Nissan Rogue vs Toyota RAV4: Advantages

  • Starting Price: The Nissan Rogue begins well under $30,000 and drivers near Simpsonville, SC who buy this SUV enjoy more standard features for the money.

The Toyota RAV4 starts out less than $30,000 but its base trim is almost $1,000 more than the Rogue and its AWD trims cost even more.
  • Efficiency: Both of these SUVs share the same fuel economy numbers, but the Rogue's efficiency is aided even more by its standard aluminum wheels, which lower drag considerably and increase fuel economy over the long-term.
