2017 Toyota RAV4


2017 Nissan Rogue

It’s no secret that SUVs and crossovers are popular among Miami car buyers. All throughout Florida, a rivalry exists between the 2017 Toyota RAV4 and the 2017 Nissan Rogue. Drivers are constantly trying to choose between the two, but when you really look into it, it’s obvious the Toyota RAV4 is the superior model. Here, we’ve put together a quick guide to help Miami drivers decide between the 2017 Toyota RAV4 and 2017 Nissan Rogue. The results speak for themselves!

Power and Capability

Power is, of course, a very important factor to Miami drivers when choosing an SUV. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 can produce 176 hp with a 1,500 lb towing capacity. The 2017 Nissan Rogue comes up short in this category, only producing 170 hp with a 1,000 lb towing capacity. Towing capacity and horsepower, too, are also critical components when considering an SUV. Miami drivers want to have the capability to tow and haul whatever they may need. The new RAV4 will allow drivers to bring more with them and have more fun.

Safety as a Priority

It’s not a mystery that Toyota is putting a premium on safety. As proof, Miami shoppers will find the new Toyota RAV4 comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense, which includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 also comes standard with:

  • Vehicle Stability Control
  • Traction Control
  • Anti-lock Brake System
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Smart Stop Technology

It’s obvious the 2017 Toyota RAV4 outshines the Nissan Rogue when it comes to safety. The standard features the RAV4 comes with are only available add-ons with the Rogue. For Miami families who need a vehicle that puts a premium on safety, the winner here is clear.


Fuel Capacity and Pricing

Fuel capacity is important, especially when models get similar MPG. In the case of the RAV4 versus the Rogue, the RAV4 has a 15.9-gallon tank while the Nissan Rogue only has 14.5-gallons. Having over a gallon more in your fuel tank will provide almost 30 more miles on your trip without having to stop. Not only will those extra 30 miles save you money, but when comparably equipped, the RAV4 becomes more affordable. Even though the Nissan Rogue has a lower starting MSRP, the Toyota RAV4 still ends up being the more affordable option for Miami drivers.
