2013 Nissan Rogue S Overview
If You’re Considering the 2013 Nissan Rogue in the Detroit Area…
Nissan has updated their crossover for the current model year, and the 2013 Nissan Rogue is a step up from previous models, offering a solid choice for Detroit drivers seeking a small crossover vehicle. Critics have praised its capable handling, smooth ride, and comfortable front seats, and with two trim levels, features abound. Offered in either front or all-wheel drive, buyers get a 2.5L four-cylinder engine with 170 hp, and features at the base level include keyless entry, cruise control, folding side mirrors, and air conditioning.
However, Detroit drivers looking for a well-equipped crossover should begin their search with the 2013 Honda CR-V. The founder of the crossover class, the CR-V has been the go-to option for small family vehicles since its inception, and Honda’s dedication to redefining standard options keeps their crossover in a league of its own. Standard on the base model CR-V LX are Honda’s innovated i-MID infotainment system, Bluetooth handsfree smartphone link, rearview camera system, and much more at no extra cost. Trying to get an entry-level Rogue S with any of these features will put an even bigger dent in your wallet.
Take a look at the breakdown between Honda’s standard options and what Nissan offers:
