2020 Nissan Rogue Overview

Nissan’s Rogue is one of the best-selling compact crossovers on the market. Last refreshed in 2017, the Rogue carries over mostly unchanged for 2020. It faces off against the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4.

Nissan’s signature "V-Motion" grille is still the centerpiece of the Rogue. It's flanked by standard halogen headlights with LED daytime-running lights for a premium look. Front LED headlights are optional, while LED taillights come standard. Depending on the trim, 17-, 18-, or 19-inch wheels come standard.

The Rogue’s powertrain, a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated for 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, carries over unchanged. It’s paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard and an intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) is available. With FWD, the Rogue returns 26 mpg city, 33 highway, and 29 combined. With AWD, it returns 25/32/27.

Inside, you’ll have the choice of Charcoal or Almond color schemes. A third row is optional, which is rare for this segment. Standard features in the base S trim include Zero Gravity front seats, ambient lighting, and a sliding and reclining second row. The SV trim adds dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry and start, and a hands-free liftgate. Step up to the SL for leather upholstery, memory settings for the driver’s seat, and a heated steering wheel.

The Rogue’s infotainment system consists of a 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth across all trims. A 4-speaker audio system comes standard, though it can be upgraded to a Bose premium audio system. Satellite radio, navigation, and voice recognition are also optional upgrades.

The 2020 Nissan Rogue earns a 4-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave Good ratings to the 2019 Rogue in all crash tests. Standard safety features in every Rogue include a reversing camera, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, lane intervention, and rear cross-traffic alert. Options include rear automatic braking, a surround-view camera, and the ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system.

Nissan provides updated styling and a thoughtful list of features with the 2020 Rogue.
