If you’ve been searching for a compact SUV that delivers a smooth ride, a comfortable and quiet interior, lots of room for cargo, and outstanding safety scores, there should be a 2021 Nissan Rogue in your future. The Rogue is not only the most popular model at Nissan dealers like the Watsonville area Nissan dealership, but it’s also one of the best-selling vehicles in its segment.
Nissan completely redesigns the Rogue for 2021. On the outside, customers at the Nissan dealership near Watsonville will notice the Rogue’s boxier styling. Perhaps the most noteworthy change is in the cabin, which receives updated styling with cues from the Nissan Altima and Sentra. The range-topping Premium trim now comes with upmarket features that include ambient lighting, quilted leather seats, and a digital instrument panel. ProPilot Assist now comes with adaptive cruise control that’s linked to the navigation system. Finally, the engine gets a bit more power, and the transmission is retuned to provide even better handling
The 2021 Nissan Rogue gets excellent reviews from the automotive media. Autoblog writes:
“The improved driving dynamics are a big win, and the interior styling on its more expensive trims helps it stand out. However, nearly every entry in this segment is damn good at being a small family runabout. ... Top 10 sales seem destined to continue...”
The 2021 Nissan Rogue seats five passengers and is available in four trim levels: S, SV, SL and Premium. The 2012 Rogue is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 181 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
