2011 Nissan Rogue Styling

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.

Function comes first for the 2011 Nissan Rogue, but most will find its design aesthetically pleasing inside and out.

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.
