2018 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue


Drivers seeking an energetic crossover SUV with plenty of power beneath the hood and technology in the cabin often end up comparing 2018 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue. When they do, they find that only the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is willing to deliver:

  • 1,500-Pound Towing Capacity
  • Limited Slip Differential
  • Standard Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Standard Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)

Limited Slip Differential

Feature Not Available

If the Toyota RAV4’s generous standard output gives it an edge over the Nissan Rogue, it’s the limited slip differential that brings performance to its fullest potential by managing traction for exceptional control. When you need to tow, you’ll have substantially more muscle at your command, plus the peace of mind that comes with a healthy fuel capacity.

Standard Features

It would be a mistake to argue that either the 2018 Nissan Rogue or the 2018 Toyota RAV4 fall flat when it comes to standard amenities, but there’s no denying that Toyota still finds ways to pull ahead.

It’s the only model of the two to offer the following features even with entry-level trims:

  • Six-Speaker Sound System: For immersive sound as you breeze between Canyon Lake and Kyle.
  • Privacy Glass: To keep your space your own even while stuck bumper-to-bumper in the middle of New Braunfels traffic.

Safety Ratings and Technology

The new RAV4 comes with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) as standard, which you won’t find at all on the new Rogue. The TSS-P suite includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

Nissan only provides forward collision warning with automatic braking as standard — everything else requires you to spend more.
