Rogue from B2

My Rogue SV AWD tester was painted a tpunchy Ultramarine Blue. It featured $2,085 in options, including $135 for the paint and $1,950 for the Premium Package that offered 18-inch alloy wheels (replacing the 17-inchers), fog lights, tow package pre-wiring, power glass moonroof, fold down front passenger seat, upgraded six-speakrer audio system (replacing a four-speaker system), illuminated dual vanity mirrors, steering wheel audio controls, dual level centre console storage, full-size spare with alloy wheel, radio data system and speed sensitive volume. Already standard on the SV model are features like heated upgraded front cloth seats, tilt steering column, keyless remote entry, rearview camera, trip computer and outside temperature gauge, 4.3inch colour audio display and rear tonneau cover. The cabin of the Rogue has a cockpitlike feel with a supportive driver’s seat that adjusts six ways manually. It will also lift two inches if you want to sit up just a bit higher. The heated, cloth driver’s seat (leather is standard on the SL model and optional on the SV) is both comfortable and supportive. The instrument panel is well laid out and easy to read. Like many vehicles I see today, there is a bit up.

MOTORING

too much hard plastic for my liking, but overall, the Rogue has an attractive, well-finished interior. On the road, the Rogue is equally at home in city or highway traffic. The CVT transmission works efficiently to get the best possible fuel economy and power out of the 2.5-litre engine, but the constant whine you get under acceleration with almost all CVTs is annoying. This CVT, though, is one of the better ones on the market and it employs adaptive logic control and adjusts the shift pattern according to the driving situation and driver’s demands. Overall, the engine responds quickly to throttle pressure and the

vehicle exhibits smooth and powerful acceleration. Once up to speed, the noise subsides and there’s little wind or road noise intruding into the cabin. It becomes a very pleasant environment. Natural Resources Canada puts the fuel economy numbers of the AWD Rogue at 9.3L/100 km (30 mpg) city and 7.7L/100km (37 mpg) highway. The Rogue sits on Nissan’s ‘C’ platform, the same as the Sentra sedan, but it’s surprising because the Rogue has the appearance of being a much bigger vehicle. Extensive use of high-strength steel increases body rigidity, while at the same time re-

inches), the Rogue is among the longest vehicles in its class and its 2,690 mm (105 in) wheelbase helps smooth out the ride. Suspension is independent all round and the steering has an electric power assist. For a CUV, the Rogue maneuvers well in tight city conditions and the ride on the highway is smooth and comfortable. All in all, the Rogue proves to be a solid, capable performer. And although it has undergone only a midcycle refresh for 2011, it offers a better overall package for buyers looking for the utility, comfort and versatility of a compact CUV.
