Toyota RAV4 vs Nissan Rogue Wallingford CT


Which Compact Crossover is Right For You?


When it comes down to a head-to-head comparison, the Toyota RAV4 vs. Nissan Rogue is the tightest competition in this class. We compare the features that matter most to drivers in Wallingford, CT, and invite you to visit Toyota of Wallingford for a closer look.

Beyond the MSRP: The RAV4 Costs Less to Own

If you compare sticker prices, it looks like the Nissan Rogue is the less pricey option. But when you pencil the cost to own each SUV over three to five years, the RAV4 is the better value. ToyotaCare, included with every new vehicle, provides two years/25,000 miles of no-cost maintenance and roadside assistance. Nissan doesn’t offer complimentary maintenance. Edmunds True Cost to Own estimate shows that you’ll pay nearly $3,000 less to own the Toyota over five years, which includes a savings of over $1,600 in maintenance and repair costs.

Bring Along the Big Toys

If you’ve narrowed your decision down to the Toyota RAV4 vs the Nissan Rogue, you’ll notice that they are remarkably similar in size and style. The Rogue has a slightly larger passenger cabin, and the trunk area is a couple of cubic feet larger. But if you have outdoor toys like watercraft, trail bikes, or snowmobiles, you’ll have more towing capability with the Toyota. With a trailer package, you can pull up to 3,500 pounds in the RAV4 versus Nissan’s 1,100-pound capacity. Both SUVs are front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive as an option, but the Toyota offers a TRD Off-Road trim for drivers like their getaways with a little less pavement.

A Bigger Herd Under the Hood

Both crossovers offer a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. In Motor Trend’s testing, the Rogue’s 170-horsepower engine took 9.5 seconds to get from 0-60, while the RAV4’s 203-horses galloped to freeway speed in just 8.2 seconds. The extra horsepower doesn’t come at the expense of fuel economy. Toyota’s start/stop technology maximizes efficiency for a rating of up to 35 highway MPG versus 33 highway MPG in the Nissan. Toyota also offers a hybrid option in its popular SUV. There is no hybrid model of the Rogue available.

A Safety Superstar

Each vehicle includes several airbags that can reduce serious injury in the event of an accident. And when it comes to avoiding accidents, both the Nissan and Toyota come with in-demand driver assistance features, including braking assist and collision avoidance technology. The RAV4 also offers essential safety and navigation tech such as adaptive cruise control, driver drowsiness monitoring, and traffic sign recognition—all standard. Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist, which includes a version of adaptive cruise control, is an upgrade, and traffic sign recognition isn’t available. What did the experts have to say when it comes to safety on these crossovers? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Rogue a four-star rating, while the RAV4 earned five stars. And the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety made the Toyota a Top Safety Pick.
