The easy-to-drive Rogue is one of the better small SUVs. It rides better than most competitors and is fairly quiet. Handling is sound, with prompt steering response and restrained body lean in corners. Power comes from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder mated to an updated continuously variable transmission that is not overly intrusive. Our AWD Rogue delivered 24 mpg overall. The interior is spacious for the class and nicely finished. The second-row seat is very roomy, and the small, optional third-row seat allows seating for seven in a pinch. A rear camera is standard, and available safety gear includes rear cross-traffic alert and forward-collision, lane-departure, and blind-spot warnings. A hybrid version with a 176-hp, 2.0-liter engine and the offering of more advanced safety features are new for 2017.
