Compact SUVs like the Nissan Rogue and the Chevrolet Equinox are a smart choice for all sorts of drivers. They're safe, capable, and offer tons of cargo room. Which one is right for you, though? To help drivers in Port Richey, Bayonet Point, and Jasmine Estates, FL, decide, the team at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey had them face off in this 2020 Nissan Rogue vs. 2020 Chevy Equinox comparison.

Interior Dimensions

A good SUV should have room to relax and lots of storage space. The 2020 Nissan Rogue checks both of those boxes with a big, comfortable cabin. You'll have plenty of room to stretch out when you're behind the wheel. There's 41.6 inches of front headroom and 43 inches of legroom.

You'll also be able to pack everything you need. The trunk features 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room. It's easy to organize your things, too, with the Nissan Divide-N-Hide® cargo system. It lets you create dividers and shelves quickly. To load more, just fold down the back seats and you'll have up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room.

The Chevy Equinox is a slightly smaller SUV. It gives the driver and front passenger just 40 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom. On top of being a tighter squeeze, you won't be able to pack as much. The trunk has just 29.9 cubic feet of space. While it also includes folding second-row seats, they can only give you up to 63.9 cubic feet of cargo room.

Safety Features

The Nissan Rogue gives you peace of mind with a structurally sound design and lots of driver-assistance features. It's built with front and rear crumple zones that can absorb energy if the unexpected happens. Inside, the interior is protected by six airbags. To help prevent accidents, Nissan Safety Shield® 360 comes standard. It includes a variety of smart safety features, such as:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • RearView Monitor

The Chevy Equinox also has six airbags, but its frame doesn't feature any energy-absorbing crumple zones. While it also includes driver-assistance features like Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning aren't available on every trim level.


Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) comes standard on the Nissan Rogue, but Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is available on every trim level. Both drivetrains run on a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers up to 170 horsepower. This powertrain is both sporty and efficient. It can even get up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.i

The Chevy Equinox has a standard 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that also offers up to 170 horsepower. It comes with Front-Wheel Drive, too, but only offers All-Wheel Drive on the upper trim levels. It features similar fuel economy when you're commuting downtown, but with an EPA-estimated 26 city/31 highway MPG, you'll need to make more pit stops if you're on a road trip.
