2020 Nissan Rogue Review
You’ve probably noticed the multitude of crossovers out on the roads of Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton. Over the years, the segment has become quite popular for its adaptability, fuel efficiency, and storage space. It’s hard to best a vehicle that offers features similar to a full-size SUV, and has generally better gas mileage and enough off-roading capabilities to please the light adventurer.
With the release of so many crossovers this year, we at Nissan 24 thought to write this 2020 Nissan Rogue review to help drivers make an informed decision on their next vehicle. Continue reading to get a complete rundown on the new Rogue!
Nissan made sure to equip the 2020 Rogue with a powerful and versatile engine. We’ll spare no time getting to the good stuff on this crossover. It has an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway/29 combined MPG.1 This means that you can likely tackle that busy commute to and from work as well as run those post-work errands on a single tank.
Now that we’ve discussed MPG, let’s jump into the Nissan Rogue model’s engine specs. Under the hood you’ll find a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine capable of generating up to 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. One of the reasons that the new Rogue runs so efficiently can be attributed to its smaller engine displacement. Another is a result of the Nissan Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission).
While regular transmissions have fixed gears and accompanying ratios, CVTs operate using two pulleys and a belt between. That design allows the transmission to optimize “gear ratios” for different traffic patterns and road conditions.
Take a seat in the cockpit and you won’t want to get back up. Well, at least we didn’t want to leave. Located directly behind the steering wheel is an Advanced Drive-Assist® Display. Here’s where all your driving metrics will pop up, such as navigation prompts and service warnings. Incoming calls and texts will also pass through this display to keep you focused on the road ahead.
If you turn to the center of the dashboard in the 2020 Nissan Rogue, you’ll see a NissanConnect® 7-inch touchscreen display. Every model comes standardly integrated with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so hooking up your smartphone should be a breeze. You’ll have access to the Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System, too, where you can text and call without diverting your attention.
Passenger & Cargo Room
You can count on the Nissan Rogue to easily accommodate up to five people with plenty of space left over.
To give you an idea of the Rogue model’s interior, the total passenger volume measures in at 105.8 cubic feet while standard cargo room comes in at 39.3 cubic feet. This will grow to a max of 70 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down, which should be more than enough room to load up all your luggage or camping gear.
As for headroom, the first row has 41.6 inches and the second row has 38.5 inches. Legroom is ample, too—those in the front have 43 inches while those in the back seat get 37.9 inches of legroom. There’s a good amount of shoulder room, measuring in at 56.6 inches in the first row and 55.9 inches in the rear row.
