The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Nissan Rogue has a good feature set and great packaging for small-family use, but its performance and details aren't always delightful. The roomy, versatile 2011 Subaru Forester handles better than just about any other small crossover, though the need for a more modern transmission and a little more cabin refinement keep it from greatness.
