Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2019 Nissan Rogue OVERVIEW
The 2019 Nissan Rogue isn't here to reinvent the wheel. It’s not the fastest, the flashiest, or the biggest car on the block. It’s here to provide the market with exactly the formula that’s been selling off the shelves: good comfort, solid utility, and tempting value.
What's New for 2019
The Rogue returns mostly unchanged for 2019. The only significant changes have to do with option restructuring. A new package bundles luxury features, and active safety technology is now more widely available across the trim range.
Choosing Your Nissan Rogue
All Rogues use the same power plant, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), but it can send power to either the front or all four wheels. All-wheel drive is a $1,350 upgrade on all trims.
Mileage for the front-wheel-drive model is respectable at an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 29 combined. Opting for all-wheel drive doesn’t hurt too much, dropping fuel economy to 25/32/27 mpg (city/highway/combined).
Cargo space is excellent for a crossover, with 39.3 cubic feet behind the seats. That number expands to 70 cubes with the rear seats down. Tech is a strong point as well – all Rogues leave the lot with blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, and automatic emergency braking, not to mention a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen (which is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto).
The remaining features are sprinkled across the Rogue’s three trim levels:
The best value in the 2019 Nissan Rogue range is the base trim. The Special Edition Package is an excellent value – with it equipped, the Rogue has a base feature set that few competitors can match.
Nissan continues to offer strong finance incentives in May. Cash savings can reach up to $6,000 on models like the 2020 Murano. However, some models see increases in promotional... View All Nissan Lease Deals
