2016 Nissan Rogue remains family-friendly

If you prioritize space and comfort in your compact crossover, then the 2016 Nissan Rogue has plenty of both. Its trunk is among the biggest, and the option to add a third row of seating makes it a useful choice for larger families. Add an interior that's finished to a level above most of its rivals, and the Rogue certainly has appeal.

The S trim covers the basics, with remote keyless entry, air conditioning, cruise control, a rearview camera, a 5-inch display, and Bluetooth® connectivity among the standard equipment. You'll need to get the SV if you want standard alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and improved audio with the NissanConnect® smartphone app integration. The SL tops the range, adding leather upholstery, a larger touchscreen, navigation, and Bose® audio among other desirable equipment. All come powered with a 170-hp four-cylinder engine with a continuously automatic transmission. Its performance is rather lackluster, much like the rest of the driving experience, but it's spacious and well appointed and worthy of consideration.
