Compact SUVs are a great option for both commuters and families. Vehicles like the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 provide you with lots of cargo room, comfortable amenities, and reliable safety features. Which one is right for you, though? To help drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, and Cortland decide, the team at Maguire Nissan looks at what each one has to offer in this Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV4 comparison.

Nissan Rogue Passenger & Cargo Room

The Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4 both have two rows of seats and space for up to five people. The Nissan gives you extra space to stretch out, though, with 105.8 cubic feet of passenger room. The Toyota has a smaller cabin with just 98.9 cubic feet of space.

You'll definitely feel the difference when you're behind the wheel. The Nissan Rogue has 41.6 inches of headroom and 43 inches of legroom. There's also plenty of room for three passengers to sit together in the back seats with 52.1 inches of hip room.

The Toyota forces taller drivers to squeeze in with only 37.7 inches of headroom and 41 inches of legroom. It may also make your passengers feel cramped with just 47.7 inches of hip room in the back seats.

Each SUV is also designed to carry lots of cargo. The Nissan Rogue has a large trunk with 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room. With the back seats folded down, you can get up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room. Plus, the Divide-N-Hide® cargo system lets you quickly configure it to make shelves and cargo dividers.

The Toyota RAV4 has a smaller trunk with just 37.6 cubic feet of cargo room. Unfortunately, the trunk doesn't have the same kind of versatility as the Rogue, either. While it also has folding seats, you can only get up to 69.8 cubic feet of cargo room.

Nissan Rogue Safety Features

The Nissan Rogue is just as safe as it is comfortable. The interior features an advanced airbag system that covers both rows of seats with roof-mounted curtain airbags. You'll also have more awareness during your drive with Nissan Safety Shield® 360.

This bundle of driver-assistance features comes standard and helps prevent accidents. There's Blind Spot Warning that can help you change lanes, a Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.

The Toyota RAV4 also comes with side curtain airbags and some similar driver-assistance features. However, neither Blind Spot Warning nor Rear Cross Traffic Alert comes standard.

Nissan Rogue Interior Amenities

Each SUV offers features that make your drive more convenient and stylish. A 7-inch touch-screen comes standard in both, while amenities like heated seats, power adjustable front seats, and a large moonroof are all available. To add some class to the cabin, each one also offers a classic leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Nissan Rogue does a better job of building on this, though. There's a sporty flat-bottom steering wheel and a choice between cloth and leather seats. The Toyota RAV4 doesn't offer leather seats. It only offers cloth and synthetic SofTex® upholstery.
