Expert Quotes:

At a glance, one may confuse the 2011 Nissan Rogue for its bigger and fancier brother, the Nissan Murano.
Edmunds

We prefer the standard Rogue's handsome mix of chiseled edges and curvaceous lines.
Motor Trend

The grille has a perforated, hole-punched look.
Cars.com

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.
CNET

Cute, friendly, likable
Boston Globe

While the up-close details of the Rogue are starting to look a little dated this year with the introduction of a new Altima mid-size sedan lineup this year, as well as the recent redesign of some other 'legacy' designs like the Ford Escape, its rakish design still has an appealing silhouette—and one of the more carlike ones in this field.

Up close, the Rogue shows no signs of being rugged and ready for the trail (it's not, and there's no intent to be that); it's all crossover in its lines and language, all soft curves and bright trim, all the way back to its sloping roofline. From some angles its proportions can appear wider and longer than it actually is, and you probably wouldn't know that the Rogue is based on the same platform as the compact Sentra sedan (there are no significant pieces inside or out, really).

Nissan has added a bit of polish in recent years to the Rogue's interior, with more brightwork and chrome accents. While they don't work all that well on the outside (the grille seems toothy), the few accents inside help dress up what's otherwise a pretty plain interior. Otherwise inside, you see hints of the larger, more luxurious Murano crossover but for the most part it's made of odds and ends borrowed from the brand's other models.

Conclusion

The 2013 Nissan Rogue has a pleasing silhouette, though its details aren't all fresh.

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.
