2022 Nissan Rogue

Pros
Cons
Verdict
Durable design, capacious seats, cutting-edge interior, economical fuel usage, and heavy-duty.
The controls for the infotainment system are a bit fiddly and take quite some time to accelerate at highway speeds. The most appealing models come with high associated costs, subpar standard warranty coverage, and lackluster handling.
The Rogue is designed to be a significant hybrid, but the driving persona doesn't excite one enough.

Does it have any competitors or rivals?

Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5, Volkswagen Tiguan.

Which one do we recommend?

The SV model, which is priced midway, has the best set of characteristics for the price. Some of the highlights include 18-inch aluminum wheels, an eight-way power-adjustable 360-degree exterior camera system, and Nissan's ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving mode. The SV Premium option, which includes a panoramic sunroof, a power-operated rear liftgate, roof rails, and faux-leather upholstery, is also something we'd consider.

What about its availability?

The Nissan Rogue is currently available at all Nissan dealerships near you.

What about its performance and handling?

The only engine in the vehicle is a 1.5-liter three-cylinder with 201 horsepower, which is plenty for getting around the neighborhood. While it is more capable than the Rogue's previous four-cylinder engine, it can be difficult to accelerate to highway speeds or overtake other vehicles. The engine also drones during high acceleration. The continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) accurately replicates the shifts of a standard automatic transmission. It runs smoothly, though not necessarily evenly.

How utilitarian is it?

When properly equipped, this Nissan can carry up to 1,500 pounds.
