2018 Nissan Murano vs 2018 Nissan Rogue

Serving Warsaw, Elkhart, and Fort Wayne, IN

There are several considerations that often come into play when it comes to choosing a new vehicle. However, not all consumers shop for their next car with the same considerations in mind. Some look for attributes such as reliability, fuel economy and durability over various types of terrain. Others shop with such things in mind as the car’s appearance, the beauty of the interior and the bells and whistles of its technological capabilities.

Nissan, a major player in the car manufacturing arena, has implemented everything that most people look for in a new car and instilled those qualities in two of its most popular models: the Rogue and the Murano. For those who may be wondering which model would best suit their needs, let’s look at how they compare with each other.

Performance

While both the Murano and the Rogue are classified as SUV’s (sports utility vehicle), the two perform differently. One reason is the difference in sizes between them. Considered the larger of the two, the Murano has a 3.5 liter, V-6 engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that provides maximum power as needed. The Murano’s engine delivers 260 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. All of this combines to provide a ride that is smooth and comfortable.

The Rogue has a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder for 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. It also utilizes a continuously variable transmission but is only available as an automatic and not manual transmission.

Appearance

The Murano’s sleek appearance combines the beauty of its flowing profile with the efficiency of aerodynamics. The body appears to continuously meld from the signature “V-motion” grille to the cabin to the rear with a legendary “floating” roofline that complements the entire look.

The Rogue, while smaller than the Murano, still manages to achieve an attractive exterior by incorporating the same “V-motion” grille into its body style. With a smaller wheelbase than the Murano, the Rogue has a smaller, sportier appearance.

Safety

In addition to the safety features that Nissan has famously included in both models in the past, the company is announcing new and exciting additions for 2018. Standard safety features on the 2018 Murano will include:

  • Driver and passenger air bags, including front and rear head air bags
  • Front side air bag
  • 4-wheel ABS
  • Electronic stability control
  • Daytime running lights

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has rated the 2018 Rogue as “Good” after safety testing the model for results of various types of impact crashes.
