The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.

By:

After Nissan made several driver assists standard and added some new packages for the previous model year, the 2020 Rogue carries over unchanged. However, every model does receive a small price increase and the hybrid powertrain has been discontinued.

Pros
Quiet and comfortable interior, fuel-efficient powertrains, capacious cargo space.

Cons
Far more show than go, dull to drive, obsolete infotainment with limited connectivity.

By:

No significant changes for 2020

PROS

Roomy cabin and cargo area

CONS
