2021 Nissan Rogue vs 2021 Toyota RAV4
Comparing the 2021 Nissan Rogue vs. the 2021 Toyota RAV4 with Stratford Nissan
The Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 have long been two of the most popular SUVs on the market, and we at Stratford Nissan have compared the two industry fixtures for customers in and around the Stratford, Ontario area. Find out how they measure up against each other below, then pay us a visit at Stratford Nissan to get a closer look at our new Rogue inventory.
Thanks to its tiered cargo floor, storage pockets, and a hidden shelf under the centre console, the 2021 Rogue gets the nod in storage capacity over the RAV4, especially when the rear seats are folded down. Both SUVs comfortably seat five passengers, although the Rogue has a lot more to offer on the inside than ergonomic arrangements. Between its faux-wood trim and soft-touch materials, the Nissan SUV's cabin is both welcoming and comfortable for long journeys, while the RAV4's interior remains marred by a few too many hard plastics.
Toyota has made great efforts to modernize the RAV4's exterior design, but for all its improvements and trim-specific enhancements, it lacks the on-road presence of the 2021 Nissan Rogue. Between its striking grille, sleek LED lighting, and streamlined body, the latest Rogue is a veritable head-turner, and it offers plenty of options for personalization in nearly a dozen available body colours. In short, this Nissan SUV has variety and modernity on its side.
The pair of SUVs are neck-and-neck in this department, as both pack 2.5-litre four-cylinder base engines paired with a front-wheel drive system. This year's Rogue and RAV4 are also both available in all-wheel drive for those who prioritize optimal control at the wheel, with the former garnering praise in reviewer circles for its improved acceleration. And while the RAV4 lineup includes several pricey upper trims, the new Nissan Rogue offers a similarly reliable powertrain and drive system at an affordable price, meaning it offers greater bang for your buck.
