2020 Nissan Rogue review: Our expert's take

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.

No regrets

I traded in my Frontier for this and needless to say, I'm not disappointed. This had less than 6k on miles when I purchased it(covid lease). My spouse has a Rogue and it's lasted the 12 years owned, so I believed this is my reason to own one myself!

#1 pick

Always wanted a rogue. And I am not disappointed. It was seamless and felt like I should have had this car a long time ago. I enjoy driving my car.

4.1

I know what a transmission should feel like

All the features of this car are on the positive side save one. From day one the Transmission felt strange but because it was a new car I felt it would work itself out or I would get used to it. Then one day my wife said to me it sounds like the transmission is slipping and then I realized tha she who know nothing about cars felt what I did. Then Covid hit. As soon as I was able I took it in and the dealer told me tht unless a code comes up there is nothing to that can be done and it felt OK to the service manager and the certified mechanic who told me that the tranny feels that way because it is a CVT constant velosity transmission. Ben driving for 55 years and I am very uncomfortable driving an otherwise good verhicle and I am surprised that a company of Nissan's caliber would find this performance acceptable, I do not.
