2021 Nissan Rogue vs. Its Competition

2021 Nissan Rogue
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The 2021 Nissan Rogue faces tough competition that offers advanced powertrains with hybrid and plug-in hybrid options.

Hybrid versions of the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Ford Escape meet or exceed 40 mpg city.

Plug-in versions of the RAV4 Prime and Escape PHEV offer 42 miles and 37 miles of all-electric range, respectively.

The Mazda CX-5 gives shoppers a sportier, premium option, while the Subaru Forester with standard all-wheel drive honors the utility part of this small sport utility class.

Quick Specs
Nissan nudges the Rogue upstream with a more refined ride, interior, and features but the powertrain doesn’t take any steps forward.
The 2021 Toyota RAV4 is the meat-and-potatoes crossover for many buyers; the RAV4 Prime supplies the all-electric range.
The 2020 Ford Escape takes a more refined tack, and brings its hybrid edition back into vogue.
The 2020 Honda CR-V hits right at the heart of many buyers’ needs: comfortable, spacious, quiet, and efficient.
The 2020 Mazda CX-5 trades family-ready space for fine handling and good power.
The 2020 Subaru Forester is an incredible value among compact crossovers and a former Best Car To Buy winner.
