Compare the Subaru Forester and Nissan Rogue near The Dalles

New compact crossovers are all the rage these days, thanks to their helpful blend of rugged confidence and commanding ride height combined with their car-like handling and efficient dynamics. But not every crossover is made alike. Take the Subaru Forester and the Nissan Rogue. Though you might admire both of these vehicles - and may even think they're similar from a distance - a closer look reveals many areas where the former shines and the latter blends in with the rest of the compact SUV class.

Though the Nissan Rogue is stylish, efficient, and packed with a variety of features that make it a compelling choice, the Subaru Forester is so overflowing with style, options, and features, it pulls ahead of the competition. Not convinced? Allow us to fill you in on what exactly makes this Subaru model such a fantastic option!


Power and Fuel Efficiency

The Subaru Forester, like other Subaru models, comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel-drive and a Boxer engine, making it both efficient and capable. The Forester is, in fact, among the minority of compact SUVs to include all-wheel-drive standard, making it a better performer in inclement weather conditions or over uncertain road conditions.

What's more, the Forester includes a four-cylinder engine that sips fuel to the tune of an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway. If you want more power a larger engine is also available. That can't be said of the Nissan Rogue, which comes with only one engine choice. Plus the Rogue only achieves 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway when equipped with all-wheel-drive.


Space and Style Showdown

It's undeniable - the Subaru Forester has a rugged charm unequalled by other compact SUVs, including the Nissan Rogue. Style, is of course a personal aesthetic, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a vehicle with as functional and stylish an interior as the Forester. Aside from seating for five - which the Nissan Rogue also has - the Forester features over 75 cubic space of cargo - more than the Rogue. Plus, in 2.0XT models, the Forester gets an especially sporty look inside and out, not to mention a turbo engine.


Safety and Technology Galore

Both the Forester and Rogue offer standard touchscreen infotainment, because both Subaru and Nissan realize the importance a connected driving experience is for modern drivers like you. Still, the Forester is the only compact crossover to offer the full functionality of Subaru STARLINK™ technology. If infotainment weren't enough, both SUVs also offer plenty of passive and active safety features to keep all passengers secure all the time. The Forester, though, is the only SUV of the two to offer EYESIGHT®, a unique program of active safety technologies that work together like an extra set of eyes on the road.
