I should have my new 2017.5 SV next week so I can only talk about my experience while shopping and road testing both the SV and Platinum. Poor rear and 3/4 visibility, low front ground clearance (I'll remove the lip under the bumper), no foot activated liftgate like on Rogue and Pathfinder, steering feel, stiff shifter, same old engine, besides OEM cross bars not many aftermarket ones available (Only Thule).
I found the cloth seat more comfortable for my back than the leather like one auto journalist reported. May have to do with the cooling mechanism on the Platinum?
I wish my SV could have been ordered with forward emergency braking, intelligent cruise control, predictive frontal collision; rumors has it that all versions will have this in 2018. If so, I'll bite my lip!
