2021 Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV-4: Which Vehicle Comes Out on Top?

If you’ve seen Nissan’s latest marketing for the 2021 Nissan Rogue, then you know the vehicle has been “fiercely reimagined.” That’s more than just a clever turn of phrase by a marketing copywriter; it’s the truth! Big changes to the 2021 Rogue make what was already an excellent choice the clear winner in its category. 

Let’s take a look at how the 2021 Nissan Rogue stacks up against the Toyota RAV-4. 

Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV-4 Starting Prices

The entry-level prices for both vehicles are about the same, with the Rogue slightly higher at $26,745 and the RAV-4 at $26,050. 

The Rogue Platinum, the SUV’s top trim level, starts at $36,525, while the RAV-4 Limited starts at $38,247.

Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV-4 Safety

Toyota has always offered impressive safety features, but the changes to the 2021 Nissan Rogue make it tough to beat. The updated version of the popular vehicle comes with impressive standard safety features, including:

  • 10 Standard Airbags
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Easy-Fill Tire Alert
  • Zone Body Construction

One of the most exciting things about the 2021 Nissan Rogue is the availability of ProPilot Assist, a semi-autonomous driving mode that boasts a host of features, such as:

  • Stops and holds the vehicle in place during heavy traffic and then automatically accelerates back up to speed when traffic starts moving
  • Automatically adjusts to the posted speed limit
  • Deploys visual and audible alarms if no hands are on the steering wheel
  • Maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead
  • Speed Adjust by Route slows the vehicle down for off-ramps and tight corners

ProPilot Assist will come standard on the Platinum and will be an option on the SL. 

Nissan Rogue vs. Toyota RAV-4 Tech and Comfort

The new Rogue features a standard 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. A larger 9-inch screen is available on SL and Platinum. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all models, and available updates, such as in-dash navigation and a Bose audio system, are available. The RAV-4 also has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but their display is smaller at 7 inches.

When it comes to comfort, it’s close between the two vehicles, but thoughtful updates that were part of the ground-up Rogue redesign, such as available 3-zone automatic climate control, heated seats, and heated steering wheel, give the 2021 Nissan Rogue an edge that cannot be ignored. 

Many of the features that are important to buyers are basically the same on both vehicles, including fuel economy, cargo space, and fuel tank capacity. Even with the similarities, when you look at all the updates made to the 2021 Nissan Rogue, it’s clear that the best bang for your buck is found with the Rogue.
