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

By:

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

For 2021, the GLA-class is a clean-sheet redesign. While it still resembles the previous-generation GLA-class, the new model looks more premium inside and out, which will help it blend with the throng of Mercedes-Benz SUVs that launched for the 2019 and 2020 model years. It shares a platform with the brand's other small offerings, including the slightly larger GLB-class SUV and the entry-level A-class sedan.

Pros
Responsive handling,
lots of available features,
interesting design.

Cons
Cramped interior,
uncomfortable ride,
not as luxurious as a Benz should be.

The GLA has been fully redesigned for 2021.Part of the second GLA generation introduced for 2021.

Pros
Smooth ride and comfortable seats
Features one of today's best, most advanced infotainment systems
Mercedes badge at an affordable price

Cons
Most of the GLA's advanced safety features are optional
Too much road noise for a luxury SUV
Cargo capacity is small compared to Mercedes' GLB

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is the smallest and least expensive SUV in its lineup, and a welcome entry to the brand.

Pros
Stylish interior
Reasonably well-equipped
Roomier rear seats
Extensive options

Cons
Expensive options
Some options should be standard
Small cargo area
Can’t wait for the GLA45
