Newcomers: 2008 Nissan Rogue
Modestly mischievous: Late to the party, but ready for fun

Through July, Japan's big three-Honda, Nissan, and Toyota-had sold more than 637,000 sport/utility vehicles. Of that number, over a third were car-based small crossovers, with Toyota unloading nearly 102,000 RAV4s and Honda moving more than 124,000 CR-Vs. Nissan? Um, well, it didn't fare as well-it sold zero. Sure it's difficult to sell a compact crossover when one doesn't exist in the portfolio, but when exactly does Nissan plan to compete in this budding segment?

Between those door handles and the sharp edge of the console I could see losing all the circulation in my legs. Its hell to get old.

Looks as though its built to a price on the outside to simple sot be sleek it looks sparse and awkward, nah not a look I like I prefer SUVs even cossovers to have more firm and bold styling.
