Nissan Rogue Named as Winner of 2013 Edmunds.Com Best Retained Value Award

2013 model takes top honors for SUVs under $25,000

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2013 Nissan Rogue has been
named an 2013 Best Retained Value Award Winner, taking top
honors for SUVs under $25,000, with a retained value of 48.2 percent
residual value after five years. Now in its third year, the Retained
Value Awards recognizes brands and new car models that have the highest
projected residual values based on their average True Market
Value® (TMV®) price when sold new.

“The Rogue is one of Nissan’s best-selling vehicles, and value has
always been part of this equation,” said Jon Brancheau, vice president,
Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. “Customers recognize that they’re
getting lasting value from the Rogue’s combination of dramatic exterior
style, breakthrough technology such as Class Exclusive Around View®
Monitor and interior utility, storage space and functionality. Earning
this 2013 Best Retained Value Award accolade from further
solidifies Rogue’s place in a very competitive segment.”

All model-year 2013 vehicles that were launched by the end of 2012
and had unit sales in March 2013 that were at least 20 percent of the
average unit sales for the models in its segment were eligible for this
year’s model-level Best Retained Value® Awards. Edmunds determined each
model’s competitive segment based on its body type and the
sales-weighted average MSRP of all available styles (excluding
destination charges) of that model’s body type.

The 2013 Nissan Rogue offers a fusion of value and versatility,
coupled with emotional design, innovation and breakthrough available
technology, with the first non-luxury application of Around View®
Monitor. The 5-passenger SUV boasts a versatile 58 cubic feet of cargo
space, ample space for drivers and passengers, a 60/40 split rear seat
and an available fold-down front passenger seat. Utility is further
enhanced by numerous storage and ultra-functionality features, including
an oversized glove compartment, a large center console and a removable
and washable tray that fits below the cargo area for storing wet or
dirty gear and tools.
