This Nissan Rogue video review includes information about fuel economy, pricing, interior space and comfort, cargo room, features and its competitor compact SUVs.
The Nissan Rogue has gone from one of the smallest compact SUVs to just about the biggest. That translates into a more comfortable and spacious backseat better suited for both adults and child seats. You can even get a third-row seat - though it's really only for kids and short journeys. The cargo area is also now one of the biggest in the segment and comes with a clever floor design.
The Rogue's cabin design makes it feel like you're sitting in a tall car, rather than a more utilitarian small SUV. Now, we can't say the same thing about driving the Rogue, as it lacks the quick reflexes of certain competitors. It's really more of a comfortable highway cruiser than an agile urban runabout.
The Rogue only comes with a 170-horsepower four-cylinder and a continuously variable transmission. This type of transmission behaves differently than others do, and you may find its noises and behavior to be unusual or even annoying. On the upside, it helps achieve better EPA fuel economy estimates than most competitors can.
Even the most basic Rogue includes a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, and an iPod interface. This loaded Rogue includes Nissan's easy-to-use touchscreen interface and navigation system, plus the sort of luxury, convenience and high-tech safety equipment now typical for compact SUVs. Its as-tested price is on par with its competitors.
The Nissan Rogue would likely make a great choice for your family, but there are a lot of great choices in the segment, so make sure to research and test-drive them all before making a decision.
