The 2020 Nissan Rogue is one of the best-selling compact crossovers on the market, with a solid mix of handsome styling and comfortable accommodations. It’s also Nissan’s most popular model, outselling others in its class. Still, it does afford a compliant ride and ample passenger space.
The 2020 Rogue comes standard with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine which is linked to a continuously variable transmission, making 170 horsepower with 175 foot-pounds of torque. It delivers a smooth acceleration. Fuel mileage is a solid 26 mpg in the city, 33mpg on the highway. It jumps to 29 mpg when combined with front-wheel drive, 27 mpg combined with all-wheel drive.
Rogue’s available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) can respond and adapt to changing conditions. Whether its snow, rain or tight turns, the Intelligent AWD automatically sends power to the wheels that need it most.
Whether it’s stop-and-go traffic, your favorite hill, or just another speed bump, Rogue uses technology that adapts the drive to a more comfortable mode. Intelligent trace control for those corners, active ride control for that bump or intelligent engine brake to slow you down with ease -the Rogue has it all.
Nissan’s signature “V-Motion” grille is still the centerpiece of the Rogue. It has standard halogen headlights with LED daytime running lights for a classy look. Front LED headlights are optional, and I am pleased to say LED taillights come standard.
The Rogue’s interior is a comfortable and attractive environment, and the Platinum Reserve Interior package gives you luxury with caramel-colored leather seats but it’s only available on the top-tier SL. Nissan’s Zero Gravity front bucket seats provide incredible comfort. The Rogue has excellent front-passenger space, so enjoy the ride.
Music, calls and texts are all integrated here. Intelligent Mobility keeps you connected, thanks to its seamless smartphone integration through your compatible phone. There are steering wheel controls to adjust volume and toggle through screens on a 7″ touch-screen display.
Nissan Door to Door Navigation helps keep you in the right direction with well detailed real-time Premium Traffic information. The 3D building graphics and seamless turn-by-turn directions stop you from getting lost.
The Rogue can transport luggage in the impressive cargo space with the seats up or down. Combined with decent cubby storage space, the Nissan Rogue is a practical vehicle. There is also Nissan’s Divide-N-Hide cargo system. It allows the rear floor to be raised or lowered, to be used as a shelf, or to cover hidden compartments. A rather creative idea. If you have your hand full -no worries. Just kick your foot under the rear bumper area and activate Rogue’s available Motion Activated Liftgate automatically. No more reaching for keys or struggling with bags.
It has numerous standard driver-assistance technologies making it one of Nissan’s top auto lease deals. Nissan Intelligent Mobility includes features that monitor in front of you, behind you, and on either side and can step in to help keep you safe. The six features below are standard on Rogue SV and above are automatic emergency braking w/pedestrian detection rear automatic braking rear cross-traffic alert blind-spot warning lane departure warning high beam assist
