All the elements of the interior has been designed nicely to give an overall stylish appeal to the car. You can go for upgrades such as wood grain and brushed aluminum.

Technology & Safety

Some of the standard safety features include automatic high-beam headlights, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and lane departure warning.

You have plenty of ways to access the controls, including buttons, knobs and touch screen. Navigation system and Apple CarPlay is standard, while some of the key available features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, speed limit recognition, rearview camera and parking sensors.


Speaking of performance, the 2020 Nissan Rogue comes standard with a 170-HP 4-cylinder engine mated to a CVT. It fails to offer enough power and is slow to accelerate. The engine can also be noisy  when pushed harder.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW X1 offers a smooth ride, plenty of standard features and a comfortable cabin. Nissan Rogue doesn’t have it all, when it comes to overall features. It has a weak engine and subpar performance compared to BMW. Any shrewd car buyer would go for a brand like BMW, rather Nissan.
