This week I was mostly driving
the 2016 Nissan Rogue.

2.4 (4-cylinder) AWD.

Plenty of space. Good sized boot.
Once you find the 'sport' button down
by the driver's knee it goes quite well.


An okay rental.

Didn't take it on any significant
trails. But you can't hide it's
"crossover-ness."

Star Wars Rogue One limited editions available in
white or black
Available as the X-Trail. (Apparently.)

what's it meant to be, bud? An SUV for splashing into the odd puddle, or a pukka 4x4?

It's a crossover and it would have probably handled the Monument Valley drive today.

But I found the V6 Ford Explorer XLT more appropriate. ;)
(More on that later.)

Well, after a week and 1300 miles in the Explorer
I'm back in a Rogue.


The Explorer is the one to go for.
Comfortable, capable and not too
thirsty.

The only fault on the Explorer is the
Terrain "Management" system they
clearly ripped from JLR:
This resets to normal/road
mode whenever you switch
off. Which is annoying when
you are doing touristy things
jumping in-and-out to take
photos on a bit of rough stuff.



The Rogue is too tinny.

Cross-pollination from when BMW bought Land Rover and later sold it off to Ford. However, Ford probably never understood the implementation in the same way that Land Rover did.
