In the small crossover segment, competition is tough. Two popular options are the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4. We’ll compare the 2017 models to show you how the Rogue stacks up.
If you are a tall driver, you’ll be more comfortable in the Rogue. It offers 41.6 inches of front headroom, while the RAV4 comes up short with only 39.8 inches of headroom. Another interior innovation is the Rogue’s EZ Flex Seating System. This available feature provides easy access to the third-row seats with a second row that tilts forward, slides, and reclines. This feature is unavailable on the RAV4.
You don’t need a car just to move passengers; most people need it to haul some cargo, too. With the Rogue, you’ll have more room to do just that. Behind the second row, the Rogue offers 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space. In the RAV4, there are only 38.4 cubic feet. In addition, the Rogue offers the class-exclusive Divide-N-Hide Cargo System with 18 configurations to store, organize, and hide your valuables. The RAV4 has nothing that even compares.
An important part of keeping your car well-maintained is proper tire pressure. The Rogue makes this easier than ever with its class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert system. When your tire pressure starts to get low, the Rogue will alert you and even show you the pressure level in each tire. Then, when you add more air, the Rogue will honk when you’ve reached the correct pressure. With the RAV4, you’ll have to keep checking the pressure until you get it right.
One of the most important factors when shopping for a car is price. The Rogue will keep more money in your pocket with a starting price of only $23,820. The RAV4 will cost you at least $24,910.
