2014 Nissan Rogue: Instrument Flight Rules
August 21, 2014
Maybe you can see the problem here. The 2014 Nissan Rogue is a nice enough crossover even with a lousy transmission, but you really can't see squat behind and outside of it. Now, this may be a biased photo, taken from around the center of the dash for demonstration and not wholly representative of the driver's perspective.
But as you can see: There's a lot of dead view here. From the narrow, possibly Kia-inspired tiger nose rear glass, to the large swath of plastic at the D-pillar and the headrests, there's not much for a driver to do except take a quick scan, study the mirrors and, when in reverse, fly by the rearview camera.
