Expert Quotes:

Cargo organizer a “skilled, simple innovation”
Cars.com

“navigation isn’t available”
CNET

“the enormous glovebox is more useful than some convertibles' trunks”
Edmunds

As a new model in 2008, few changes have been made for 2009.  They include new auto speed-sensing door locks, while SL models get a fold-down front passenger seat, driver seatback pocket, dual-level center console tray, mood lighting, a drive computer, outside temperature display, two luggage-side cargo hooks, and dual-visor vanity mirror illumination. The Leather Package option is now available for Rogue FWD SL models, as well as a Bluetooth hands-free phone system and Nissan Intelligent Key for the Rogue FWD Premium Package.

The 2009 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 trip computer, and a Bose audio system with an in-dash, six-disc CD player. Satellite radio is also an option.
Consumer Reports likes the “removable, foldable cargo organizer for the rear storage area,” which comes on the SL version. Cars.com thinks it's “one of the most skilled, simple innovations I've seen in a small SUV,” able to carry “about 10 lightly packed plastic grocery bags.”
Some expected options are not available on either model, and that irks the tech writers at CNET: “navigation isn't available.” They also feel the optional Bose audio system “produces only average audio quality.” But they approve of the audio system’s controls; the interface is “easy to use,” and they “liked the audio controls on the steering wheel.”

Conclusion

The Rogue lacks some tech features like a navigation system, but it delivers impressive cargo-storage solutions.

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.
