The compact SUV market is crowded, so it makes sense if you’re struggling to make a decision. So, we’re here to help you whittle down your list to two impressive options — the 2022 Nissan Rogue and 2022 Toyota RAV4 — and explain why the 2022 Rogue is the better value.
The fuel-efficient performance of the 2022 Nissan Rogue not only delivers impressive EPA estimates, it also bests the 2022 Toyota RAV4. When you upgrade to the new, available 1.5-liter VC-Turbo™ to power the 2022 Rogue, you will earn best-in-gas engine fuel economy and torque. A properly equipped 2022 Rogue with FWD earns 30 mpg in the city, 37 mpg on the highway, and 33 mpg combined. FWD-equipped 2022 Toyota RAV4 models, on the other hand, earn EPA-estimated ratings of 27 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
You and your passengers have more room to stretch out in the 2022 Nissan Rogue, which makes every drive more enjoyable. The overall interior passenger space in the Rogue is 105.4 cubic feet, while the 2022 RAV4 is more cramped with 98.9 cubic feet of space.
You will have more room for your bags, gear, and other items in the 2022 Rogue, too, thanks to its maximum cargo capacity of 74.1 cubic feet. The RAV4 offers a smaller maximum cargo capacity of just 69.8 cubic feet.
The 2022 Rogue offers innovative technologies designed to improve your time on the road. The keyless ignition system is standard, and you can upgrade to wireless Apple CarPlay® capability for a wire-free and fuss-free way to integrate your smartphone on your drive. Wireless Apple CarPlay® isn’t an option on the 2022 RAV4.
The available Digital Dashboard gauge cluster in the 2022 Rogue dwarfs the one in the 2022 RAV4. The Rogue’s display is 12.3 inches while the RAV4 models is 7 inches.
Why try a RAV4 when the 2020 Nissan Rogue gives you more of what you need? Since the Rogue has more space and standard safety features for a more affordable price, there’s no reason to even glance in the direction of the 2020 Toyota RAV4.
More space to relax
The 2020 Nissan Rogue is a roomier vehicle than the Toyota RAV4 all around, boasting more first-row headroom, more first- and second-row legroom, and best-in-class 39.3 cubic feet of storage space behind the second row.
One of the best space-saving features on the 2020 Nissan Rogue is the available Divide-n-Hide® storage system — also a class-exclusive feature only Nissan offers. This ingenious feature lets you transform the rear cargo space into two separate, horizontal storage spaces or a vertical shelf. You can also position the shelves to hide valuable cargo if you need to. This system comes in very handy for those large, stocking-up trips to the big box stores or for a local delivery business.
You need support for those long drives and the RAV4 has an eight-position adjustable driver’s seat, but the Rogue offers Zero Gravity front seats. These seats were designed based on NASA studies of weightlessness and support the driver and front seat passenger along 14 different pressure points to keep the spine in a neutral position. All that scientific expertise means more comfort on longer drives with the Nissan Rogue.
Standard safety features
The Nissan Rogue offers the Intelligent Mobility Safety Shield® 360 standard on all models, offering a comprehensive collection of driver-assistive technologies aimed at keeping you safer. One feature standard on every Rogue: Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which helps look out for you while backing up. With the RAV4, you’ll need to get a more expensive trim for comparable tech. The Rogue is also available with Around View® Monitor with class-exclusive Moving Object Detection technology, helping keep you aware of your surroundings at all time.
When you’ve got an option that’s as well-equipped as the 2020 Nissan Rogue, you don’t need to pay an SUV like the RAV4 a bit of mind. Check out the new 2020 Nissan Rogue at Galesburg Nissan in Galesburg, IL, and step up your game.
