The 2014 Nissan Rogue may be categorized as a compact crossover, but this latest building-wrap billboard along the 405 freeway near the Los Angeles airport is anything but small.

I haven't spent a lot of time in our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue, but one thing popped out to me immediately. Recessed knobs. Yes, I'll admit I get obsessed with the weirdest things.

The above photo is a glimpse into a usual day in the life of an Edmunds editor. That's my afternoon commute. Our 2014 Nissan Rogue displays real-time traffic on its map. Unfortunately, it's always red in my direction.
The irony of our jobs is that we get many cars to drive and test, but we're usually stuck in L.A. traffic.

There's a "Pure Drive" badge on our 2014 Nissan Rogue.
Does that mean it's a hybrid? No.
A hydrogen-powered Rogue? Nope, not that either.
Those would be reasonable guesses, but they give that little badge too much credit. Turns out "Pure Drive" is simply a name for what Nissan says is "our action to improve fuel economy of engine-powered vehicles."

This quick shot of the center display in our 2014 Nissan Rogue test vehicle doesn't really do justice to the system's fantastic graphics.

Let it be known immediately that I am no fan of sunroofs. I'll spare you the rant.
Our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue has a sunroof. A big panoramic job. And what do you know, it can tilt. However, there's a caveat to its tilting function.

I spent the last few days tooling around in our long-term 2014 Nissan Rogue running errands, driving kids to school, and driving grown-ups to a fancy Mother's Day dinner.

Yes, this one falls into the no-brainer category. You would expect there to be a handy storage tray in the center console of a modern crossover like the 2014 Nissan Rogue, but that's not always the case.
Sometimes, the enclosed section of the center console takes up all the space, while other times this area in and around the shifter is used purely for cupholders or control buttons.

We've written a few updates already about the LED headlights on our long-term Acura MDX. But going largely unnoticed so far is that our 2014 Nissan Rogue has them, too.

Among the many changes to the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue is the addition of new safety features. Specifically, our loaded-up Rogue SL comes with 360-degree parking cameras, frontal collision warning, lane departure warning, rear cross-path detection and blind-spot monitoring.
Other popular small crossovers (CR-V, CX-5, Equinox, Escape, Forester and RAV4, for instance) offer some combination of these features but only the Rogue offers all of them. If you want maximized vehicle-based assistance for not crashing into things from your small crossover, the Rogue is at the ready.

The bird's eye view parking camera is starting to become mainstream now and for good reason. Of all the parking aids that have been added to modern cars, it's one of the most useful.
There's no doubt that the backup camera is a big help when easing into a space. No more "feeling" around for that bumper behind you.

Driving into the sun is no fun, especially when a vehicle's sun visor isn't big enough to prevent you from getting zapped in the eyes. Thankfully, the 2014 Nissan Rogue's designers realized this and equipped this compact crossover's big windshield with equally generous visors.

The compact SUV segment is crowded and Nissan is clearly trying to load up the 2014 Rogue with features to elevate it in the rankings. Currently the Nissan Rogue is in 4th place behind the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4.

You might not be familiar with the Nissan Rogue, but more than 160,000 were sold last year, making the compact crossover the second-best-selling vehicle in the company's lineup. Nissan wants to keep that momentum going in the face of stiff competition from Ford, Honda and Toyota, so the Rogue received a full redesign for 2014.
