New for 2019

A Special Edition model based on the S grade comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and chrome door handles and roof rails. Nissan's rear door alert system is now standard across the lineup. The availability of active driver assistance features has been expanded with lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and automatic high beams now standard on all models. SV and SL trims also come standard with rear automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors. ProPilot Assist is now standard on the SL grade and optional on mid-level SV trim as part of an optional package.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover that slots below the three-row Pathfinder and above the smaller Rogue Sport, which is called the Qashqai in other global markets and isn't directly related other than in name. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. A hybrid is also offered with your choice of front- or all-wheel-drive configurations,

Gas-powered models are available in three trims.

Rogue S: The base S trim comes with steel wheels, cloth upholstery, a four-speaker audio system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a USB port, a rearview camera, and manually-adjustable front seats.

Rogue SV: Moving up to the mid-level SV trim gets you a six-speaker audio system, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, an eight-way power adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, remote start, a hands-free power liftgate and rear parking sensors.

Rogue SL: Range-topping SL models adds 19-inch alloy wheels, memory for the driver's seat, a power-operated front passenger seat, leather upholstery, a Bose audio system, navigation, a surround-view camera system, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Navigation, the Bose audio system, 18-inch alloy wheels and the Around View Monitor (surround-view camera system) are available on the SV grade as part of the SV Premium package or the Sun and Sound Touring package. The SL Premium package adds a panoramic moonroof and LED headlights. Opting for the Platinum Reserve Interior package, which is exclusive to the SL trim, adds tan/black two-tone leather upholstery with quilted inserts.

Hybrid variants are only offered in two grades.

Rogue SV Hybrid: The base trim in the Rogue Hybrid comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, cloth upholstery, heated front seats, a six-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 5.0-inch screen, a USB port, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, and keyless entry and start.

Rogue SL Hybrid: Move up to the SL trim and you get a surround-view camera system, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, fog lights, LED headlights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The SL's additional standard features are available on the SV grade as part of the Premium package, which also adds a panoramic moonroof, a heated steering wheel, a Bose audio system, and memory for the driver's seat. SL models are also available with the Premium package, which adds the Bose audio system, the panoramic moonroof, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Powering the 2019 Nissan Rogue is a dated 2.5-liter I-4 with 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The Rogue Hybrid pairs a 2.0-liter I-4 with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack for a total system output of 176 hp. Both Rogue models come exclusively with a CVT.

EPA fuel economy ratings for the gas-only Rogue are 26/33 mpg city/highway for front-drive models and 25/32 mpg with all-wheel drive. Hybrid models are the most efficient at 33/35 mpg in front-drive guise of 31/34 mpg for all-wheel-drive-equipped examples.

Safety

The NHTSA gave the 2019 Nissan Rogue a four-star overall rating (out of a possible five stars). Hybrid models were only rated for front crash and rollover, where the model received four stars. In IIHS testing, the 2019 Rogue was rated Good in all tested categories except headlights, where it got an Acceptable rating (Good is the possible highest score). In the front crash prevention test, the 2019 Rogue received a Superior rating after it reduced the speed of a 12-mph impact by 11 mph and avoided a 25-mph collision (Superior is the highest rating).

Safety Shield 360, Nissan's suite of active driver assistance features comes standard on non-hybrids. It includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and rear cross-traffic alert. Rear automatic emergency braking is standard on the SV and SL grades but not available on the S trim. ProPilot Assist, Nissan's driving assist tech bundles adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist and lane centering, and is standard on the SL and optional on the SV. Hybrid models miss out on lane keeping assist and ProPilot Assist.

Utility

With all seats in place, the 2019 Nissan Rogue has a generous 39.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity; with the standard split-folding rear seats down, that expands to 70 cubic feet. Hybrid models have less space due to the battery taking up space behind the rear seats. Capacity shrinks to 27.3 cubic feet with all seats in place and 61.3 cubic feet with the second row folded. Max towing capacity is 1,102 pounds when properly equipped. Hybrid variants aren't rated for towing.

What We Think

We recently pitted the Nissan Rogue in a 2019 Big Test against its competitive set including the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, Chevrolet Equinox, Jeep Cherokee and Hyundai Tucson. The well-packaged interior, comfortable seats and trick adjustable cargo floor won praise from our judges. However, it ended up in sixth place due to its sloppy handling, unresponsive steering, and inconsistent interior material quality. Nissan's infotainment system, despite being user-friendly, is also dated with one judge noting that "it feels more RadioShack than Apple Store."

The Rogue Hybrid offers better fuel efficiency but lacks refinement. It feels slower than it actually because of the CVT's delayed reactions. In a 2017 First Test, we also noted that transitions between the electric motor and gas engine are rough, and the slow steering makes the Rogue Hybrid hard to maneuver.

Cool Fact

Unlike the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, the Nissan Rogue Hybrid utilizes a conventional all-wheel-drive system with a mechanical connection.
