Current Model
Nissan has redesigned the Rogue for 2021, with a focus on bringing more sophistication to this popular small SUV. The core formula remains unchanged, with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and rich complement of safety features.
It is about the same size as before, but interior space is said to have improved. A new Platinum trim layers in upscale touches, such as quilted leather seats, head-up display, heated rear seats, and upgraded infotainment system. The sole engine is a 181-hp four-cylinder, marking an 11 hp gain. It is teamed with a CVT. The Rogue boasts a generous roster of standard advanced safety and driver assist systems that is hard to match in the segment, featuring AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, LDW, RCTA, and more.

2020
The easy-to-drive Rogue is one of the better small SUVs. It is relatively roomy and quiet.
Handling is sound, with prompt steering response and restrained body lean in corners. Power comes from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder mated to a continuously variable transmission. The CVT is not overly intrusive unless the driver tromps on the gas pedal, which results in elevated engine noise. Our AWD Rogue delivered 24 mpg overall. The interior is spacious for the class and is nicely finished. The rear seat is very roomy. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic warning, and lane departure warning are standard for all trims. A rear-seat reminder is also standard.

2014-2019
2014 Redesign Year
The 2014 redesign made the Rogue bigger, better, quieter and more refined overall. It also produced a better ride than most other small SUVs.
A tiny third-row seat was optional, while a backup camera was standard. A clever surround-view system was also available. The SV trim level with the Premium package will get you blind-spot and lane-departure warnings, a power liftgate, a surround-view camera system, and navigation. To get forward-collision warning, which has been shown to be effective in preventing crashes, get the SL with the Premium package. One note: Don't confuse this Rogue with the previous model, which is outdated and was sold as the Rogue Select.

2008-2013
2008 Redesign Year
Derived from the Sentra sedan, the first-generation Nissan Rogue ran from 2008 through 2013. Though it has a handy and compact size, cargo capacity is pretty puny and the sleek styling impedes the view aft.
A rear-view camera is available; we suggest you find a Rogue fitted with the feature. The 170-hp, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine sounded a bit raspy at high revs, but averaged a respectable 22 mpg. The CVT worked well. Rogue's ride quality is supple and its handling fairly nimble. Convenience features include keyless entry and a removable, foldable cargo organizer for the rear storage area. Most controls and buttons are large and simple to operate. However, the climate controls are mounted low and there is no radio-tuning knob.
