The redesigned exterior of the new 2014 Nissan Rogue delivers a premium, high-quality appearance without sacrificing the functionalities the customers expect from a vehicle from its class. Despite its compact overall size, the new Rogue offers a spacious interior made possible by its long wheelbase as well as by its short front and rear overhangs.
Compared to the previous generation of the Rogue, the length and the wheelbase of the new model were expanded by 1.2 inches and 0.6 inches, respectively, while its height is increased by 1.2 inches. Furthermore, the front overhang of the new Rogue was trimmed by 1.5 inches. Nissan also redesigned the rear doors of the 2014 Rogue to deliver a wider opening (77 degrees), allowing for ingress and egress to the rear passenger cabin.
Meanwhile, the new Nissan Rogue oozes with sportiness and confidence thanks to its sharp bodylines, while its large wheel wells and available 18-inch wheels and tires give the vehicle an assertive stance and sleek styling. By optimizing the A-pillar section and the shapes of the exterior mirror shapes, Nissan was able to reduce wind noise while lowering the Rogue’s coefficient of drag value by around 10 percent to a best-in-class 0.33 Cd.
Nissan likewise managed to reduce turbulence behind the body by optimizing the rear roof spoiler, rear side spoiler and the rear combination lights. The Japanese carmaker also provided the new Rogue with a host of underbody aerodynamic devices like a muffler spoiler, a fuel tank deflector, a rear bumper closing panel, a rear bumper closing panel, rear suspension cover, front tire deflectors and engine under cover.
