The Rogue is Nissan’s current best-selling vehicle, and for good reason. It’s practical, relatively affordable, and it can come with ProPilot Assist, Nissan’s most advanced suite of safety features. It’s also a 2019 Top Safety Pick for crash safety, per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Despite all that, the 2019 Rogue came in last in our most recent comparison of compact SUVs. Our judges took issue with the powertrain — the only choice is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 170 horsepower and 175 pounds-feet of torque, paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission — as well as the Rogue’s handling prowess, interior quality, and storage and noise levels.
Buyers can choose from S, SV or SL trim levels. Nissan’s advanced Safety Shield 360 system is standard on SV and SL models. The more advanced ProPilot Assist is available on SV models and standard on the SL. Alas, buyers of the Rogue S are SOL beyond the basics.
If you’re considering a practical small SUV, the Rogue may be for you. We’ve done a lot of testing of it, from child-safety seat accommodation to fuel-economy testing, and we’ve collected all that below with everything you need to know about the 2019-20 Nissan Rogue.
