2019 Nissan Rogue Review

The 2019 Nissan Rogue is part of the 2nd Rogue generation, introduced in 2014. With a price range of $24,800 to $32,890, the 2019 Rogue is certainly affordable. This crossover SUV comes in 3 trim levels (S, SV, and SL) with an additional Rogue Hybrid being available, as well as a smaller Rogue Sport model. The Rogue has all the key qualities that buyers would expect from a small crossover, such as great safety scores, plenty of space, and excellent comfort.

Configuration

Most models come standard with a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine, producing 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled with a continuously variable automatic transmission that sends power to the SUV’s front wheels, with all-wheel drive (AWD) being available as an option. The Hybrid has a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor, producing 176 hp combined output.

The S trim level includes 17-inch steel wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen display, folding rear seats that slide and recline, dual-USB inputs, Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay integration, as well as a 4-speaker CD player with satellite radio.

The SV trim level comes standard with 17-inch allow wheels, heated side mirrors, a hands-free opening liftgate, roof rails, keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear privacy glass, push-button ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as a 6-speaker audio system. Many of the features included with the SV trim level are also available for the S trim through the optional Special Edition package.

Last but not least, the SL includes 19-inch wheels, a heated steering wheel, fog lights, leather upholstery, driver-seat memory settings, an integrated navigation system, and a 9-speaker Bose audio system. A panoramic sunroof is also available for the SL (which is also available for SV), as well as LED headlights. The Platinum Reserve Interior package available for the SL adds tan leather upholstery to the mix.

Clearly, no matter the trim level, there’s plenty of desirable features for drivers and passengers alike to enjoy.

Fuel Efficiency

When it comes to fuel economy, the EPA rates the 2019 Nissan Rogue at 26 mpg city, 33 highway, and 29 combined. For all-wheel drive, those ratings are at 25 mpg highway, 32 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined. Meanwhile, the hybrid is rated at 34 mpg combined.

Safety

The S trim includes a rearview camera, as well as blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and lane keeping assist. Going up to the SV trim, and rear parking sensors are added, as well as reverse automatic braking. The top-trim SL has a surround-view camera system, and the Rogue comes with ProPilot Assist, which is a combination of semiautomated driving features that includes stop-and-go adaptive cruise control (a feature which can bring to the vehicle to a complete stop and start again), as well as steering assist (a feature that keeps the car centered in its lane).

Automatic emergency braking is a standard feature on all models in 2019, and the vehicle garners good scores when it comes to safety. Federal testers awarded it a 4-star overall score, while the IIHS labeled the 2019 Rogue as a Top Safety Pick, earning a “Good” score in all crash tests. Additionally, the automatic emergency brake feature was rated as “Superior” when it comes to avoiding front crashes.

As such, drivers and passengers alike can take comfort in knowing that, if something ever happened, they are in a vehicle that is designed to help protect them.

Style and Comfort

Just because this vehicle is affordable doesn’t mean that it sacrifices comfort or style!

The clean exterior follows the crossover trend, having a tall body, as well as high belt line, which rises towards the rear-roof pillar. Additionally, the 8.4-inch ground clearance could hint at some off-road capability. The car’s long wheelbase manages to swallow up road imperfections well.

The 2019 Rogue seats comfortably five people while also providing plenty of room for gear. The front seats provide all-day comfort and support, and the second row offers 37.9 inches of leg room for rear-seat riders. In addition, the car’s tall roofline provides plenty of head room even for taller passengers. With the 2nd row in place, the Rogue offers an impressive 39.3 cubic feet of space, and 70 cubic feet of cargo with the 2nd row down. The S trim level has durable cloth (which does not feel cheap!), the SV comes with power adjustment for the driver’s seat and the front seats are heated (which are features difficult to find for this price range), and the SL gets leather hides.

Conclusion

Overall, this affordable SUV provides comfort and security in a nice looking package.

History Facts - The Berlin Wall

  1. The Berlin Wall was built by the East German government to allegedly protect its people from the fascist elements of West Germany. The West Berlin city government called it the Wall of Shame because it restricted freedom of movement.
  2. From 1949 to 1961, when the wall was a threat but had not been constructed yet, over two million East Germans fled to the West. In 1961, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev agreed to help East Germany build the wall.
  3. 138 of the people who attempted to cross the Berlin Wall, were shot dead, committed suicide, or suffered tragic accidents. Ida Sikman who died on August 22, 1961, was the wall's first victim.
  4. The first person to escape the Wall was Conrad Schumann, an East German border guard corporal. He jumped over the three-foot-high roll of barbed wire. The wall's last victim was an East German who tried to fly over the wall with a hot air balloon but crashed into power lines.
  5. East German politburo member Gunter Schabowski, announced on November 9, 1989, that the restrictions on travel visas are lifted. The announcement, however, was one day too soon, resulting in thousands of East Berliners at the Wall. The border officers ultimately opened the crossing.
  6. The demolition of the Berlin Wall started in the summer of 1990. Most of the sections were recycled for other construction projects, but a few were auctioned off. Some are scattered in locations like the Vatican gardens, or the men's room at a Las Vegas casino.
