The Nissan Rogue once again lead the Automotive Science Group’s (ASG) 2018 Automotive Performance Index™ (API), demonstrating the full capabilities of Nissan’s crossover platform. With an EPA estimated 33 MPG highway (26 city/33 hwy/29 combined), the Rogue outshines competitors in class by an average 7 MPG highway, proving to skeptics that significant fuel economy gains in the mid-size SUV segment are attainable, earning ASG’s 2018 BEST ALL-AROUND PERFORMANCE Award.

ASG’s all-around performance analysis is a comprehensive data-driven assessment, analyzing economic, environmental and social performance indicators across a vehicle’s life-cycle, and in relative comparison to all competitive vehicles in the market.

The Rogue earned a class leading all-around performance rating in ASG’s Study, outperforming the average vehicle in its segment by an astounding 21%. The Rogue lead notable competitors including the Mitsubishi Outlander and Honda CR-V with a 3% advantage, and the Subaru Forester and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport by 5% and 8% respectively.

ASG found the 2018 Nissan Rogue to offer the best all-around performance and value in class, and across its life-cycle.

The Nissan Rogue leverages an efficient 2.5 Liter engine to deliver fuel efficient transport in the mid-size SUV segment, without the need for advanced powertrain components. In fact, the Rogue’s light weighting strategy gives it significant weight advantage across the segment, coming in at 816 pounds lighter than the average curb weight in class. Less resources translates to reduced environmental footprint, increased operational efficiency and reduced life-cycle operating costs.

The Nissan Rogue is a steady performer of exceptional value, earning ASG’s distinguished honor in 2018.
