Although the word "rogue" summons images of a reckless, swashbuckling character (Bronn from Game of Thrones, perhaps?), the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid isn't that kind of car. Being a small crossover SUV — and a fairly innocuous-looking one at that — the Rogue is about as mainstream as it gets.
On the upside, it offers all the hallmarks of what buyers expect of a small crossover, including excellent comfort, top-notch safety scores, and spacious room for people and cargo. Seventy cubic feet of cargo space helps make the Rogue one of the more versatile small SUVs on the market, while upscale cabin materials give it a classier feel than its price might suggest.
The main disappointment with the Rogue is its lackluster performance. Its modestly powered four-cylinder engine and sluggish continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will have you slow on the draw when accelerating from a stop. You do get high fuel economy estimates with the Hybrid — up to 34 mpg in combined driving, according to the EPA — but in our real-world testing of the Hybrid we found those numbers difficult to achieve.
In total, however, the Rogue's positive traits win out. It's worth considering if you're searching for a comfortable and safe small SUV.
Notably, we picked the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid as one of Edmunds' Best Gas Mileage SUVs for this year.
2019 Nissan Rogue models
The 2019 Nissan Rogue is a small crossover SUV available in three trim levels: S, SV and SL. The smaller Rogue Sport model is reviewed separately. A Rogue Hybrid is also available.
Most Rogues come standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (170 horsepower, 175 pound-feet of torque) paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is available as an option. The Rogue Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor (176 hp combined output) and either front- or all-wheel drive. It's available only in SV and SL trims.
Standard features on S trims include 17-inch steel wheels, 40/20/40-split folding rear seats that also slide and recline, a rearview camera, a 7-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, dual USB inputs, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and a four-speaker CD player with satellite radio. Safety features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist.
The SV trim adds 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, a power liftgate, heated side mirrors, keyless entry, push-button ignition, rear privacy glass, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a six-speaker audio system. Additional driver safety aids include rear parking sensors and reverse automatic braking.
Several of these features are also available for the S trim level via the optional Special Edition package.
The top-trim SL includes 19-inch wheels, foglights, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, a surround-view camera system, an integrated navigation system, NissanConnect emergency and convenience services, and a nine-speaker Bose audio system. The SL also comes with ProPilot Assist, a combination of semi-automated driving features that include stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, which can bring the car to a complete stop and start again, and steering assist, which keeps the car centered in its lane.
Several of the SL's features, including ProPilot Assist, are available on the SV. Options for the SL include a panoramic sunroof (also available for the SV) and LED headlights, while the Platinum Reserve Interior package adds quilted tan leather upholstery.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Nissan Rogue Hybrid SL (2.0L inline-4 hybrid | CVT automatic | AWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, Nissan has revised the Rogue, fitting it with expanded driver assist and infotainment technology. Our findings remain broadly applicable to today's Rogue, however.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Nissan Rogue?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
