Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2021 Nissan Rogue has a score of 82, implying a 0.039% chance of driver death (3.5% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2021 Nissan Rogue has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0391% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.463%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0391% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.463% chance of being injured.

Nissan's Safety Shield 360 active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2021 Nissan Rogue: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.

Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Nissan Rogue. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
