The redesigned Rogue is a major upgrade over its predecessor.
It is powered by a 181-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that's teamed with a continuously variable transmission, providing unobtrusive but unexciting motivation.
Fuel economy of 25-mpg overall is a bit behind the curve.
Interior space and quality of materials have improved, but the third-seat option is gone.
The new Rogue feels solid and substantial, with a firm yet composed ride and nimble handling.
Controls are easy to use, but the electronic gear selector may take some getting used to.
A new Platinum trim brings upscale touches, such as quilted leather seats, a head-up display, heated rear seats, and an upgraded infotainment system.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, and rear cross traffic warning.
