2016 Nissan Rogue at Auto Solutions

Overview and What's New

Overview of 2016 Nissan Rogue

Redesigned in 2014, the Nissan Rogue impresses with its sleek aesthetics and practical design, making it a top pick at Auto Solutions Motor Company. Known for its excellent fuel efficiency, spacious interior, and strong safety features, the Rogue caters to families and individuals in Fairview Heights and the surrounding areas such as Belleville, Collinsville, and Granite City, who seek dependable transportation for both daily commutes and adventurous outings.

What's New in 2016 Nissan Rogue

The 2016 model of the Nissan Rogue introduces significant enhancements that boost its safety and technology. The NissanConnect system has been expanded and now includes Siri Eyes Free for the SL trim, improving driver connectivity and convenience. Additionally, the introduction of forward emergency braking and a stylish new appearance package for the base Rogue S model underscores Nissan’s dedication to both safety and style.

Performance and Economy

The 2016 Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Coupled with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), it offers a balance of performance and fuel efficiency. Despite some critiques about the CVT's response under heavy acceleration, the Rogue remains a top choice for eco-conscious drivers in the East St. Louis and Swansea areas due to its competitive fuel economy.

Interior and Comfort

Inside, the Nissan Rogue excels with its adjustable second-row seats, ample cargo space, and user-friendly controls, including physical knobs for radio and HVAC. Although the optional third-row seat is compact, it adds flexibility, making the Rogue a versatile option for larger families in communities like Columbia and Smithton.

Safety Features

Safety is a priority with the 2016 Rogue, which features forward emergency braking in the SL model and excellent safety ratings. At Auto Solutions Motor Company, we recommend the Rogue to our customers from Freeburg, Caseyville, and Cahokia who prioritize safety and peace of mind in their vehicle selection.

Auto Solutions Pro Tip Of The Day

When shopping for your next vehicle, understanding trim levels can significantly enhance your purchasing decision. Trim levels determine the different versions of a model, each equipped with unique features that cater to various preferences and needs.

For example, a power driver seat is often available in higher trim levels. This feature adjusts electronically, providing better comfort and support than manual adjustments, ideal for those who spend considerable time on the road. It's a small upgrade that can make a big difference in your driving experience.

Alloy wheels are another common feature associated with upgraded trims. Not only do they offer aesthetic appeal to your vehicle, but alloy wheels are lighter and stronger than standard wheels, which can improve the handling and efficiency of your car.

Lastly, consider the benefits of All-Wheel Drive (AWD). This feature, which is often available in various trim levels, provides superior traction in challenging weather conditions, such as snow or rain, enhancing safety and performance.

At Auto Solutions Motor Company, we recommend considering these options when selecting your vehicle. Whether it’s the comfort of a power driver seat, the durability of alloy wheels, or the safety of All-Wheel Drive, choosing the right trim level can significantly enhance your driving experience.
