The cabin raised both my eye brows up

Pros - Premium sound quality, Attractive dual tone interiors, Spacious trunk storage.

Cons - Tiny screen, Windows vibrate as I accelerate.

Just the kind of speakers i needed I don’t understand why the manufacturers don’t add in a larger screen and especially for this era, any digital advancement would be welcomed. My Nissan Rogue has a beautiful looking dual tone interior that make it look way too premium and the Bose audio system goes really well with the whole vibe. The sound quality is just too good and its bass heavy which I really prefer. Build isn’t the absolute best on the Rogue as I do get to hear the windows vibrating when I accelerate and its very minute but once you hear it, there’s no undoing it. Was my first visit to this place and I’m afraid that it was the last one. This dude came up and welcomed me with a very foul ...

Overall Rating


The 2016 Nissan Rogue is priced at $23,330 for the base trim and comes in three trim levels. This car is no looker, and is designed more towards the purpose of utility and functionality. With that in mind, the Rogue goes up against the 2016 Dodge Journey, the 2016 Kia Sportage, and the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan.

We Recommend

The mid-range SV trim is a wise choice here as it offers all the features of the base S trim along with alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable driver seat, and a six-speaker sound system under $25,000 which makes the SV trim a very balanced out option over other trims.

2016 Nissan Rogue Engine and Performance

7.2/10

The 2016 Nissan Rogue packs a 2.5L Inline-4 engine under the hood that generates 170 horsepower along with 175 lb-ft through a CVT transmission. The CVT does help in terms of fuel efficiency but it is on the slower side in terms of responses, instantly making the Rogue somewhat sluggish in urban roads. The optional AWD is recommended.

In terms of handling, it’s very clear from the start that the Rogue’s driving characteristics focus more on the ride quality than on the performance. It’s enough in the city, but around turns and at higher speeds fails to involve the driver as expected. The suspension is tuned to favor the comfort but the 18-inch wheels do make it a little firmer.

2016 Nissan Rogue Interior

8.2/10

In terms of interior, the Rogue blows you away; it’s one of the most elegant interiors in this class, and is very well done. The quality of materials used, the fit, and the finish are all excellent. Soft-touch materials are all-around the cabin, with a very neat-looking dashboard. The controls and knobs feel sturdy and are easy to use.

In the seating factor, the Rogue can add an optional third row of seats best suited for kids. The front row is very comfortable and does provide good headroom. Legroom might be slightly uncomfortable for taller passengers, however. The rear seats come with a 40/20/40 split and feature great adjustability. These seats provide good legroom as well.

2016 Nissan Rogue Exterior

8.0/10

The Nissan Rogue is not very great on looks, but the car’s design does grow on you. The overall exterior design language is quite handsome especially the front fascia which is angular and futuristic in terms of looks, the rear fascia sits high up and does eat up some visibility. The overall look is more on the crossover side of things rather than the SUV side of things.

2016 Nissan Rogue Final Verdict

The Rogue is an ideal vehicle for families as it is capable of day-to-day chores quite impressively. It is highly fuel-efficient and the cost of ownership is also affordable as compared to some of its competitors. The versatility that the Rogue provides is what makes it desirable and the price tag does nothing but adds to its desirability. However, it isn’t a perfect vehicle as the third-row option eats up cargo space and is only good for small kids and under hard acceleration engine make annoying noises which can get bothering in day to day usage which these types of vehicles are meant to do. Overall, for the price you get a lot and won’t be disappointed as any of its shortcomings are not dealbreakers.
