Redesigned for 2014, the Nissan Rogue has a new look inside and out. It also has more legroom for front and rear passengers. Front-row legroom has grown by a half-inch, and in the backseat, there’s 2.6 inches of additional legroom — helpful for accommodating child safety seats. Nissan also added an optional third row to the 2014 Rogue, but our test car didn’t have it.
How many car seats fit in the second row? Two
What We Like
- Both the rear- and forward-facing convertible fit well, though it took some work to connect to the Latch anchors.
- To fit the rear-facing infant seat in the Rogue, we had to move the front passenger seat
forward a little bit, but our tester still had plenty of legroom.
- The high-back booster seat installed easily in the Rogue. The buckles can be pulled out of pockets in the seat cushions, so they’re easy for young kids to grasp.
What We Don’t
- The Rogue has two sets of lower Latch anchors, which are positioned between the cushions in the outboard seats, but they’re tough to use because the firm seat cushions block access. One of the anchors also is blocked by a seat belt strap, which is one more thing to wrestle with during installation.
- The outboard seats’ tether anchors are three-quarters of the way down the seatbacks, which is the same level as the removable cargo floor. The middle seat’s tether anchor is positioned in the ceiling — closer to the liftgate. When in use, this will block the driver’s rear visibility.
