This third-generation Rogue SUV rides atop a new platform and includes more advanced safety and convenience tech as standard than its predecessors.

All-wheel-drive Platinum models like this one can expect to get 25 miles per gallon in the city, 32 highway and 28 combined. Roadshow's real-world testing suggests these are realistic fuel economy estimates.

Nissan says the Rogue is 5% more aerodynamic than last year's model, thanks in part to features like active grille shutters, underbody cladding and tire deflectors.

While base, front-wheel drive Rogue S models start at $26,745 delivered (including $1,095 destination fee), this top-rung Platinum AWD starts at $37,925 delivered. While that's quite a bit of money for a nonluxury compact SUV, it's something of a value price versus comparable models from Toyota and Honda.

Nissan says the new Rogue is inspired by its 2018 X-Motion SUV concept, and while the lineage is clear, the show car was substantially more aggressive and futuristic.

Platinum-specific creature comforts include Bose premium audio and a larger 9-inch touchscreen, plus there's wireless charging and wireless Apple CarPlay.

The Platinum gains a more capable version of Nissan's ProPilot Assist intelligent cruise control with lane centering. Known as ProPilot Assist with Navi-link, this system uses mapping data to proactively reduce speeds in curves, as well as at junctions and exits.

The Platinum trim features quilted semianiline leather, a higher-quality hide than what's offered on lesser trims.
