NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Consumer Guide Automotive has named the Nissan Rogue and Rogue Sport to its annual "Best Buy Award" list for 2018 in the Compact Crossover and Subcompact Crossover categories, respectively.
The publication, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, evaluates new vehicles in 20 vehicle segments and selects the top models in class based on a range of factors including price. "A vehicle does not become a 'Best Buy' based solely on objective ratings. It also has to distinguish itself as being a good dollar value compared to others in the class," stated the editors.
"The new Rogue Sport, which was first introduced just last summer, is already starting to bring home major awards such as this Consumer Guide 'Best Buy Award,'" said Dan Mohnke, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan Division U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. "We're proud that together with Rogue, our compact crossovers are making an impact with media evaluators and consumers alike."

About the 2018 Rogue
The Nissan Rogue, the number-one selling Nissan model, added an all-new Rogue Sport model mid-year, strengthening both total Rogue sales and the Rogue brand. For 2018, in addition to ProPILOT Assist, every Rogue offers NissanConnectSM featuring standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, along with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), across all grade levels. ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers maintain lane control, navigate stop-and-go traffic, maintain a set vehicle speed and maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead – all with a simple two-button operation. ProPILOT Assist is available on the 2018 Rogue SL grade as part of the Platinum Package.
About the 2018 Rogue Sport
The new Rogue Sport shares many of the design, utility and technology attributes that have made Rogue Nissan's best-selling vehicle in the United States, but is slightly smaller, sportier and more affordable for younger, urban SUV buyers. These buyers are looking for much more space than a compact sedan, while still seeking the maneuverability and fun-to-drive feel that Rogue Sport delivers. Like Rogue, the Rogue Sport offers a comprehensive suite of Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield technologies. The list includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Intelligent Lane Intervention (I-LI).
