Last year, Nissan unveiled an all-new Rogue to strengthen its position in the compact crossover field. But its predecessor lives on under the name Rogue Select, a value-priced yet perfectly capable family vehicle for buyers who prize savings over the latest technology.

What's New for 2015
The Rogue Select carries on unchanged.
Choosing Your Nissan Rogue Select
Although it's now on a value mission, the Rogue Select's five-passenger interior doesn't show it. You're treated to high-quality materials and clever storage spaces throughout. With the split-folding rear seat stowed, you get a solid 60 cubic-feet of cargo room.
The sole engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 170 horsepower, matched to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Select performs quite well with this setup, scooting from zero to 60 mph in about 8.5 seconds, faster than most four-cylinder crossovers. Expect around 25 mpg in combined driving, or 24 mpg with the available all-wheel drive system.
To keep the cost down, the Rogue Select comes in a single S trim level with limited equipment and options. Standard features include basics such as air conditioning, power windows and locks, keyless entry and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player. The Select rolls on 16-inch steel wheels.
- The available Convenience package adds a bundle of useful touches, including a rearview camera, cruise control, Bluetooth phone, an audio display screen, two extra speakers, satellite radio and steering wheel controls. The exterior receives a rear spoiler and roof rails.
- The only other option to be considered is the Appearance package with 17-inch aluminum wheels and rear privacy glass.
Again, the Rogue Select is all about budget family transportation these days, so costlier upgrades like a sunroof and navigation are not available.
You really start to appreciate the Rogue Select's price appeal when you add options. All-wheel drive is a hands-down bargain at $1,400, and you can add both option packages for a total of $1,320.
