Being a small crossover SUV and a fairly innocuous-looking one at that the Rogue is about as mainstream as it gets. The Rogue has all the key qualities that buyers expect of a small crossover, including excellent comfort, top-notch safety scores, and spacious room for people and cargo. Seventy cubic feet of cargo space also helps make the Rogue one of the more versatile small SUVs on the market. Discover the ins and outs on used Nissan Rogues, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Versatile Interior StorageThe Rogue offers second-row seating that is split 40/20/40, meaning owners can easily fold down the left, middle, and/or right seats to provide more storage space if need be. Additionally, these seats are outfit with reclining seatbacks for further adjustability and comfort. Some versions of the Rogue also come with third-row seating best suited for small children. In the two-row configuration of the Rogue, the rear cargo area can be composed 18 different ways and is complete with a variety of storage compartments and multilevel shelving capability.
User-Friendly Tech OptionsStandard versions of the Rogue include a trip computer, a 5-inch central display, a rearview camera, and basic accommodations for Bluetooth and audio connectivity. However, the Rogue's SL package comes with a 360-degree parking camera (called Around View), a 7-inch touchscreen display, a navigation system, and voice controls that make it an appealing option for its class.
Refined Interior DesignOne of the more impressive qualities with recent editions of the Nissan Rogue is the presence of stylish interior design and materials. Generously padded armrests and a luxury-like dashboard layout, makes the Rogue a standout amongst its competitors. Furthermore, the NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats for the driver and front passenger seat offer an impressive level of comfort.
VisibilityPerhaps the biggest detractor with the Rogue is lack of quality rear visibility for the driver, making it especially difficult when attempting to maneuver in tight spaces. The standard review camera and 360-degree Around View camera available on select models helps mitigate the visibility issue, but it still serves as a pain point with this vehicle.
Open Road ExperienceThe acceleration ability on the Rogue is only satisfactory, thus making it difficult to make instantaneous decisions when executing merging maneuvers or utilizing highway passing lanes, particularly if you have a car load full of people and/or cargo.
Driver EngagementThis isn't to say that a person forgets they're operating a moving vehicle altogether, but moreso that the experience behind the wheel of a Rogue isn't exactly memorable. In addition to the lackluster acceleration, a somewhat unresponsive continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and bland, yet functional, handling makes the Rogue just another vehicle when taking it for a spin.
