2014 Nissan Rogue: Armrest Report

August 18, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

I don't know if I have particularly bony elbows or what my problem is (don't answer that last question) but I pay special attention to armrests, both door and center, and how well-padded they are.

I absolutely can't stand it when I get into a car and there's either near-zero padding or your elbow falls readily onto a piece of plastic trim.

So: how are the armrests in the 2014 Nissan Rogue?

2014 Nissan Rogue: Rear Vents Revisited

August 15, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

As Executive Editor Ed Hellwig pointed out earlier this year, our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue's climate control system offers rear vents for backseat passengers. However, we've found that the vents do little to increase the comfort of the rear seat riders during the hot summer months.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Hauls More Than You'd Think

July 22, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

Just back from our annual wine country road trip in the 2014 Nissan Rogue. Several of my colleagues have commented on the compact crossover's roomy cargo hold, so we decided to really put it to the test.

On the way up from Southern California to the Napa and Sonoma regions there were four adults and luggage for a long weekend, not a terribly challenging load.

On the way back we lost our two passengers, who flew home. But we kept some of their luggage and augmented that with eight cases of wine (not all for my cellar; we buy for a small group of enthusiasts).

2014 Nissan Rogue: Las Vegas Road Trip Observations

July 11, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

A hot summer weekend in Las Vegas: the perfect time and place for...a librarian's convention? Perhaps not. They must have got a screaming deal on hall space in the heat of summer. Nevertheless, my non-librarian wife had business there, so the four of us loaded into the 2014 Nissan Rogue and headed out across the desert on a recent Friday evening.

The odds of escaping town without hitting traffic were not in our favor, so we left at 8:00 p.m. It wasn't late enough. The Rogue's navigation system showed the dreaded dark red line extending some 80 miles east on Interstate 15 from just past Barstow.

So we took Interstate 40 and some deserted two-lane Mojave Desert back roads instead.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Terrific Front Seats

June 17, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

If there's an area Nissan continues to get spot-on these days, it's the seats in its cars and SUVs. Particularly the front ones. And it's no different with this 2014 Nissan Rogue.

I was suffering from a sore and tired lower back when I got into the Rogue to drive to work this morning (I'm blaming it on a hard mountain bike hill workout, not old age), yet almost instantly the seat's support, in all the right places, made me feel better.

Nissan calls these seats "zero gravity," and says they were inspired by NASA.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Solid Rear Seats

May 30, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

Rear seats tend to be afterthoughts in most crossovers. Other than the ability to fold, second row seats don't often have much in the way of features.

2014 Nissan Rogue: Glad To See Rear Vents

May 23, 2014

2014 Nissan Rogue

Midsize crossovers often offer rear seat entertainment systems, rear seat heaters and even rear window shades, but rear air conditioning vents aren't always an option. No idea why as it seems like anyone stuck in the back seat would at least want to be comfortable if not entertained.
