Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.
Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).
Smog Rating Smog Rating The Smog Rating represents the amount of health-damaging and smog-forming airborne pollutants the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Owner Reports

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Road Test

Rather than Rogue, Nissan could have named this redesigned SUV "Mr. Congeniality." True, that's not very macho, but the model stands out as an easy-to-drive, family-friendly vehicle. And it now ranks among the better small SUVs.

The new Rogue has grown larger and more accommodating; it has a spacious cabin, easy access, and plenty of room in the rear seat. Refinement has improved dramatically, with a relatively quiet and more comfortable ride than is usual in this class. Other enhancements include more responsive handling, improved fuel economy of 24 mpg overall, and a better-calibrated continuously variable transmission that's smoother and quieter than the previous version.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2016 Nissan Rogue owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Body Integrity

Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.

"Water leak from sunroof"

Peter P., NC (2016 Nissan Rogue SV 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"I have had the car for two months and last week the rear window started leaking when it rains. It is a steady stream coming just to the side of the brake light. It runs all down onto the hatch and down into the cargo area. I am taking it to the dealer for repair this week"

Anonymous, NC (2016 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)

"The back window would leak when it rained, water would run down inside the window to the cargo area. They first thought it was the seal around the middle brake light and replaced that. That did not fix it so I took it back a 2nd time. They said they wanted to replace the entire window and that they wanted to replace another Rogue's window at the same time so I had to take it back a third time. I was given a Versa to drive while my car was being fixed and I feel that it should have been a comparable vehicle to a Rogue. Replacing the window did fix the leak."

Marshall D., NC (2016 Nissan Rogue SL 2.5-L 4 Cyl)
Squeaks or rattles

"The seat squeaks with any movement (ie, the material inside the seat). The front left corner of the seat squeaks. The front left and right windows rattle because there is not enough insulation type material preventing movement. I have to lower the window to keep them from rattling. There is a rattle coming from under the steering column area that is pronounced when accelerating."

Driveshaft or axle

"I noticed the car RPM gauge would accelerate and then return to normal, same would occur when car was on cruise control. Final indication was when I got off the highway and stop at the top of the ramp, when I tried to accelerate truck was not only sluggish but I thought would not get through the intersection, but it did eventually get moving and a few days later took it to dealer for repair."

Electrical failure

"During a period of 2 months I would be driving on the highway when without warning the car would be travelling 100kmh and the speed would drop down to 60kmh. Flooring on the gas pedal did nothing. It was terrifying especially when you're in the middle lane and can't get over to the shoulder because of traffic and the truck behind you has no idea that my speed is limited. This is called a limp mode. This happened at least 7 times during this period. As well the ASC alert would come on and the brake lamp switch was replaced 3 times because many times I would drive with the brake lights on. To rectify all this Nissan rewired the engine and dash."

Transmission Major

Transmission rebuild or replacement, torque converter, clutch replacement.

What Owners Say

Transmission rebuild or replacement

"A month or so ago the CVT transmission started hesitating. Then it occasionally wouldn't shift and it would cause the RPMs to go up significantly at a low speed making it un-drivable and unsafe. It had around 54,000 miles when this started. It is currently at the dealership and the CVT transmission is being replaced free of charge because of the 60,000 mile/5 year powertrain warranty."
