2021 Nissan Rogue Poor Crash Test Results By NHTSA

Author: |

The latest generation of Nissan Rogue (know as the X-Trail in non-North American markets) recently launched and impressed many drivers due to its comfort and technologies. But as it turned out there are some issues with its safety as NHTSA of America recently tested Rouge in a crash test. The 2021 Nissan Rouge only managed to get four starts on front overall and a two-star on the front pedestrian crash test is not good for such a vehicle.

NHTSA also declared that only cars built before January 28, 2021, at Nissan’s Kyushu, Japan, facility are facing this low safety. Nissan also made some changes to Rogue’s build process in Nissan’s Smyrna, Tennessee, factory.

Nissan also said:

Nissan applied an update to the front passenger restraint system on all 2021 Rogue vehicles assembled at Nissan’s Smyrna, Tennessee, plant, and all vehicles produced after January 28 at the Kyushu plant, Therefore, the two-star front-passenger safety rating only applies to the vehicles produced at the Kyushu plant prior to January 28. The front-passenger safety systems in the vehicles that received the update have yet to be tested by NHTSA
the statement added. “An additional test of the 2021 Rogue is scheduled with results expected in May.”

While the Rouge showed a very poor rating for the front passenger but its ratings in side-impact crash situations and rollover testing could help this crossover to get an overall four out of five stars from NHTSA. NHTSA also hasn't tested active safety systems like ProPilot yet.
