Two years after its redesign the 2016 Nissan Rogue will come with a number of enhancements
2016 Nissan Rogue
Time waits for no auto manufacturer, especially in the highly-competitive compact crossover segment. This means that despite the fact that sales of the Rogue, in June, were up 54.3 percent year over year and overall sales are up 36.3 percent for the year, Nissan will be making changes to its offering for the 2016 model year.
"The crossover segment, particularly small crossovers, is the hottest part of the automotive market right now," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, U.S.A., Nissan North America, Inc. "The Nissan Rogue is leading the sales growth pace and has not yet shown us the upper limits of the potential in the market."
With seven consecutive year-over-year sales gains since it was launched in 2007, it's obvious any changes don't need to be drastic. But to keep the kettle boiling, so to speak, seven tweaks are on the way.
