Nissan unveils Rogue CUV

Recommended Posts

Nissan goes after the Honda CR-V with a new compact crossover

Posted Image

Is a car company trying too hard to attract younger buyers when it names its new compact crossover after an X-Men character? Well yes it would be, but that's not the case with the 2008 Nissan Rogue, which makes its debut at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show. According to Nissan, the name Rogue was chosen to reflect "its independence-oriented positioning." Not sure what that means, but at least they didn't call it the Wolverine.

Looks like a CR-V has but sex with a retarded Murano about 9 months ago.

That's evolution for ya! :P

You guys are jerking off over this interior?!? It's a poor rip off of an Equinox!

You're not serious are you?

I see exactly zero Equinox in the Rogue interior.

BTW, I know I pictured the old Equinox interior. It's impossible to rip off an interior that was released around the same time (new Equinox interior). Plus, the Rogue doesn't look like that one, either.

I'm not sure how many of you are sick to death of hearing from me about 1950s Hardtops...

but it must feel a LOT like I feel about modern interiors. 99% of the time I just do not care. :duck:

Nice-lookin cute-ute. A couple of things, though:

In profile, it looks a lot like the new Santa Fe. That's not necessarily a bad thing, just suprising.

Nissan's wheel arches are getting bigger with each iteration. Before long the quarter panels will be one big wheel arch. I don't like that, because visually it makes the wheels/tires look smaller than they are, negating the mostly cosmetic effect of larger-rimmed tires.

It should be quite competitive, though, and I do like the interior.
