One model is proving popular as it provides a balanced delivery of all the necessities: The 2017 Nissan Rogue. For those eyeing up the model, the question is frequently not about whether it’s an attractive choice, but which trim level is the best?

The S and SV trims are the first two trims to start the lineup, with the Rogue also coming in a Midnight Edition, SL and both SV and SL Hybrid options. It’s the S that starts things off, with the SV building from what the S offers. What this means for you is that you can upgrade without fear of losing anything you value.

Is it worth upgrading the 2017 Nissan Rogue to the SV trim?

When it comes to picking trim levels, the main question ends up being a basic cost/benefits analysis: Is it worth the extra $1,220 to upgrade to a higher trim from your most basic option? For its price, the 2017 Nissan Rogue S is a well-equipped option, especially consider the standard driver assistance features like Blind Spot Warning, Forward Emergency Braking and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Mechanically, both models are the same, featuring a 170-horsepower 2.4-liter DOHC r-cylinder engine paired with the Xtronic CVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, with optional all-wheel drive as an upgrade. So what might encouraged you to move up a trim level?

The additional features found in the 2017 Nissan Rogue SV focus primarily on conveniences. The Nissan Intelligent Key provides a number of hands-free solutions that are convenient when your hands are full, while dual-zone automatic temperature control provides a nicer atmosphere over standard A/C.

One feature for those living in colder climates, such as northern Illinois, is the remote engine start system with intelligent climate control. When you get into your vehicle, it will already be warm and ready to go. That alone seems worthy of a double take, but if you aren’t convinced, stop by Glendale Nissan and compare these models side-by-side in person.
