The Family Car traveled to Northern California’s Apple Hill to test the family-friendly Nissan Rogue SV Hybrid, featuring a gasoline-electric system that saves fuel without sacrificing power.

The Rogue hybrid features an advanced, inline 4-cylinder gas engine and a compact lithium-ion battery to produce 176 horsepower that gets a combined fuel mileage of 33 miles per gallon.

Because the battery is so compact, the Rogue Hybrid maintains a flat rear floor for easy passenger access while still providing plenty of cargo space.

Available Rogue Hybrid safety technology includes Navigation with 7-inch touch-screen display, bird’s eye view Monitor, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Forward Emergency Braking.

Base price for the Nissan Rogue SV Hybrid is $26,240 for front-wheel drive, and $27,590 for the all-wheel-drive model.
