Rear Door Alert comes standard on all 2019 Nissan Rogue models.
It’s a feature that is becoming an industry standard these days – Rear Door Alert. The 2019 Nissan Rogue gets a few updates, but the inclusion of rear door alert is one that applies across every trim level of the brand’s best-selling crossover.
Other additions include Automatic Rear Braking as well as rear sonar on SV and SL models. SV and SL models also get Nissan Safety Shield 360 as standard equipment. That system includes Automatic Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist in addition to the rear braking.
While most of the safety tech is only available on SV and above grades, the base 2019 Nissan Rogue S isn’t entirely devoid of driver assistance tech. Blind spot monitoring, Automatic Emergency Braking and High Beam Assist come standard there. a new Special Edition Package adds to the base model by including LED turn signals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and heated front seats. The Premium Package on SV models adds 18-inch wheels, ProPILOT Assist and an electronic parking brake.
Finally, top-spec SL models get ProPILOT Assist and 19-inch alloy wheels as part of the SL Premium Package.
Most models are more expensive, except the SL Hybrid
The 2019 Nissan Rogue S costs the same as before, but prepare to pay more on any other trim level. The SV trim will hit your wallet $200 harder, while the SL is $190 more expensive.
The Nissan Rogue Hybrid gets the biggest changes, as the SV model starts $580 higher than the 2018 model. However, Nissan dropped the price of the SL trim Hybrid, bringing it in $840 cheaper than the 2018 model. See a complete pricing breakdown below:
