2023 Nissan Rogue Interior Review

2023 Rogue Interior:

Like the latest Nissan Sentra, the Rogue takes a clear step upmarket with a plusher and much more stylish cabin than its predecessor. It goes deeper than just the choice of materials and high-tech features, such as the expansive head-up display, though. Less wind noise filtering into the cabin is no accident, as Nissan has worked on making the interior of the Rogue as quiet as possible.

Acoustic glass in the windshield, a thicker dash insulator, and a multi-link rear suspension all work together to produce a pleasantly quiet ride. Nissan’s excellent and supportive Zero Gravity seats stand out as a highlight in the roomy cabin, which is equipped with standard gear like cruise control, remote keyless entry, & rear parking sensors. All models come with safety equipment like forward collision warning, lane departure warning, & blind-spot monitoring.

Seating and Interior Space:

The Nissan Rogue seats a total of five occupants across two rows. Passenger space is excellent in front and sound at the back, and with the front seat set for a tall driver, there was still plenty of knee room for that driver in the back as well. Despite the latest Rogue being shorter than its predecessor, rear legroom has increased by 0.6 inches. It must be said, though, that there is even more rear-seat legroom in competitors like the new Honda CR-V.

All models besides the entry-level S offer a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and all feature a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, which helps to find an optimal driving position. The second-row seats can also slide and recline. Ingress and egress pose no problems, aided by the rear doors, which open to almost ninety-nine degrees. Conveniently, a child seat can be installed in all three rear seating positions.

Interior Colors and Materials:

The range starts with premium cloth seats for the S and SV, with leatherette being an option on the SV. The SL and Platinum both feature leather-upholstered seats, while the latter trim enjoys classy quilted stitching and soft semi-aniline leather. The top two boundaries receive a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Interior color choices include Charcoal, Gray, and Tan, with our test unit’s dark color scheme relieved by white stitching on the door panels, dashboard, and center console lid. Pleasingly, there are no large areas covered in shiny Piano Black plastic, which does little more than attract fingerprints and scratches.

2023 Rogue Trunk and Cargo Space:

The Nissan Rogue offers a generous cargo area measuring 31.6 cubic feet in the S and SV and 36.5 cubes in the SL and Platinum, which are equipped with the Divide-N-Hide system. This system provides hidden storage for essential items.

The square-shaped cargo area can easily swallow a few larger suitcases and additionally comes with a 12-volt outlet and four floor-mounted tie-down hooks. A power liftgate is optional on the SV, while the top two trims feature a motion-activated liftgate as standard. On all boundaries, folding the second row of seats unveils 74.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

The interior storage space is excellent, with large door pockets to stash gear or drinks and improved upper and lower console storage areas. The butterfly-style opening center storage is functional, too, as are the four cupholders. Our favorite small detail is improved storage behind the wheel arch in the trunk, designed perfectly to hold a quart of milk.

2023 Rogue Infotainment and Features:


Starting with the S, the Nissan Rogue comes equipped with remote keyless entry, cruise control, manual air conditioning with ventilation outlets at the back, rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian & cyclist detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic braking, and a rearview camera.

Higher up in the range, the Rogue gets a surround-view monitor with additional images on the center display, improving driver visibility, push-button ignition, dual- or tri-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a head-up display, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, front/rear heated seats, and power-adjustable front seats. A power panoramic moonroof is standard on the top two trims and optional on the SV.


The NissanConnect infotainment system works well. An eight-inch touchscreen display is standard for the infotainment screen, while a floating nine-inch touchscreen display, a customizable 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster, and a 10.8-inch head-up display are standard on the top Platinum trim. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are common, and on the new top Platinum trim, CarPlay is wireless.

We drove a model that was generously optioned out, and the displays are crisp and clear, while the infotainment system is logical and intuitive to work through. We didn’t try out the Nissan Concierge Personal Assistant service that comes complimentary for the first six months on all trim levels. Every version comes with Bluetooth connectivity, Siri Eyes Free, voice recognition, SiriusXM radio (with the SiriusXM subscription sold separately), and two USB ports in front.

A further two charging USB ports are fitted to the rear of the top three trims. The S gets a four-speaker sound system, the SV and SL feature a six-speaker design, and the Platinum has a 10-speaker Bose premium sound system. Only the Platinum has navigation and Amazon Alexa built-in fitted as standard. Amazon Alexa is also part of the SL Premium Package.
