Top 3 SUVs: The 2021 Nissan Rogue Impresses!
The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has released the shortlist for the 2021 Car and SUV of the Year Award. It includes three finalists: the Nissan Rogue, the Mazda CX-5 and the Toyota Venza – that makes three Japanese models for the year 2021.
Your Baie-Comeau Nissan dealership and garage on the Côte-Nord, near Pointe-Lebel, Chute-aux-Outardes and Godbout, is proud to announce that its 2021 Nissan Rogue is among the top three compact SUVs. Proud dealer of the Japanese brand, the dealership offers you the full range of brand-new vehicles and is also the number one source for used cars in Baie-Comeau.
Three Japanese SUVs in Fierce Competition!
– The 2021 Nissan Rogue: A Shining Star!
At the starting line, the 2021 Nissan Rogue comes in three main versions: S, SV and Platinum. The first two are available with a choice of two- or four-wheel drive, while the Platinum version is available exclusively with intelligent all-wheel drive. The 2021 Rogue, with CVT automatic transmission, is also available with a manual transmission, according to your preference.
Even more surprising, the 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine is unchanged, although it offers more power than the previous model, increasing from 170 to 181 horsepower. Fuel economy is still one of its best assets: its combined average fuel consumption is 8.3 L/100 km but can be even lower thanks to Eco mode.
Speaking of driving modes, this vehicle can adapt to your driving at any time. Driving mode can be set to Normal, Sport or Eco, or Off-Road and Snow in the Platinum version. The driving experience is also greatly enhanced thanks to Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM). This standard package includes Active Lane Departure Control (ALDC), Active Suspension Control (ASC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Automatic Brake Assist (ABBA) and more.
Finally, what surprises most about this SUV is its attractive price, head-turning looks and spacious interior.
– The Mazda CX-5: Several Versions, but Expensive
It offers a dynamic driving experience, is available in 5 versions and depends on a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The GX, GS and GT versions are equivalent to the 2021 Nissan Rogue in terms of power and performance.
It has a spacious interior and all-wheel-drive capability, but it consumes significantly more fuel than its rival (8.2 L/100 km vs. 7.0 L/100 km for the Rogue).
Finally, what distinguishes the 2021 Nissan Rogue from the 2021 Mazda CX-5 is the price; it will cost you considerably less to purchase a Rogue than a CX-5, and that’s a fact!
– The Toyota Venza’s Return
After a long absence, the 2021 Venza model is stepping into the compact SUV category with a more assertive silhouette than its predecessor. Like all Toyota vehicles, it has a reliable and efficient 2.5-litre, four-cylinder engine with 176 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque.
However, the 2021 Venza is less efficient and more expensive than the Nissan Rogue and Mazda CX-5. It would be wise to wait a little while longer before purchasing this SUV to get a better idea of its performance and overall efficiency. Unlike the other two, the 2021 Venza is trying to make a comeback after a five-year break.
In short, among the top 3, the 2021 Nissan Rogue stands out and distinguishes itself from its rivals; it performs well, is efficient, spacious and is offered at an attractive price. It also stands out for its low fuel consumption, agility on the road and storage space. In addition, the Nissan Rogue has a new and more contemporary look this year, unlike its rivals.
