Both the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2021 Toyota RAV4 offer reliable performance, spacious interiors, and plenty of high-tech features to amplify your rides across Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood. How do you know which of these SUVs will best suit you?
To help you make an informed decision, our team at Cherry Hill Nissan created this head-to-head comparison.
When it comes to tackling challenging terrain and weather conditions, you can upgrade your drivetrain in either SUV.
The Rogue offers an Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) that continually maximizes traction, so you can move forward with confidence. The 2021 RAV4 offers a similar option to optimize performance.
However, in terms of acceleration, one of these SUVs will give you slightly more of a boost. The 2021 Toyota RAV4 comes with a standard 176-horsepower 2.5L engine. In comparison, the 2021 Rogue features a peppier 181-horsepower 2.5L motor.
Drivers will especially notice the added bit of power offered by the Nissan Rogue when navigating congested city streets or merging into busy highway lanes.
These SUVs also offer available amenities like an Intelligent Around View® Monitor, which utilizes cameras strategically placed around your vehicle to provide a bird’s eye view of your surroundings. With the help of this feature, even tricky parallel parking maneuvers will become simplified.
However, the Rogue also comes standard with Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, while you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim to make them available in the RAV4. These systems work as an extra set of eyes alerting you to vehicles approaching on either of your side blind zones when jetting down the highway or backing out of a tight parking space. Without these features in the RAV4, you may not have as confident and alert of a drive as you would in the Rogue.
Pick a seat and sink into the soft available quilted semi-aniline leather seats. Special isn’t it? But building a crossover from the ground up is about more than premium amenities and generous leg room. It’s about designing something as small as a button to feel more human. And something as large as a moonroof to feel more personal, no matter where you’re sitting.
Along with that, the 2021 Rogue provides some extra room for you, your passengers, and your belongings. To optimize the cabin space even more, the Nissan Rogue offers the convenient Divide-N-Hide® Cargo System, which allows you to store valuable items under the floor, safely out of sight.
|MAXIMUM CARGO ROOM||74.1 cu. ft.||69.8 cu. ft.|
|INTERIOR PASSENGER VOLUME||105.4 cu. ft.||98.9 cu. ft.|
The optional panoramic moonroof in either SUV lets everyone enjoy more fresh air and sunshine while on the move.
If the windows are closed, however, you may feel more comfortable with the available Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control in the Nissan Rogue. The 2021 RAV4 only offers a dual zone automatic climate control system.
Inside these SUVs, you will also discover an array of high-tech features. The Rogue features a standard 8-inch touchscreen display, which is a full inch larger than the standard display in the RAV4.
Smartphone integration in both models enable you to quickly access your favorite apps. Although, drivers may appreciate the easier-to-read icons in the Rogue.
Another element of automotive technology is active safety. The Nissan Rogue features the Nissan Safety Shield® 360 safety suite, while the RAV4 has the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) system. Both models offer features like the following:
These systems work together to boost your awareness while you navigate the open road. For added peace of mind, some can even operate automatically to avoid or mitigate the impact of an oncoming collision.
One feature you will only find available in the 2021 Rogue, however, is Intelligent Driver Alertness. By monitoring your driving patterns, this intelligent system can detect signs of fatigue.
If it does, you will receive an alert, encouraging you to pull over to rest before continuing along your route.
