2008 Nissan Rogue Trims

S

Avg. Price: $12,406

You can think of the 2008 Nissan Rogue S as a sign of the times. Sitting on a platform borrowed from the Nissan Sentra and sporting a look borrowed from the Nissan Murano, the Rogue S stakes out a middle ground between larger SUVs and more common sedans. Officially labeled a crossover vehicle, the Rogue S offers a higher profile, plenty of cargo space, and the improved gas mileage many drivers demand today.

It also joins an automotive segment that has become larger and more competitive in the past couple of years. The Nissan Rogue S distinguishes itself from competitors such as the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V with its sporty design, numerous storage spaces, and quick-shifting Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission).

Inside, features include sporty gauges, illuminated steering-wheel controls, two-tone supportive front seats, and fold-down rear seats, all designed to appeal to younger, urban drivers. The Rogue S also comes equipped with a wide range of safety and stability features, including side-impact airbags, traction control, antilock brakes, steel side-door guard beams, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

On the downside, the Rogue S, as the entry-level trim, has a limited list of upgrades. Such features as a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, an intelligent keyless entry and ignition system, heated front seats, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and an upgraded Bose audio system aren't available on the Rogue S trim. For those, you'll have to step up to the SL trim.

Drivers and reviewers note that the Rogue S definitely provides a sporty driving experience, with good handling and performance, thanks to its lightweight 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter, double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine. While the Rogue S won't break any speed records, taking just over 8 seconds to jump from 0 to 60, it does eke out a respectable 27 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.
