Toyota RAV4 vs Nissan Rogue: Comparing Engine Specs
While both of these SUVs supply you with multiple engines from which to choose, the ones that you’ll find in the RAV4 simply prove to be more powerful. Its standard offering is a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that can give you up to 203 horsepower along with 184 lb-ft of torque. The available hybrid provides you with a combined system net of 219 horsepower.
The engine choices for the Rogue are not as satisfying. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine only produces 170 horsepower with 175 lb-ft of torque. The available hybrid engine also falls short with a system net power of 176 horsepower.
With the kind of muscle you can expect to get from the Toyota RAV4, you can be sure that it will be able to take on any challenge that comes your way.
Its performance isn’t the only area where you’ll find the Toyota RAV4 to be accommodating. You’ll see proof of this with a quick examination of the room it provides its occupants inside the cabin.
You and one of your passengers are able to enjoy plenty of comfort up front with 54.3 inches of hip room and 57.8 inches of shoulder room at your disposal. Whether you’re carpooling to work or taking your kids to school, the passengers in the back seats can expect there to be plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy the ride with 41 inches of legroom.
The Nissan Rogue does not have quite as spacious of an interior. The front row only supplies you with 54 inches of hip room and 56.6 inches of shoulder room, and the second row’s legroom only comes to 37.9 inches.
A Look at Technology
Both SUVs start out strong in this category by coming standard with 7-inch touchscreen infotainment displays for easy access to all of your controls. The available 8-inch touchscreen display in the Toyota RAV4 makes it even easier to adjust your personal settings and find your favorite channels while the majority of your focus remains on the road in front of you. The RAV4 continues to pull ahead with available wireless smartphone and mobile-device charging not found in the Rogue.
