U.S. News & World Report recently announced its top 25 Best Commuter Cars for 2019. This list showcased sedans and SUVs with excellent fuel economy, comfortable interiors, and affordable prices (all under $35,000). Both the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Kicks received spots on the list, proving that their efficient designs make them rewarding choices for a commuter vehicle.
The 2019 Rogue earned praise for its excellent fuel efficiency of 33 mpg on the highway, as well as its standard set of Nissan Safety Shield 360 features. Safety features on this model include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. U.S. News & World Report writer Joel Patel also commented, “When you’re commuting, the comfort-first nature of this SUV shines.”
The 2019 Kicks also received marks for its fuel-sipping powertrain. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine pairs with a continuously variable transmission to achieve 36 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg combined. The model’s interior amenities — like the Zero Gravity Seats, which are designed to help reduce fatigue by encouraging a more neutral posture when you’re behind the wheel— make even long drives more comfortable.
Celebrate these two models’ accolades when you stop by Ken Nelson Nissan to test-drive them for yourself.
