2013 Nissan Rogue Safety

8.0
Safety

The 2013 Nissan Rogue ranks as a reasonably safe family vehicle, although it falls short of top ratings in a field with plenty of high achievers.

In nearly all crash tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Rogue has earned a top 'good' score; although it earns just 'acceptable' in the roof-crush test—keeping it from the Top Safety Pick accolade.

It's also almost but not quite in the federal government's top echelon. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the Rogue a four-star overall rating, including a top five-star rating for side impact.

The Rogue has decent—but not great—safety, though its available Around View Monitor is good for busy moms.

One standout safety feature in the Rogue is the Around View Monitor (included in the Special Edition Package and SL), which casts a wide-angle camera view outward, in close proximity behind; it may prove especially useful when backing up with children and pets nearby. Otherwise, with the chunky rear pillar and styled window lines, outward visibility can be a bit challenging.
