Central Coast Driving Is Demanding, the 2017 Nissan Rogue's AWD Is A Must Have

The Nissan Rogue stands out from the competition with aerodynamic styling. The V-Motion grille gives the Rogue a dramatic and aggressive look. The boomerang-shaped taillights are a welcome touch. The Midnight Edition package adds maximum black, with black 17" alloy wheels, Charcoal cloth seats, black exterior mirrors, Black splash guards, and black roof rails and crossbars.
