Expert Quotes:

The seats materials are good and the seats themselves offer good support.
AutoWeek

The seats were comfortable, and its cloth upholstery was unoffensive in its pattern and texture.

Seating is uncomfortable for long trips.
CNET



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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
