2024 Nissan Rogue Look and Feel
How do the seats feel to sit in? Do storage compartments open smoothly and quietly?
Our team launched a hands-on review of the 2024 Nissan Rogue to answer questions about the overall “feel” of the vehicle.
The 2024 Nissan Rogue gets a facelift front and rear – Nissan’s “V-Motion” grille receives a thoroughly modern makeover, with front and rear fascias getting a far more sophisticated look. Walk around back and you’ll find redesigned inner tail lights, satin-finished exterior badges and fresh 18-inch alloy wheel designs. The Rogue is available in S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels, with Platinum models distinguished by gloss-black fenders and lower exterior and front fascia trim, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design.
Inside, interior finishes have been revised with better materials. Thankfully, its design remains a paragon of simplicity. Climate controls have unpretentious knobs, while the infotainment system has a volume knob and buttons for cycling up and down the radio dial.
The Rogue retains its accommodating interior, which features 31.6 cubic feet of cargo space and increases to 74.1 cubic feet with the second-row seat folded down.
Due to the insulated front side glass, the cabin generally proves quiet and the seats are comfortably supportive. The SV offers optional heated front seats, which are standard on the SL and Platinum. On the Platinum, heated rear seats are available, but ventilated seats are not.
2024 Nissan Rogue Performance
After getting a comprehensive look at how this model presents visually, and how each component works together to deliver an overall impression, our team tested the Rogue on a variety of road and traffic conditions.
The Rogue features a 1.5-liter three-cylinder variable compression turbocharged engine matched with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that produces 201 horsepower and 225 pound-feet of torque. It uses regular unleaded gasoline and can tow up to 1,500 pounds, with 150 pounds of tongue weight. Front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional.
S models are shod with 17-inch wheels, the SV grade has 18s, while SL and Platinum trims wear 19s.
The Rogue generates strong power once moving, although it’s not the fastest SUV. It does exhibit turbo lag upon initial acceleration, but it’s tolerable. Contrary to most of its contemporaries, the continuously variable automatic transmission behaves more like a typical automatic transmission. The normal “rubberbanding” that CVTs suffer from isn’t as prevalent here.
For the most part, the ride is smooth and comfortable, which is a pleasant difference from the numerous compact SUVs that paint an all-too-clear picture of our failing infrastructure. There’s a lack of excessive body movement over bumps, and cornering finds the Rogue’s body lean to be moderate. The Rogue, however, never lives up to its name, despite fast steering, a hint of road feel, and a well-controlled but compliant ride. The majority of mainstream consumers will be pleased with handling, but a driving aficionado may not be.
Features and Technology
Advanced driver assistance safety systems include standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, high beam assist and rear automatic braking. optional systems include blind spot intervention, traffic sign recognition, a 360-degree camera system, head-up display, and Nissan’s ProPilot steering assistance package.
But it’s the availability of integrated Google software on the 2024 Nissan Rogue SL and Platinum grades that’s the main benefit of waiting for the 2024 Nissan Rogue. There’s also a Wi-Fi hotspot with Google Assistant, Google Maps, and Google Play. You don’t have to have your smartphone paired, plugged in, or in the vehicle to use the software. In addition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard; Wireless Apple CarPlay is included on Rogue Platinum and in the SL. But which model you choose affects the infotainment screen size. The Rogue S and SV come fitted with an 8-inch touchscreen, while SL and Platinum trims come with a 12.3-inch unit. SLs also get a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
