2021 Nissan Rogue's crash test scores are seriously underwhelming

We expected better from Nissan's latest SUV...

1w ago

The all-new 2021 Nissan Rogue has been crash tested this month and the scores didn't meet the expectations we hoped for.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the 2021 Rogue just two out of five stars for the passenger-side crash test, a two-star decrease compared to its predecessor.

But it isn't all doom and gloom as the NHTSA still awarded the 2021 Rogue a four-star crash test rating overall as it did as expected in other areas. There is no answer as to why it did so badly with the passenger-side crash test, but we are certain Nissan will address this.

A Nissan representative said: "Nissan is committed to vehicle safety and is pleased with the 2021 Nissan Rogue's overall four-star NCAP safety rating. All 2021 Rogue vehicles fully comply with federal safety standards."

The likely reason for this two-star rating is to do with the front passenger restraint system which will likely undergone a few adjustments for US manufacturing. The NHTSA already plans to retest the Rogue in May this year. Hopefully by then Nissan has addressed this issue.
