The revamped Rogue also has multiple benefits for individual drivers and couples. Nissan went all-out and provided a ton of excellent safety, infotainment and design features, especially when you consider the reasonable price-points on the new Rogues. The advanced driver aids are simple to use due to advanced intuitive technology. The exterior is classy and distinctive and exhibits a sense of power and control. Navigation-linked adaptive cruise control automatically reduces speed when approaching imminent curves. While the new engine includes a completely retuned transmission and has more power, the 2021 Rogue itself feels lighter and easier to drive than its predecessors. Ultimately the 2021 Nissan Rogue is competitive with the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V, making it one of the top SUVs on the market in 2021 overall.
