Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Nissan Rogue may not be very exciting, but it checks all the right boxes—and then some—for most family needs.

Pros
Lots of standard safety tech
Can drive itself, at least a little
Great interior space utilization
Rides well
Optional hybrid

Cons
Light on power
Transmission drones on and on
Hardly fun to drive
Base model looks very basic
Hybrid’s not that thrifty

The 2018 Nissan Rogue ranked #10 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Nissan Rogue has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 44 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Upscale interior
Spacious, versatile cargo area
Top-tier gas mileage
Lots of advanced safety features, even in base model

Cons
Underpowered engine
Noisy transmission

For most uses — commuter, family and recreational — we'd recommend the SV trim with the optional Premium package. The latter adds useful features such as a surround-view camera system, navigation and a power liftgate. You also get some of the SL trim's more desirable items without the larger wheels that can detract from the ride quality.

PROS
Front seats are comfortable on long drives
Ride quality remains comfortable over varying terrain
Tech options and features are user-friendly
Cargo space is vast and versatile

CONS
Outward visibility is poor
Transmission responds slowly and with an annoying "surge" feeling
Acceleration is weak and listless
