How Much Does the 2017 Nissan Rogue Cost to Own?

Fuel, insurance, maintenance, and repairs for a 2017 Rogue will cost you an estimated $23,840 over five years (or around $4,760 per year). This is slightly above average for the compact SUV class, but not by a lot. The 2017 Honda CR-V’s five-year costs are estimated to be about $21,200, and the 2017 Mazda CX-5’s expenses are projected to be about $22,660. The 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid has five-year cost estimates of about $23,000.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Nissan Rogue?

A 2018 Nissan Rogue’s base price of $24,800 is almost $5,000 more than the average used 2017 Rogue. There are some pretty significant differences between the 2018 and 2017 Rogue. Nissan introduced standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as the optional ProPILOT driver assistance system, for the 2018 model year. ProPILOT is a suite of technologies that can autonomously steer, accelerate, and brake the Rogue under certain conditions. If none of these changes matter to you, and you're open to driving a used car, consider sticking with a used 2017 Rogue to save money. Also, if you’re eyeing the Rogue for its available third row, you’ll have to shop for a used model. That feature was discontinued for the 2018 model year.

There aren’t many 2018 compact SUVs that fall in the average price range of a used 2017 Rogue, but you could opt for a new subcompact SUV instead. The 2018 Honda HR-V starts at $19,670, and its relatively spacious cargo hold and sturdy build quality make it a solid choice. Though the cargo hold isn’t as large as the Rogue’s, the HR-V has more rear-seat legroom. The 2018 Mazda CX-3 ($20,110) excels where the 2017 Nissan Rogue fails to deliver. It offers sporty performance, while also delivering a refined interior and excellent safety scores. However, it has far less passenger space and cargo room than the midsize Rogue.

Which Model Year of the Nissan Rogue Is Best?

The 2017 Nissan Rogue is part of a generation that began with the 2014 model year and includes the 2018 Rogue. Over the years, the Rogue gained a few improvements. The 2017 Rogue received interior and exterior facelifts, and adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection became available. The 2016 Rogue saw the introduction of forward emergency braking as an optional safety feature. There isn’t a major difference between the 2014 and 2015 models, aside from standard satellite radio. You could consider even older models, but we recommend sticking with the current generation, as models before 2014 have lower safety and reliability ratings.

Which Used Nissan Rogue Model Is Right for Me?

The Nissan Rogue comes in three trims: S, SV, and SL. The base Nissan Rogue S trim does not come standard with much; it includes a 5-inch display, Bluetooth, satellite radio, hands-free text messaging capability, a four-speaker sound system, and a rearview camera. The SV trim should be enough for most buyers. This trim adds push-button start, a proximity key, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, blind spot monitoring, adaptive headlights, and rear cross traffic alert. Moving up to the top-line Nissan Rogue SL trim (only available as a 2-row SUV) adds a larger, upgraded infotainment system with navigation, a hands-free liftgate, leather upholstery, and a 360-degree camera. For the 2017 model year, Nissan introduced the Rogue Hybrid, which is reviewed separately.

What Does Nissan's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Nissan offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each Nissan CPO vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like rental car reimbursement, a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription, a Security+Plus Extended protection plan, towing, and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

According to our research, Nissan’s CPO program is about average for an affordable auto manufacturer. Mazda, Honda, and Chevrolet all have more robust programs.

2017 Nissan Rogue Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Nissan Rogue or 2017 Honda CR-V?

The Honda CR-V is a great SUV. In fact, it was named our 2017 Best Compact SUV for the Money and 2017 Best Compact SUV for Families. It features a spacious, comfortable interior and great safety scores. While it has a higher average price than the Rogue, the CR-V offers a bit more power with its available 190-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Buyers will also save about $2,600 on fuel, insurance, maintenance, and repairs over the course of five years by going with the CR-V. With its more spacious cabin and more powerful available engine, you’re better off going with the Honda CR-V.

Which Is Better: 2017 Nissan Rogue or 2017 Mazda CX-5?

The Mazda CX-5 was redesigned for the 2017 model year, and it features a more powerful four-cylinder engine that makes 187 horsepower. While the 2017 Rogue feels sluggish at highway speeds, the CX-5 delivers strong acceleration and sports-car-like handling. The CX-5 also has an upscale cabin, plus a bigger standard display screen and more rear-seat legroom than the Rogue. If you’re in the market for an SUV that delivers excellent driving dynamics, go with the CX-5.

How Many People Does the 2017 Rogue Seat?

The base Nissan Rogue model seats five. When equipped with the available third row, it can seat up to seven. The first and second rows of seats are roomy, and it's easy to find a comfortable driving position. However, the available third row feels cramped and is best suited for smaller passengers. Cloth seats are standard, while leather upholstery, heated front seats, and power-adjustable front seats are available.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Nissan Rogue?

The Rogue has two full sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the second-row outboard seats. There’s an additional upper tether anchor on the second-row middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-lowest rating of Marginal for ease of use, noting that some of the lower anchors are buried too deep in the seats.

2017 Nissan Rogue Features

Standard features in the Nissan Rogue include a USB port, Bluetooth, and an infotainment system with a 5-inch touch screen and smartphone app integration, a four-speaker stereo, and a satellite radio. Available features include an upgraded 7-inch touch-screen display, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, Siri Eyes Free, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a proximity key, a hands-free liftgate, and push-button start.
