Nissan's aspirations for the Rogue are bold, and that's immediately reflected in the visual design. Nissan's signature floating roof and the latest version of the V-Motion grille bring sophistication to an angular, busy design. The new headlights and "U-shape" bodyside highlights compliment the new V-motion grille to create a heavily stylized and instantly recognizable from the front. Unique signature LED taillights at the rear and a distinctive "U Shaped" body style complete the aesthetic transformation. Base models ride on 17-inch alloy wheels, but these increase to 18- and 19-inch items higher in the range. LED headlights and rear privacy glass are standard, while available features include a power panoramic moonroof and a motion-activated liftgate. New "3D" tire deflectors complement an air curtain system while an active grille shutter helps control airflow into the engine compartment.
For the SV, a Midnight Edition Package can be specified. This brings with it many black exterior elements like the wheels, V-motion grille, mirror caps, and fascia inserts.
Nissan bucks the trend of a new model being bigger than the one it replaces. The new Rogue is 1.5 inches shorter and 0.2 inches lower than its predecessor. Key dimensions are a length of 183 inches - concealing a 106.5-inch wheelbase - a width of 72.4 inches, and a height of 66.5 inches. The Rogue crossover has a minimum ground clearance of 8.2 inches. In terms of curb weight, the lightest Rogue is the base S in FWD guise at 3,457 pounds, while the heaviest version is the Platinum equipped with AWD which weighs 3,713 lbs.

The base Nissan Rogue comes in a choice of five colors. These are Super Black, Gun Metallic, Glacier White, Caspian Blue Metallic, and Scarlet Ember Tintcoat. Only the Scarlet costs extra at $395. Higher up in the lineup, you can also choose from Champagne Silver Metallic, Brilliant Silver Metallic, Pearl White TriCoat ($395), and Boulder Gray Pearl ($395). A range of two-tone colors which pairs a Super Black roof with some of the aforementioned colors will cost $350 or $745. These two-tone combinations look good, and the two-tone Sunset Drift ChromaFlair with Super Black is one of the more exciting options that younger buyers should find favor with.
