Nissan Rogue | Improvements, Upgrades, & Changes for the 2021 Model

The popular Rogue was due for some upgrades and Nissan certainly delivered. A boxier almost truck like exterior styling, a slight increase in power to 181 HP and available AWD for around $1,400 are just the beginning.  They even completely redesigned the interior.

Critics have said the SV model provides the best mix of new features for the money with 18" aluminum wheels, 8-way power driver's seat and a 360-degree camera system. We like the SV Premium package which gets you a panoramic sunroof, roof rails and a power liftgate with an optional luxurious feeling faux leather interior upholstery. Finally, The SL and Platinum Rogues have leather interior, heated front seats and steering wheel, and three-zone climate control.

The infotainment systems and connectivity have received some serious upgrades with Android Auto ™ and Apple CarPlay ® now standard and a larger 9" digital touch-screen available in the SL and Platinum editions. The 12.3-inch digital dashboard display is unique to the Platinum model and it gets bundled with a 10.8-inch heads-up display and wireless phone charging pad.

Nissan was out to impress in the compact SUV category against the competitors like Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Rogues new Safety features, increased investment in interior technology, and new interior design make it a better option than most other compact SUVs for the money. Do not be fooled by some manufacturers with bigger jumps in prices to add in the options that come standard on vehicles like the 2021 Nissan Rogue.
