4. Nissan Rogue

Updated for the 2014 model year, the all-new Nissan Rogue boasts plenty of best-in-class accolades. Its starting price tag of $23,650 narrowly bests the Mitsubishi Outlander, while its 26-mpg city and 33-mpg highway rating is also best-in-class. Powering the Nissan Rogue is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and the vehicle also sports a best-in-class 39.3 cubic feet max cargo storage and 41-inch front headroom.

    If the list is alphabetical, they shouldn’t be numbered. Seems like a countdown to the safest vehicle, when in reality, the worst performer is the Toyota Highlander listed at #2. If you checked NHTSA as well as IIHS, the Highlander, Equinox, Rogue, Terrain, Forester and Outlander all fall behind many other SUVs. There are only four that ace both NHTSA and IIHS. The MDX, M-Class, CX-5 and XC60.
