Smaller crossovers like the 2016 Toyota RAV4 and the 2016 Nissan Rogue are popular with drivers throughout Central Florida because they blend power with efficiency, roominess with agility, and features with value. Realizing a crossover’s full advantage, however, depends on picking the right model, and the RAV4 does more than the Rogue. Find out how the two models compare head-to-head before heading to Earl Stewart Toyota for a closer look.

Performance and Towing Capability

Why settle for less power? You will regret it when that extra performance boost is needed. The 2016 Toyota RAV4’s 2.5L four-cylinder engine puts out 176 hp and can tow up to 1500 pounds, while the 2016 Nissan Rogue’s 2.5L four-cylinder engine puts out only 170 hp and limits towing to 1,000 pounds.


Whether you’re driving around Jupiter or West Palm Beach or off on a road trip, it’s always nicer to have more room for passengers and cargo alike. The Toyota crossover’s cabin measures 140.3 cubic feet and promises 38.4 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space, which balloons to 73.4 cubic feet when the rear seat is folded down. Meanwhile, you will feel more cramped in the 2016 Nissan Rogue cabin that measures just 135.9 cubic feet while guaranteeing only 32.0 cubic feet dedicated for cargo and 70.0 cubic feet overall.


There is never a good reason to compromise safety, and the 2016 Toyota RAV4 has been objectively shown to keep you safer. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded this crossover a perfect five-star overall safety rating, as compared to the 2016 Nissan Rogue’s four-star ranking.
