The 2019 Nissan Rogue Beats Its Competitors in a Quiet Way

As Nissan continues to make drastic improvements to its Rogue SUV, there are a few versions that shine more than most. One of the most highly-rated versions of the Rogue would have to be the 2019 model. The 2019 Rogue is not only modern and affordable, but it beats its competitors in a quiet way.

Nissan’s Rogue is an easy-going ride. It’s ideal for everyday driving on city streets and, of course, up in the suburbs. The 2019 Rouge is part of the model’s second generation and has a 170-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A continuously variable automatic is standard, and you can shop for models with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. 

According to Consumer Reports, the 2019 Rouge has a real-world fuel economy of 26 mpg. This figure is about average for the compact SUV class. The 2019 Rogue is also available as a hybrid, with an EPA rating of 34 mpg overall.

Most reviewers credit the Rogue for its gentleness, but competitors, including the Honda CR-V, are more agile. The Rouge is also pretty slow for the class, with a 0-to-60 rating of about nine seconds. However, reviewers at CR recognize that the Rogue is quieter than the CR-V, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4. The Rogue’s engine noise can get loud as you accelerate to higher speeds, but not too bad. Road and wind noise isn’t a considerable drawback either.

The Rogue is a comfortable five-seater. Its seats are accommodating, and the back row has generous legroom. This Nissan stands out for its cargo space too. Plus, critics were also pretty impressed with the Rogue’s trendy interior design. 

“Open and airy, the Rogue’s interior looks appealing when you open the door. Patterned cloth seats, a padded dashboard top, piano black trim, and stitched accents on the door armrests are all nice touches that make a good first impression.”

In addition to its well-insulated cabin, the 2019 Rogue also comes with a long list of in-car technology. All models have desirable infotainment features, including a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth. Nissan also made more advanced safety features standard for 2019, including forward-collision warning and blind-spot monitoring. You can shop for versions with Nissan’s ProPilot Assist system, which can further simplify your driving experience.
