TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Nissan Rogue may not be very exciting, but it checks all the right boxes—and then some—for most family needs. The 2018 Subaru Forester continues to offer top safety scores, remarkable space inside, and all-round versatility; it’s still one of the best small SUVs, and a good value for money.
