2017.5 Nissan Rogue SV Hybrid vs SL Hybrid
In case you haven’t heard, the Nissan Rogue has received a new powertrain, and it’s one we find particularly exciting: A Hybrid. Fuel efficiency improvements have been a goal in the auto industry for some time, and it’s a particularly difficult task for SUVs as consumers demand more power and capability from the segment. With a mid-model year upgrade, the 2017.5 Nissan Rogue is now available, with two trim levels. So what differences can you expect between the 2017.5 Nissan Rogue SV Hybrid vs SL Hybrid?
Many times the jump between price points for Nissan trim levels is surprisingly small, but you’ll note that the 2017.5 Nissan Rogue SL Hybrid is a bit pricier than the SV. This extra cost comes from the price of features, rather than mechanical differences. Comparing them and picking the right model for you depends highly on what comforts and conveniences you feel are necessities for you.

Should you drive the Rogue SV Hybrid or SL Hybrid?
When it comes right down to it, the choice is entirely yours. Both models offer the same mechanical features – a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor for 176 net horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque – so the decision comes down to which features you feel are necessities.
The SV Hybrid trim includes all the essentials you need, from Bluetooth to push-button start and dual-zone automatic temperature control. When it comes to comfort, convenience and meeting your needs, the model is certainly no slouch. The SL Hybrid just happens to offer more. Instead of a simple rearview camera, it offers the Around View monitor so you can see better from every angle. Instead of a smaller touchscreen infotainment system with six-speaker audio, it offers the 7-inch with NissanConnect apps and built-in navigation and Bose Premium Sound.
