Posted on January 26, 2021
The Nissan Rogue has long been a fierce competitor in the compact crossover class, holding its own against class rivals such as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda CX-5. However, its style and features were lagging behind the competition.
With a complete redesign for the 2021 model, Nissan brings the Rogue back into the game with a strong contender that leaves mediocrity behind and moves from good to great.
2021 Nissan Rogue Overview
The 2021 Nissan Rogue offers more new features than can be listed: more attractive styling, improved performance, better ride and handling, and modernized interior technology, among others. Starting at $28,498, the 2021 Nissan Rogue is available in three model configurations: S, SV, and Platinum.
New standard features on the Rogue include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a larger infotainment touchscreen, heated outside mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, and more.

While the 2021 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, just like the previous generation, the 2021 model gets a power bump to 181 horsepower. The engine also provides better acceleration and adept handling, which were complaints about the previous model years.
2021 Nissan Rogue vs 2020 Nissan Rogue - Style Differences
The Rogue's interior styling was completely redone for 2021 and now features a bi-level dashboard with hidden storage cubbies and a squared-off shift knob. These rich-looking design elements are not just for show--they offer improved usability for the driver. With the redesign, the 2021 Rogue does lose a little bit of cargo capacity compared to the 2020 model. The 2021 version offers 1,033 L compared to 1,104 L in the previous model.
The redesign of the Rogue also impacted the exterior styling. Both the headlights and taillights were upgraded to LED, providing improved visibility and styling. The front grille is now a double V-motion, and the rear got a new spoiler and name badge.

Technology features were upgraded for the 2021 Nissan Rogue as well. Rear passengers can control the temperature separately in their area with dual and tri-zone temperature controls. A 9-inch touchscreen, fully digital dashboard, and head-up display are now options for the 2021 Rogue.
