What kind of vehicle is the 2024 Nissan Rogue? What does it compare to?
The Nissan Rogue is a five-passenger compact crossover. It’s a rival of other crossover SUVs like the Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4. Mitsubishi’s Outlander is mechanically related to the Rogue, though it offers a tiny third row of seating.
Is the 2024 Nissan Rogue a good SUV?
The 2024 Rogue is a generally good pick among its classmates. It could use more punch under the hood, and the styling might not work for everyone, but it has attractive price points, good fuel economy, and a comfortable ride. That’s good for a TCC Rating of 6.3 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
What’s new for the 2024 Nissan Rogue?
The refreshed Rogue sports new ends and Google built-in operating and infotainment system on top SL and Platinum grades.
The five-seat Rogue wears a new take on Nissan’s old V-shaped grille. It spreads its wings into the running lights up top, and its slotted five-bar grille stretches more to the ends. The taillights are slightly different, and new 18-inch alloy wheel designs add some differentiation within its rounded wheel arches. The chunky rear and busy light elements up front look best when crowned with a black roof in two-tone body options.
The big changes come inside on the SL grade, which now comes standard with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen that stretch horizontally across a dash that bows toward the driver. A climate panel with buttons and dials sits below, and below that is a newly standard wireless smartphone charger. Wireless smartphone connectivity pairs with familiar Google apps such as Google Maps for a more seamless, integrated experience with either Apple or Android devices. It’s the first Nissan to use Google built-in, which is being adopted by many automakers. A flat-bottomed steering wheel and joystick-like gear level in the console carry on.
It’s powered by a turbo-3 engine and puts 201 hp to the front or all four wheels through a droning continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). That yields good fuel economy ratings of 33 mpg combined in front-wheel form or 31 combined with all-wheel drive, though acceleration suffers for it.
The quiet cabin and soft ride help the Rogue feel more upscale than it is, with enough space for four adults and a deceptively large cargo area.
Standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection as well as blind-spot monitors and strong crash-test scores make the Rogue a safe choice. Nissan’s ProPilot Assist system allows limited stints of hands-free driving and is available in SL and Platinum trims.
How much does the 2024 Nissan Rogue cost?
The Rogue starts at just under $30,000, with destination, and all-wheel drive adds another $1,500. That’s for the entry-level S with 17-inch wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a satellite radio trial, two USB-C ports, and an expanded 3-year trial (instead of six months) for Nissan’s connected app service that enables remote door locking, engine start/stop, and a vehicle health report from a smartphone. You can also remotely set climate control and heated seats and steering wheel from the app on cold days.
We’d spend our money on the SV. For about $1,500 more, it gets bigger alloy wheels, a power driver’s seat, and a competitive host of driver-assistance features. It’s a strong value among crossovers.
