Fans have been asking for one thing for quite some time now and finally they have been given what they wanted. This is the Nissan Rogue in hybrid variation, which is going up against the Toyota RAV4 hybrid next year.
Both of the compact models have taken their place as the second and third best-sellers among the SUV/crossover market. The Rogue has been slightly behind the RAV4 but the margin has been a small one.
If it wasn’t for the hybrid version of the RAV4, Nissan would have shot past Toyota months back and it is thought that the tables could be about to be turned next year.
The Nissan Rogue hybrid has the 2 litre engine with four cylinders and the 30kWh electric motor which offers a combined output of 176 horses. The RAV 4 hybrid on the other hand is superior as it offers 194 horses thanks to the 2.5 litre inline-four engine with the two electric motors.
The Nissan Rogue hybrid offers 34mpg combined if you take it in the FWD and 33mpg in the AWD. The figures are the same as the Toyota rival, but what about pricing?
The Nissan Rogue hybrid price tag hasn’t been revealed just yet, but it is thought to be in the range of $26,000. The price tag of the RAV 4 hybrid is $27,900 for the entry level.
