2016 Nissan Rogue

Pros: Fuel-economy numbers are among the best in the class; broad range of standard and available equipment; high-quality interior materials; availability of 3rd-row seat; generously sized, versatile rear cargo area

Cons: Mediocre acceleration; transmission isn’t as responsive as some class competitors; engine is noisy during acceleration; the 3rd-row seat is sized mainly for children

CG Says: The 2016 Nissan Rogue adds available forward-collision emergency braking, Siri Eyes Free capability, and NissanConnect telematics. The Nissan Rogue and Mitsubishi Outlander are the only vehicles in the compact SUV class to offer a 3rd-row seat, but not surprisingly, that seat is too small for most adults to sit in comfort. Rogue’s acceleration is also a bit sluggish, but its classy interior trimmings and outstanding cargo versatility rank among the best in its class.
