Consumer Guide’s 2019 Automotive Best Buy Winner – The Rogue is loaded with advanced technology and stands out as a comfortable long-distance companion.
With crossovers being such a hot commodity these days, standing out from a rapidly growing crowd is becoming increasingly more important. Aside from its imposing style the Nissan Rogue stakes its claim as one of the better highway cruisers. The insulation, isolation and aerodynamics produce one of the quietest rides around.
Factor in the Reserve interior package with its eye-catching two-tone finish and two of the most comfortable seats in the segment — the zero gravity design delivers excellent support, which reduces rider fatigue — and the Rogue is a very good long-distance companion.
The range-topping SL Platinum with ProPilot Assist features all of the gear demanded of a modern crossover. Along with the leather-wrapped power seats with memory, power moonroof, heated everything and an upgraded nine-speaker Bose sound system comes an Around View Monitor (360-degree camera) and a full suite of connected apps.
The infotainment system, with its seven-inch screen, supports the standard navigation system, camera and works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Rogue’s list of safety equipment is impressive. All models come with blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert. The top-of-the-line SL Platinum with ProPilot Assist includes intelligent cruise control, lane departure warning with lane-keep assist, forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection and rear intelligent emergency braking. The thrust of this lot is to keep the Rogue centred in the lane and to bring it to a halt if the driver takes no action to avoid a potential crunch. It is an advanced package that does bring peace of mind.
The back half of the Rogue has a ton of space. The rear seat accommodates two adults comfortably and there’s 1,112 litres of cargo space in the trunk alone. Folding the 60/40 seats down bumps the capacity to 1,982 L. A plus is Nissan’s Divide-N-Hide cargo management system. It can be configured to suit just about any eventuality (18 ways according to Nissan), so it eases the chore of packing a family’s worth of luggage or dividing space between groceries and gear.
The SL Platinum with ProPilot Assist arrives with a solid all-wheel-drive system that’s proficient at getting the power to the wheels that can put it to the best use. It splits the power evenly when pulling away and uses the brakes to direct the power to the wheel with the greatest grip, which dispenses with unwanted wheelspin. Once up to speed it drives the front wheels to improve fuel efficiency. The system does have some limited off-road ability thanks to the lock mode that maintains a 50/50-front/rear power split and hill descent control.
The system comes together to improve traction without driving the fuel consumption out of sight — when compared to the front-driver the all-wheel-drive model consumes just 0.5 L/100 km more gas. This is a small penalty given the ability it adds to the Rogue.
Rather than Rogue, Nissan could have named this redesigned SUV “Mr. Congeniality.” True, that’s not very macho, but the model stands out as an easy-to-drive, family-friendly vehicle. And it now ranks among the best small SUVs.
Nissan’s special sauce with the 2019 Rogue is its size. It’s perfect. The SUV is large enough to feel spacious inside and substantial on the road, but it’s also nicely compact, so it’s easy to park and it doesn’t feel like a barge around town. The Rogue’s ride quality is excellent, and it gives the SUV an overall relaxed gait, which most buyers in this segment will appreciate. Also, the Rogue’s cabin is quiet; even at highway speeds it keeps the sounds of the outside world outside.
