Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Nissan Rogue could beat the world of compact crossover SUVs, were it not for mediocre performance and safety ratings.
The Nissan Rogue covers the middle of the automaker's crossover SUV lineup. Tucked in between the teensy, utterly impractical Juke and the big three-row Pathfinder, the Rogue relies on good seats and interior space to move its metal.

Pros
Surround-view cameras are a must-have feature
USB and Bluetooth streaming, standard
Lots of safety features
Good looks

Cons
Carryover powertrain
Noisy under hard acceleration
Still a crossover...
...with a third-row seat?

The 2017 Nissan Rogue ranks 9 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Nissan Rogue is a solid, middle-of the-road vehicle. Nothing about the Rogue elevates it to the top of this fiercely competitive compact SUV class, but nothing about it is so terrible as to banish it to the bottom either.

Pros
Classy interior with upscale finishes
Large cargo area with innovative storage system
Excellent fuel economy

Cons
Transmission can be loud under heavy acceleration
Engine could use more power
Majority of driver assistance features are exclusive to top trim leve

By:

For 2017, the Nissan Rogue gains a new hybrid option, a slight styling refresh and additional sound insulation. Other available enhancements include a hands-free liftgate, adaptive cruise control with forward collision mitigation, remote ignition, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory functions and a premium Platinum Reserve interior package.

Pros
Best-in-class front seat comfort
Ride quality remains comfortable over varying terrain
User-friendly tech options
Versatile cargo storage

Cons
Weak acceleration
Poor visibility
Transmission is slow to respond
Advanced safety features are only available on top trim level

Mediocre handling and ride quality
Low predicted reliability rating

The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors
