Does the Nissan Rogue Offer Third-row Seating?

Nissan’s crossover SUV, the Rogue, is a recognized leader in the compact SUV segment, but, does it have three rows of seating? The answer is yes, and no. The Nissan Rogue had the option for third row seating, but the feature was dropped in 2018 with focus being put towards maximizing cargo space and passenger space for five. Don’t lose hope, though, Nissan has options yet!


Nissan Pathfinder

The first option is the Nissan Pathfinder. The Pathfinder seats seven people in three rows, and it comes with Nissan’s EZ FLEX seating system. This means the second row can slide back and forth, providing an extra five inches of legroom to the second or third row. The second and third row of seats also reclines for added comfort. There’s also a unique LATCH AND GLIDE system, which makes it so a  child’s car seat can slide forward when installed in the second row, that way the third row is easily accessible for other passengers. The Pathfinder is powered by a 3.5-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) DOHC 24-valve V6 engine, and produces 284 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 259 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm.


Nissan Armada 

The Armada is the largest in Nissan’s lineup. Its three rows seat up to eight passengers. Adults will fit comfortably in any seat, including the third row. The third-row seats are power seats. The split-folding seats will lie flat with the simple push of a button. All the Armada’s seats can fold flat. With seats folded, there are 95.4 cubic feet of cargo. The Armada is powered by a 5.6-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine and produces 390 horsepower at 5,800 rpm, and 394 ft-lbs of torque at 4,000 rpm. 


As you can see, Nissan has more third row seating options if your needs require it. Should you have your heart set on the Rogue though, here’s more information on the current lineup.
