Solid value, great handling

2010 Nissan Rogue SL 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Like others have said, this AWD is a best buy in it's class. I was looking for a fuel efficient AWD to handle the New England winters, although I can't vouch for how it performs in the snow yet. What impressed me most about this vehicle was the car-like feel when I first drove it (other competitors felt more like "mini-trucks") Coming off a V-6 minivan, it was important to me that the Rogue had a nice ride and it doesn't disappoint here even though the smaller engine is taking some getting used to.(acceleration is adequate however) The interior finish is nice for a car in this class (Premium Pkg., Leather, Moonroof) and so far I'm averaging 21-22 mpg, mostly around town driving.
gray leather interior, bose, lumbar support and hard to find Iridium Graphite exterior color! (unique, don't see yourself coming and going), best bang for the buck without question
bigger rear view (although personally visibility is not a major problem for me); back seat center armrest; built in navigation; compass; side door body guards; panoramic sunroof like the Hyundai Tucson
