The 2020 Nissan Rogue continues for the 2020 model year with no major changes with a price tag of $24,490. It is offered in three trims namely S, SV, and SL. All these trims are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that makes 170 hp and 175 lb-ft. of torque. Although its acceleration is very boring, its fuel economy is worth appreciating.

The Rogue's cabin will certainly impress many buyers for its upscale and stylish cabin. At 70 cu-ft. of cargo space, the Rogue is one of the largest cargo haulers in its class. This SUV also benefits from top safety features and strong resale values. The Rogue compels the buyers to sway away from popular choices like Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and the Toyota RAV4.

Overall Rating


This isn't the freshest compact crossover around, but it has a surprisingly versatile interior and offers some welcome technology- Cnet

For the longest time, the Nissan Rogue has dominated the compact crossover segment, including other Japanese competitors such as the CR-V and the RAV4. It is currently the last model year of the current generation as Nissan is all set to introduce an all-new Rogue for the next model year. Yet, this one doesn't feel old enough and impress its buyers with its spacious interiors, stellar fuel economy, and value-added features. 

However, its ownership costs are slightly higher than other Japanese competitors which come close to $7,200 every year. This particular cost includes maintenance, repair, fuel, finance, etc. Also, its average cost per mile is calculated to be $0.48, which is almost the same as its rivals. In terms of reliability, although it scored 82 points, it ranks below its core rivals in the J.D. Power reliability test.

2020 Nissan Rogue Engine and Performance

4.5/10

The Rogue’s ride quality is excellent, and it gives the SUV an overall relaxed gait, which most buyers in this segment will appreciate- Kelly Blue Book

Power for the Nissan Rogue comes from a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that produces 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. It is connected to an Xtronic CVT transmission to drive power to the front wheels. But, AWD configuration is available. The engine performs well in the city, but when pushed hard on the highway, it produces a loud droning noise. The transmission, with its fast shifts, does well in accelerating the car, however, it gets noisy when you are pushing the car to limits.

2020 Nissan Rogue engine

The handling and ride quality of this car is ideal for city conditions. The suspension absorbs most of the road imperfections, but periodically, a few will make their way into the cabin. The handling though is on the softer side and makes the driver confident in its abilities. The steering ratio feels quite slow and it telegraphs basically nothing to your hands about what the front tires are doing. But, it short turning radius makes it maneuverable in tight spaces thanks to its clever dimensions. 

2020 Nissan Rogue takes 9.7 sec to reach 60 MPH

Don't expect jaw-dropping acceleration in the Rogue. It sprints from 0-60 MPH in 9.7 seconds, which is the slowest in the class. It covers a quarter of a mile in 17.3 seconds with a top speed of 115 MPH. Overtaking cars inside the city does not require much effort, but while on the highway, this car would have been better with little more acceleration. However, the Rogue performs well in the braking test.  It comes to a complete halt from 60-0 MPH in just 124 feet.

2020 Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy

5.5/10

The EPA rates the Rogue among the most fuel-efficient in its class- CarAndDriver

The Nissan Rogue has a pretty decent fuel economy. It can manage 26 MPG in the city, 33 MPG on the highway, and 29 MPG combined with the FWD drivetrain. Opting for the AWD system drops down the fuel economy by 2 MPG in combined form. These figures are competitive for the segment. The Rogue comes with idle start/stop technology to improve fuel economy. 

2020 Nissan Rogue three-quarter view

This technology can shut the engine down when you’re at a stoplight and start instantaneously as you pull away. The Rogue gets a decently sized fuel tank of 14.5 gallons. At its full capacity, the SUV can drive up to 428 miles combined, which further reduces to 413 miles for AWD models. Therefore, the Rogue is a perfect vehicle for long family trips.

The Honda CR-V has the best fuel efficiency here. The fuel estimates of the Toyota RAV4 are almost similar to the CR-V and slightly more efficient than the Rogue. On the other hand, the Mazda CX-5 is a tad bit on the lower side in terms of efficiency. Overall, the Rogue has excellent fuel economy and stands firmly against its class rivals.

2020 Nissan Rogue Interior

7.0/10

The Rogue's interior uses quality materials that are well-assembled- Edmunds

The Nissan Rogue's cabin features good-quality materials while the build quality is great. The flat-bottom steering wheel is leather-wrapped on all but the S trim. Speaking of front-seat comfort, they provide good levels of comfort and support. Nissan calls them NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats. They are leather-wrapped only on the SLT rim while the lower trims get cloth upholstery. Except for the S trim, the front seats are heated and power-adjustable. 

2020 Nissan Rogue dashboard

The sitting position makes for a commanding driving position and a good view of the road ahead. Adding to the front-seat comfort is great head and legroom. Just like the front seats, the rear seats are also comfortable and the recline angle is also perfect. There's a lot of passenger space so three adults can sit comfortably at the back. The second row can be tilted and slid for additional legroom. The optional panoramic sunroof cust headroom for six-footers. 

 

2020 Nissan Rogue infotainment system

The 7-inch touchscreen display is standard across all trims and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The quality of the screen is good along with the touch response which is fairly quick. Nissan Connect services also ensure the seamless connectivity of your smartphone along with turn-by-turn navigation. The top-end SL trim comes with a 9-speaker Bose sound system while the S and SV trims get 4 and 6-speaker stereo.

2020 Nissan Rogue Exterior

5.0/10

We think Nissan’s 2020 Rogue is a handsome, relatively subdued compact SUV- Kelly Blue Book

The exterior styling of the Nissan Rogue is too old and can't compete with its redesigned rivals. Therefore, it will be redesigned for the upcoming model year. Starting from the front, the headlights nicely integrate into the V-motion grille and the whole front-end looks well designed. The top-of-the-line SL model replaces halogen headlamps with LED projectors and also adds fog lamps. 

2020 Nissan Rogue three-quarter view

As far as the wheels go, they are 18-inch alloys on the S and SV trims and 19-inch alloys on the SL model. The Rogue has a ground clearance of 7.8 inches, which is good enough for an SUV. From the side view, the design is not very bold but it's kind of smooth and rounded. The wide wheelbase translates for a spacious interior. The Rogue carries over with the chrome accent across the rear and LED taillights.

The Toyota RAV4 sits 0.6 inches above the Rogue, which is adequate for off-roading purposes. With an overall length of 179.1 inches, the Mazda CX-5 is the shortest car in this competition. Therefore, it will be easy to maneuver it at tight spots. The Honda CR-V's short wheelbase doesn't impact its rear-seat passenger space but instead, it helps to burn out pretty fast for quick acceleration. Some of the Rogue's exterior features are:

  • Halogen headlamps
  • LED DRLs
  • LED taillights
  • Fog lights
  • Chrome door handles
  • 17 & 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Heated mirrors

2020 Nissan Rogue vs 2020 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V tops the list for compact SUVs and offers better acceleration than the Rogue.

2020 Nissan Rogue vs 2020 Mazda CX- 5

The Mazda CX-5 is slightly more powerful than the Rogue, is more fun to drive, and won’t overwhelm you with power. It feels composed and agile, unlike the Rogue. It is a bit more efficient as well. The CX-5 is short on cargo space but makes up for it with upscale and tech-driven inside.

2020 Nissan Rogue vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 has one of the most powerful base engines in its class and hence, better acceleration. Both SUVs share the same stage in terms of fuel economy and cargo capacity.

Overall, the RAV4 wins the battle with better reliability and low ownership costs.
