Sometimes an SUV can feel bland and unmemorable. But that’s not the case for the Nissan Rogue and a few standout features. During my week with the 2024 Nissan Rogue, I discovered a few things that will stick with me. 

What you need to know about the 2024 Nissan Rogue 

While the Toyota RAV4 is more popular, the 2024 Nissan Rogue proves to be a real contender that you need to consider. Sure, it may have less space and a loud engine, but it’s surprisingly comfortable and engaging. 

Check out a few things you need to know

  1. The 2024 Rogue has a massive panoramic sunroof. It opens wide to fill the cabin with fresh air. It has a good tint to allow beautiful views from the backseat without being too bright or blinding. 
  2. The ambient lighting is a little disappointing. While other SUVs have ambient lighting around the glove box, floor, or cup holders, the Rogue’s setup is lacking. It only has a thin LED light around the area where the wireless charging pad is located. 
  3. The power-adjustable seat has a mind of its own. When you turn the engine off, the seat doesn’t move back until you get out of the Rogue. Also, I had to move the seat forward to reach the pedal and start it each time. But when I started it, the seat moved back incredibly far. I adjusted the settings to my 5’1” size, but for some reason, the Rogue forgot my saved seat settings after a few days. 
  4. The Nissan Rogue has an excellent motion-activated power liftgate. It responds very quickly to kicking motions around the rear bumper. With other vehicles, I’ve looked crazy in parking lots while trying to get the motion sensors to work. Also, the tailgate only accidentally started to close on me once. 
  5. The Rogue has an upscale interior with plush leather-covered surfaces, metal brushed accents and textured patterns. It has a well-planned layout with everything you need placed within reach and clearly labeled controls. It’s a nice place to spend time. 
  6. The Active Noise Cancellation feature is outstanding. It keeps wind and road noise at bay, even at highway speeds. While driving in the rain through a neighborhood, you could hear the raindrops hit the roof as other noises were blocked. It was serene aside from the engine’s occasional whines. 
  7. The Nissan Rogue feels heavy and confident. The doors are heavy, making it feel like the Rogue is crafted with durable and high-quality materials. It doesn’t feel too light on the roads, providing more confidence. Also, the steering is a bit heavy which could be a drawback to those wanting a sportier experience. The Rogue weighs in at up to 3,713 lbs.
