2014 Nissan Rogue review: New Nissan Rogue takes tech lead among competition

The Rogue fits between the Juke and Murano among Nissan's crossovers, and at just over 15 feet long, it's on the small end of its segment. A base model goes for $22,790, but the fully loaded SL model I tested, with all-wheel drive, rung in at $32,915. If you look at the Nissan website, you will also see a model called the Rogue Select, with a base price of $20,150. That model is actually the previous generation Rogue, which Nissan said was so popular it will continue offering. Although the engine specs look the same for Rogue and Rogue Select, the new generation pulls in significantly better fuel economy.

In the UK and Australia, the Rogue goes by the name X-Trail, with prices starting at £22,995 and AU$31,276, respectively.

As typical with crossovers, the Rogue offers a comfortably high seating position for good visibility, a rear bench that can hold three passengers, and cargo area of 32 cubic feet. Increasing its utility, however, is an optional third row, although this feature is not available in the SL trim. That third row is going to be small, and will likely take a youthful body to squirm back into it. Without the third-row seating, this Rogue came with a variety of smuggler compartments under the cargo floor. With the middle row folded down, cargo area increases to 70 cubic feet.

LED headlights, which came as part of the SL Premium package, are rare at this price point and, up until now, unheard of in the segment. These lamps occupy angular new casings rimmed by LED daytime running lights. At night, the LED headlights illuminated the surroundings with a well-defined bright white light pattern. Given LED technology, those lamps will have a limited draw on the battery and rarely need replacement. While these headlights include auto-leveling, to keep them from blinding traffic in front when going up hills, they don't actively illuminate turns.

Surround view

Every time I parked the Rogue, I appreciated the surround-view cameras, which come standard in the SL trim. Putting the car into reverse, the dashboard LCD not only showed the view out the back with a trajectory overlay, but also a top-down look, so I could see how close my wheels were to the curb. The head unit included a button labeled 'Camera' that activated the surround view when the Rogue was moving forward at slow speeds. Although I am a veteran at parallel parking, the camera let me accomplish the whole task faster, without touching other cars or curbs.

The camera view showed up on a 7-inch touchscreen LCD, also standard for the SL trim. The lesser trims, S and SV, come with a 5-inch display, primarily for audio information. The touchscreen's graphics, showing the interface for navigation, stereo, and phone systems, weren't pretty. However, I liked the quick response and the haptic feedback from the interface. Whenever I touched one of the button areas on the display, I could hear a palpable click, useful when I was on the highway and keeping my eyes on the road.

I thought the flash memory-stored navigation system was a bit rudimentary until I started using it. The maps were clear and easy-to-read, but nothing special. However, when using route guidance, the system showed lane guidance and larger graphics for freeway junctions. Traffic data, brought in through satellite radio, offered more extensive highway coverage than I have seen previously.

The most advanced feature in the navigation system came through NissanConnect, an app integration feature in the Rogue. With the NissanConnect app running on my phone, I could access Google local search, either through voice or manual entry, on the Rogue's touchscreen. The system let me select any result and set it as a destination.

Typical with app integration in cars these days, Google search is buried under a few menus rather than included as an option under the navigation system's destination entry options. And rather than letting me access voice entry for Google search using the car's general voice command system, activated by a button on the steering wheel, I had to find the Google search feature on the LCD and start voice entry from a touch icon.

NissanConnect offers a number of other apps, such as iHeartRadio, Slacker, TuneIn, and Facebook, with more coming. My iPhone had to be plugged into the Rogue's USB port to run NissanConnect, but Android phones will work over the Bluetooth connection.

The Rogue's main voice-command system proved very advanced, as it let me request music by name when my iPhone was plugged into the USB port, enter addresses for navigation as a complete string, rather than step-by-step, or initiate phone calls by saying the name of a contact in my phone. Helpfully, the car's LCD showed a list of available commands.

Beyond the USB port and Internet-based streaming, the Rogue's head unit handled satellite radio and Bluetooth streaming, but no HD radio. The Bluetooth streaming interface was limited, not letting my select music through the car's interface.

Music played through a nine-speaker Bose audio system, another standard feature with the Rogue's SL trim. I liked the audio clarity from this system, and how well it handled higher volumes, but bass wasn't particularly strong, lessening its punch and audio depth. The SV trim Rogue gets stuck with a non-branded six-speaker system, while the S trim only gets four speakers, with neither offering options to upgrade.

CVT improved

The Rogue's drivetrain remains the same at all trims, and four-wheel-drive comes as a $1,350 option in the US. That means a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT). The specs, 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, are the same for the 2014 Rogue and the previous generation Rogue Select. However, the new Rogue earns EPA fuel economy figures of 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, when configured with four-wheel drive, about 4 mpg better on average than the Rogue Select.

Nissan gives credit for the improved fuel economy to a new CVT, which offers a wider gear ratio and more efficiency over the outgoing CVT. I have long felt that Nissan's CVT was the best in the business, and this one responded as well as past versions I have driven. However, instead of programmed shift points, as I had seen previously, this one merely included a low range and a sport setting.

My fuel economy average dropped below the official city mpg, to 24.8. The trip computer told me I was getting above 30 mpg on the highway, but it dropped precipitously in city driving, bringing my average way down.

There isn't much special about the engine itself, unless you want to get into Nissan's variable valve timing for the double overhead cams. The power figures are pretty typical for this engine configuration, and enough to adequately get the Rogue down the road. The CVT was the true star here, making for smooth acceleration and bringing forth the power when I needed it. On a flat-out run, the CVT let the engine rev and hold up around 6,000.

In the day-to-day, I found the Rogue a comfortable and uncomplicated driver. A smooth-riding suspension and natural-feeling heft for the electric power steering system leant to comfort on rougher roads or in stop-and-go traffic. Although using a fixed suspension, Nissan implemented something it calls Active Ride Control, which apparently applies a little braking and throttle to smooth over bumps. I can't say I noticed that system working, except possibly in my positive regard for the ride quality.

With the CVT and the smart key, which unlocked the doors based on proximity and enabled the push-button start, the Rogue made for the type of transportation I didn't have to think much about.

However, the Rogue is ready for more than suburban errands. Nissan fits the Rogue model, at all trims, with a Sport button, affecting throttle and the CVT program. When I pushed it, not much seemed to happen. In fact, it took me a while to notice the very faint Sport label lit up on the speedometer face.

Pushing the Rogue hard along a twisty road, however, I noticed the CVT holding the engine speed up a bit higher than normal, holding in the 3,000 to 4,000 range and running higher when I got on the gas. It wasn't exactly a thrilling ride, as the engine's 170 horsepower didn't make for palpable thrust.

In tight turns I felt understeer, but the Rogue delivered a nice feeling of stability, likely due to what Nissan calls Active Trace Control. This system uses braking and engine torque to help pivot the Rogue in the turns. I mainly noticed this system working on the instrument cluster display, which has a neat screen called Chassis Control. In the turns, it showed when Active Trace Control was doing its job.

Ultimately, though, if I'm looking for an SUV to canyon carve, I'll turn to the Nissan Juke NISMO .

Nissan gives the Rogue some off-road capability with a locking differential for the four-wheel-drive system. Generally, the Rogue will bias torque to the front wheels to help fuel efficiency, but hit the AWD Lock button, and an electronic differential holds the torque split at 50 percent to the front and 50 percent to the rear wheels. That capability might keep you from getting stuck in snow drift.

I ended up driving the Rogue through some deep, soft dirt in a construction zone, but didn't have to resort to the AWD Lock. Instead, the car plowed along, cutting a trail through the dirt and doing a decent job of holding the course I set.

Nissan previously pushed driver-assistance technologies far in its Infiniti brand. The Rogue benefits from this work with lane-departure warning, collision warning, and a blind-spot monitor, all features that come with the SL Premium package.

For blind-spot monitoring, which alerts you if a car is in the next lane over, Nissan puts the warning lights at the base of the Rogue's A-pillars. I found this placement, and the dim illumination of the lights, to make the alerts virtually unnoticeable, defeating the purpose of the system. The Rogue alerted me to lane drift or if it thought I was approaching another traffic ahead too rapidly with a beeping alert, which could have been a little louder.

I'm surprised that Nissan did not tie any form of automatic braking to the collision-warning system, which might mitigate or prevent low speed accidents.

Feature-rich

A multitude of innovative features puts the 2014 Nissan Rogue in the tech lead for the economy crossover segment, something that you can experience directly, and some that work under the surface. Tipping over $30,000 for a fully loaded example, the Rogue offers LED headlights, a surround-view camera system, and numerous driver-assistance technologies, all features you don't find at this price level.

The navigation head unit, while lacking an aesthetically-pleasing interface, works well and offers good app integration. The ability to run Google local searches and set the result as a destination is a key feature, while the many other apps integrated through NissanConnect will give the Rogue appeal to the always-connected driver.

The Rogue's driving character and utility are both excellent. The Sport mode will likely not get much use, but for general driving and errand-running, the Rogue has a lot to recommend it. The locking differential for four-wheel-drive versions makes a nice extra. I wasn't that impressed with my average fuel economy. If you drive in stop-and-go traffic frequently or dense urban environments, expect to get less than the EPA estimates.

    Exterior

    The Rogue Select also has a large, sweptback D-Pillar that gives it a sportier look compared to what other compact SUVs offer.

    The Nissan Rogue Select suffers from the same dated look as a lot of the company’s models outside of the GT-R. Nissan really does need to up its game as far as giving customers vehicle that at least look the part of modern-day models, not recycle ones that looked good 10 years ago.

    But all isn’t lost, if you look at the bright side of things. For one, Rogue Select does ride on the same platform as the Sentra, giving it handling befitting a car with an SUV’s body. The Rogue Select also has a large, sweptback D-Pillar that gives it a sportier look compared to what other compact SUVs offer.

    The crisscross radiator grille is also a unique feature to the Rogue Select, something even the 2014 Rogue doesn’t carry. Whether that’s attractive or it’s just a different take on an otherwise lackluster look, that’s your call. But at least Nissan is giving you the chance to choose, right?

    We’re not gonna bust the Rogue Select’s interior chops too much because expectations weren’t that high to begin with. Once you hop inside the SUVs interior, you’ll be treated to a cabin that has Nissan’s simple, straightforward, and attuned to functionality design. Lots of soft-touch finishes are easy on the eye and the contour-forming front seats feel very comfortable.

    Space also isn’t an issue with legroom and headroom space good enough to allow comfortable seating even for tall drivers. But that comes at the expense of the rear space, which isn’t big enough to begin with. Push back the front seats and you’re looking at a cramped space to sit three adults.

    The Rogue Select’s cabin also has adequate storage space, thanks to a larger-than-usual glove box and a cargo area just behind the reat seat that’s going to take a lot of investigative might to find at first search.

    Drivetrain

    Power is alright, but not enough to reach what other models have at their disposal. The Rogue Select comes with a 2.5-liter, inline-four engine that produces 170 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 175 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm. No performance numbers were given, but seeing as the output is similar to the 2014 Rogue, that could also translate to a 0-to-60 mph time of 7.8 seconds to go with a rather pedestrian top speed of about 118 mph.

    Prices

    Here’s where it gets good for the Rogue Select compared to the standard Rogue. Essentially, this model is cheaper with a starting price of $19,990 for the S FWD model. Compare that with the $22,490 base price of the 2014 Rogue and you’re looking at a savings of $2,500. Even the S AWD (note: all-wheel drive, baby!) model of the Rogue Select is cheaper at $21,340 than the base Rogue.

    Options

    Competition

    Toyota RAV4

    Here’s where it gets hairy for the Nissan Rogue Select. It belongs in a market that not only lets it compete against its own (the 2014 Rogue), but it also has to deal with a dreamy compact SUV in the Toyota RAV4. Boasting off a fresh new look that has received plenty of thumbs-ups, the RAV4.

    The new RAV4 is not only redesigned both inside and outside, but it also receives new in-cabin technologies, a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, new six-speed transmission and new safety features.

    The engine, in particular, is similar to what the Rogue Select has: a 2.5-liter inline-four that produces 176 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. Essentially, you’re splitting hairs with the performance, although you can make a case that even with similar output, the Rogue Select doesn’t look nearly as attractive as the RAV4.

    It is cheaper, though, which Toyota should be mindful of as the RAV4 starts at $23,300 for the LE FWD grade and goes all the way up to $28,410 for the Limited AWD model.

    Ford Escape

    If the Nissan Rogue Select is already sweating the presence of the Toyota RAV4, it’s probably getting nightmares just thinking about having to compete against the Ford Escape, aka "America’s best-selling SUV".

    Whoops.

    It’s not helping the Rogue Select’s cause to know that Ford recently gave the Escape a fresh upheaval of its own last year, adding in as much as 11 new exclusive features and an improved fuel economy, to go with its improved looks that really speaks to what young buyers are looking for.

    The Rogue Select does "out-pony" the Escape, but just like the RAV4, the difference is pretty miniscule with the Escape boasting of a 168-horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque output under its hood.

    The base model of the Escape, the S, retails for $22,700 with the top-of-the-line Titanium trim fetching $29,100.

    Conclusion

    The 2014 Nissan Rogue Select isn’t going to blow you away with its all-around capabilities, but if you’re in the market for a compact SUV that’s spacious, affordable, and has the added treat of being an all-wheel drive, you’d be hard-pressed to find one that offers what the Rogue Select has at its disposal.

    • Love it

      • Competitive engine
      • Cheaper than the competition
      • Looks distinct compared to the standard Rogue
    • Leave it

      • Looks dated
      • Simple interior

    2014 Nissan Rogue Select Review

    As part of a seemingly never-ending and perhaps survival-instinct-motivated quest for unique and distinct packaging and marketing strategies, Nissan has redefined “new and improved” by introducing the Nissan Rogue Select for 2014. Actually branded the Rogue S, this inexpensive alternative to the significantly reworked 2014 Rogue is in reality a 2013 Rogue with less fluff. Seating 5, this stripped-down last-gen small crossover offers a less pricy alternative to its next-gen Rogue siblings, but that’s about it. The question for Nissan is will that be enough to give the Rogue market a boost? And, further, will there be a 2015 Nissan Rogue S?

    In any case, the single Rogue S trim comes delivered with standard front-wheel drive (FWD), but Nissan’s intuitive all-wheel drive (AWD) is, of course, offered as an option. Said AWD system, by the way, allows this affordable family mini-ute to send power only to the front wheels at highway speeds, while standing by to divert torque from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip when the ride bogs down.

    Meanwhile, the features-challenged and rebranded Rogue S comes with such no-nonsense appearance and cabin adornments as 16-inch steel wheels (that actually look pretty cool), cloth upholstery, full power accessories, simulated alloy interior accents and tilt-wheel steering. Of course, air conditioning is standard and bolstered by cabin air filtration, while a single-CD player with 4 speakers and auxiliary iPod integration provides entertainment. Meanwhile, the Rogue S offers the same 57.9 inches of cargo area (with the rear seatbacks folded) as its S-less counterparts.

    Among Nissan’s self-described selling points in this Spartan crossover is a distinct dearth of popular options like navigation, a power sun/moon-roof, keyless entry and ignition, and rear-seat DVD entertainment. However, the Convenience Package, with a rear spoiler, roof rails, a rear-view camera, cruise control and upgraded audio boasting a 4.3-inch color display is available, as are such standalone options as splash guards, carpeted floor mats and Bluetooth hands-free technology.

    In a further deviation from its higher-end rivals like Ford’s Escape and Honda’s CR-V, the 2014 Rogue S, like its un-Select kinfolk, offers only the standard 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) powerplant mated with a not exactly silent continuously variable transmission (CVT). This combination puts out 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, with mileage estimated at 23 mpg city/28 highway for FWD-equipped editions and 22/27 estimated for AWD-toting versions.

    According to the majority of reviewers, this peppy little 4-banger has no issues with merging and passing on the highway, and its surprisingly adept suspension provides a pleasant ride along with some unexpected agility.

    Finally, standard safety features are essentially the same as its S-less counterparts, including the usual antilock braking (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, side-mounted airbags and front side-mounted airbags. Also in a nod to its more posh progenitors, the 2014 Rogue S boasts a standard remote antitheft alarm and, with the available Convenience Package, front fog/driving lights.

    Nissan Rogue

    Rather than Rogue, Nissan could have named this redesigned SUV "Mr. Congeniality." True, that's not very macho, but the model stands out as an easy-to-drive, family-friendly vehicle. And, this version ranks well among the better small SUVs. This revised Rogue was larger and more accommodating. It has a spacious cabin, easy access, and plenty of room in the rear seat.

    Reviews rogue 2014 nissan select

    The Rogue moniker might conjure images of reprobate political figures and the status of ladies’ undergarments in some quarters, but the badge has been no barrier to sales success. Here in the U.S., the compact crossover is Nissan’s second-bestselling model, slugging it out in showrooms with popular players such as the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4.

    For 2014, Nissan introduces the second generation of the vehicle with this name, redone in part to use the new Common Module Family architecture, which is shared with Renault. Nissan will continue to sell the old version of the Rogue (some 650,000 have been produced since 2008), so you’ll be able to compare the new and old versions side by side come this January. The old version, to be dubbed Rogue Select, will carry a sub-$20,000 base price. That model is assembled in Japan; the new Rogues will be manufactured in Smyrna, Tennessee.

    A quick body scan of the 2014 Rogue reveals an evolutionary shape with a cleaner front, thanks to swept-back headlights and a more prominent and upscale-looking grille. LED daytime running lights are a tip of the hat to current fashion. The detailing around the greenhouse windows is crisper, the wheel arches show more muscle, and the taillights again wrap around the side but now have more character.

    The 2014 Rogue provides a larger canvas for these styling details, as it’s 1.0 inch longer, 1.5 inches wider, and 1.0 inch taller. The wheelbase is stretched by 0.6 inch. Creeping mass is kept in check, however, with elements such as an aluminum hood and a composite rear hatch. Underbody aero work, including a spoiler-type element mounted beneath the muffler, is claimed to reduce drag and increase the distance between fill-ups.

    Shining from Within

    Although the exterior changes are minor, the interior takes a big step uptown. For the first time, the Rogue is available in a seven-passenger configuration, although the teensy third-row split-bench seats are rated PG-13. More important, the Rogue’s second-row seats slide fore-and-aft nine inches, and all seatbacks fold flat save the driver’s, enabling a wide range of cargo- and passenger-hauling combinations. Also new on five-seaters is the Divide-N-Hide cargo system that, once learned, does a reasonable job of keeping your stuff in the way back in place and/or hidden.

    The previous-gen Rogue’s cabin kit looked lifted from an economy car; however, the new design is anything but déclassé. There are large, easy-to-read gauges ahead and a center console that appears integrated from its horizontal vents up top to convenient climate-control switchgear below. Centered between them, depending on options, is a five- or seven-inch color display, the latter of the touch-screen variety.

    Nissan sticks with its QR25DE engine in the 2014 model, a 2.5-liter twin-cam four rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The automaker is also remaining faithful to the continuously variable transmission, in the interest of fuel economy—the Rogue comes in at 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway with front-wheel drive, 25/32 in all-wheel-drive versions. Those estimates are impressive compared with much of the competition but are only 1 mpg better on the highway than Mazda’s CX-5 with a more-enthusiast-friendly six-speed automatic.

    Pros

    • Attractive price tag
    • Usable size
    • Available all-wheel drive

    Cons

    • Only available with CVT
    • Dated looks
    • Limited options
    • Ford Escape
    • Toyota RAV4
    • Chevrolet Equinox
    • Honda CR-V

    With the arrival of the second-generation Rogue, which grows in size and base price, Nissan saw fit to continue offering the first-gen model as a lower-cost option. Called the Rogue Select, the entry-level model features the outgoing car's most basic amenities to keep the cost down.

    The Rogue Select S is the only trim level offered, though it comes in either front- or all-wheel drive. The crossover is still powered by a 2.5-liter I-4 making 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and is backed by a CVT with standard sport mode. The model is EPA-rated at 23/28 mpg city/highway in front-wheel drive trim and 22/27 mpg with all-wheel drive. The Rogue Select offers 57.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the second-row 60/40 split folding seats down, and features a six-way adjustable driver seat and four-way adjustable passenger seat, seatback storage pockets, and air conditioning as standard.

    Because this is a base model slotting beneath the base 2014 Rogue, the Rogue Select gets only one package, the S Convenience package, which includes a rear spoiler, roof rails, cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls, rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a 4.3-inch center display.

    The Rogue Select is essentially a carryover of the previous-generation Rogue, but is only offered in the lowest trim level so it doesn't step on the toes of the new 2014 Rogue.
