Have you ever heard of a “driveway moment”? It’s when you’re listening to the radio and an interesting story, or a song you love, comes on and you just can’t get out of the car. For the rest of the song or article, all your to-dos and schedules fall away and you just sit in the car listening (and maybe dancing and singing). Sometimes as a mom, those minutes in the car are your only alone time of the day. Please tell me I’m not the only mom who does this. 🙂

"Me Time" in the New 2021 Nissan Rogue

This past week, I had the opportunity to test my “me time” in the new 2021 Nissan Rogue!

If you’ve been social-distancing and quarantining, getting any time alone is hard. I’m not ashamed to admit it, I’ve “gone out to run an errand” a few times and simply driven around the block and parked. I can listen to my favorite music or podcasts, use the Bluetooth to safely catch up with a friend, and really sink into luxury features like plush leather seats.

With wireless phone charging, I can stay parked all day (or at least long enough to avoid another explanation of my kid’s latest superhero obsession). It’s better than taking a hot bath because the kids can’t bang on the door to ask for snacks!

When I do have the kids with me, the car has more rear occupant space than the previous generation of Rogues. This is great, not only because those kids keep getting bigger, but because more space, Bluetooth, and wireless charging all mean that they can stay out of each other’s way, and I don’t have to hear “Mom, he …”

Obviously, a car is about more than just a great place to chill. The ride is so smooth and calm that I actually enjoy driving my Nissan Rogue.

The  Safety Shield 360 safety features include Rear Automatic Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Warning. And the back-up camera gives me a nice, clear view of any obstacles behind or beside me, which is an important safety feature for me.

Nissan Rogue has always been a great car, but the new  Rogue has a full redesign integrating more technology, style, and standard safety tech than ever before. This next-gen Rogue is their first all-new version since  2014. It’s a vast improvement over the current generation. It’s no longer a simple tech-forward, practical vehicle. Now, it’s an advanced, luxurious, premium mid-size CUV!

I love driving my Nissan Rogue, I also love sitting in it, just don’t tell my kids!
