The 2014 Nissan Rogue: What the critics say

How did Nissan's new Rogue fare with the critics? The price starts at $22,490.

Road & Track
“Nissan has finally given the Rogue the teeth it needs” to climb into the ring with the segment’s true giants. Flashing an all-new exterior, a seriously upgraded cabin, and “a spate of tech wizardry,” the 2014 Rogue presents such a compelling package of style, practicality, and value that it has vaulted “from back-of-the-pack obscurity to front of the class.”

Edmunds.com
“It’s hard not to be impressed with the Rogue’s fabulous new interior.” Soft-touch materials and “superb” front seats contribute to a “notably upmarket look and feel,” and clever engineering of the cargo area allows for an optional third row of seating. The Rogue isn’t the sportiest of all compact crossovers, but electronic assists smooth the ride and aid cornering, and tweaks to the continuously variable transmission help place it among the segment leaders in fuel efficiency.

Automobile
The holdover four-cylinder engine can now hit 33 mpg on the highway, yet it still “makes an unpleasant racket under hard acceleration.” Still, it’s hard to fault Nissan on that score “given the overall competence” of the new Rogue. “It’s exactly as good as it needs to be” to maintain its standing as Nissan’s second-best-selling vehicle. “Who can argue with that?”
