  • The 2019 Nissan Rogue is an unlikely springboard for some of the automaker’s most advanced technology on the road to self-driving cars. This five-seat crossover ranges from relatively basic, inexpensive family transportation to a high-tech showcase.
    We’ve rated the Rogue 6.5 out of 10 for its hefty dose of standard and optional safety and high-tech features, as well as its good interior packaging.

    As a crossover, the Rogue is about average in terms of its driving dynamics, fuel economy, and overall feel. But its score is elevated thanks in part to a massive tech upgrade this year. The Rogue is available in S, SV, and SL trim levels, the latter of which can be newly upgraded with the automaker’s ProPilot Assist technology that can automatically accelerate, brake, and maintain the crossover’s distance from other vehicles with no driver intervention in certain situations.
    That’s not to say that the rest of the 2019 Rogue lineup was left out this year. An updated infotainment system includes Apple Car Play and Android Auto at every Rogue price point, a power liftgate operated by the kick of a foot under the rear bumper is standard on SV and SL trim levels, and there are two new paint colors.
    Additionally, the previously optional third row that expanded the Rogue’s seating capacity to seven has been dropped. For 2019, all Rogues are five-sweaters, and that’s just fine with us since the third row was exceptionally confining.
    The Rogue Hybrid returns 2019 with fuel economy figures as much as 6 mpg higher than the standard version, although it's limited mostly to coastal and Rocky Mountain markets.
