The redesigned Rogue is a major upgrade over its predecessor.
It's powered by a 181-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that's teamed with a CVT, together providing smooth though unexciting acceleration.
Its 25 mpg overall is decent for an all-wheel-drive SUV, but it trails the class leaders by a few mpg.
The new Rogue feels solid and substantial with a composed ride and nimble handling.
Interior space and material quality have improved, and the controls are easy to use, but the electronic gear selector may take some familiarity.
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 advanced safety and driver assist systems include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, RCTW, and LDW.
