2018 Nissan Rogue review: Our expert's take

What it is: The five-seat Nissan Rogue is a compact SUV with a standard four-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage, Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4. Nissan also sells the smaller Rogue Sport SUV, which is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

A 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is now standard. The SV trim level gains a motion-activated liftgate, while the range-topping SL trim adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

Nissan's ProPilot Assist driver-assist technology is available for the SL trim. Designed for highway driving, the system can help steer the Rogue to keep it centered in its lane, maintain a set following distance to a vehicle directly ahead and help manage stop-and-go traffic.

DON'T buy one

Just made my second payment on my 2018 Rogue I bought from Jeep Nissan of North Haven CT. I never got to put 1,000 miles on it when the transmission died. Thank goodness they had a new transmission on hand to replace mine. I was told it was covered under warranty, and it would take six days to replace and drum roll... they would not give me a loaner! Other than the car being VERY unreliable, she looks good, and is very comfortable but hey what can we expect for a little over twenty grand today. And it has inspired me to fix and hold onto my 2006 Ford F150 so I will have a reliable back up!


Best SUV for the price. Awesome style and comfort.

It's the best SUV with all features within decent price. You have all safety features like blind spot in the base model. I test drives Honda CRV and Rav4 and then decided to go for a Rogue.


Rogue system chassis control error and battery iss

I have replaced my battery 4 times. It has less than 18,000 miles on it. Now I’m having gps issues. Today it just stopped working with an error message Error chassis control system error. I bought this car as my husband and I wanted a dependable vehicle. I’m so dissatisfied and disappointed. After reading many reviews, it appears I may not be the only individual who is disappointed. I will now have to trade this in for a reliable vehicle
