It’s no secret that the prices of SUVs are going up. Especially as more vehicles like the Hyundai Santa Fe try to become more luxurious to compete against the Toyota RAV4. However, what about the 2021 Nissan Rogue? Is it overpriced or perfect for its value?
Is the 2021 Nissan Rogue a good SUV?
It’s a little too early to tell if the 2021 Nissan Rogue is a good option. We need more driver reviews and possibly test-drive ourselves before we determine if it’s a good SUV. However, we do know that the 2021 Nissan Rogue starts around $26k.
This price seems a little steep for a cross-over with five seats, but it promises a luxury interior and performance. The 2020 Toyota Rav4 starts around $25k, so the Rogue’s pricing isn’t far off the mark.

Also, the 2021 Nissan Rogue has performance upgrades, including a better fuel economy. It gets up to 27 mpg in the city and up to 35 mph on the highway. You won’t find a much better fuel economy unless you go hybrid.
2021 Nissan Rogue performance
The 2021 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter inline-four engine that pumps out 180 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. This is a slight increase from the 2020 model with 170 horsepower.
According to Nissan, the new redesign of the Nissan Rogue and its upright shape create a better driving performance. It should have improved handling with a smoother and more controlled ride.
Front-wheel drive is standard with the Nissan Rogue, but you can upgrade to all-wheel-drive. Also, driving modes include off-road, snow, eco, daily commute, and sport. So, the Rogue can handle slippery conditions and get you to your camping site.
2021 Nissan Rogue features
The 2021 Nissan Rogue currently brags about having the most standard safety features in its class. It includes Nissan Safety Shield 360 with rear-cross traffic alert, blind-spot detection, forward collision prevention with pedestrian detection, automatic rear braking, and more.
Also, the 2021 Rogue got some tech updates too, including an optional full digital dashboard, 9″ infotainment center, a digital cluster display, and a heads up display that shows crucial information such as turn by turn navigation instructions.
Along with a more confident exterior design, the Nissan Rogue gained an incredible interior refresh as well. The cab is now quieter for the driver and passengers to enjoy. Plus, the automatic tri-zone climate control keeps everyone comfortable.
The backseat is now larger, with wider rear doors, making it easier for adults to climb in the back too. The zero-gravity seats provide comfort and support while increasing the amount of headroom and legroom. Plus, innovative storage bins and the butterfly opening center console keeps clutter tucked away.
Also, ProPilot assistance can assist with curves and distancing from other cars during your daily commute so that you can relax. However, you still need to remain alert to drive this SUV. It doesn’t drive for you.
This is all the information that has been provided so far, but we should learn more soon. The 2021 Nissan Rogue is expected to hit dealership lots by the fall of 2020. Until then, we can determine that the 20201 Nissan Rogue is not overpriced. Instead, it’s a luxurious bargain.
