Tustin CA - 2021 Nissan Rogue's Overview

Exterior - 2021 Nissan Rogue

One of the most noticeable changes when it comes to this 2021 Nissan Rogue review is the new exterior. The new Rogue has a much boxier design that boasts hard angles, and this makes the vehicle look much more like a truck-based SUV—despite it still being car-based. The wheelbase is similar in size to the previous generation, but overall length is less by 1.5 inches, and the vehicle is a bit lower to the ground. The cargo bed and rear liftgate have been reconfigured a tad in order to make access easier. A powered, motion-activated liftgate will once again be included with the second-tier trim and up.

Interior - 2021 Nissan Rogue in Tustin

The new 2021 Nissan Rogue interior is similar to the last generation in some ways. It still has two rows, provides seating for five and offers nearly 40 cubic feet of storage space behind the second row. Aesthetically and functionally, however, the design is quite different. While the interior is again two-toned, the contrast is much more pronounced. The dashboard has also been completely redesigned. It now features a bi-level configuration that allows the landscape-oriented touch-display to sit above the dash. This makes viewing text messages and data from safety features while driving much easier.
