The appeal of a certified used SUV is understandable. They offer great practicality with a near go-anywhere ability. Fortunately, for those interested, there is quite a selection of quality pre-owned SUVs to peruse from on the market each with their own strengths available at a reasonable price point.
One of the best-selling SUV on our lot is the second-generation Nissan Rogue. Prices for a base trim higher mileage 2015 model starts from around $14,000, while a mid-range lightly worn SV 2017 model will be asking for around $27,000.
You’ll get a similar experience regardless of which end of the spectrum you opt for, but the 2017 model received a minor facelift with restyled lights, front grille, and standard LED daytime running lights. Every model got a 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated inline-4 paired with a CVT, which provides adequate, if unimpressive, acceleration for daily use. It manages a rated combined fuel economy of 8.6 l/100km.
If you've paid attention to the Ontario car market, you may realize that the whole compact SUV segment is really beginning to gain traction and grow. The appeal of them is simple, you get the perks a tall-riding SUV enjoy while avoiding many drawbacks that a stout, large and bulky SUV suffer.
Cue the Nissan Rogue, Nissan's entry into the tough, saturated compact SUV market. In fact, the used Nissan Rogues are one of our best-selling SUVs in our dealership. Not only that, it also won AutoPacific's 2017 best in class award, proving that it does have credence to compete with its similarly impressive peers.
There are currently two generations of Nissan Rogue, the first ran from 2007 to 2013, the second is still being produced from 2013. We'll be touching on both.
