles in its class such as Toyota Rav4 or the Mitsubishi Outlander it is clear that the Rogue is just as good as any of them if not better.
The 2012 Nissan Rogue comes standard with safety features that make it even more desirable to consumers. Standard features include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, active front headrests, as well as, a full complement of airbags. These safety features are nice as they will provide the driver and the passengers with a level of protection that they may not get in any older model vehicle.
