2020 Nissan Rogue Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Nissan Rogue?

The five-seat Nissan Rogue is a compact SUV with a standard 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4. Nissan also sells the smaller Rogue Sport SUV, which is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

What’s New on the 2020 Nissan Rogue?

There are no significant changes.

What Features in the 2020 Nissan Rogue Are Most Important?

Nissan packs a lot of standard safety and convenience features in the Rogue, its most popular model. With automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and other driver aids standard, you don’t have to buy a more expensive trim level to get desirable safety features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is also standard.

2020 Nissan Rogue vs. 2020 Toyota RAV4: How Do They Compare?

The Rogue is one of the older designs in its category, but it is not without virtues. It offers a host of standard safety features and a roomy interior. Its handling, powertrain and interior quality, however, take a backseat to competitors. The RAV4 was redesigned last year, and it has a higher-quality interior and a strong, smooth powertrain. The redesign included a suite of safety features rivaling those in the Rogue.

Should I Buy the 2020 Nissan Rogue?

The Rogue is one of the industry’s top-selling models, so it obviously hits the right notes with many buyers. Our editors, though, rate the Rogue as noisier, slower and less enjoyable to drive than other compact SUVs. There’s some good stuff here, but check out the competition before deciding.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
