Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors

Pros
Remarkable exterior style
Flexible interior
Better advanced safety features
Good infotainment screen..

Cons
.but it’s not a touchscreen
Cramped interior for its size
Not as many options as others
No advanced powertrains

Can drive itself, at least a little
Great interior space utilization

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
