The 2008 Nissan Rogue earns high marks from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for front and side crash tests and rollover ratings. The NHTSA gives the Rogue five stars in protecting drivers from harm in front crashes, and four stars for protecting passengers in head-on crashes. The Rogue earns five stars for its side-impact protection and a four-star rating for rollover resistance.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), an insurance industry-funded research group, has given the Rogue its “Top Safety Pick” award, for “Good” crash-test ratings in the front, side and rear tests.

Consumer Reports notes that the Rogue has a long list of standard safety equipment, including stability control, active head restraints, and side curtain airbags. Edmunds adds that the curtain airbags are full-length and that its anti-lock brakes include brake assist, which activates braking to a higher degree in panic stops. MSN Autos likes the brake pedal’s firmness and says the system “assure[s] steady stopping.”

Cars.com adds that tire pressure monitors are also standard, as well as side airbags that protect the torsos of front passengers.

Conclusion

The 2008 Nissan Rogue provides excellent passenger protection with plenty of safety equipment.

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.
