The Nissan Rogue is a top-seller model for Nissan thanks to its sleek design, sporty performance, well-equipped interior, and advanced technologies. Drivers and critics alike have fallen in love with the small SUV. Here is a closer look at a few of the awards the Nissan Rogue has earned.
2021 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards
In the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards, the 2021 Nissan Rogue was named the Most Satisfying Mid-Size Crossover SUV. This is the second time the Rogue took home this honor. The Rogue won favor with the judges thanks to its innovative safety technologies including the ProPILOT Assist system, long list of standard features, and bevy of available amenities.
“Instead of betting on individual attributes to pull in satisfied buyers, the Rogue delivers a wide range of satisfying features from its roomy cabin and cavernous cargo area, to sharp looks, available all wheel drive, and standard safety tech,” according to the VSA judges.
PARENTS Best Family Cars 2021
Families on the go prioritize safety, comfort, and space for their drives, and the 2021 Nissan Rogue checks all the boxes. It earned PARENTS Magazine’s Best Redesign award in the pub’s review of the Best Family Cars of 2021.
“The Rogue has upped its game, increasing the horsepower of its engine and its gas mileage. The handling also improved over the previous Gen thanks to an updated platform and chassis,” according to Karen Cicero, writer for Parents.com.
The pub’s judges were particularly impressed with the SUV’s ability to open its rear doors to almost 90 degrees, calling it a “wow factor.” This feature is exceptionally useful for installing car seats or when traveling with extended family like grandparents.

Nissan continues to raise the bar on safety technologies and features, and it shows in the Rogue.

To earn the highest rating, the Rogue scored “Good” in six tests that evaluate how the SUV would perform in a crash.
