The Nissan Rogue's positive attributes are tempered by its fair share of disadvantages.
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.
Despite some praiseworthy aspects, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is rated below many other compact SUVs in the segment. It gets high marks for seat comfort and cargo capacity, but the lethargic acceleration and poor visibility are sore points. The Rogue's pricing is enticing, but we recommend checking out the class-leading Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 as well. A new hybrid powertrain will debut this model year, promising a substantial gain of 7 mpg, but the battery pack will reduce cargo capacity, making it below average for the class.
