I went from an 2007 Altima to the 2010 Rogue 360. I love the AWD and sitting higher up to see over snow banks in the winter. It handles very well in the snow (better than the Altima) I do miss my Altima, just really loved that car. The Rogue is on a Sentra base and Murano has the Altima base on it. Overall, I am very happy with the space, the pick up, reliability and design.
Gas mileage, AWD, height of vehicle and mp3 adaptor.
Blind spots in rear view. Worst blind spot is over the left shoulder when changing lanes. The back up camera is a must (part of 360 pkg). When it rains can hear the car driving on the water (did not happen in the Altima).
