2012 Nissan Rogue: "good" for all tests except "acceptable" in roof crush
IIHS

Four stars overall
NHTSA

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

The Nissan Rogue performs well in crash tests at the federal and industry level, though it falls just shy of top honors.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Rogue a grade of "good" for nearly all its critical tests. However, in the insurance-industry group's roof-crush test, the Rogue receives an "acceptable" rating--and that's enough to keep it from earning a Top Safety Pick designation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the Rogue an overall rating of four stars, with a five-star result for side-impact protection.

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

You may want to pay for the available rearview monitor, or opt for the Special Edition, which includes it for free. The Rogue's rearward visibility can be a bit challenging, given its sharply styled windows and chunky rear pillar.

Conclusion

Crash-test results are good, but not great, in the 2012 Rogue.

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.
