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

Mildly redesigned for the 2011 model year, the Nissan Rogue continues into 2012 with no changes to its sleek, rakish design. Three years into its current generation, it's still pleasing to the eye, inside and out.

The Rogue looks fresh in the same way as Hyundai's latest Tucson, and the upcoming 2013 Ford Escape. Very few design cues call it out as an SUV: it's all crossover in its lines and language, all soft curves and bright trim, all the way back to its sloping roofline. If you instantly compare it to the bigger Murano, you're on the right track--and like the Murano, the Rogue's grille strikes us as too busy, but the rear end is drawn to a tight conclusion. The Rogue's proportions entirely disguise the fact that it's based on the Sentra sedan.

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.

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.
