One they didn't mention is the 7-seat version of the Rogue (called the Qashqai everywhere else). The Qashqai+2 has been a best seller since late 2008, would compete with and undercut the Mazda X-9 and Acura and Audi models. I would buy one in a heartbeat to replace my 10 y/o Mazda MPV, especially if they sold it with the Tech Diesel it comes with in Europe. My wife's cousin has one in Italy and it is a truly great SUV. Nissan thinks it would compete with the Pathfinder, but they sell to totally different consumers.

We're not missing anything with the Micra. Although they are MANY times over the most common Nissan all over Europe, they're just mid-pack at best among the small cars offered there.

@heyfred3000 There's no need for it. The next X-Trail is coming here as the 2014 Rogue with an available third row of seats. I picked cars that the current (and soon-to-be current) U.S. lineup didn't overlap with too much.

I could write a whole review on it, but it's a little out of our ballpark. Still, so much want. I'll tell you more about it when I see you next. -Jacob
