Starting at $26,800, the 2021 Nissan Rogue has been reimagined with a fresh new design. Let’s take a look at what the reviews are saying about the best-selling vehicle.

With a fresh face, the Rogue is ready to bust out of that quarantine life, especially with 27mpg city and 35mpg on the highway. You can expect to find a more distinct exterior accented by LED lighting signatures and a new, boxier build that gives it a more “attractive styling” as stated by Car and Driver. The 2021 model offers a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and 181 horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive are standard though all-wheel drive is available. U.S. News was complimentary about the Rogue’s serviceable nature because of its revamped chassis and new multilink rear suspension. Those critical changes result in a more polished handling for the driver.

Inside all of the models, you will find an upscale cabin quality packed with ample passenger and cargo space. “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,” as noted by Car and Driver.

With four models to choose from, which one is the best for you? Car and Driver can help with that choice. Here’s what they had to say about choosing the model for you:

“The mid-level SV model offers the best mix of features for the money. It adds niceties such as 18-inch aluminum wheels, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a 360-degree exterior camera system, and Nissan's ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving mode. We'd spring for the SV Premium package too, which adds a panoramic sunroof, a power-operated rear liftgate, roof rails, and faux-leather upholstery.”

Edmunds shares that the 2021 Rogue Platinum has “upscale elements such as a digital instrument panel, quilted leather seats and ambient illumination.” No doubt a welcome addition to the Rogue’s top trim level.

The 2021 Nissan Rogue may have some spice but it’s the sugar that makes it one of the safest SUVs around. With driver aids that are intuitive and easy to use, you can have peace of mind at every turn. Key safety features that U.S. News notes were standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
