It is also cozy and quiet, nevertheless the Rogue is way from spectacular on the freeway. It will not be as composed as rivals similar to the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V, with a soft-sprung expertise that borders on sloppy when cornering.
Not that dynamics had been ever going to be its strong swimsuit: The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generates 170 horsepower, sending it by way of a consistently variable transmission that makes vitality provide artificial and unpredictable. Luckily, I didn’t uncover any of the droning that normally comes with a CVT.
Overall, it has enough vitality to merge onto a freeway, and the powerplant is often quiet throughout the background of your ideas. But the driving experience is actually forgettable, no greater than the rest of the part.
The similar might be said of the within, which has quite a lot of know-how nevertheless doesn’t stand out in design or supplies choices.

Last, I’ve to say the seems. The Caspian Blue Metallic appeared implausible, nevertheless the rest of the design is forgettable. There had been a variety of occasions the place I acquired right here out of a retailer and it took me longer than conventional to remember which vehicle was mine. It merely doesn’t stand out.
