2017 Nissan Rogue vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4
The Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4 are at the forefront of the crossover and small SUV revolution that is taking the vehicle industry by storm. Drivers are completely smitten with these vehicles that have all the best qualities of both sedans and larger SUVs – fuel economy that is car-like, space for cargo that is SUV-like, and much more, all at an affordable starting price that is very wallet- and family-friendly.
So let's take a look at the differences between these two titans of the crossover segment. The 2017 Rogue has super fuel economy for a vehicle that can fit 70 cubic feet of cargo in back at 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, while the 2017 RAV4 lags behind at a more pedestrian 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway. While the RAV4 has a little more cargo room in back at 73.4 cubic feet, it does not have the wealth of cargo options that come with the Rogue, with its class-exclusive Divide-N-Hide Cargo System, which enables you to sort precious items and keep them safe. Nor does the 2017 RAV4 have the size for a large group that the 2017 Rogue does, with its superior interior room and seating options, as we will demonstrate, below.
