Expert Quotes:

Cargo organizer a “skilled, simple innovation”

radio “interface easy to use”

The 2008 Nissan Rogue comes with plenty of standard equipment in both S and SL versions. All Rogues have standard air conditioning, cruise control, power windows/locks/mirrors, and a CD player with an audio jack, Edmunds reports. The SL adds 17-inch wheels, roof rails, and a driver-side height-adjustable seat.

The major options include paddle shifters for the CVT, a fold-down front passenger seat, a trip computer, and a Bose audio system with an in-dash, six-disc CD player. Satellite radio is also an option.
Some options are only available on the most expensive models, and that irked the tech writers at CNet: “Bluetooth is offered only in the all-wheel-drive version, while navigation isn't available.” They also felt the optional Bose audio system “produces only average audio quality.” But they did approve of the audio system’s controls; the interface is “easy to use,” and they “liked the audio controls on the steering wheel.”
Leather trim is also only available up the pricing scale, as is a sunroof, Kelley Blue Book notes.

Consumer Reports liked the “removable, foldable cargo organizer for the rear storage area,” which comes on the SL version. Cars.com thought it to be “one of the most skilled, simple innovations I've seen in a small SUV,” able to carry “about 10 lightly packed plastic grocery bags.”

Conclusion

If you want fancy options, be prepared to pay for the 2008 Nissan Rogue’s upscale SL version.

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.
