The compact 2010 Nissan Rogue crossover SUV is based on a car chassis and so, offers a car-like ride but with a commanding view of the road.
Trims are S and SL. Standard equipment includes fully independent suspension, 4 wheel antilock disc brakes, 4 speaker AM/FM/CD audio system, traction control, and front and side curtain airbags.
A fuel-efficient engine and continuously variable transmission team up for a setup that's ideal for city driving. The standard 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine in the Rouge produces 170 horsepower. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the front wheels or available all wheel drive.
Here are the highest and lowest EPA fuel economy estimates:
Base MSRP for the 2010 Nissan Rogue is $20,340. An SL model equipped with all wheel drive starts at $23,130. The Rogue is backed by a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
With good fuel economy, plenty of standard features and a reasonable base price, the Nissan Rouge has set the bar high for capable crossover SUV's.
