Since Subaru cut the Crosstrek Hybrid, Toyota has recently enjoyed somewhat of a monopoly on the mainstream hybrid compact crossover segment, but that all changes with the release of the 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid. Now, with its arrival here, the Japanese automaker has released a few more details, including pricing, for its new hybrid crossover.
The 2017 Rogue Hybrid bases from $26,240 for its SV trim level with front-wheel drive, which puts it at just $1,000 more than the SV FWD gasoline model. Folks needing all-wheel drive will shell out an additional $1,350. The range-topping model is the SL trim, which starts from $31,160 with front-wheel drive and jumps to $32,510 with all-wheel drive. Both trims also require an extra $940 in destination and handling fees.
The Rogue Hybrid doesn’t only have an advanced powertrain, it also boasts advanced safety gear. This includes available an Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detector, radar-based blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and forward emergency braking.
Under its hood, this newest addition to the hybrid crossover segment will include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and 30 kW electric motor to produce 176 total system power. Thanks to the electric motor’s instantly available 118 pound-feet of torque, the Rogue Hybrid is quick off the line. With front-wheel drive, the Rogue Hybrid gets up to 33 mpg city, 35 highway and 34 combined. All-wheel-drive models check in with 31 mpg city, 34 highway and 33 combined.
The Rogue Hybrid is on sale now at select dealers in 18 states throughout the West, Northwest and Mountain regions. More states should get this new hybrid as time goes on.
