Current Model
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.

2014-2020
2014 Redesign Year
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 One note: Don't confuse this Rogue with the previous model, which is outdated and was sold as the Rogue Select.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
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.
