2015 Nissan Rogue Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2015 Nissan Rogue was new.


Interior: 8.4

The 2015 Nissan Rogue’s interior features top-notch materials and pleasant styling, test drivers report. They say the Rogue’s front seats are comfortable, and they like the versatility of its sliding and reclining second row. The Rogue has one of the largest cargo holds in the class, and reviewers like its customizable cargo management system.

  • "Certainly, the Rogue will be appealing if you're interested in comfort and available space. Interior surfaces are made from high-quality materials that look and feel particularly upscale, especially on upper trim levels." -- Edmunds
  • "The 2015 Rogue's cabin is typically Nissan, with attractively illuminated instrumentation, quality materials, soft-touch surfaces and several infotainment and connectivity features." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "For instance, the Rogue's interior, besides being attractive and upscale in both design and execution, is packed to the brim with useful touches." -- Left Lane News
  • "Materials are also excellent. While the Rogue is no high-end luxury car, we think its cabin is an improvement over nearly all its rivals. There's an abundance of padded surfaces and nicely textured plastics, and panel gaps in the Rogue are noticeably smaller than gaps in rival models." -- AutoTrader (2014)


The 2015 Nissan Rogue seats five and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Leather seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats are available. The Rogue is one of the few compact SUVs that’s available with a third row, but critics agree that it’s not very spacious. Still, they think the sliding and reclining second row adds some flexibility, since the second row can be moved forward to provide more legroom for third-row passengers. Test drivers say the Rogue’s "zero gravity" front seats, which Nissan says are inspired by NASA, are comfortable and supportive, with plenty of head- and legroom. According to test drivers, the Rogue’s cabin is isolated from wind and road noise and remains comfortable over road imperfections.

  • The front seats - leather-clad in SL models - are supportive and comfortable. Front-seat legroom and headroom are good even for tall drivers, and rear-seat legroom has expanded over past models. Two-row Rogues can seat five passengers, while 3-row setups can seat seven. Nissan refers to the 3rd-row perch as ‘occasional seating,’ but we'd lean toward ‘never,’ at least for adults. It's extremely tight back there." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • When it comes time to use the Rogue as a people mover, the crossover offers space for seven passengers (a rare capability in this segment) thanks to an optional third row seat. Though best suited to children, the rearmost row can also accommodate adults for short journeys due to the flexible second row seats, which can slide forward up to nine inches to provide extra legroom for those behind." -- Left Lane News
  • "The second-row seats are split 40/20/40 for greater versatility and feature a full 9 inches of fore/aft travel, with reclining seatbacks for further adjustability and comfort. Although the cramped optional third-row seat is only for small children, that's true of any comparably sized crossover, and the third row gives the Rogue a competitive advantage over most direct rivals." -- Edmunds
  • "It is quiet inside, and the ride is comfortable over the varied surfaces on which we drove." -- Car and Driver (2014)

Interior Features

The 2015 Nissan Rogue’s standard features include Bluetooth, a USB port, a rearview camera and hands-free text messaging. Available features include a NissanConnect infotainment system with navigation and a 7.0-inch touch-screen display, satellite radio, push-button start, a six-speaker Bose stereo system, dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic moonroof, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and Nissan’s Around View monitor, which uses four cameras to give you a 360-degree view around the vehicle while parking.

Automotive writers are thrilled with the available Around View monitor, which they agree makes parking and reversing maneuvers significantly easier. Test drivers are also impressed with the 2015 Rogue’s easily accessible dashboard controls, which they say don’t distract drivers from the road. A few reviewers note that the Rogue’s infotainment system has physical buttons and knobs, which makes it easier to use than the touch-screen systems found in some competing SUVs.

  • "To take the difficulty out of parking maneuvers, the available ‘Around View’ camera system provides a 360-degree bird's-eye view of the Rogue's surroundings, while the optional smartphone-based NissanConnect Apps furnishes Stitcher and Pandora radio functionality, access to Yelp and TripAdvisor, gas prices and more." -- Left Lane News
  • "Compared with the Escape's overcomplicated MyFord Touch system, the Nissan's infotainment interface -- with real buttons and knobs, no less -- is refreshingly accessible and easy-to-use." -- Automobile Magazine (2014)
  • "Nissan's excellent AroundView Monitor is accessed here, too, and seriously, I cannot stress enough how awesome this system is. Once you've used AroundView to park, you'll never want to use anything else." -- Autoblog (2014)
  • "That interior is sensibly laid out, and the buttons and switches respond in the manner you'd expect, taking minimal eye time from the road. … We do love the Around View monitor that gives a bird's-eye view around the car when backing up." -- Car and Driver (2014)


The 2015 Rogue has 32 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in use and 70 cubic feet with them folded, which makes it one of the roomiest cargo holds in the class. Models with the optional third row have 9.4 cubic feet of space with all seats in use. Five-seat versions of the Rogue come with a Divide-N-Hide cargo management system that allows the space to be adjusted into 18 different configurations to keep contents hidden. Test drivers agree that the system is useful, and they find it more convenient than typical cargo nets and dividers that you get with many rivals.

  • "If you opt for two-row seating, you'll enjoy a useful cargo dividing system, which includes an adjustable rear cargo area with storage compartments, multilevel shelving capability and a claimed 18 different cargo-carrying configurations." -- Edmunds
  • "Securing odds and ends, including groceries, is always a challenge, and the Rogue's storage option answers the challenge with an ingenious system that can be configured to accommodate all sorts of small-to-medium cargo. Available on 5-passenger models, the system provides 18 possible variations including a fold-back passenger seat." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • “Five-seat models benefit from a ‘Divide-N-Hide’ storage system that combines an underfloor storage compartment with a removable cargo shelf for extra space and versatility." -- Left Lane News
  • "We're not sure how much owners will use it, but the Rogue has a unique Divide-N-Hide cargo system that lets drivers separate items in the cargo area. It's more substantial and practical than the nets and plastic dividers in rival models." -- AutoTrader (2014)
