Since its inception, the Nissan Rogue has performed admirably against competitors like the Honda CR-V or the Volkswagen Tiguan. The 2021 Nissan Rogue redesign, however, is setting new standards in the compact SUV market, and puts the Rogue far ahead of its competition.

2021 Nissan Rogue: What’s Changed Since 2020?

The 2021 model year marks the start of a new generation for the Nissan Rogue. Its ground-up redesign gives it a tougher, truck-like appearance while also giving the driver advanced control in all types of driving conditions. There are many differences between the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2020 Nissan Rogue, but we’ll cover the basics below:

  • Unlike the 2020 model, the 2021 Nissan Rogue offers 4 trim levels for Lexington drivers: The S, SV, SL, and the new Platinum trim level.
  • A main difference between the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2020 Nissan Rogue is its length and height. The 2021 Nissan Rogue is slightly shorter and lower than the current 2020 model, making it easier to load cargo and step into the cabin.
  • The newly designed Nissan Rogue interior offers a driver-centered console that gives the driver ultimate control over media, climate systems, and the intelligent AWD system. Passengers will also be able to relax in style with new seating and a bevy of entertainment features.
  • The Nissan Rogue exterior borrows designs from the Nissan Sentra like swept-back LED headlights, a double v-motion grille, and a “floating” roof for a more aggressive, truck-like design.
  • The 2021 Nissan Rogue S is expected to start around $26,000 MSRP, however, Nissan has yet to release an official price.

2021 Nissan Rogue Interior Preview

The 2021 Nissan Rogue interior is one of the most anticipated aspects of its redesign. Upgraded interior features offer multiple soft-touch surfaces throughout the cabin and upgraded tech gives the driver more control over navigation, entertainment, and smartphone integration. See some of the new features being offered on the 2021 Nissan Rogue below:

  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ compatibility
  • 8-inch or 9-inch touchscreen
  • 8-way power driver’s seat
  • Three-zone climate control
  • Four-way power front passenger’s seat
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Driver’s seat and steering memory function
  • Wireless charging
  • 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster
  • Head-up display,
  • Built-in navigation
  • 10-speaker Bose audio system
  • Much more!

Overall, the 2021 Nissan Rogue interior was designed to prioritize driver and passenger comfort. The tri-zone climate control and optional second-row window shades will keep passengers comfortable on long Berea drives while the panoramic sunroof will provide a one-of-a-kind sightseeing experience.

2021 Nissan Rogue Safety Feature Preview

For its 2021 model year, the Nissan Rogue will have the most standard safety features of any vehicle in its class. The upgraded Nissan Safety Shield® 360 comes standard on each of the four 2021 Nissan Rogue trim levels and will offer the following features:

  • Rear automatic braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Radar-based blind-spot warning
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • High-beam assist
  • LED headlights
  • Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection

The Nissan Safety Sheild® 360 suite can also be upgraded to include driver alertness monitoring, load limiters, rear-door alert, and rear seat belt pre-tensioners for a safer drive around London.

2021 Nissan Rogue Performance Preview

Another major difference between the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2020 Nissan Rogue is the new standard engine. The 2020 Nissan Rogue comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that offers 170 hp, while the new 2021 Nissan Rogue will come with a 2.5L engine that offers more horsepower and better fuel economy ratings.

2.5L Inline Four-Cylinder Engine:

  • 181 hp
  • 181 lb-ft of torque
  • 30 mpg combined EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy
