With the infant seat behind me, I couldn't scoot my seat back any farther, so plan accordingly.

While the 2011 Nissan Rogue has all the safety equipment that shoppers expect in a compact, small-family-oriented crossover, the Rogue's safety ratings haven't quite been at the top of the class.

The Rogue performs quite well in testing from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including top 'good' results in frontal, side, and rear impact—although it does score just 'acceptable' on the roof strength test, which is critical for rollover protection. Under the previous federal tests, which resulted in few three-star ratings and mostly four- and five-star ratings, the Rogue was rated four stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact.

That said, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and side and side-curtain airbags are all on the standard-features list.

And you might want to spring for the available rearview monitor; rearward visibility can be a bit challenging, given the Rogue's aggressively upward-swooping windowline and chunky rear pillar.

Conclusion

The 2011 Nissan Rogue includes all the right safety features, but crash-test results haven't been perfect enough for those most concerned with safety.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
