Derived from the same recipe that made its predecessor a success, but with a thorough slate of improvements, the all-new 2021 Rogue comes in S, SV, SL, and new Platinum trim levels. The Rogue SV and SL offer a Premium option package that adds desirable upgrades, and some paint colors cost extra.
Power evaluated a Rogue SL equipped with FWD, the Premium Package, a set of floor mats, cargo area protection, and extra-cost paint. Before we discuss the results of our evaluation of the redesigned 2021 Rogue, it is helpful to understand who bought the previous-generation version of this compact SUV, and what they liked most and least about their vehicles.
Owners indicate their least favorite things about the outgoing Rogue were (in descending order) the interior design, driving comfort, infotainment system, powertrain, and fuel economy. In the sections that follow, our independent expert provides his perceptions about how the 2021 Nissan Rogue measures up in each of the ten categories that comprise the APPEAL Study.
And thanks to its front and rear simulated skid plates and gray lower body trim, it won't be mistaken for anything but an SUV. Overall, the new Rogue looks good and features standard front and rear LED lighting elements.
The appealing design continues on the inside of the new 2021 Rogue, which Nissan developed around what it calls a “Family Hub” concept. A new electronic shifter means Nissan can provide extra storage space on and below the center console.
The front middle armrest is split butterfly-style for improved utility, and the door pockets are designed to hold 32-ounce water bottles. Simple, smart design governs the control layout, and the SL test vehicle had leather upholstery and appealing materials and details throughout the cabin.
Platinum trim upgrades the Rogue with premium semi-aniline leather in a quilted pattern, contrast stitching, ambient cabin lighting, and more. That's true of the 2021 Nissan Rogue, too, and this year the company makes it easier to load passengers thanks to rear doors that open to a nearly 90-degree angle.
These figures are on par with the previous Rogue, a little smaller behind the back seat, and a little bigger when it's folded down. Nissan says it has improved the Rogue's Divide-N-Hide cargo management system, and it has added storage wells on either side that can hold one-gallon jugs of milk or water.
You'll also discover unusual details about the Rogue, such as a setting that instructs the navigation system to predicatively suggest destinations that it learns you travel too often. A NissanConnect infotainment system is standard in every 2021 Rogue, sitting high on the dashboard and equipped with stereo knobs and handy shortcut buttons.
In its most basic format, the infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth hands-free calling and music streaming, hands-free text messaging support, Sirius satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. With SV and SL trim, the infotainment system adds a Wi-Fi hotspot and NissanConnect services, including Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integration.
Get the Premium Package for the Rogue SL, and the SUV comes with a larger 9-inch touchscreen display, wireless Apple CarPlay, a door-to-door navigation system that provides directions via smartphone app if you need to walk the last part of your journey, Sirius traffic data, and one-shot voice recognition technology that works reasonably well. Support for that boast starts with Safety Shield 360, Nissan's collection of advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS).
Note that the Rogue Platinum also includes a center front-seat airbag, a rare and unusual feature regardless of vehicle class, let alone a compact SUV. Choose the Rogue SV, and both a surround-view camera system and Nissan's Copilot Assist technology are standard.
For 2021, Nissan upgrades Copilot Assist with a next-generation radar unit and a new camera, resulting in smoother and more accurate operation. This means navigation map data and GPS positioning add a layer of intelligence to how the adaptive cruise control works.
The system automatically reduces speed for upcoming curves, freeway junctions, and exit ramps. But the non-stop dinging and boop-boop-booping, unaccompanied by messages on the driver information display or the infotainment screen to explain their meaning, quickly becomes tiresome.
It pairs with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters that Nissan says will deliver better acceleration, responsiveness, and fuel economy. Programmed ratios make the CVT sound and feel more natural, and most people won't identify any droning unless they're wringing the engine for all the power it can produce.
Thinking about how SUVs are used, such as for road trips to the mountains, and knowing that in places like Denver, the thinner atmosphere at elevation takes a toll on the performance of normally aspirated engines, I asked a Nissan representative if the company considered adding a turbocharged engine option to address these kinds of buyers. In the 2021 Rogue, Nissan's comfortable Zero Gravity seat designs offer a greater range of adjustment and improved support in a cabin that boasts added rear-seat legroom and headroom.
Nissan's Quick Comfort heated front seats are available for the SV and standard with SL and Platinum trim. Overall, the Rogue is very comfortable, and Nissan pads the places where your arms and legs are likely to come into contact with the cabin.
Dual-zone automatic climate control is standard with SV trim, while the SL and Platinum offer a triple-zone system. In addition to a thicker dashboard insulator, greater suspension isolation, and acoustic front glass, the Rogue is more aerodynamic and creates less wind noise.
Starting with a platform constructed of 35% high-strength steel (vs. 19% in the previous model), Nissan bolts on a strut-type front and new multi-link rear suspension with double-piston shock absorbers. “This is technology that does what a human can't,” said Chris Reed, senior vice president, Research and Development, Nissan Technical Center North America.
The Rogue feels more substantial, is enjoyable to drive on various roads, and the steering is dramatically improved. In the previous Rogue, it felt heavy and wooden, making the SUV dull to drive.
At higher freeway speeds, both of the test vehicle's side mirrors suffered from a subtle vibration that made it hard to identify objects within them. In fact, with its newly refined styling and interior, added comfort and convenience, upgraded safety and infotainment technology, and dramatically improved driving dynamics, all that's missing here is more power.
