NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Today, Consumer Guideannounced the Rogue, Rogue Sport and all-new 2020 Nissan Versa as winners in its annual Automotive Best Buy Awards. The all-new 2020 Nissan Versa wins the award for the first time, with the Rogue receiving recognition for the 6th consecutive year and Rogue Sport earning its third consecutive award.
In choosing its annual winners, Consumer Guide evaluates over 150 new vehicles sold in the United States, selecting only the top vehicles in each class as Best Buys. In addition to objective ratings, a vehicle must also be 'a good dollar value' compared to competitors in its class.
'We're over the moon with the recognition the new Versa has received right out of the gate. We worked incredibly hard to deliver a fantastic vehicle and are extremely proud to be recognized by Consumer Guide for this achievement, said Rob Warren, director, and chief marketing manager, Nissan North America.
The all-new, third-generation Versa was a subcompact car winner for the first time. The refined and exciting sedan sports an expressive exterior, fresh interior and top-line technology that's a rarity in its class. In addition to Nissan Safety Shield 360, the Versa includes Intelligent Driver Alertness, Intelligent Cruise Control - all at an incredible price point.
Nissan's best-selling vehicle, Rogue topped the competitive class of compact crossovers for the 6th year in a row. Offering a highly desirable combination of ample interior roominess at an affordable price, it's the perfect vehicle for everyday use and family getaways. The 2020 Rogue features Rear Door Alert (RDA), the innovative Divide-N-Hide Cargo System and available Motion-Activated Liftgate in addition to advanced driver-assistance technology like ProPILOT Assist, Nissan Safety Shield 360 and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
The Nissan Rogue Sport topped the subcompact crossover category for the 3rd consecutive year. The 'right-sized' vehicle slots just under the popular Rogue but stands on its own with stylish, nimble and fun-to-drive appeal while providing similar advanced technologies and notable features.
'Awarded three Best Buys for 2020, Nissan continues to demonstrate its ability to deliver high-value small vehicles that are high in content, rewarding to drive, and well suited for
the lifestyles of busy Americans,' said Tom Appel, publisher, Consumer Guide.
