For car-buyers searching for a compact SUV, the 2022 Nissan Rogue and the 2022 RAV4 are appealing options. Both vehicles are great for mid-size families, have a lot of technology and safety features, and are comfortable for long drivers. With a similar price and a similar list of design attributes, specs, and features it can be hard to choose between the two. So, we’re outlining the highlights of both vehicles to help you decide which model will meet your family’s needs.
When it comes to power and performance the 2022 Rogue and the 2022 RAV4 are pretty similarly outfitted under the hood. The Nissan Rogue has a standard 201-horsepower 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable transmission that provides a smooth shifting experience similar to automatic transmissions. The Toyota RAV4 has a 203-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Both models are sufficient for commuting through the city. Drivers of the 2022 Nissan Rogue, however, may notice an advantage when it comes to fuel economy.
Both SUVs have seating to comfortably accommodate five people. They have more than adequate legroom and headroom for adults to feel comfortable in the front and rear seats. But passengers might find that the Nissan Rogue’s NASA-inspired, zero-gravity seats are more comfortable on long drives.
Behind the rear seat, the RAV4 has 37.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is a bit more than the Nissan Rogue’s 31.6 cubic feet of space. When you lower the rear seats however, that ratio inverts and the Nissan Rogue’s 74.1 cubic feet of total cargo space is more accommodating than the RAV4’s 69.3 cubic feet. In addition, available on the Nissan Rogue is the unique Divide-N-Hide® adjustable storage system that provides owners with 18 different shelf and divider configurations to maximize the space behind the rear seat.
The Rogue and the RAV4 are feature-packed SUV models. The Rogue has a larger 8-inch infotainment touchscreen system than the RAV4. It also has an available 9-inch option. Both models have modern features available throughout their line-up such as:
The generous lists of standard safety and driver assistance features available on the Rogue and the RAV4 are impressive.
