2014 Nissan Rogue Overview

Is the 2014 Nissan Rogue a Good Used SUV?

The Rogue is a good SUV. It has an upscale interior, plenty of active safety features, and seating for up to seven, making it a solid choice for families. In fact, it was a finalist for our 2014 Best Compact SUV for Families award.

All 2014 Rogue models have the same engine and transmission: a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is a type of automatic. The engine provides adequate acceleration overall, but it's a bit noisy and feels a little underpowered on the highway. However, the Rogue does get excellent fuel economy, earning 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

The 2014 Rogue is available with front- or all-wheel drive. The Rogue's handling is middle-of-the-pack for a compact SUV, and its ride quality is comfortable over most road surfaces.

The Rogue seats five on cloth upholstery. Models with a number of seating upgrades – including leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a third row of seats (a rare offering for a compact SUV) – are available. The front seats are supportive and comfortable, but the available third row doesn't have enough room for adults – and barely enough for kids. The 2014 Rogue has two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. While there's ample room to fit the child seats, it can be difficult to attach the straps to the anchor points.

The well-styled interior uses plenty of soft-touch materials, giving it a nicer look and feel than many other compact SUVs provide. All 2014 Rogue models feature Bluetooth, a USB port, hands-free texting, and a rearview camera. Some models include satellite radio, a panoramic moonroof, and the user-friendly NissanConnect infotainment system with navigation and a 7-inch touch screen. The Rogue has a maximum cargo capacity of 70 cubic feet, which is more space than many other compact SUVs offer.

How Reliable Is the 2014 Nissan Rogue?

The 2014 Rogue has a reliability score of 2.5 out of five, according to J.D. Power and Associates. That's a slightly below-average score, both overall and for the compact SUV class.

How Safe Is the Rogue?

The Rogue has a good safety score, but not one that puts it among class leaders. It performed well in crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, leading it to earn a Top Safety Pick+ designation. However, it didn't fare as well in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's tests, earning one five-star rating, two four-star ratings, and one three-star rating in the four categories evaluated.

Higher Rogue trims offer several driver assistance features, many of which are not available in other compact SUVs. These include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring.

Should I Consider Another Used Rogue?

The Rogue was redesigned for 2014, meaning that the 2014 model marked the first year of the SUV’s second generation. This generation also includes the 2017 model. If you're looking at different model years, you'd do well to compare the 2014 Rogue against the 2015 and 2016 models. All three are part of the same generation, meaning they're very similar in terms of interior quality, passenger space, and cargo capacity. The 2015 and 2016 models do offer some features that the 2014 Rogue doesn't, but you may find that these features aren't worth the newer models’ higher prices.

Nissan sold the previous Rogue generation alongside the redesigned model for 2014 and 2015 under the name Rogue Select. Our 2014 Nissan Rogue review does not cover the Rogue Select.

Which Used Rogue Model Is Right for Me?

The Rogue comes in three trims: S, SV, and SL. The S trim doesn't offer much beyond the standard features mentioned above. The SV includes some extra tech and active safety options. The SL is the most upscale trim and has the most features, but it doesn't offer a third row of seats. Of the three, the SV is the best blend of price and feature availability.

Nissan also has a certified pre-owned program. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2014 Nissan Rogue and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Rogue or 2014 Toyota RAV4?

The Toyota RAV4 has a slightly more engaging powertrain and better handling than the Rogue, but its fuel economy is a bit lower. The RAV4's cabin also isn't as upscale as the Rogue's. The RAV4 has supportive seats and plenty of rear-seat legroom, but like most compact SUVs, its seating capacity tops out at five people. The RAV4 doesn’t offer as many features, but it is one of the few rivals to provide more cargo space than the Rogue. The RAV4 will also cost you about $1,300 more than the Rogue. Between the two, the Rogue has more to offer at a lower price.

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Rogue or 2014 Nissan Murano?

The Nissan Murano is a midsize SUV, so it's bigger than the Rogue. Despite being larger, the Murano lacks an available third row and has less cargo space than the Rogue. Both rows of seats are comfortable and spacious, and – like the Rogue – the Murano has a stylish interior fitted with high-end materials. The Murano doesn't offer as many features as the Rogue, but it does have a 260-horsepower V6 engine that delivers good power. The Murano handles well and has a smooth ride. Though its fuel economy is worse than the Rogue's, the Murano's mpg ratings are still average for a midsize SUV. Used Murano models cost about $1,000 more than used Rogues on average. Both SUVs offer an upscale and attractive cabin. Ultimately, the Rogue is a better bet if your primary focus is practicality, while the Murano is the way to go if you value engaging driving dynamics.
