We’re excited to once again shine the spotlight on the Nissan Rogue. Has anyone noticed the latest Star Wars trailer? While the trailer is a continuation of Rey’s story, we can’t help but think back to the Rogue One movie. Nissan partnered with the Star Wars franchise to promote the movie and the Nissan Rogue together. But enough of pop culture and its connection to vehicles, let’s get down to business—how does Nissan Rogue rate? 


Is its popularity all flashy marketing? Or is there something to the Nissan Rogue?


We’ll walk you through some information on how the Nissan Rogue rates in contrast to other comparable compact SUVs.


For the most part, we think you’ll be impressed. But don’t take our word for it. Read on.

How does Nissan Rogue rate?

So how does the Nissan Rogue rate? We’re glad you asked. Let’s break things down and see who’s up for contrast against this little SUV. 


We’re going to introduce you to three vehicles. These vehicles are going to stand side-by-side against the compact Nissan Rogue: Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4, and the Ford Escape.


While you’ve seen the advertisements and the hype, have you ever wondered how these vehicles compare with the Nissan Rogue? 

Rogue bragging rights

The Nissan Rogue is in a class of its own. For the Rogue, you're looking at the best-in-class with cargo capacity, an intelligent around-view monitor, an easy-fill tire alert, and 33 mpg on the highway. Not bad, huh?

Fuel comparison

So the Nissan Rogue comes out to 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.


For fuel, the vehicles compare as follows:

  • Honda CR-V: Up to 28 city / 34 highway.

  • Toyota RAV4: Up to 26 city / 35 highway.

  • Ford Escape: Up to 23 city / 30 highway.


Cargo room

Now let’s discuss the cargo room. The Nissan Rogue is a compact SUV. But don’t let that fool you. It boasts of 39.3 ft³ for cargo room.


Here’s how the others compare in cargo room:

  • Honda CR-V: 37.6 to 39.2 ft³

  • Toyota RAV4: 37.5 to 37.6 ft³

  • Ford Escape: 34.4 to 37.5 ft³

360-degree view of your surroundings

Here's a winning feature of the Nissan Rogue. The class-exclusive intelligent around-view monitor. It lets you garner a complete virtual composite 360-degree image of your vehicle's surroundings. The visual and audible alerts let you know if something is moving toward or around the vehicle. 


Now how does that compare to the other vehicles?

  • Honda CR-V: While safety features are available, there’s nothing that comes close to the 360-degree image provided by the Nissan Rogue.

  • Toyota RAV4: Safety features come with the Toyota RAV4, but a 360-degree image of your surroundings is not part of the safety package.

  • Ford Escape: While the Ford Escape does have safety alert features, it does not provide a 360-degree view of your surroundings.


In the Nissan Rogue, you can sit tall. You have 41.6 inches for headroom.

  • Honda CR-V: 40.1 inches of headroom.

  • Toyota RAV4: 39.5 inches of headroom.

  • Ford Escape: 39.9 inches of headroom.


We know who wins here. If you have tall people in your life, that extra headroom space is going to be alluring. Don’t doubt it.
