The long-loved Nissan Rogue has received a delightful redesign from the ground-up for 2021, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic about the results. Styling has become more attractive, interior tech is decidedly modern, performance is improved, and the ride and handling are more adept. Nissan is certainly starting this generation off on the right foot (or should we say, ahem, wheel).
But don’t just take our word for it. If you’d like to try out the 2021 Rogue for yourself in the Virginia Beach area, come on down to Banister Nissan! We can even bring it your location for you to try out remotely. If you’d like to learn more specifics about this model first, read on.
The first noticeable element of the ground-up redesign of the 2021 Nissan Rogue is its handsome appearance. The new boxier styling has resulted in a more truck-like appearance. This is one vehicle you don’t want to mess with.
The inside is also fully reworked, with cues borrowed from both the Altima and the recently redesigned Sentra. Throughout, users will find utilitarian touches such as the thoughtful storage cubbies, bi-level dashboard and squared-off shift knob. Not only do these elements improve practical usability, but they bestow a delightfully modern aura upon the interior.
An 8.0-inch touch screen adorns the dash, with a larger 9.0-inch variation available on higher trims. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, while various high-end features are available. The machine also makes a solid showing for safety, including favorite gizmos like:
Under the hood, the 2021 Nissan Rogue is powered by the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine as its previous generation. Horsepower, however, has been upped to 181. The engine is wedded to a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive an optional addition.
