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.

Not bad!

My Rogue SL is a very reliable suv; what I like most is very well build, strong and solid made it. Only I complain about a bit noise of the engine when I speed up the car and the GPS is not accurate enough; It was updated and stills results are not good. It saves gas in standard manner. On highway it’s stable with smooth driving. I recommend this car model if your family is small.


Problem with seat

Generally like the car, only reoccurring problem is the motorized seat. It was repaired once under warranty about 1year ago, same problem again, expensive repair. Not sure I will buy another.


Best Suv I've ever owned

Car met all my needs. Many people say it lacks power, but the 2018 rogue does just fine getting up to speed in fast traffic. Amazing value for buy, along with top safety features such as blind spot monitoring.
