2015 Nissan Rogue vs. Its Competition

2015 Nissan Rogue
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Nissan Rogue doesn't sell in quite the same volume that you'll find with its competitors, but Nissan aims to fix that.

The Hyundai Sant Fe Sport offers equally good looks and better performance from its turbocharged model.

The Mazda CX-5 offers excellent driving dynamics, but isn't much of a performer–much like the Honda CR-V.

The Toyota RAV4 only offers a four-cylinder engine now, but is more attractive than ever before.

The Ford Escape may present the highest mountain to climb here, with good driving dynamics, extra power, and more technology than anything else in the segment.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Nissan Rogue may have a small third row, but it's a better car than the previous generation in virtually every way.
With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
The 2015 Honda CR-V is neither sporty nor particularly quick, but fuel efficiency is excellent and it prioritizes interior space, earnest practicality, and cleverly chosen features in a way that buyers appear to crave.
The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe is really two vehicles in one, with the larger model geared toward big families and the smaller Sport version good for those with smaller broods.
The 2015 Mazda CX-5 is an athletic, fuel-efficient, well-designed small crossover.
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a practical crossover with confident handling. Just know that driving enjoyment is not its strong point.
