2017 Nissan Murano vs 2017 Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Murano and the Nissan Rogue--the two best-selling crossovers within the brand and two of the best in the entire crossover segment. Both are going to make exceptional family vehicles, but depending on what’s most important to you, the differences in the features, detail, and design are what will separate the two and help to make your decision.

Even though the 2017 Nissan Murano is the slightly larger option of the two crossovers, classified as midsize, it does not offer a third row of seating, unlike the smaller, compact Rogue. The Rogue can seat up to seven passengers while the Nissan Murano remains a five passenger vehicle.

Although both are high quality vehicles, the Nissan Murano is not only the larger but the more expensive option as well. It competes with luxury badge vehicles while remaining an affordable option to many. As for the Rogue, it’s classified as compact and therefore is less expensive because it also carries a smaller engine.

What’s the deal here? We said that the Nissan Rogue is the smaller crossover of the two, and yet it can seat more passengers and has three more feet of cargo space. The extra space in the Murano isn't going to waste; it’s being used to create even more personal space for each passenger, ensuring that everyone is comfortable, even if they’re stuck riding in the middle back seat.

When it comes to loading and unloading cargo, both the Nissan Murano and the Rogue feature a power liftgate that can be opened by hitting the button on the key fob, dashboard, or the hatch. The rear seats in both vehicles can also be split and folded down to make way for larger, more awkwardly shaped cargo.

In order to protect all passengers as well as cargo, the Nissan Rogue and Murano both offer layers of Nissan Safety Shield technologies. At the very core, both vehicles’ cabins are filled with airbags, but crash prevention systems are also available, which include: Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, and others. To learn more about these technology systems or to speak with a Glendale Nissan team member, we would like to welcome you to not only get in touch but to also come by and take either of these crossovers for a test drive.
