SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Four stars, frontal impact; five stars, side impact
Good,' frontal, side, and rear tests; Top Safety Pick
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.
The 2010 Nissan Rogue has good—though not perfect—crash test ratings and all the expected features; but visibility is one nit to pick.
