Nissan Rogue Hits Canadian Ice Track

By | February 05, 2014
Winter has hit the U.S. and Canada hard this year with storm after storm. While that may not be the best thing to many dealing with the unrelenting weather, Nissan thought it was the perfect time to drag some Canadian journalists to Quebec's Laurentian mountains to test out the all-new Rogue on the ice-covered Mecaglisse circuit. The circuit, which was built as part of a 700-acre all-season motorsports facility in Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci, represents the most extreme situation drivers can encounter when looking just at traction. "There is no better place, even in Canada. We were looking for a special location to show the journalists what it is like to drive the Rogue in the true Canadian winter," said Christian Meunier, president, Nissan Canada, in a statement. The all-new Rogue was a hit among the journalists, and even managed to impress the owner of the track himself. Franck Kirchhoff went so far as to say that "the Rogue is one of the best SUVs that you can get." Those are some big words, and while we could go on about the new 2014 Nissan Rogue, check out the video below of the journalists testing the new model on this extreme circuit.

Thats a true test of the 2014 Nissan Rogue in the worst climate conditions. I definitely do believe that 2014 Rogue is capable of handling the adverse weather conditions in the Connecticut area and that video confirms it with all the latest additions to safety on-top of AWD and the Vehicle Dynamic Control system that Nissan has put in place. We wrote a writeup of the 2014 Rogue here:
