2017 Nissan Rogue vs. 2017 Nissan Murano
While it has long been known for its excellent sedans and trucks, Nissan has also carved out quite a reputation for making some excellent SUVs.
As two of the most popular models on the market, both the 2017 Nissan Rogue and the 2017 Nissan Murano have plenty of amenities and features to offer Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton area drivers.
To help you determine which model best fits your lifestyle, our team at Nissan 24 have put together this helpful comparison.
Nissan Murano vs. Nissan Rogue: Safety Features
Before we discuss the aspects of these two vehicles that set them apart, let’s talk about the key facet that binds them together: safety. No matter which vehicle you’re driving—the Rogue or Murano—Nissan wants you to be fully protected.
For this reason, both vehicles have been built with an exceptionally durable Zone body. Zone bodies have been reinforced with front and rear crumple zones, pipe-style steel side-door guard beams, and more, allowing both vehicles to stand up to impact force.
Handling features, such as active trace control and traction control, have also been added. That way, if you’re making a sharp turn or simply driving on some slippery roads, your SUV can stay safely on course.
Rogue vs. Murano: Economic Performance
One of the major differences between the 2017 Nissan Rogue and 2017 Nissan Murano is engine size. While the Rogue is equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that can produce 170 horsepower, the Murano comes with a much bigger 3.5L V6 that generates 260 horsepower.
Luckily, fuel economy isn’t sacrificed in either SUV. Thanks to the addition of the Xtronic continuously variable transmission, both vehicles are able to maintain remarkable efficiency.
Since it is the smaller vehicle, the Rogue unsurprisingly maintains better mileage at 25 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.1 The Murano, on the other hand, maintains a lesser 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.2
Nissan Rogue vs. Murano: Interior Space
As you may have guessed from its smaller engine, the 2017 Nissan Rogue is just a smaller SUV in general. While its 105.8 cubic feet of passenger volume beats many other cars in its class, it falls short of the Murano, which contains 108.1 cubic feet of passenger space.
Nevertheless, the Rogue makes up for its lesser passenger volume by offering slightly more headroom and legroom with 41.6 inches and 43 inches respectively. The Murano only has 39.9 inches of headroom and 40.5 inches of legroom.
Still, cargo space is at a high in both due to the unique Divide-N-Hide® cargo system. With this excellent system, passengers will have even more convenient ways to stow their cargo.
