You might not be aware of this, but one of the lesser known meanings of the word “rogue” is a “dangerous solitary animal.” While Nissan might want you to perceive their Rogue as an elegant creature with the grace and aggressiveness of a big cat, they certainly don’t want their car to be “dangerous.” No worries there! The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently rated the Rogue as a Top Safety Pick+, the highest rating given out by the authoritative institution.
“Nissan has a long-standing commitment to safety and innovation, and this IIHS rating is a very important milestone for the all-new 2014 Rogue,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, for Nissan North America, in a press release. “Rogue is the second best-selling vehicle in Nissan’s lineup, and with its standard and available safety features, we’re bringing a new level of affordable technologies and innovations to a growing segment looking for fresh ideas.”
The Rogue achieved the Top Safety Pick+ rating despite the increasingly stringent criteria set up by the IIHS, making the award even more impressive. The SUV takes advantage of features like the Advanced Air Bag System and Active Ride Control to grant you perfect peace of mind behind the wheel.
