New 2020 Nissan Rogue – Release Date and Info

Although the new 2020 Nissan Rogue suffers from a subpar performance relative to its competitors, it still remains a pleasant enough small crossover SUV. Some of its strengths include a versatile interior storage, user-friendly tech options, a smooth highway ride, and an optional third-row seating. Its release date, although speculative at the moment due to the scanty data available, should be expected sometime in the 2nd Q of 2020 .

The redesigned 2020 Nissan Rogue comes with likable aspects in this increasingly crowded compact crossover segment. Some of the most notable aspects available on this family-oriented model include upscale interior materials, keyless ignition and entry, a practical passenger and cargo space, and, quite uncommon among compact models, its ability to offer a seven-passenger seating capacity.

Nevertheless, the model comes with a fair share downsides including a noisy and tepid acceleration, a compromised visibility, a forgettable driving experience, and a lackluster CVT. Additionally, we have found its lofty EPA fuel economy ratings are rather hard to be replicated in real-world driving.

In overall, Nissan hasn’t done much to invigorate the 2020 Nissan Rogue and make it stand out in its category, but it’s still worth a look if comfort and space are priorities. Some of the Rogue’s competitors in the segment include the fun-to-drive 2020 Mazda CX-5, while the 2020 Honda CR-V is for those who want a superior all-round competence.

An unremarkable time of 9.3 seconds is needed to get past 60 mph with the Rogue SL AWD model.

It is estimated by EPA the FWD models should be able to return 33/26/28 mpg on the highway/city/combined, and 32/25/28 mpg with the AWD version. Although they are solid figures, it has been claimed they are difficult for real-world replication.

2020 Nissan Rogue Release date

We should expect the 2020 Nissan Rogue’s release date sometime during the second half of 2020, at least according to latest reports. An MSRP starting from $23,290 shouldn’t be surprise when it finally ends up at your preferred dealer. No reports have surfaced about the Nissan Rogue Select model but we’re keenly following new leads.

New 2020 Nissan Murano – Release Date, Specs & Info

The five-passenger 2020 Nissan Murano is a pleasant and versatile midsize crossover with spacious and upscale interior, and nice balance of fuel economy and power. We recommend it for anyone looking for an upscale, V6-powered crossover without having to pay a premium for a luxury brand. Its release date should be expected sometime in the middle of next year.

Thankfully, there is a suitable amount of function to go along with the exterior and interior style. This has been achieved even with the perception that a crossover SUV isn’t the kind of vehicle that can boast a bold styling. For conservatives, these are vehicles that are more geared towards providing ample passenger and cargo capacity and plenty of comfort amenities over style.

However, the Murano might be among some of the notable exceptions you can find in the market today. It is a vehicle that offers lots of utility such as ample passenger and cargo volume, with the latter capable of filling to the brim with kids’ sports equipment and groceries.

While there are many appealing and compelling reasons why the Murano should be liked, the new model doesn’t offer any radical changes over the previous model thanks to the previous redesign done in the recent past. The only changes that the Murano seems to brag about include the sleek roof line and dramatic curves, and plenty of upscale technology updates.

Once you’re seated on the comfortable and supportive seats the Murano offers, you’ll notice it offers plenty of space to stretch out, and the seating is comfortable regardless of whether you are seating alongside the driver or in the backseat. Plenty of standard features are offered as well, and there is extensive use of upscale materials such as leather upholstery and wood trimmings.

The ride quality is superb relative to what the competition offers, and you can rest assured you’ll get a respectable fuel economy and a smooth acceleration. Even so, the segment offers desirable alternatives such as the 2020 Toyota Highlander, 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the 2020 Honda Pilot. For a more engaging handling and performance and matching features to the Murano, we recommend you check out the 2020 Ford Edge.

2020 Nissan Maxima – Release Date, News and Rumors

The redesigned 2020 Nissan Maxima is sporty and upscale and worth a look if you’re searching for a car that’s more exciting than a typical family sedan. It offers plenty of features for the money, hush and well-appointed cabin, and a sporty driving character. Its release date should be expected sometime during the 2nd Q of 2020 .

Without a doubt, the new model is one of the more dramatic-looking sedans to come out this year. It sits 1.3” lower and is 2.2” longer than the model it is replacing, enabling better aerodynamics and sleeker styling.

For starters, the Maxima has always been Nissan’ luxury leader, but a too-similar resume to the Altima and a conservative styling have made it a tough sell for many consumers in recent years. This could change with the debut of the all-new model later on next year. Nissan has made concerted efforts to make it a stand out between the entry-level luxury cars and mainstream family sedans.

Overall structural rigidity has improved while the curb weight has reduced slightly, changes that Nissan says contribute to handling and fuel efficiency. The engine department however remains the same in terms of output but suspension upgrades are inevitable.

Cabin technology has been improved.  A new touchscreen technology is in place and allows the driver to customize it the way he feels best. Upper trims’ surfaces are stuffed with leather and simulated suede upholstery, which contribute to the Maxima’s sporty and premium feel. In overall, the interior design looks and feels luxurious than before.

Like wearing high heels to a daylong party, sacrificing functionality over style has its own detriments. In the quest to achieve a sleek appeal, the Maxima has given up some chunk of its rear seat space. Hopefully, there are some options available in the segment that can offer you a bigger backseat if that’s what you’re after. Spacious sedans include the 2020 Hyundai Azera, 2020 Buick LaCrosse, 2020 Toyota Avalon, and 2020 Kia Cadenza.

Rear wheel drive competitors include 2020 Hyundai Genesis, the 2020 Chrysler 300, and the luxury branded 2020 Acura TLX. Others include the 2020 BMW 3 Series, and the 2020 Audi A4. But if you’re looking for a fun and sleek-looking family sedan that’s still relatively affordable, we think the 2020 Nissan Maxima is an excellent choice.
