The Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover SUV produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Nissan. It made its debut in October 2007 for the 2008 model year. Since 2013, the model has been paralleled with the X-Trail sold outside North America, making them essentially identical. It is currently Nissan’s best-selling vehicle in the United States.
The Rogue is manufactured at the Nissan Smyrna Assembly Plant in Tennessee, United States, although some variants have been built at Nissan Shatai‘s Kyushu Plant in Fukuoka, Japan and at the Renault Samsung Motors plant in Busan, South Korea.

What the critics have to say…
The 2021 Rogue crossover gets an all-new platform and revised powertrain with enhanced driving dynamics and a range of available driver-assistance features.Driving.ca
The Rogue is currently Nissan’s best-selling vehicle by a long shot, and consumer demand for compact crossovers shows no sign of slowing down. Needless to say, the “don’t screw it up” factor is pretty high with the redesigned 2021 Rogue, which rolls into dealerships later this year.CNet
HOW DOES IT DRIVE?
Powering the 2021 Nissan Rogue is a 2.5-liter I-4 with 181 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of 11 hp and 6 lb-ft respectively over the outgoing model, and a CVT automatic remains the only transmission offered. In our First Test of an AWD Rogue Platinum, it reached 60 mph in 8.1 seconds. Fuel economy numbers from the EPA are exactly the same as last year’s car: 26-27/34-35 mpg city/highway for FWD models and 25-26/32-33 mpg with AWD.Motortrend
We’ve criticized the last generation Rogue for its lackadaisical acceleration and clumsy handling; the 2021 model has improved in both categories. At our test track, we recorded a quicker, but still uninspired, 8.2-second run to 60 mph and noted more confident handling and a quieter interior when cruising.Car and Driver
IS IT RELIABLE AND HIGH QUALITY?
Is the Nissan Rogue Reliable?
The 2021 Rogue has a predicted reliability score of 82 out of 100. A J.D. Power predicted reliability score of 91-100 is considered the Best, 81-90 is Great, 70-80 is Average, and 0-69 is Fair and considered below average.
Nissan Rogue Warranty
Nissan covers the Rogue with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
HOW COMFORTABLE IS IT?
The Rogue is eminently comfortable. The front seats are wonderfully shaped, with padding that’s both soft and supportive. The rear seats are similarly pleasant, with generous lumbar support and two recline positions.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE INTERIOR LIKE?
The Rogue’s new interior borrows styling cues from both the Altima family sedan and the recently redesigned Sentra compact sedan. Thoughtful storage cubbies, a bi-level dashboard, and a squared-off shift knob are rich-looking design elements that improve usability and give the interior a modern flair. Cloth seating is standard but the mid-range SV model can be had with optional faux-leather upholstery; the upscale SL and Platinum Rogues get genuine leather, the latter being a semi-aniline hide with quilted stitching. Three-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel will all be available features.Car and Driver
Generally speaking, the Rogue’s interior is perfectly nice. Nissan’s comfy and supportive Zero Gravity seats are standard for both front and rear passengers, came wrapped in leather on my SL tester and is available with quilted, semi-aniline hides on the bougie Platinum. All of the plastics and wood appliqués are nicely grained and none of the vehicle controls feel cheap or flimsy. Well, mostly.CNet
WHAT IS THE TECHNOLOGY LIKE?
The Rogue’s infotainment system is pretty straightforward thanks to easy-to-navigate menus and a host of physical controls and buttons for other functions. If there’s a gripe, it’s that the interface can sometimes be slow to process inputs. Screen graphics and icons look good, especially on the larger high-definition screen.USNews
The Rogue is one of the more tech-centric vehicles in its class. All models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and all but the base trim have four USB ports for keeping devices charged. Our Platinum tester also had a charging pad and wireless Apple CarPlay — both are rare features for this class.Edmunds
WHAT IS THE CARGO SPACE LIKE?
Passenger space inside is about the same as the outgoing model, but cargo capacity behind the rear seat has decreased slightly from 39 cubic-feet to 37 cubic-feet.Car and Driver
Even small SUVs have to offer plenty of room, and the Rogue obliges. SL and Platinum models come with a two-tier cargo management system that Nissan calls Divide-N-Hide. The dual-panel floor can rest in the upper position to create a perfectly flat load space when the rear seats are dropped. You can also lower the cargo panels for extra storage or set one up as a cargo divider.Edmunds
IS THIS VEHICLE A GOOD VALUE?
The Nissan Rogue costs slightly more than top-ranked competitors, but the cost is somewhat offset by its stronger set of standard features. The price of our top-trim Platinum all-wheel-drive tester was considerable; at $38,660, this particular model is one of the most expensive compact SUVs on the market. Again, that price brings extras — such as quilted leather and wireless Apple CarPlay — that are hard to find on competing crossovers. The overall quality of materials is seriously impressive, though we observed a few fit-and-finish issues on our tester.Edmunds
IS THE Nissan Rogue A GOOD SUV?
Yes, the Nissan Rogue is a good compact SUV. It comes with a long list of features, bests nearly all classmates in cargo space, and offers two rows of welcoming seats. When it comes to performance, the Rogue’s powertrain proves a little uninspired, but this crossover delivers great fuel economy estimates and solid handling.USNews
THE FINAL WORD
The fully redesigned 2021 Nissan Rogue is a well-rounded compact SUV. It delivers solid quality, utility, value, and fuel economy. However, many rivals offer these same attributes along with other advantages, so you’ll definitely want to shop around.
