The 2021 Nissan Rogue nudges its way upstream with a more refined ride and more standard features but the powertrain doesn’t take any steps forward.

PROS
Clever storage areas
Platinum trim
More potent powertrain
Stronger presence
Standard safety features

CONS
Only one engine
Some flimsy switchgear
No hybrid...yet
Odd headlight design

The 2021 model year will mark the start of a new generation for the Nissan Rogue. The compact SUV receives a ground-up redesign, and its new, boxier styling gives it a more handsome and truck-like appearance.The mid-level SV model offers the best mix of features for the money. It adds niceties such as 18-inch aluminum wheels, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a 360-degree exterior camera system, and Nissan's ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving mode. We'd spring for the SV Premium package too, which adds a panoramic sunroof, a power-operated rear liftgate, roof rails, and faux-leather upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is optional on all trims for an additional $1400.
