Are you torn between upgrading to a new Toyota RAV4 or the Nissan Rogue? For 2021, these models continue to be popular options that are often compared to each other. With relatively comparable base-level pricing, it is easy to assume that they may be similar in most areas. However, through a detailed review, you can quickly identify the differences between these models that should impact your buying decision.
The 2021 Toyota RAV4 has endless personality, and this is defined by an aggressive grille design and piercing, angled headlights. The headlights flare to a point, and the lower front air vents have a similar geometric shape. The RAV4’s sides have a smooth flow, and this is accentuated by a crisply angled line on the top of the doors and a sharper, angled feature that runs above the side molding. The 2021 Nissan Rogue has a relatively flat hood that rounds sharply through the V-Motion grille. This grille has been mostly unchanged for years. The angled headlights have a slit-like quality. The sides are molded with thin definition over the wheel wells.
Inside the 2021 RAV4 and the 2021 Nissan Rogue, you can find several of the same features. These include USB ports, a sound system, smart device integration, powered seat adjustments, cruise control, auto climate control, and assistive driver’s aids. The most significant differences inside these two-row cabins are found in the design elements and materials rather than in their features.
Under both hoods, you will find comparable 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engines. Notably, this engine produces 181 horsepower in the Rogue and 203 horsepower in the RAV4. The RAV4 pairs the engine with an eight-speed auto transmission and front-wheel drive. The Rogue comes with continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive.
