The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Nissan Rogue's comfortable ride and versatile layout make it a good fit for a value-conscious small families--but it's far from exciting to drive. The 2012 Toyota RAV4 remains a strong, refined choice for families, even though some of its design might be a blast from the past.
