  • 2018 Nissan Rogue Hybrid

    Just as most automakers gear up to announce their 2019 models, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Hybrid is arriving in showrooms scattered across select markets in the U.S. To mark the new year (is it still new?), the Rogue Hybrid's price is up about $800 over last year to $27,995 for the base SV trim level, including a mandatory destination charge. That figure helps account for an updated infotainment system with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus a motion-activated power tailgate.

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid: gas mileage review

    Last year, Nissan sold almost 330,000 Rogues in the U.S., making it by far the brand's most popular model. For 2017, the compact crossover utility vehicle has added a new model, a hybrid that competes with the very successful Toyota RAV4 Hybrid—of which 44,000 were delivered last year. We...

    2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid: better prospects than Pathfinder, Murano for small hybrid SUV?

    As predicted several years ago by a now-departed member of the Nissan product team, the third of three hybrid SUVs has rolled out. The 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid is the smallest of the three, and the company seems to be somewhat more optimistic about its prospects. Last year's 2016 Murano Hybrid...

    Nissan Juke, Rogue crossover SUVs to offer all-electric versions?

    It's a frequent complaint from car shoppers: all the affordable electric cars are small hatchbacks or sedans, but I want an SUV. Indeed, there's only one all-electric crossover utility vehicle on the market—the Tesla Model X—and that will run you $80,000 or more. Now it appears that...

  • 2015 Nissan Rogue

    Is a plug-in version of the Rogue compact crossover joining the Nissan U.S. lineup anytime soon? Based on comments made by Nissan officials this week at the Geneva Motor Show, it’s a distinct possibility. As part of his speech presenting the Sway Concept, which points to the design direction of upcoming Nissan small cars, the automaker’s European chief Paul Willcox said, “And yes, we're even looking at electric technologies for crossovers.” “You'll be seeing a concept example later this year,” Willcox continued, as a side view of the Qashqai was displayed...

    2014 Subaru Forester Aces New IIHS Crash Test; Other Crossovers, Not So Much

    Last year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety introduced a new crash test -- and a new rating to accompany it.

  • Better Place Battery Switching Test, Yokohama Japan

    Urban taxi service may be the equal of any proving-ground torture test. Taxis are driven hard, up to 20 hours a day, and must handle both bad roads and bad drivers. Those that survive without falling apart should do fine in civilian duty. Which is why Better Place chose Tokyo to test out its battery quick-swap technology six months ago--and why it's now expanding that test to San Francisco as well. The company has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to bring its switchable-battery electric taxi program to the San Francisco Bay Area, in partnership with the municipal...
