KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Scott Oldham -- Contributing Editor

A comfortable and fuel-efficient compact SUV, the perennially popular 2018 Nissan Rogue is the brand’s best-selling model and it’s one of just a few compact SUVs available as a hybrid. Offered in three trim levels, S, SV and SL, Rogue prices start just over $25,000, which is competitive for the segment that includes class-leading small SUVs, the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 as well as the Mazda CX-5 and Ford Escape. All models, including the Rogue Hybrid, are offered with front-wheel drive (FWD) or the more winter-capable all-wheel drive (AWD). Under the hood is a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine matched with a smooth continuously variable automatic transmission. While the Rogue doesn't own hard cornering like a Mazda CX-5, or tow like the new Ford Escape, it more than excels in its day-to-day excellence.

You'll Like This Car If...

Stylish both inside and out, the 2018 Nissan Rogue offers families and road-tripping adventurers exceptional comfort, space and value. The Rogue Hybrid is one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in this class.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Some may find the 2018 Nissan Rogue to be light on horsepower compared to the more powerful Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage and turbocharged versions of the Subaru Forester and Ford Escape. Also, the Rogue isn't expected to hold its value quite as well as the resale leaders: Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Kia Sportage.

What's New for 2018

For 2018, Nissan has added Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity to all new Roque models. Nissan’s ProPilot Assist autonomous technology is also available for the first time on the Rogue. It helps drivers stay in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. A motion-activated tailgate has also been added to the SV trim level. And with 3rd-row seating gone as an option, the Rogue now comes only in 2-row, 5-passenger form.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Nissan’s special sauce with the 2018 Rogue is its size. It’s perfect. The SUV is large enough to feel spacious inside and substantial on the road, but it’s also nicely compact, so it’s easy to park and it doesn’t feel like a barge around town. The Rogue’s ride quality is excellent, and it gives the SUV an overall relaxed gait, which most buyers in this segment will appreciate. Also, the Rogue’s cabin is quiet, even at highway speeds it keeps the sounds of the outside world outside. Visibility is excellent and the Nissan’s maneuverability is admirable, although the Mazda CX-5 is quite a bit more fun to drive. The hybrid model’s 176 horsepower isn't a significant boost over the non-hybrid's 170, but the immediate response supplied by the Hybrid's battery gives it crisper low-end performance from stoplights. It should also be noted that the Rogue Hybrid's fuel economy is significantly better than the non-hybrid Rogue.

Favorite Features

With this optional system, every seat in the new Nissan Rogue, aside from the driver’s seat, folds down to accommodate cargo. Yes, even the front-passenger seat fold rearwards, which makes it possible to haul long items like an 8-foot ladder or a serious surfboard.

Nissan loads up the 2018 Rogue with advanced safety systems. Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Safety Alert are standard on all models. The Rogue SL, which is the top trim level, gets standard Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection and Intelligent Cruise Control.
