See How the 2021 Nissan Rogue Beats its Competition

When you are starting out looking for a new vehicle to drive around Kingston, most of the time, you already know what body type you need and then compare those types of vehicles to find the one that works best for you. If you want a mid-sized SUV, three of the top models are the 2021 Nissan Rogue, the 2021 Honda CR-V, and the 2021 Toyota RAV4.

All three of these vehicles have very similar features and space, but when you look closely, the 2021 Nissan Rogue comes out on top. Read on to find out more, and then come to our Nissan dealership in Poughkeepsie to look at your trim level and color options.

Stronger Engine

For a smooth ride and safe handling around Newburgh, compact SUVs have the stability to keep you on the road no matter the conditions. The 2021 Nissan Rogue has a bigger displacement than the 2021 Honda CR-V and the 2021 Toyota RAV-4, with its 2.5L four-cylinder engine.

While the other two vehicles put out more horsepower and torque, the bigger displacement gives it a bigger capacity. The continuously variable automatic transmission on the Nissan Rogue gives it a better fuel economy, easier acceleration, and drives better on different types of roads. The 106.5-inch wheelbase also adds more balance when driving. The Nissan Rogue's powertrain works together to give you a better ride on your drive to work.

Easy to Use Technology

The Nissan Rogue has the most modern and user-friendly technology features out of its competition. The 2021 Nissan Rogue's eight-inch touchscreen is larger than the seven-inch touchscreen on the 2021 Honda CR-V and the 2021 Toyota RAV4. Even though it is only an inch larger, that inch makes it so that you do not have to really lean into the map to see street names. The two USB ports that are standard on only the Nissan Rogue will charge your phones while you are out and about.

Safety Packages

It is important that you get a vehicle that will go the extra mile to keep you and your passengers safe while on the road. All three SUVs come with many driver safety aids that will reduce the possibility that you might get into an accident and lessen the impact that you feel if you did get into an accident. While each vehicle comes with its own safety package, the Nissan Rogue has more features on lower trim levels. The Nissan Safety Shield consists of features like:

  • Lane departure warning: This feature will alert you when you start to unknowingly drift out of your lane. It can even gently nudge you back into the middle of the lane.
  • Forward collision mitigation: This will warn you and possibly even apply the brakes if the vehicle senses that the car in front of you has slowed down or stopped.
  • Rear-passenger safe exit system: This will not let your rear passenger open the door should there be another vehicle coming up on your side.

All of these features make sure that you make better driving decisions while on the road.

Overall Cargo Space

SUVs are great for having the cargo space to carry around furniture, groceries, and appliances to your home in Wappingers Falls. The Nissan Rogue has a smaller cargo space behind the second-row seats at 35.5 cubic feet but can still hold your luggage with no issues.

All three vehicles also have folding and removable seats that let you rearrange the cabin to fit your needs. This makes it so that you can add cargo space for longer or bulkier items. This makes the Nissan Rogue have a bigger overall cargo space than the Toyota RAV4. The Nissan Rogue has a maximum of 74.1 cubic feet of cargo space while the Toyota RAV4 has 69.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo capacity.
