Out, Damned (Blind) Spot

The Rogue's sight lines are its biggest problem. With bulky D-pillars, fixed rear head restraints and an undersized rear window, it ranked as the worst of 10 small crossovers — eight of which are still on the market — for blind-spot visibility in a comparison test two years ago. Large side mirrors might make up for some of that, but the Rogue's are merely adequate — and the view out the front could use some work, too. The Rogue has more glass than the swept-back Sportage and Tucson, but its windshield and side windows are still on the short side. Nissan could learn a thing or two from the Subaru Forester or RAV4. Climb into either of those, and you'll notice a world of difference.
