Shop the new Nissan Rogue:

Nissan sells more Rogue compact crossovers than any other vehicle it makes. For 2018, the Rogue maintains the cargo room, cabin comfort, and price point that have helped make it such a hit and adds a driver-assistance feature that would be less surprising on the features list for a luxury vehicle. The Rogue’s popularity makes it a great launching pad for Nissan’s new available ProPILOT Assist technology, which can help control speed and steering during single-lane highway driving and will eventually arrive in more Nissan vehicles.

All Rogues get a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder that produces 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and mates with a continuously variable transmission, earning ratings of 26 mpg highway, 33 highway, 29 combined in front-wheel-drive versions and 25, 32, 28 with all-wheel drive. Our reviewer calls the drivetrain underpowered and rough, but finds the cabin comfortable, roomy, and well laid out, and he appreciates the Divide-N-Hide system’s flexibility for cargo.

      Do you know the reason why it is slow or not fun to drive? I will tell you. It is because of its quality, it got the best quality and it is built to last. I drive Nissan Altima; very old car, and I love it so much it. It is like Getting married to a super model, who is a virgin and who will never cheat on you. Just remember, Nissan cars are built to earn and to obtain your loyalty.

      Most people want a swiss army knife. However there is no manufacturer that can give you the cargo capacity of a box truck and the 0-60 and handling of high end sports car, yet all the reviews seem to be based on this false premise. Yes, the Rogue "could be" a little more peppier, but if you want a sports car feel, get a CX-5. But don't complain that it doesn't have the cargo capacity of a Rogue - let alone a box truck.

      They need to offer the VC-T 2.0 engine in the Altima dammit! That would make the Rogue an perfect all-round vehicle. It's just too slow for daily all season use especially at altitude.

      I don't know about "slow and not fun to drive". If you can out run it, then yeah, it is slow. Remember, it is not built to race in a race track. It is designed to take from point A to point B governed with regulation and speed limits.

      Beware of the Rogue's automatic braking system! My daughter's 2018 model is activating the brakes for no reason! Dealer cannot replicate the problem but it's now becoming a complaint by other owners. You can bypass the automatic braking system via the dash controls, but, you must do this each & every time the vehicle is turned off & started again. Can the actual radar sensor be disconnected to keep the automatic braking turned off without having to key this info in each time the car is started?

      I got the first traffic ticket for over speeding when I was driving a rental Rogue. I didn't even feel I was driving at 90mph on a 70mph highway. I won't say rogue is slow or not fun to drive.

      My friend has a CX-5 and it's extremely fun to drive but it's not as comfortable, smaller cabin space, and much less cargo room.

      Screw CVT transmissions. Nissans are the worst in the business that’s why they had to extend the warranty. If I had to get a CVT it would be Toyota

      I don't have a pony is this race as I don't own a Rogue, but why when referring to automated safety features (@ 4:25), the pricing is being compared to the Honda Accord & Toyota Camry? That is an unfair comparison as one is an SUV and the other two are cars.

      Go test drive a Mazda CX-5 and you'll understand. I just bought a 2018 Rogue SV but my friend's CX-5 is by far funner to drive. I chose cabin space, comfort, and extra cargo room.

      No mention of how well its AWD handles snowy conditions? I don't expect to see cars like the Rogue tackling Moab, but some ugly snow is a different matter.

      We have a 2017 Rogue AWD SV.
      The only thing that will get this vehicle stuck is ground clearance. To say it excels in the worst driving conditions is an understatement. Drive with confidence!!
