The 2017 Nissan Rogue vs. the Competition

 

Compact SUVs make up one of the fastest growing new vehicle model categories in Canada, and the Nissan Rogue is always right at the top of the sales chart. 

Why so popular? Styling has a lot to do with any purchasing decision and the Rogue is regularly praised for its sporty yet elegant design, yet performance, fuel economy, comfort, practicality, safety, and other parameters play important roles in the decision making process too. 




Rather than tell you why we think the Rogue is the best choice in its class, we decided to put together a simple, straightforward, point-form list of key criteria from all the top-selling models including the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson and Ford Escape, leaving it up to you to choose what best fits your needs:


 Nissan RogueToyota RAV4 Honda CR-V Hyundai Tucson  Ford Escape 
MSRP $25,948  $27,445 $26,890$24,999 $25,099   
Seating Capacity 7 (optional)5  55  
Fuel Economy  9.2 / 7.0 10.0 / 7.8 8.4 / 7.010.1 / 7.8  10.6 / 8.0  
 Power (hp)170176 190 164  168 
Torque (lb-ft) 175172 179 151 170  
IIHS Top Safety Pick+YesYes   Yes No No 
Cargo (seats up/down) 
 1,112 / 1,982 1,090 / 2,080 1,110 / 2,146 878 / 1,753   964 / 1,925 


It's easy to see the Rogue strikes an excellent balance of size and economy, with an available third row and the most cargo space behind the rear seats yet the best highway fuel efficiency, while it's also big on torque yet easy on the pocketbook, delivering excellent value. Even more important, Nissan doesn't skimp on safety as evidenced by its best-possible IIHS Top Safety Pick + rating.
