Nissan Rogue vs Murano
When you choose a Nissan SUV, one thing is for certain: you’re going to be afforded exceptional comfort and efficiency.
Nevertheless, between the 2017 Nissan Murano and the 2017 Nissan Rogue, there are a few differences Philadelphia, Lansdale, and Doylestown drivers need to be aware of. Both Nissan SUVs are tremendously comfortable vehicles with plenty of safety features. However, which has the specs that best suits your needs?
To help our Philadelphia, Lansdale, and Doylestown customers distinguish between these two formidable vehicles, our team at Montgomeryville Nissan has put together this helpful Nissan Rogue vs. Murano comparison.
Nissan Murano vs Nissan Rogue: Interior Space
The major difference between the Nissan Rogue and the Murano comes in terms of space. The Nissan Murano is a bigger SUV and equipped with a bigger engine. With 108.1 cubic feet of passenger space total and 32.1 cubic feet of cargo space, passengers and luggage alike will have more room.
The Nissan Rogue is a smaller SUV, but not by much. Rogue passengers will have a little less passenger space with only 105.8 cubic feet. However, their cargo space will increase considerably to 39.3 cubic feet.
The amount of cargo space in the Rogue depends on whether drivers choose to include the third row. While the Murano seats only five passengers, the Rogue can seat up to seven. Adding a third row in the 2017 Nissan Rogue cuts down cargo space from 39.3 to 9.4 cubic feet.
Fortunately, stowing cargo will never be a problem in either vehicle thanks to the Divide-N-Hide® cargo system. This smart feature adds in extra nooks and crannies for you to store all your gear in.
Nissan Rogue vs Nissan Murano Specs
With the Nissan Murano being larger than the Nissan Rogue, the powertrains differ in size as well. The 2017 Nissan Murano features a 3.5L six-cylinder engine capable of generating 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque.
When the available intuitive all-wheel drive (AWD) and Xtronic® continuously variable transmission (CVT) are added to this array, the 2017 Murano can then maintain 28 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.
The 2017 Nissan Rogue was built with more efficiency in mind. The Rogue also features an available AWD and CVT. Since it includes a smaller 2.5L four-cylinder, it can maintain better mileage at 32 mpg highway and 25 mpg city.2 The horsepower is then reduced to 170, however.
In any Nissan vehicle, safety is a top priority, which is why passenger protection is the category where the Murano and Rogue have the most similarities.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded both honors for their high safety in 2017. The Murano receives a TOP SAFETY PICK while the Nissan Rogue receives a TOP SAFETY PICK+.
Both these awards are earned in large part due to the rigid Zone body construction used to build both vehicles. Features like vehicle dynamics control and traction control are then added to the Zone body to enhance handling and prevent accidents from ever occurring. The Zone body includes fortifications such as:
- Front and rear crumple zones
- Hood buckling creases
- High strength steel side-door guard beams
- An advanced airbag system
With a reinforced passenger cabin in both SUVs, you can be certain that the Zone body will absorb and deflect impacts across the entire vehicle. No matter where passengers are seated, they’ll have optimum protection.
Nevertheless, the 2017 Nissan Rogue does include a few more intuitive safety technologies than the Murano. In addition to traction and stability controls, Rogue drivers will also benefit from forward emergency braking, a blind spot warning, and more.
These intuitive features can really take your safety to the next level!
