5 Ways The 2021 Nissan Rogue Prioritizes Safety

The brand new 2021 Nissan Rogue has arrived, and so far, it’s lived up to the hype. Nissan completely overhauled the 2021 Rogue and left us with the crossover of our dreams. There is lots to say about the 2021 Nissan Rogue, like the high-quality interior, spacious cargo volume, and innovative technology everywhere you turn, but we want to focus on what makes the 2021 Rogue really shine – safety features. Safety is important to every driver, and the full range of modern safety technologies shouldn’t be locked away behind a high price tag. Nissan is working to change the industry standard and make the most effective safety features available to all. Here are the five ways we believe the 2021 Nissan Rogue keeps safety a priority for every driver.

#1 – High-Quality Safety Features Are Standard

The safety features we’re about to list aren’t revolutionary or brand new to vehicles – but they are now standard with any 2021 Rogue you purchase. This is a great development because it’s becoming the norm for all affordable, family vehicles to be equipped with potentially life-saving safety features. These six standard features are known as the Nissan Safety Shield 360.

The Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection measures your speed and distance to the object in front of you to send a warning or even automatically apply the brakes if you are approaching too rapidly. Rear Automatic Braking detects objects behind you as you reverse and will put on the brakes if you do not stop in time. A blind-spot notification will alert you if the Rogue detects a vehicle in your blind spot. Rear Cross Traffic Alert will survey around the rear of your vehicle and give you a heads up if a car approaches as you reverse.

The Lane Departure Warning gives you a slight buzz on the steering wheel when it senses you are drifting from your lane. Finally, the High Beam Assist will turn off the bright lights when it detects a vehicle coming your way. All of the features in the Nissan Safety Shield 360 put the 2021 Rogue among the best in its class for offering the most standard safety features. This is only the beginning as Nissan offers even more technology features to increase the safety of the 2021 Rogue.

#2 – More Advanced Safety Features For Every Detail

The list of safety features Nissan provides as standard in the 2021 Rogue is pretty abundant. Going a step further, there are several advanced safety features that take care of details that you may not think about. For starters, the Rogue is equipped with an advanced ten airbag system that literally has you and your passengers protected from the side, front, back, and top. Zone Body Construction adds an extra layer of protection by absorbing the impact and pushing it away from passengers.

A revolutionary advanced safety feature the 2021 Nissan Rogue offers is the Snug Kids Child Safety Seat Fit Guide that helps parents select the right seat for their younger passengers and fit it perfectly and safely into the Rogue. Finally, the Easy-Fill Tire Alert makes it easier to fill up your tires. Usually, it’s a guessing game how much air you should add, and at times you might be unsure if the air pumps are accurate. This feature on the 2021 Rogue honks the horn once you reach the correct fill level of air pressure in your tire. These safety features guide the way to an advanced system that will assist you in your daily driving activities.

#3 – Your Ideal Co-Pilot is Always With You

Just like the name suggests, ProPILOT Assist works like a co-pilot for your normal driving activities. It’s available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trims of the 2021 Rogue and is quite impressive. ProPILOT Assist uses a 3D high-definition mapping system to look ahead on the road and help you adjust to upcoming road conditions. When the speed limit changes, you can expect ProPILOT Assist to automatically adjust your speed to stay within the safe speed limit. Same with the inevitable traffic jam. This feature can help you navigate highways and stay in your lane. While the ProPILOT Assist doesn’t replace your own eyes and ears, it certainly can help you navigate the ever-changing road challenges.

#4 – Intelligent Driving Features That Help Every Day

We’ve all seen the most technologically advanced features that pretty much drive the car for you. While these are fun to look at and discuss, this doesn’t exactly help when you’re running late and have three places to be at once. Enter Nissan Intelligent Driving. These safety and assist features are innovative, safe, and, most of all, useful.

The Intelligent Around View Monitor literally gives you a 360 degree, birds-eye view of your vehicle that makes parallel parking and other tight parking spots simple. A collision warning will intelligently watch two cars ahead of you and alert you if it detects an immediate slow down ahead. Lane and blind-spot interventions will keep you in your lane if you’re drifting or it detects a vehicle in your blind spot. Alerts are set in the front, side, and rear of the vehicle to notify you if you’re nearing too close to an object.

The 2021 Rogue even learns how you are as a driver and can guide you based on your habits. The Intelligent Driver Alertness feature will measure your steering and driving patterns and will alert you if it thinks you are getting too drowsy. Lastly, Nissan’s Intelligent Driving offers a traffic sign recognition that will keep you up to date on signs like the speed limit as you travel.

#5 – Life-Saving Notification Anywhere You Are

Staying connected is everyone’s goal when they are on the road or when their loved one is driving their Rogue. The 2021 Nissan Rogue is equipped with all kinds of features that keep you connected in every way, but particularly in the area of safety. For instance, if your airbags deploy in an accident, the system automatically calls for help. You can also call for help yourself with just the push of a button.

Entrusting anyone to drive your Rogue, especially your child, can be nerve-racking. You, as the vehicle owner, can set a boundary, curfew, and speed limit for the 2021 Rogue and receive a notification when whoever is driving the Rogue is breaking those boundaries and limits. This can be especially comforting for a parent to receive these alerts when they are away from the vehicle.

When looking for a new vehicle, it’s easy to get caught up in the design, fancy sound system, or how many passengers it can seat, but the safety features are among the most important qualities of a new vehicle. The 2021 Nissan Rogue abundantly delivers in the safety and driver-assist categories. Most notably is the inclusion of numerous safety features that come standard in every 2021 Nissan Rogue. Beyond that, Nissan has thought of every detail and gives you assistance or alerts to ensure that every mile is as safe as possible. In our minds, these reasons solidify the 2021 Nissan Rogue as one of the most equipped crossovers for safety.
