The compact SUV segment is incredibly competitive. As a result, automakers are increasingly focusing their attention on developing new, cutting-edge compact SUVs that meet the wants and needs of American drivers. These vehicles offer everything that contemporary drivers are looking for: city-friendly maneuverability, SUV capability, and state-of-the-art safety and connectivity technologies. In such a competitive segment, two vehicles particularly stand out: the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2019 Nissan Rogue. Here’s how they stack up in a head-to-head comparison.
Both the 2019 Outlander and 2019 Rogue offer sophisticated, dynamic performance and powertrains. The Outlander GT comes equipped with a 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 engine that pumps out 224 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Rogue offers its max power on its Hybrid trims, which feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine along with an electric motor. This powertrain delivers 176 net horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque.
The Outlander can tow substantially more than the Rogue can. While the Outlander can standardly tow up to 1,500 pounds and has an available towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, the Rogue can only tow up to 1,102 pounds.
While the Outlander offers standard seating for up to 7 passengers, the Rogue only offers seating for up to 5. In addition, the Outlander offers 22.4 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Rogue, making for a roomier, more comfortable drive.
Similarly, the Outlander offers a good amount of cargo space, providing 63.3 cubic feet of room behind the front seats.
The 2019 Outlander offers two spectacular warranties: a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. The 2019 Rogue’s warranties, unfortunately, aren’t nearly as impressive. The 2019 Rogue offers a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
While the 2019 Outlander has a starting MSRP of $24,695, the Nissan Rogue has a starting MSRP of $24,920, making it slightly more expensive than the Outlander.
