Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
With an all-new model scheduled to hit showrooms in mid-2013, the Nissan Rogue gets only a handful of updates for the 2013 model year. A new Premium Edition package replaces last year's Premium Package, while the carryover Special Edition Package now includes Bluetooth connectivity and a 6-speaker audio system.
For 2012, Nissan adds a Special Edition package to the Rogue lineup that includes steering-wheel audio controls, RearView monitor, a USB port, satellite radio, foglights and more. All 2012 Nissan Rogue crossovers also receive a new Sport mode switch for the CVT transmission, while the SL package gains the Around View Monitor that displays a 360-degree view outside the vehicle.
New for 2010 is a 360-degree Value Package for the S trim and a new Krom Edition. The Value Package adds 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, privacy glass, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated rearview monitor, a rear spoiler and chrome grille. The Krom Edition touts a unique grille, wheels, exterior styling and paint.
With gas prices rising in recent years and consumers looking towards more cost-effective transportation, it is no surprise that so many automakers have joined the small-crossover party, offering SUV-like vehicles with much more agreeable fuel economy. This year Nissan decided to throw its hat into the ring, introducing the aggressively-styled and nimble Rogue. The base model is comparatively bare (to meet its under-$20,000 price-point), but the long list of available features, including Bluetooth and all-wheel drive, means that the Rogue can be customized to suit just about any lifestyle. The Rogue stands to compete in a rapidly growing segment, against the likes of the established and successful Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and the redesigned Saturn VUE. With competitors like these and a lack of an available V6, the Rogue's price and fuel economy may be its best selling points.

"i've had this 2008 rogue for 3 months and almost 9000 miles and love every mile of it. i didn't want a big vehicle to replace by totalled grand caravan; but wanted many of the bells and whistles. best is the moonroof, BOSE sound system, bluetooth. CVT took some getting used to (sounds like the clutch slipping when flooring it), but very happy with the pick up for a 4 banger. mileage has been excellent - cruising on flat roads at 55-60, i can average over 30 mpg. if you need a big vehicle, with power to tow and carry lots of stuff, don't get this. but if you need something for commuting (i drive over 160 miles/day), am almost 6' and occasionally carry my wife, 2 adult children, and some gear (and Scotties), then this is perfect."

"I just bought this car about a month ago and I love everything about it! It's extremely comfortable, handles like a dream, and gets pretty good gas mileage for a car its size. I was rear ended by a Dodge Charger after only 2 weeks of owning it and while my Rogue has only cosmetic damage, the Charger had to be towed away with significant front end damage. I wasn't injured at all and I'm very impressed with how well it stood up to a heavy car like a Charger. This is the perfect vehicle for someone who wants something that drives like a car but also wants to be higher up off the road and in something a little bigger."

"Cheap maintenance. Quite and easy to drive. Also can save much gas while you are not embarrased by the internal space of your car."
