Nissan Rogue

2018
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
The easy-to-drive Rogue is one of the better small SUVs. It is relatively roomy and 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 a continuously variable transmission. The CVT is not overly intrusive unless you tromp on the gas pedal. A hybrid is also available. Our AWD Rogue delivered 24 mpg overall. The interior is spacious for the class and is nicely finished. The rear seat is very roomy. Available safety gear includes lane-departure warning and prevention. For 2018, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking is standard. Nissan's ProPilot Assist system is offered as an option. It combines steering assistance and adaptive cruise control to try to make driving easier, especially in stop-and-go traffic.

2014-2017
2014 Redesign Year
Nissan Rogue 2017
The 2014 redesign made the Rogue bigger, better, quieter and more refined overall. It also produced a better ride than most other small SUVs. A tiny third-row seat was optional, while a backup camera was standard. A clever surround-view system was also available. The SV trim level with the Premium package will get you blind-spot and lane-departure warnings, a power liftgate, a surround-view camera system, and navigation. To get forward-collision warning, which has been shown to be effective in preventing crashes, get the SL with the Premium package. One note: Don't confuse this Rogue with the previous model, which is outdated and was sold as the Rogue Select.

2008-2013
2008 Redesign Year
Nissan Rogue 2013
Derived from the Sentra sedan, the first-generation Nissan Rogue ran from 2008 through 2013. Though it has a handy and compact size, cargo capacity is pretty puny and the sleek styling impedes the view aft. A rear-view camera is available; we suggest you find a Rogue fitted with the feature. The 170-hp, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine sounded a bit raspy at high revs, but averaged a respectable 22 mpg. The CVT worked well. Rogue's ride quality is supple and its handling fairly nimble. Convenience features include keyless entry and a removable, foldable cargo organizer for the rear storage area. Most controls and buttons are large and simple to operate. However, the climate controls are mounted low and there is no radio-tuning knob.
