The 2020 Nissan Rogue continues to stand as a competent crossover by embedding its muscular appearance, a gamut of safety features, and having quality technology. The newly redesigned model can be expected to hit the market in 2021 with new features and specifications. Let’s see what the newly revamped model has in store for us.
The Nissan Rogue has a clean and functional look. The high window lane rises towards the roof in the back. There is Nissan’s V-shaped grille, which is loved by its customers. Coming to the rear, the liftgate buttons are thoughtfully placed. On the whole style-wise, the company has kept things simple and practical for its users.
Engine and Performance
The Rogue comes with a standard set-up of 170-hp-four-cylinder along with continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). It appears that Nissan has dropped its hybrid, which was available in the 2019 model. It has impressive suspension, which offers a relaxed and comfortable ride.
This crossover comes with lots of space and adequate room for gear. It ranks quite high on comfort and quality. The front seats are heated, power-adjustable, and comfortable in Rogue SL and SV models. Base versions have the option to add heated seats by spending a little extra money. The lineup offers a legroom of 38-inches, which means big bodies can comfortably accommodate themselves.
Even with all the space inside, the lineup offers an impressive cargo space of 39.3 cubic feet. And if you fold the back seat down, you get the cargo space to 70 cubic feet. You will also find underfloor bins to store small items under the floor.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue acquired a four-star rating for crashworthiness from Federal testers, which is quite rare. When it comes to safety, Rogue scored impressively in all its other tests well. The lineup comes with active lane control, automatic emergency braking, rear-cross traffic alerts, blind-spot monitors, and high-beam assist. These features are standard in all the trims of the 2020 lineup.
Moreover, Rogue SV and SL trims have been integrated with an expanded suite featuring automatic emergency braking and driver assistance features. These features come in handy when drivers are not paying attention to the vehicle but are not a hands-free option.
There is also a ProPilot assist, which helps in steering, speeding, and slowing down the vehicle during long drives. Additionally, if it does not identify hands on the vehicle for less than 20 seconds, it alerts the driver with a beam. Moreover, it also beeps when the vehicle identifies a car ahead and when drivers have to change lanes.
The 2020 Nissan Rogue comes with a standard infotainment system integrated with a good 7.0-inch touchscreen for NissanConnect. The system supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Physical buttons are well-placed around the touchscreen, which proves to be helpful. The lineup can be integrated with 4G LTE Wi-Fi as a part of the dealer-installed accessory.
With good features, high safety, and a competitive warranty, the 2020 Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover to look forward to in the coming year.
