Cabin Space & Versatility

Compact crossover SUVs are all about maximizing interior space for whatever is next, whether that be transporting up to five adults or hauling a cabin full of cargo. Both the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4 do a nice job of delivering a roomy and flexible interior, but one of these CUVs offers more -- and that's the Rogue! With 105.4 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Nissan crossover compared to just 98.9 cubic feet in the Toyota, there's a reason why many motorists and families prefer the Rogue.

Second-row passengers in particular will appreciate the immense cabin space in the 2021 Rogue, as this compact SUV presents substantially more leg room and hip room than what you'll find in the Toyota RAV4's back seat area. The added rear leg room is certainly a perk of choosing the Nissan model, but so is the Rogue's maximum cargo capacity. Fold down those second-row seats and the 2021 Rogue provides up to 74.1 cubic feet for your cargo. Here, the Toyota RAV4 falls short once again, offering only a maximum cargo volume of 69.8 cubic feet.

When you're looking to maximize both passenger comfort and cargo-hauling capabilities in a new compact CUV, it's clear that the 2021 Nissan Rogue is a smart choice!

Standard Safety & Driver-Assist Technology

Nissan and Toyota both offer some of today's latest driver-assistance and safety features on their top-selling compact CUVs. Driver aids like automatic pre-collision braking and adaptive cruise control are featured on both the 2021 Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 models, but the Nissan model still has some key advantages over its rival. For instance, only the new Rogue gets Rear Automatic Braking and a Blind Spot Monitor as standard equipment. Similar technologies on the new Toyota RAV4 require an upgrade from the LE base trim. But why pay more for safety and driver-assist tech that you can get as complimentary with every 2021 Nissan Rogue?

Pricing & Value

Nissan's 2021 Rogue starts with an MSRP of just $25,650* for the S base trim, which is hundreds of dollars less than a comparable 2021 Toyota RAV4 LE base model. Of course, pricing is everything. So let's take a closer look at what you get for the new Rogue's highly competitive starting price. A full suite of six Nissan Safety Shield 360 technologies are included with every 2021 Rogue, along with aluminum wheels and a generous 36-month roadside assistance program. Toyota and the 2021 RAV4 fall short on all of these fronts, as the automaker's compact SUV can't match the Rogue's affordable pricing, extensive safety suite and impressive list of other standard features and warranty benefits.
