The new Nissan Rogue can get you to those hard-to-reach trails, but the crossover will need some help carrying bikes there. We’ve found some of the best bike racks to outfit your Rogue with based on reviews from
What’s good about the Nissan Rogue?
Edmunds, the new cargo area in the Nissan Rogue gives it quite a bit of storage. The higher SL and Platinum trim levels come with a two-tiered compartment, named Divide-N-Hide. With the seats folded down and the compartment accessible, the Rogue offers 74.1 cubic feet of space, one of the largest amounts offered in its class.
The Rogue has firm, responsive handling and is quite durable, so it can hold up on
bumpy roads. The bike racks on this list should be able to do the same—a good bike rack is affordable, durable, and easy to use. The Rogue doesn’t come with a hitch, but there are rack options that don’t need it, and installing a hitch on the Rogue can be less than $200.
Allen Sports MT-1
Beast Auto ranked the ultra-compact Allen Sports MT-1 the best rack overall for the Nissan Rogue. One factor that makes this rack more accessible and popular is that it isn’t hitch or roof-mounted. This means it can be attached to any car.
The carrying capacity is up to 35 pounds, which is less than some hitch-mounted racks, but it’s easy to store and install. The rack also has a steel coating on the exterior that helps prevent rust and a reflector for extra safety.
KAC Overdrive Sports K2
The KAC Overdrive K2 only works on cars with trailer hitches and can hold two bikes. The rack’s low center of gravity gives it good stability and makes it easy to mount. The K2 uses a different strategy for holding the bikes, supporting them mainly from their
wheelsrather than their frame. This helps prevent wobbling and secures the bikes more firmly.
The rack can be tilted out of the way so you can open the trunk of the car. You can fold up the sides when you’re not using the rack, and it's equipped with a reflector as well. The K2 offers a 60-pound maximum capacity per bike.
Vibrelli is an excellent option for heavier or thick-tired bikes. The hitch-mounted style lets it hold two bikes weighing 65 pounds each, and there’s a universal wheel cradle that can fit five-inch-wide bike tires.
You don’t have to lift heavy bikes all the way off the ground to load them onto the rack. The V70 also has equipment like ratchet straps to restrict the bike’s movement and prevent damage.
Outdoor adventures are a great way to see nature, but you’ll want to make sure you have adequate car insurance to keep your vehicle protected.
