The Nissan Rogue compact SUV gained a lot of redesigning for the 2021 model year and provides more attractive styling, modernized interior tech, advanced performance, and more adaptive ride-and-handling. Historically, the Nissan Rogue has sold well more than rival vehicles such as the Honda CR-V, and Mazda CX-5, but wasn’t as good as we expected overall, going far down in our rankings. With this redesign, the 2021 Nissan Rogue turns up the charm and also tries to shake off its history of mediocrity.
Like the previous generation of the Nissan Rogue, the 2021 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine but it’s obtained a slight power bump to 181-hp. A constant variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive will be offered while an all-wheel drive is optional. We all criticized the last generation of the Nissan Rogue for its slow acceleration and clumsy handling but the new 2021 Nissan Rogue has been upgraded in both categories. At the test track, the 2021 Rogue recorded a faster, but still uninspired, 8.2-second run to 60 mph and also a much more confident handling and a quieter interior when driving.
The 2021 Nissan Rogue’s interior borrows styling cues from both the Altima family sedan and the Sentra compact sedan. The vehicle also has storage cubbies, a bi-level dashboard, and also a squared-off shift knob which improves usability and gives the interior a modern flair. Cloth seating is also provided but the mid-range SV model can be had with optional faux-leather upholstery.
The 2021 Nissan Rogue has a touchscreen infotainment system on the dashboard. While an 8.0-inch unit is also provided on the 2021 Rogue, a larger 9.0-inch screen is offered on SL and Platinum models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also both provided, and high-end features are also available, such as in-dash navigation or a Bose stereo system, which are optional features.
