Are you trying to decide which crossover you’d like to drive throughout the New England area? Would you like one that has the pep for thrilling rides, as well as confident efficiency for your commutes to and from Haverhill? Is space a priority for you? All of these are important considerations, especially if you’re shopping in the compact crossover SUV segment, and both the 2017 Nissan Rogue and the 2017 Toyota RAV4 prove competitive. Upon closer inspection, however, the Rogue comes out ahead. Read on to find out why this model defeats the competition and will best meet your driving demands around Andover and Methuen.

Performance and MPG

The 2017 Nissan Rogue and the 2017 Toyota RAV4 are almost neck and neck when it comes to output from their standard engines, but the Rogue pulls ahead when considering torque and fuel economy estimates. That’s because its 2.5L four-cylinder powertrain generates 175 lb-ft of torque, as compared with the 172 lb-ft of torque that comes from the RAV4’s 2.5L four-cylinder engine. That might not seem like a huge difference, but it’s certainly one you’ll notice on the road. Plus, the 2017 Rogue accomplishes an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, while the 2017 RAV4 only manages only 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. As such, it’s clear that the 2017 Nissan Rogue beats the competition.

Standard Cargo Space and Comfort

When picking out a compact crossover SUV, it’s likely that you prize a blend of generous cargo volume and plenty of room for passengers. And when you need the room for both, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is your best bet. When all seats are occupied, you’ll still have a whopping 39.3 cubic feet. Inside the 2017 Toyota RAV4, though, you’ll only have 38.4 cubic feet to work with when the second row is upright. What’s more, the latest Rogue has a unique cargo management system that allows you to organize all of your gear, which is not offered on the RAV4. And the new Rogue is considered best-in-class for front seat comfort, so it’s as prepared to accommodate passengers as it is for cargo. Both of these crossovers are able to seat up to five adults, but for more versatility, utility, and all-around comfort, you should select the latest Nissan Rogue.
