You need an SUV that can do it all. From school drop-offs to summer camping trips, the RAV4 and the Rogue can keep up with where you need and want to go. Which SUV offers the more well-rounded performance, though?
While you might be dropping off the kids at football practice, you’ll still want some extra power in the engine. Both the RAV4 and the Rogue have peppy powertrains under their hoods, but the RAV4 offers a bit more oomph, producing 203 horsepower. The Rogue follows close behind, achieving just 201 horsepower.
Additionally, the 2023 Toyota RAV4 offers seven hybrid trims to help drivers charge towards an eco-friendly future. These hybrid SUVs are great for errands, taking the kids to and from school, or driving long stretches of highway—all on a single tank of gas. The Rogue goes without a comparable engine.
If you’d like to hitch up a boat or trailer for your next family vacation, then the 2023 RAV4 is your ride. With a maximum towing capacity up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, you can bring everything with you. Unfortunately, the Rogue falls short here, with a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
The Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue both offer cabins made of high-quality, soft-touch materials. Still, what you’re most likely more concerned about is how much space each vehicle offers and how much flexibility they allow.
Look at the chart to compare the RAV4 and the Rogue’s interior dimensions:

Based on their measurements, both the RAV4 and the Rogue offer ample space for your precious cargo. You’ll have abundant room when you need to haul all the fishing equipment, tents, and sleeping bags for your camping trip. However, with the Toyota having the larger cargo hold, you’ll have more space flexibility.
Now that we’ve seen that the 2023 Toyota RAV4 and the 2023 Nissan Rogue offer ample cargo space to carry any items you may need, it’s time to discuss storage and utility. The RAV4 makes it easier to keep your cargo where you initially laid it with these standard and available accessories:
- Height-adjustable rear cargo area deck board
- Cargo area tonneau cover
- Cargo liner
- Cargo area deckside-mounted storage net
While the Nissan has standard cargo tie-downs and its own unique storage solution, the Toyota offers more accessories to organize your cargo.
Both models also offer foot-activated power liftgates to help you when your hands are full of grocery bags, presents, or your bundle of joy.
The RAV4 and the Rogue have power and space. What about technology? When you slide into the driver’s seat of either model, you’ll find a high-tech cockpit that is easy-to-use and features helpful technology to aid your commutes.
Before you embark on your next road trip or morning commute, remember to sync your smartphone to your RAV4 or Rogue. While both models offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, these integrations are wireless on the Toyota. So, you can boot up your driving playlist, your favorite news station, or your latest podcast without the hassle of a cord.
The Rogue has wireless pairing available with an upgrade.
When you need to follow directions to the new restaurant in town, it’s best that you drive a model with a big infotainment display. Fortunately, the Toyota and the Nissan both make an 8-inch display standard!
With an upgrade, the RAV4 takes the lead with its available 10.5-inch display. Upgrading the Rogue’s infotainment setup grants you a 9-inch display, and that’s as big as it gets.
While you can see that both the Toyota RAV4 and the Nissan Rogue are excellent SUVs for you and your family, we think the RAV4’s well-balanced performance and cutting-edge technology make it worth the test drive.
