They say it’s better to be late than never. 2022 Nissan Rogue launches a brand new engine, just over a year after redesigning everything else about Nissan’s compact SUV. This will be disappointing news for those who got a rogue last year, but terrible news for those considering 2022. And you must consider 2022. It’s much better driving than its rather terrifying predecessor, and the new 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder makes it even better. Yes, three cylinders. Don’t worry, this type of engine is rare, and even numbers (literally and figuratively) actually give it a charming little character.
The rest of the rug stands inside and out with its sleek design. The interior in particular is one of the segment’s best efforts, especially (and probably obviously) at the upper trim level, where padded and sewn simulated leather covers dash, doors and center consoles. You’ll also be better off if you have great infotainment technology, decent storage, and interior space that is a little less than the big boys in the class (Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V). In most cases, we think the disease is overwhelmed by them (mostly because it doesn’t offer a hybrid powertrain), but it’s completely competitive and worth watching.

What’s new for 2022?
Rogue has made very welcome improvements under the hood for 2022. The 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-three combines low and high ratios with an updated CVT to create better driving conditions.
What about rogue interior and car technology?
The best element of the disease is its interior, which is at the top of its class in both design and quality. Two-tone interior color combinations are offered, but even a full-black SV tester shows a knitting-like pattern on the Leathert upholstery material that makes things stand out nicely. Even the open holes of platinum “wood” are believable to the eye, if still forged. That top trim (pictured below) is decorated with contrast stitching on doors, dashes and seats. The latter is covered in semi-aniline leather and features Nissan’s incredibly comfortable “Zero Gravity” seat design on the front and back.
The Dash and Center consoles consist of a delightful combination of digital screen and physical controls. An 8-inch infotainment touchscreen is standard, but the top platinum trim gets a 9-inch screen. Standard with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto screens, but the 9-inch screen comes with wireless Apple CarPlay. The lower grades get an analog instrument panel with a 7-inch display in the center (no complaints), but the Platinum Trim comes with a full-digital 12.3-inch panel that is easy to read and moves quickly to different screens and menus via the steering wheel buttons. A large head-up display is attached to the full digital instrument panel. Other features of our choice include a panoramic moonroof, tri-zone climate control and a wireless phone charger.
How big of a villain?
Rugs measure better than other compact crossovers. It has one of the passenger-friendly rear seats in the segment, which measures with RAV4, CR-V, Tucson and Sportage. We noticed that there was plenty of room for rear baby car seats and a LATCH anchor in the middle position (as opposed to the last disease), but the anchor points weren’t big enough to accommodate our Greco car seat clips. As always, we recommend bringing your own car seat on a test drive.
Maximum cargo capacity (second row omitted) up to 74.1 cubic feet, a number that rarely follows the best class. The space behind the raised second row comes out at 31.6 cubic feet, which we thought was a very useful amount. Still, it may not fit as well as the Tucson, CR-V and RAV4. However, we tested a rogue (pictured left below) without the innovative and useful “divide-n-hide” cargo floor (bottom right). In addition to increasing the cargo volume to 36.5 cubic feet, it consists of two moving floorboards – keep them for a flat floor; Remove them for extra depth, or arrange them in a stacked structure to divide the cargo area into separate sections. A new milk gallon holder behind the wheel has been built into the cargo area floor, so now your gallon of milk, water or whatever will not destroy the rest of your groceries on the way back from the store.
What are the rogue fuel economy and performance glasses?
For 2022, the Rogue is only available with a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-three that produces 201 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. These figures give the disease one of the most powerful standard engines in the compact SUV segment as opposed to one of the weakest. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available, but each one still has a constantly changing transmission standard.
Fuel economy with front-wheel drive is 30 mpg CT, 37 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined (it falls at 29/36/32 with SL and Platinum trims). The All-Wheel-Drive Rog returns 28/35/31, with the 34 mpg Highway differing from the SL and Platinum.
Unfortunately, there are no rogue hybrids or plug-in hybrids.
What is a rogue to drive?
The disease has already greatly improved since the overhaul last year, and the new engine for 2022 is an ingredient that was very much missing from the recipe (we described the old engine as a “total bore”). A big surprise is that the engine actually sounds smoother than the four-cylinder from which it originated. Power delivery is also very smooth. Turbo spools quickly and gives you easy-to-use down-low torque, especially around town. Like many small turbo engines, though, it starts to lose steam when you accelerate loudly on the ramp when the revs increase. For CVT, it’s still not particularly impressive, but it works well. It is programmed to work like a conventional automatic transition and the ratio changes silky. Although it doesn’t react quickly, like when you ask for a kick-down for crossing or hitting an onramp.
Nissan tunes the disease for comfort and shows it. This crossover climbs admirably on bumps, highway snowfalls and potholes. It’s not luxurious, but it’s equal for the segment. And even though the engine noise is low, the sound of the wind at highway speeds is still annoying. Where the previous rogue was a remarkably poor driver, this new rogue is efficient and melts in the background without bothering or disturbing us. That said, the steering still has a zero feeling and the handling is mediocre in general. This is perfectly acceptable, but if you want to be employed as a driver, many competitors remain a good choice.

What are rogue safety ratings and driver support features?
The long list of standard 2022 disease safety equipment includes automatic emergency braking and frontal collision warning with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking (a rare feature), lane exit warning, blind-spot and rear cross traffic warning system, driver alert Reminder and automatic high beam. Many of these systems are not found in optional or competing crossovers. If you climb to the top of the base trim, you add Propilit Assist, a comprehensive driving assistant for the highway. It has adaptive cruise control and a capable lane-centering system that is more sophisticated than what is offered by competitors. Navi-Link comes with traffic sign recognition and propilot (using the navigation system to make the propilot usable at highway junctions and exits) as standard for maximum trim.
The Rogue received four out of five stars for overall accident protection from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It has four stars for front protection and five stars for side protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named it a Top Safety Pick +, the highest honor, for a fairly high rating in all relevant categories.
