2012 Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Gas mileage is one of the reasons shoppers have turned away from bigger SUVs and toward smaller crossovers. The Nissan Rogue might satisfy them, though its fuel economy isn't as good as the best in its class.

The EPA rates the Rogue at 23/28 mpg, in front-wheel-drive form. For the all-wheel-drive model, the numbers drop slightly, to 22/26 mpg. While that represents a big improvement over mid-size crossovers, it's below the benchmarks set by the likes of the Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, and the upcoming Ford Escape. It's also significantly lower than the ratings for the four-cylinder Chevy Equinox.

It'll use less gas than most mid-size crossovers, but the Nissan Rogue isn't the most efficient compact ute.

No diesel or hybrid drivetrains are offered in the Rogue in the U.S.
