Redesigned Nissan Rogue's Front-Row Storage Goes From Zero to Hero

14Rogue

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.

2014 Nissan Rogue's Cargo System Made for Family Life

2014Rogue_cargo1

It's been a long time coming, but Nissan finally redesigned its Rogue compact crossover for 2014. The crossover got one heck of a makeover, but there's one area that sets it apart from the rest of this competitive class: the cargo area's numerous storage configurations.

Compact crossovers are a no-brainer for many families since they provide utility and get better fuel economy than their larger siblings, but the cargo areas are often a little, well, compact. The 2014 Rogue has 39.3 cubic feet of storage behind the second row; that's an improvement of 10.4 cubic feet over the 2013 model. It's also larger than 2014 Toyota RAV4 (38.4), 2014 Honda CR-V (37.2) and 2014 Ford Escape (34.3).

For 2014, the two-row Rogue — a 50/50-split third row is optional — has a Divide-N-Hide cargo system that makes it simple to compartmentalize the space with easy-to-use, multilevel grooves built into the cargo-area walls. It comes with flat panels that can easily slide in to the grooves like oven racks and make the most of those available cubic feet. Even better, handles make the panels convenient to grab and pull out with one hand. The storage configuration possibilities seem only limited by the imagination. I arranged five configurations at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show; Nissan claims upward of 25 arrangements.

2014 Nissan Rogue Video

No offense, ladies, but the Nissan Rogue that's so popular among your demographic is butching up for 2014 in hopes of gaining greater acceptance in the boys club. Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman reunited with the compact SUV, which he previously reviewed, at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, pointing out the masculine-looking features like LED headlights and taillights, daytime-running lights and an aggressive-looking grille.

The oomph of the redesigned Rogue's 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder isn't quite as manly as Bragman would like, but vastly improved interior quality and comfort more than make up for it.

2014 Nissan Rogue Cars.com Review

2014-Nissan-Rogue500

The complete overhaul of Nissan's compact crossover seems to have been a success, according to reviewer Aaron Bragman. A new style inside and out and optional third row are impressive, but the engine — carried over from the old Rogue — doesn't offer a lot of thrills.
