2021 Nissan Rogue vs. 2021 Toyota RAV4


If you've been searching for the perfect crossover SUV for your family in the New Port Richey area, there's no doubt you've come across both the 2021 Nissan Rogue and the 2021 Toyota RAV 4 in doing so. Both crossover SUVs have great features that make them stand out from one another while ensuring both safety and comfort of you and your family. 


But when it comes to figuring out which one is best for your family, how can you know? Your friendly team at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey is here to help you with this comprehensive comparison of these two all-new crossover SUVs.  




When it comes to style, the Nissan Rogue is as daring on the outside as it is on the inside. With split headlights like the ones that come standard on the 2021 models, you'll feel like your car has the bit of flair and personality you want. Nissan packed a wide variety of interior materials such as textured metallic elements on the console and door, as well as beautiful wood trim and soft-touch materials that add that pop you look for in a car. 


However, the Toyota RAV 4 has taken the approach of keeping things as they are with a few aesthetic changes here and there. And even chunkier features that shape the off-road and adventure trims add a little touch of change, but they haven't swayed far from what has been working for past models. 




Nissan packed the power of a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates a thrilling 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque for those drives that you can't resist. With the Rogue S model, you'll be able to get 30 mpg in combined driving, and if you're looking for that all-terrain and weather fun in your Rogue, the AWD system will quickly become your best friend.


While the Toyota RAV 4 has AWD, it's not your traditional AWD system that's available in the Nissan Rogue. For the 2021 RAV 4, Toyota equipped it with the same 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine and 8-speed automatic transmission that directs power right to the front wheels. There is no actual physical driveshaft running to their rear axles; they simply installed an electric motor that provides torque to the rear wheels when you need extra traction. 


Safety and Driver Assistance


There's nothing like an intelligent car that can read the road and help see things that you may not ahead on the road. And with the 2021 Nissan Rogue's revolutionary state of the art and standard ProPilot Assist, you'll have the car that practically drives itself! You'll also have the Safety Shield 360, which helps with lane departure detection, blind-spot, and rear cross-traffic warning systems at your fingertips! Driver attention is a must at all times, but with adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability and lane-centering assistance, you'll feel like you're in the car of the future today! 


With the Toyota RAV 4, you have the option of packing all that technology into your new vehicle, but it doesn't come standard. You'll have to pay to upgrade your RAV 4 to have the blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems. 


Comfort Features


Nissan stepped up its game on the new Rogue models for 2021, with available 8-way power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and smart key access that allows you to keep your remote in your pocket you'll feel as luxurious as you deserve. Premium packages include a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and rear-side window sunshades. With their state-of-the-art infotainment features at your fingertips, you'll be able to go anywhere while listening to your favorite songs! 


While the Toyota RAV 4 has all the similar features, you'll have to pay for upgrades for most of them. And with far less cargo room, your RAV 4 will feel more like a coupe than a crossover.
