2017 Nissan Rogue vs. 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

Sport utility vehicles have come a long way over the course of their existence. Years ago, if you wanted an SUV, you had to sacrifice fuel economy, so you knew that your budget could be altered by the expense of always having to gas it up to and from your weekend adventures. SUVs have continued to evolve into more efficient machines thanks to innovators and engineers across the globe who wanted what we all did—an SUV that is powerful and fun, but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to own because of fuel costs. Enter crossovers. These models give you a taste of two delicious worlds. You can enjoy the power and cargo space of an SUV while retaining the efficiency and maneuverability of a sedan or a coupe. This blew the door wide open, and the marketplace is now flooded with these types of vehicles. Some of them break from the pack and stand out among the crowd. Let’s look at the 2017 Nissan Rogue vs the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander.

2017 Nissan Rogue Fuel Economy & Cargo Capacity

Nissan and Mitsubishi are two well-known automakers worldwide, but when you stack up the Rogue against the Outlander, the Rogue pulls ahead. Although horsepower is not the only important factor of an SUV, it is still vital to ensure you can enjoy your adventures off-road and in busy urban environments, and you’ll need a strong engine to do it. The 2017 Nissan Rogue packs 170 horsepower, while the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander can’t quite match it, delivering 166 horsepower. The power of the Rogue does not come at the expense of efficiency. The Rogue can get an estimated 26 city and 33 highway miles per gallon, edging out the Outlander, which gets an estimated 25 city and 30 highway miles per gallon. The power and efficiency are a perfect complement to the vehicle’s cargo capacity which, when the rear seats are folded, opens up to 70 cubic feet of space, again beating the Outlander. To top it off, if you and the crew want a variety of entertainment while on your road trips, you can enjoy SiriusXM Satellite Radio, which comes standard on the Rogue.

The Rogue, true to its name, dares to be different in offering a powerful, efficient, spacious, and entertaining ride. You can truly have your cake and eat it, too.
