There was a bunch of hoopla at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show surrounding the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue's improved cargo storage. It now has a shelf system and under-floor storage, and the sliding second-row seats make more room in the cargo area if needed. Despite those fantastic cargo features in my test of the Rogue, I was most impressed with the improved storage in the front row (photo above).
Nissan had room for improvement with the 2014 Rogue's front storage areas because the previous generation had only one nook next to the cupholders. That single cubby (photo after jump) wasn't enough for all the little items — smartphone, lip balm, loose change — that need to be within the driver's reach.
