2017 Toyota RAV4
2017 Nissan Rogue
When choosing a new crossover, two of the most popular choices are the 2017 Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue. Of course, you can only choose one of these vehicles, but which one? See how these two top-selling crossovers match up:
We know that safety is at the top of your mind when thinking about things you want your vehicle to excel in. Both of these vehicles earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS. However, the 2017 Toyota RAV4 had a 5-star overall crash test rating from the NHTSA, while the Nissan Rogue only received four stars. Plus, the RAV4 comes with Toyota Safety Sense™, which is standard on all trim levels and brings you technologies like Lane Departure Alert, a Pre-Collision System, and more.
Another factor worth mentioning is that the 2017 Nissan Rogue had a recall with a frontal airbag not deploying correctly in the event of a crash. There have been no similar recalls on the RAV4 thus far, further proving Toyota’s dedication to safety.
Performance and Handling
Both the RAV4 and the Rogue have 2.5-liter four-cylinder engines, but the Rogue lacks in ease of handling, and isn’t very agile. The RAV4, on the other hand, has a six-speed automatic transmission and can handle any type of road or weather conditions thrown its way. It has a powerful engine and impressive nimbleness and cornering.
Buying a new vehicle is no small purchase, so you want something that is built to last. When you drive away in the 2017 RAV4, you can expect just this. Even though both vehicles come with identical limited warranties and limited powertrain warranties, over 90% of RAV4s sold in the last ten years are still on the road today. You can be sure your RAV4 will be able to handle all of your passengers and gear for many years to come.
