Test Drive Episode 2, Nissan Rogue SL,
In this episode of Test Drive, Crystal stays in the Nissan family and gives you a look at the Nissan Rogue SL, take a look and let us know what you think. This is what Edmunds thinks:

The 2009 Nissan Rogue is pleasant. You look at it — pleasant. You drive it — pleasant. Here's a little crossover SUV that isn't really outstanding in any area, yet seldom disappoints. Instead, the Rogue does most things well enough that it adds up to a very pleasant total. While it lacks the utility and passenger space of some competitors, this handsomely dressed Nissan compensates with its athletic character, relatively frugal fuel consumption and avant-garde style.

In particular, the Rogue fits the bill for young professionals who like the idea of sitting up high, but still want something stylish and fuel-efficient. Ditto parents of one or two small children who aren't ready to drive a stereotypical "mom mobile," yet are attracted to the added space and sense of security an SUV provides.

Other points in the Rogue's favor include its attractively simple interior controls, which are easy to use even though they're connected to some of the latest gadgets and gizmos. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) rewards those who go easy on the throttle with seamless acceleration and good fuel economy, though heavy throttle applications cause the engine to drone like an unhappy cow. The electric-assist steering couldn't be easier to turn in parking lots, yet unlike other electric steering setups, the Rogue's is respectably communicative at higher speeds, lending more driver confidence to control the vehicle.

In sum, the 2009 Nissan Rogue is a bit sportier than the typical compact crossover SUV without exacting any penalties in ride comfort or fuel economy, and its sophisticated style separates it from the conservative cute-ute pack of such perennial all-stars as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. In other words, it's perfectly pleasant.
