2010 Nissan Rogue Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Offered in base S and uplevel SL trims, the Rogue is powered by a four-cylinder engine and is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Competition includes the Toyota RAV4 and Saturn Vue, and the Rogue seats five people.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

The Rogue looks a lot like its corporate brother, the Nissan Murano, especially when looking at its eggcrate grille and upward-sweeping D-pillar. For 2010, the Rogue features a new 360-Degree option package that includes privacy glass, a rearview camera, a rear spoiler and a chrome grille.

  • 16-inch steel wheels or 17-inch aluminum wheels
  • Standard power mirrors, optional heated mirrors
  • Standard chrome door handles
  • Optional front fog lamps
  • Optional xenon headlights

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.
  • 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

Under the Hood
The Rogue is available with front- or all-wheel drive. Steering-wheel paddle shifters are available.
  • 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 175 pounds-feet of torque
  • Continuously variable automatic transmission

Standard safety features include:
  • Side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability and traction control
  • Standard smart key that immobilizes the engine in an attempted theft

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
