Schedule Rogue Test Drive


2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Honda CR-V Comparison in Concord, NC

  • For a crossover meant to be driven on a daily basis, you'll love how the Rogue is more efficient than the CR-V, keeping your fuel costs down, especially for longer highway road trips.
  • With plenty of other driver assistance features available, none are as helpful as the Rogue's Intelligent Around View Monitor that keeps you out of harm's way wherever you are on the road. That kind of feature isn't offered with the CR-V. The Rogue also comes standard with blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert, which are only available as costly add-ons with the CR-V.
  • For easier infotainment functionality, the Rogue comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, while you'll have to choose a higher trim of the new CR-V for that level of convenience and ease with your touchscreen controls.

2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV4 Comparison in Concord, NC

  • If you want to choose the most affordable starting package, the Rogue is the way to go, offering standard blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, the easy-fill tire alert, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, while the RAV4 is going to command a higher price to add those features into the mix.
  • For utility's sake, the Rogue offers a far more expansive cargo storage area than what you'll find in the RAV4, helping you squeeze more stuff inside along with your passengers. To expand your cargo capacity, the fold-down rear seats in the Rogue are far easier and quicker to snap into place than what the RAV4 offers.
  • Once again, you'll find the Rogue is far more efficient than the RAV4, with the Nissan's 33 highway mpg in the FWD setup besting the Toyota's 30 mpg on the highway.



2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Ford Escape Comparison in Concord, NC

  • If you're driving your crossover on a daily basis and using it for commuting, the Rogue is the way to go, offering superior fuel efficiency than what the base engine level of the Ford Escape provides.
  • While AWD isn't a necessary feature here in the Charlotte area, it's nice to have, and the Rogue makes that an affordable add-on from the base trim upward. Meanwhile, AWD is only offered in the higher trims of the Escape, which, of course, cost you more.
  • The interior dimensions of the Rogue best the Escape in practically every area, but it's especially noticeable with the front-seat headroom, making the Nissan a better choice than Ford's compact SUV offering for adult front-seat passengers seeking maximum comfort.

2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Subaru Forester Comparison in Concord, NC

  • The optional third row of seating in the Rogue turns your compact SUV into a seven-passenger family vehicle with ease, and the middle and rear seats remain easy to fold, recline, slide and tilt forward for easy adjustments as you're on the go. The Forester will remain a five-passenger setup in all its trims.
  • Driver assistance features like standard blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and the available surround view monitor for the Rogue set you up better, and more cost-efficiently than the Forester, which offers a few similar features, but only in higher trims with added special packages.
  • The tire pressure monitor system and easy-fill tire alert in the Rogue aren't offered with the Forester. This handy system makes keeping your tires properly inflated easy, and wherever you are on your travels, you'll love having that kind of convenient maintenance check with you right on your front dash.



2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Hyundai Tucson Comparison in Concord, NC

  • We've touched on fuel efficiency above, but when comparing the Rogue to the Tucson, the Nissan SUV's advantage is even more apparent. You'll earn 29 combined mpg with the Rogue, compared to only 26 mpg for the Tucson, making the Nissan option your best bet for daily commuting.
  • Even with that fuel efficiency advantage, the Rogue's 2.5-liter four-cylinder offers better performance than the 2.0-liter four found in the new Tucson. When it comes to driving dynamics, the choice is clear.
  • Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the Rogue set you up far better in terms of infotainment compared to what the Tucson offers in its starting package.

2018 Nissan Rogue vs. Kia Sportage Comparison in Concord, NC

  • The new Sportage only offers AWD in its higher trims, while you can add that extra traction, control and safety to the Rogue in its base level. To add AWD in the Sportage, be prepared to spend more money.
  • Compared to the other SUVs listed, the Rogue is way more efficient than the Sportage, with the Nissan's combined 29 mpg besting the Kia's combined 25 mpg.
  • The cargo area in the Rogue more than doubles what's offered in the Sportage, making the interior of the Nissan crossover way more versatile and adaptable to add or remove seating, depending on your needs.
