Three of Japan's very own seasoned automotive players, Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V have gone toe-to-toe in the US since the dawn of this crossover frenzy. The 2020 Nissan Rogue has been trying for quite some time now, to answer the age-old question of the best crossover in the country, and come the year 2020, hopefully it turns that conviction into reality.

Rogue has been one of the top-selling crossovers in the US over the past few years. In 2018, it was the largest selling crossover till November until the Toyota RAV4 overtook it in the end. However, in whichever way you see fit, the sales number of the 2019 Nissan Rogue has been great and it's leading the race with close to 250,000 units sold till the end of August 2019.

Rogue-Nissan's best-selling car in the US to date

The reason for such promising sales of the Nissan Rogue is largely because of its excellent build quality, upscale and spacious interiors along with the humongous trust Nissan has built over the years. The infotainment system is updated and one of the best in the segment. The "Divide and Hide"cargo space along with the folding rear seats translates to an excellent utilitarian nature. The 2020 Nissan Rogue carries unchanged from last year, except for a few added driver-assistance features. Thus, Nissan looks to sell huge numbers of Rogue for this year as well.

2020 Nissan Rogue Price Analysis


The 2020 Nissan Rogue offers three trim levels in the US which are S, SV, and SL. Nissan also offers a choice between FWD and AWD with all the trim levels. The difference in price between the FWD and AWD is around $1500 for all trims. The only chunk in the armor is that there is just a single-engine on offer, unlike the ones the rivals have on offer, a 2.5L NA Inline-4, which in itself is potent enough for daily commuting.

All the above-mentioned trims have more than enough worth in themselves to be considered as standalone options. Each trim, including the Base trim, has its own merits for the price it is being offered at.

Which trim do we recommend?

We recommend the SL trim for $31,690 as it comes loaded with a wide array of features, mainly on the infotainment front, such as the Bose Premium Audio System with nine speakers which will greatly enhance the driving experience in the long run. Also, if you are one of those folks who want to push a car to its limits we suggest you opt for the AWD variant, for an extra $1,500, which is well worth the extra bucks.

How has the Rogue been priced for the last 5 years?

The prices of the S trim of the Nissan Rogue has been progressively increasing over the years, around $200 per year, over the period of the last 5 years. In 2016, the price of the base trim of the Rogue was $23,220 while in 2020 its price jumped up to $25,200, $1,870 more than the 2016 price. The rate of increase in price is nominal, considering the added list of features that go in every year.

The car market trend in the US has changed a lot from what it was a decade ago. People now prefer SUVs and Crossovers over sedans. Nissan has capitalized on this change with the Rogue. The Rogue was the largest selling Crossover in the US and sold 412,110 units all across the States. While doing so, it came extremely close to dethroning the Honda CR-V from the top spot. But lately, with the other manufacturers bringing in newly revamped models of their crossovers, it remains extremely difficult for Nissan to compete with the aged Rogue.

2020 Nissan Rogue vs the competition-sales comparison

If you have your eyes set for a pre-owned Nissan Rogue, we suggest you buy one from the 2017 generation. You will get one at 65% of the original price with around 80% of the car's life still left. Hence, you can drive the car for almost another 5 years before you need to sell it. Nissan cars are extremely reliable and need very little maintenance.

What is the cost of ownership for the Rogue?

The cost of ownership is a major factor while buying a car. It latently adds to the real price of the car over a period of time. Naturally, a crossover that sums up the lowest premium over the next 5 years, would be the ultimate choice for customers looking for in this segment. While calculating the real cost of ownership, different criterion like a Tax credit, insurance, maintenance, fuel cost, and deprecation are taken into account.

2020 VW Tiguan and the 2020 Honda CR-V are the only cars in the pack which have a turbocharged engine. When it comes to power, Tiguan churns out 184 horses at 4400rpm while Rogue's Inline 4 produces 170 horses at 6,000 rpm, which is by far the lowest power figures of the lot. Although, the surprisingly efficient XTronic CVT gives you an inspired driving experience and more than makes up for the loss in power.

To round up everything, 2020 Nissan Rogue is the crossover to buy if your budget is under $30k.
