Altima, Murano, and Rogue Named Best Vehicles for Teen Drivers

Altima, Murano, and Rogue Named Best Vehicles for Teen Drivers | Greenville, MS

It’s almost fall, which means your newly licensed teen driver will be back to school and ready for their very own ride. After you finish sobbing and wondering how your baby could possibly be ready for this level of independence, learn why the Nissan Altima, Murano, and Rogue make excellent vehicles for teen drivers.

 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a non-profit organization created to help reduce deadly vehicle crashes, is one of the most trusted organizations in the automotive industry because of its scientific approach to ranking vehicles based on safety. Each year, the IIHS makes recommendations of the best new and used vehicles for teens to help parents make good decisions for their new drivers.

 

This year, the IIHS named three Nissan vehicles to its 2021 honor roll of Recommended New & Used Vehicles for Teens. The 2021 Murano crossover and the Altima sedan, both of which received a Top Safety Pick+ from the organization, were named as two of the best new vehicles for teen drivers. On the pre-owned side, the IIHS recommended several model years of the Rogue and Murano crossovers because of their excellent crash test ratings and affordable price.

2021 Nissan Rogue Preview: What Changes You Can Expect

Nissan Rogue | Greenville, MS

At James Ceranti Nissan, the practical and compact Rogue crossover is a customer favorite. If you are looking to upgrade your ride in the coming months, we have a Nissan Rogue preview so you can learn more about the potential changes for the 2021 Rogue.

Though no official images of the 2021 Rogue have been released by Nissan yet, industry insiders have scoured design renderings and taken spy shots of prototype vehicles that give us a pretty good idea of what the Rogue is expected to look like. Experts believe the newly redesigned Rogue will have a squarer nose, a thicker rear support pillar, and a more aggressive grille and light signature.

As Nissan has not released official engine specifications for the upcoming Rogue, it is difficult to determine just how powerful the next iteration of the best-selling SUV will be. However, Motortrend speculates that the Rogue could feature the same 2.5-liter engine that powers the newest Altima. That engine produces up to 180 lb-ft of torque and 188 horsepower. The 2021 Rogue will likely continue the use of the continuously variable transmission and will almost assuredly come with an all-wheel drive option.

If you simply cannot wait until the 2021 Rogue begins arriving on our lot, visit James Ceranti Nissan to find the current 2020 Rogue in stock now.

2014 Nissan Rogue Will Have Three Rows

2014 Nissan RogueThere’s no denying that Nissan has been on fire this year, with all-new versions of the Altima, Pathfinder, Sentra, and Versa Note. We have already been blown away by these changes, but who could forget the Rogue? After all, it’s the second-best selling Nissan model in the US. We are excited to announce this second-generation SUV will receive a third row with seating capability for seven. But don’t expect this to make the Rogue feel smaller. Not only do the back and middle rows fold flat for storage, but so does the front passenger seat.

A light, airy redesign makes the cabin inside feel larger, but measurement-wise the new Rogue is only marginally larger than its previous model. The engine will be a four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, and will be available in front-wheel and all-wheel drive. Front-wheel models are expected to hit 33 mpg highway.

The new 2014 Nissan Rogue production will be moved to Smyrna, Tennessee, and believe it or not, Nissan is already taking pre-orders at its website. What do you think about the new 2014 Rogue? Do you think the larger capacity makes it more family friendly?
