Expert Quotes:

At a glance, one may confuse the 2011 Nissan Rogue for its bigger and fancier brother, the Nissan Murano.

We prefer the standard Rogue's handsome mix of chiseled edges and curvaceous lines.
Motor Trend

The grille has a perforated, hole-punched look.

the styling is sparse, but the not in the decidedly understated way that VWs and Audis manage to pull off. Instead, the Rogue's cabin is just dull.

Cute, friendly, likable

The Rogue gets something of a mid-cycle design refresh for 2011, but you'd have to look hard to see the differences. That's fine, as the Rogue's sleek, rakish design still looks fresh. With its gently arced roofline and a more aggressive tuck downward in back, the Rogue has more of a 'lifted' station wagon appearance than is the case for most crossovers. Its proportions appear wider and longer than it actually is from the outside, and few would guess that the Rogue is actually based on the compact Sentra sedan.

Up close, cues from the larger Murano give it a hint of upscale. New wheels, added chrome accents, and new front and rear spoilers go a long way toward enforcing that.

Inside, the five-passenger Rogue gets a chunky interior design that borrows a bit from all of Nissan's cars and crossovers. With cues like an aggressively hooded gauge cluster, the interior feels sporty and a little more cockpit-like than those of other crossovers. However the materials can still feel a bit drab up close.

Returning for 2011 will be the stylish Rogue S Krom Edition, which gets special 18-inch wheels, a center-exit sport-tuned exhaust, a unique grille and bumper with fog lamps, and other styling tweaks.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
