2013 Nissan Rogue Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality

The 2013 Nissan Rogue is missing some interior refinement, and its front seats might not provide the kind of support that some shoppers want, but outside of those potential issues it's a nicely packaged, versatile, and roomy crossover.

Head and leg room aren't the issue in the Rogue, but the front seats themselves could use some improvement: they feel thin, and could benefit from thicker padding to make longer trips easier. In back, the seatbacks recline for better comfort, and they fold down to boost cargo space. That space, even with the back seats up, is ample, and the cargo floor is quite low. Even when you have the back seats up, cargo space is adequate for a typical grocery run.

The 2013 Rogue has a great layout for families; we only wish it were quieter inside and that the front seats were better.

At first drive, the Rogue feels a little bit at odds with its crossover mission, as its front-seat layout is a little lower and more laid-back than that of other crossovers; but with some seat time, it makes sense. And it helps to remember that this is a model that's pitched toward suburban driveways and city streets, not off-road trails.

Ride quality in the 2013 Rogue is good, but by no means luxury-car refined. Some surfaces can bring out too much road noise, as well as the pitchy motions that are typical in taller, shorter-wheelbase vehicles.
