The safety story is quite good regarding the Rogue. The federal government gave it four stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact protection, while it's a top performer in insurance industry tests, with the IIHS results including 'good' scores in all categories and the Top Safety Pick designation.
Electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and side and side-curtain airbags are all on the standard-features list. Edmunds adds that the curtain airbags are full-length and 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.”
Edmunds observes that the Rogue's styling impairs rearward visibility. There's no rear camera system available.
