The Rogue is Nissan’s best-selling vehicle, so the maker is giving it a major redesign for 2021. It’s so extensive that Nissan called it “one of the most comprehensive model redesigns in Nissan history.”
While there are some changes to the exterior, the significant updates begin with the interior. Drivers and passengers will enjoy a whole new feel in the surprisingly roomy cabin, for which designers drew inspiration from a Nissan concept car. The space is roomy and incredibly stylish.
Even getting in and out will be easier thanks to rear doors that open 90 degrees. This will also make loading the car and getting kids in and out much more convenient.
At the top of the 2021 Nissan Rogue trim levels is the 2021 Nissan Rogue Platinum. Its starting price of $36,000 makes it accessible yet affords the buyer many impressive updates, particularly when it comes to technology.
All the trim levels for the 2021 Rogue have exciting features, but the 2021 Nissan Rogue Platinum is the pinnacle of this lineup and that shows in the impressive tech and safety features such as:
- Keyless Start
- Keyless Entry
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Up to 4 USB Ports
- 8” Touchscreen for Infotainment
- Available 12.3” Digital Display
- ProPILOT Assist
The last on the list remains one of the most intriguing, even though it made its U.S. debut as an option in the 2018 Rogue after being offered in Japan since 2016. If you haven’t driven a new car for a few years, ProPILOT Assist may seem like something from the future—but it’s here today!
This driving assist feature helps make long rides easier and relieves some of the frustration of traffic that is constantly stop and go. A radar sensor and front-facing camera automatically maintains the distance that you have selected with the car ahead of you. It also helps to ensure your Nissan Rogue stays in the center of your lane.
If the vehicle in front of you slows or stops, ProPILOT Assist has your car do the same. When traffic starts moving, you’ll go back to your prior speed.
Is the Nissan ProPILOT Assist an autonomous system?
No, but it is an impressive Level 2 Driver Assistance system. It doesn’t turn your 2021 Nissan Rogue into a self-driving vehicle, but it does help drivers in many ways. It makes driving less stressful and safer—it can even bring the vehicle to a full stop if it detects something is amiss such as the driver’s hands not being on the wheel.
Safety has always been a top priority to Nissan, and the 2021 Nissan Rogue Platinum is no exception. It’s loaded with standard features to keep you safe on the road including:
- Rear Door Alert
- Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Active Lane Control
- Automatic High Beams
- Blind Spot Monitors
- Automatic Rear Braking
