New Nissan Rogue is one of the top ten safest crossovers
NISSAN Rogue tops the list of 2014 Most affordable compact SUVs, beating out Honda, Subaru, Ford and Toyota!
If you're shopping for a compact SUV, the bevy of competitive options to choose from may overwhelm you. Since the last comparison test in 2012 new models from Jeep, Nissan and Toyota have gone on sale, and they're selling quite well.
One other thing that has changed recently: Most models in this segment come with relatively well-equipped base levels, or with just a few options selected. That makes finding the most affordable versions easier, but it's not a simple task.
Cars.com compiled the right trim levels that deliver expected features in this class and included the cost of gas over five years to determine the most affordable compact SUV among the ranks.
The redesigned Nissan Rogue topped the list by a scant $295 over the smaller and less well-reviewed Mitsubishi Outlander Sport when taking into the factors used to compile the list.
The new 2014 Nissan Rogue is available at all seven Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego.

Nissan Rogue Takes to the Track - the Ice Track!
MONTREAL, Canada - Winter has been unrelenting throughout the U.S. and Canada this year. There certainly was no exception to be found in Montreal, a southwest city in the Canadian province of Quebec.
The very low temperatures and snowy conditions made it perfect timing for Nissan to invite Canadian journalists to Quebec's Laurentian mountains. Once there, the company's guests got to take the all-new Rogue for a spin on the ice-covered Mecaglisse circuit, which is part of a purpose-built, 700-acre all-season motorsports facility located in Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci.
"There is no better place, even in Canada," said Christian Meunier, president, Nissan Canada. "We were looking for a special location to show the journalists what it is like to drive the Rogue in the true Canadian winter."
The Mecaglisse circuit represents the most extreme situation that a driver could encounter from a traction point of view. It is a great place to highlight the advantages of Rogue's advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system.
"It is not only just about AWD, the wheels powering down. It is also about the steering, the braking and how all of Rogue's systems come together to deliver a confident ride and driving experience," said Tim Franklin, Product Planning, Nissan Canada.
The Rogue impressed even the most experienced winter drivers, including the co-owner of the track and facility, Franck Kirchhoff. "I drove this car yesterday, and even if you drive without studs, only on regular winter tires, you really feel the car, and the handling is really good. I drive many cars during the winter, and I feel the Rogue is one of the best SUVs that you can get."
If the winter of 2013 and 2014 persists in dumping snow, at least there is a new hero to help navigate the roads - the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue.
