Looking for the Nissan SUV with the best fuel economy? Check out the Nissan Kicks! The 1.6L 4-cylinder motor in this crossover features a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System which independently monitors each valve for a more precisely controlled burn rate. This system contributes to an EPA-estimated 31 city/36 highway MPG, helping you cruise around without having to stop often to fuel up. 1
If you need a vehicle with extra cargo space for your groceries and weekend getaway bags though, the Nissan Rogue Sport is an ideal option. Seating for five allows you to bring along your family and friends while an interior passenger volume of 96 cubic feet creates a comfortable and roomy ride. When you’re traveling alone and need extra space for bulkier items, the rear seats fold flat creating 61.1 cubic feet of maximum cargo space.
The Nissan Rogue is the big brother to the Rogue Sport, offering more interior space with a passenger volume of 100.4 cubic feet. The larger stance of this SUV allows for a cargo area of 70 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. So, if you need a midsize SUV, get behind the wheel of the Rogue.
The 3.5L V6 engine in the Nissan Murano outputs 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque to create a unique and powerful performance on the highway. No matter where the road takes you, you’ll continue to enjoy a refined drive with available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. This system seamlessly switches from 2WD to 4WD as road conditions call for. So, if you want a Nissan SUV with superior performance through snow, rain, and ice, this might be the car for you.
Have a larger family and need extra seating? The Pathfinder features 3rd-row seating to allow for up to seven passengers. The 3.5L V6 engine equipped on this SUV generates 259 horsepower and 284 lb-ft of torque to help you tow up to 6,000 pounds.2 So, if you want a vehicle to haul your family’s lightweight travel trailer to your campsite, the Nissan Pathfinder can get the job done.
Kicking it up a notch, the 5.6L V8 engine in the Nissan Armada churns out 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque to help you tow a 25-ft-long camping trailer. Combined with the available Advanced 4WD System that continuously adjusts power distribution for maximum control through challenging road conditions, this SUV is designed to take you on some serious adventures.
