2018 Nissan Rogue vs. 2018 Ford Escape

These days there are so many vehicles competing for consumer attention that it can be downright confusing trying to choose the one that fits your priorities and offers the best value. This is no truer than in the compact SUV segment, which has seen a boom in terms of sales and available models in recent years. More and more brands are trying to push their compact SUV as the best as consumers continue to gravitate towards the smaller and more fuel-efficient SUVs.

That's why we create these model comparison pages so that potential consumers can see how vehicle models stack up against each other, head-to-head. For this exercise, we'll be examining the 2018 Nissan Rogue, and the 2018 Ford Escape, two of the most popular compact SUVs available today. We'll compare each models' fuel economy, engine specifications, passenger volume and cargo volume so we can gauge each SUV's value to drivers.

As you can see, both models offer a lot of value in the compact SUV class. That being said, when compared directly, it's clear that the 2018 Nissan Rogue holds a distinct advantage over its Ford competitor. Whether you're looking for an SUV that offers more fuel-efficiency, power and performance, space for your passengers or space for your cargo, the 2018 Nissan Rogue outdoes its competition.

It might be easy to think that the differences between the two models are so thin that they're negligible. That would be mistaken. Ask your passengers if next time they're all in the back seat whether they would like eight extra cubic feet of space! Or, if the next time you're loading the trunk with luggage for vacation if you could use five more cubic feet to work with!

The 2018 Nissan Rogue, though, isn't just a compact SUV with a lot of space and good fuel economy, it's also one of the safest vehicles on the road today. This is thanks to its wealth of advanced safety features and driver-assist technologies. Available features include:

  • Nissan ProPILOT Assist 

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection 

  • Blind Spot Warning 

  • Lane Departure Warning 

  • Intelligent Lane Intervention 

  • Intelligent Around View Monitor 

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
