2011 Rogue Overview

A Good Option Among Many Gets a Little Better 2011 Nissan Rogue - Click above for high-res image gallery We don't envy the hordes of product planners working in the auto world. America's concept of quality transportation seems to shift with the seasons, leaving analysts scrambling to anticipate amorphous market demands while automakers fill barely justifiable voids in their product line. If you need proof, look no further than the scorching hot CUV segment. Buyers have developed a seemingly unquenchable thirst for small, car-based high riders, and nearly every automaker sports at least one tall hatch in their lineup. Nissan hopped on the small crossover train belately in 2007 when it introduced the Rogue as a 2008 model. The pint-sized 'ute borrowed plenty of styling cues from the likes of the larger Murano and came equipped with an efficient and capable drivetrain built to suit a variety of tastes. But that was three years ago. In order to keep the Rogue as fresh as possible until a full-on next-generation model arrives, the company has rolled out a mildly updated version for 2011.

While the overall design is slightly rounded, tricks like an upkicked C-Pillar and slightly wrapped headlights give the Rogue a familial flair. Instead of going hog wild on a completely redesigned fascia for 2011, Nissan's designers simply opted for slight tweaks to the existing mold. Along with a massaged grille, the fascia now wears a subtle crease just below the headlights that's supposed to convey a touch of attitude. Down low, larger fog light openings now wear similar detail work as well. Nissan is planning to market the Rogue as a more mature alternative to the rash of youth-oriented CUVs currently infiltrating the market, and the company has underscored that commitment by decorating the sides of the vehicle with new chrome strips. We aren't typically huge fans of sticking shiny stuff to the exterior of a vehicle, and this instance doesn't do much to change opinions. The new trim simply doesn't do anything for us, especially given that the rest of the Rogue is largely bling-free with the exception of some similarly tacked-on looking door handles.
