Is the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid a Good Used SUV?

The 2019 Rogue Hybrid is not a very good used hybrid SUV. Acceleration is weak, and the transition from battery to gas power is choppy. Fuel efficiency – the main reason most people buy a hybrid – is merely average in this Rogue variant. Handling is unimpressive, and the SUV's brakes take some getting used to. While the cabin is upscale and roomy, infotainment functionality leaves a lot to be desired.

The Rogue Hybrid is notable among hybrid and electric SUVs for its excellent safety score, which is partially driven by a wealth of standard driver assistance technology.

Which Used Nissan Rogue Hybrid Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid comes in two trims: SV and SL. The standard hybrid powertrain consists of a four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, and a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard, and all-wheel drive (AWD) is available.

Most of the features available in this SUV come standard in the base trim. That includes a well-equipped infotainment system and a long list of driver assistance features. The main reason to pick the SL is if you want a few features that are exclusive to this model, such as leather seats and automatic high-beam headlights.

  • Nissan Rogue Hybrid SV: Standard features in the Rogue Hybrid SV include cloth upholstery, heated front seats, a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a four-way manually adjustable passenger seat, and a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a six-speaker stereo. Also standard are a leather-wrapped steering wheel, alloy wheels, a hands-free power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and remote start. The Rogue Hybrid's standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, a rear door alert, and rear parking sensors. The Rogue Hybrid SV is available with a moonroof, a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, navigation, a nine-speaker Bose stereo, and driver's seat memory settings.
  • Nissan Rogue Hybrid SL: The Rogue Hybrid SL adds leather upholstery, navigation, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, LED headlights, and automatic high-beam headlights. The moonroof and nine-speaker Bose stereo are available.

What Does Nissan's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Nissan offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each Nissan CPO vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like rental car reimbursement, a three-month SiriusXM satellite radio trial subscription, a Security+Plus Extended protection plan, towing, and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

Nissan’s CPO program is about average for an affordable auto manufacturer, according to our research. Mazda, Honda, and Chevrolet all have more robust programs.

2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid or 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid?

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid is a much better vehicle than the Rogue Hybrid. It secures a top spot among hybrid and electric SUVs thanks to its great fuel economy and solid predicted reliability rating. The RAV4 Hybrid gets 41 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, much better than the Rogue Hybrid's 33/35 mpg. The Toyota also has around 10 more cubic feet of cargo space and easy-to-use tech features, as well as brisk, smooth acceleration. The only notable advantage the Rogue Hybrid has is a better safety score, but that's not enough to keep us from easily recommending the RAV4 instead.

Which Is Better: 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid or 2019 Nissan Rogue?

The 2019 Nissan Rogue shares a lot of similarities – good and bad – with its hybrid variant. This includes an anemic engine, a quality interior, comparable features, and decent predicted reliability. The standard Rogue has a lot more cargo space, while the hybrid boasts a higher safety score and better fuel economy. Driving a Rogue Hybrid could save you around $200 per year in fuel costs, but you'll likely pay thousands of dollars more to buy a used one compared to a regular Rogue. If you can eat that initial bump for savings in the future, buy the hybrid. For more space, buy the regular Rogue.

2019 Rogue Hybrid Performance

How Does the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid Drive?

A soft suspension soaks up most pavement imperfections and delivers an overall comfortable ride. The Nissan Rogue Hybrid handles competently, but it's far from the most athletic crossover in the class. This vehicle has weak acceleration from a stop, and it continues to feel underpowered as you get up to higher speeds.

The transition from initial electric propulsion to gas power is fairly unrefined. When you try to come to a stop, you'll likely notice a grabby or mushy feel to the regenerative braking system.

  • Powertrain: 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and electric motor with a combined 176 horsepower
  • Drivetrain: standard front-wheel drive; available all-wheel drive
  • Transmission: continuously variable automatic (CVT)
Does the 2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid Get Good Gas Mileage?

The 2019 Rogue Hybrid gets about average fuel economy for its class. With FWD, it returns an EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. AWD models get 31 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.

The 2019 Rogue Hybrid has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the rear outboard seats and an upper tether for the rear middle seat.

All of the anchors on the outboard seats are easy to access and clearly marked. However, the tether anchor for the middle seat is hard to find and could be confused for other hardware.

2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid Features

Nissan's infotainment system can be a bit convoluted. Some functions can be controlled through a myriad of hard buttons flanking the touch screen, but doing so requires pressing them multiple times. Other controls are limited to the touch screen. It’ll probably require some practice to learn the ins and outs of this system.

  • Standard infotainment features: a 7-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, satellite radio, and a six-speaker stereo
  • Available infotainment features: navigation and a nine-speaker Bose stereo
