2020 Nissan Rogue SL

Pros: Respectable fuel-economy; broad range of standard and available equipment; generously sized, versatile rear cargo area

Cons: Mediocre acceleration; transmission isn’t as responsive as some class competitors; engine is noisy during acceleration

CG Says: The 2020 Nissan Rogue drops its hybrid models. Otherwise, Rogue is essentially unchanged. Rogue is a compact crossover SUV that seats five passengers. A third-row seat is no longer available. The sole powertrain is a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with a CVT transmission. All models are available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Available safety features include forward-collision warning and mitigation with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, rear automatic braking, high-beam assist, and adaptive cruise control. Other available features include heated steering wheel and hands-free power liftgate. The Nissan Rogue’s numerous enhancements for 2017 made it an even more compelling choice in its highly competitive segment. Plus, the addition of standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability and the availability of Nissan’s ProPILOT “semi-autonomous” driver-assist system for 2018 made it that much more appealing. Rogue’s acceleration is a bit sluggish, but its classy interior trimmings and outstanding cargo versatility rank among the best in its class.
