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.

The 2020 Nissan Rogue Sport is a good value, but it’s light on performance.

Pros
Good safety tech
Low price
Pleasant styling

Cons
Far from sporty
Slow acceleration
Cramped back seat

By:

Nissan has elevated the styling of the 2020 Rogue Sport with a new front and rear design, LED daytime running lamps, and a redesigned grille and hood that contribute to a much more chiseled look. Nissan also has added two new colors to the Rogue Sport's palette: Nitro Lime Metallic and Monarch Orange Metallic. Additionally, the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assistance technologies that was previously offered on the SV and SL is now a standard feature on all trims. If you're looking to spice things up, Nissan also is offering a new 19-inch wheel design that takes its inspiration from its luxury cousin, the Infiniti QX50.

Pros
Sleek exterior design, efficient powertrain, great standard safety features.

Cons
Sluggish acceleration, coarse engine sounds, lower trims lack some commonly found features.
