Introduction

Nissan's Rogue is a striking alternative to well-established players in the compact crossover segment, one of the most important in the marketplace. To compete against the likes of the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V, the Rogue stands out with lots of equipment, usable size and daring looks -- if you prioritize those qualities, the Rogue deserves your attention.

All Rogues come with front-wheel drive as standard, and get a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine connected to a CVT automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional. The base S gets features like power windows, keyless entry, power mirrors, air conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, a trip computer, cruise control and a four-speaker audio system with auxiliary input and iPod integration.

The SV includes alloy wheels, a satellite radio with USB input, keyless entry and start, premium cloth seats, roof rails and a power driver's seat. Selecting the SL Package for the SV adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, navigation with SiriusXM traffic, automatic xenon headlamps, and an Around View camera that provides a 360-degree view around the car.
