New for 2009
There are no significant changes for 2009.
The Rogue looks a lot like its corporate brother, the Nissan Murano, especially when you're looking at its eggcrate grille and upward-sweeping D-pillar. At 182.9 inches, the vehicle is relatively long for a compact SUV. It's longer than its competitors, though at 70.9 inches wide it's narrower than the RAV4 and Vue.
- Available 16-inch steel wheels or 17-inch aluminum wheels
- Standard power mirrors, heated mirrors optional
- Optional front fog lamps
- Optional high-intensity-discharge headlamps
There's room for five in the Rogue's cabin. The driver and front passenger sit on bucket seats and face a fairly minimalist dashboard. Dash vents and control knobs are accented with silver-colored surrounds, and the instrument panel is dominated by two large gauges with orange illumination. An available flat-folding front passenger seat allows you to carry long items inside the SUV, and the second row features a 60/40-split folding bench seat.
Passenger volume comes in at 97.5 cubic feet, with 28.9 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. That measures pretty closely with the Vue, but the RAV4 is larger.
- Available cloth, two-tone cloth and leather seating
- Standard air conditioning
- Standard power windows and speed-sensitive door locks
- Optional leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter
- Optional Bose audio system
- Optional Bluetooth phone connectivity
- Optional keyless entry and ignition system
