Nissan Rogue Special

Nissan Rogue Exterior vs. Subaru Forester Exterior

The 2016 Nissan Rogue and Subaru Forester are stylish SUVs, but the Nissan tends to get the slight edge for how well it compares to previous models. By polishing up older flourishes and updating the grille with chrome bars and LED lamps, the latest Nissan Rogue is an elegant model that makes for a bold aesthetic statement while still refraining from the flashiness of other SUVs.

The Subaru Forester isn’t a bad looking car by any means, but unlike the Nissan Rogue, the Subaru is about level with many of its past models. As a result, the 2016 Subaru Forester fails to stand out much physically.

Engine Comparison

Engine performance is basically even between the 2016 Nissan Rogue and Subaru Forester. Both offer 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines that produce 170 horsepower. The Nissan does get the slightest of edges in torque, with 175 lb-ft to 174 lb-ft.

However, this isn’t where the difference is felt. The 2016 Nissan Rogue impresses with its acceleration and maneuverability, which can’t readily be said of the Subaru Forester.

Nissan Rogue Interior vs. Subaru Forester Interior

There’s a clear edge to the 2016 Nissan Rogue when it comes to comfort. While the Subaru Forester does provide plenty of legroom for its passengers in addition to good recline levels both in front and behind, the seats can be a little stiff.

For a more supportive and comfortable ride, you want to try the Nissan Rogue. All of the interior materials are soft and pleasing to the touch, and even the tallest passengers will find room inside. You can even choose to include a third row in your Nissan Rogue, which sacrifices only minimal comfort for the sake of extra seating.
