2016 Nissan Rogue vs. 2016 Nissan Murano

2016 Nissan Rogue vs. 2016 Nissan Murano crossovers towing cargo performance

The crossover vehicle market has fast become the place to be for prospective shoppers, as it combines nice fuel economy with power and cargo room. Nissan clued into this quite some time ago and has been making some of the best crossovers money can buy, with expressive features, powerful engines and enticing features to go along with top-notch safety. Two such crossovers are perhaps the most popular, the sport-sized 2016 Nissan Rogue and the mid-sized 2016 Nissan Murano. Whether you like top fuel economy for a crossover or an expansive cargo area, you'll find the ideal model as we take a look at both. And don't forget what's under the hood; the 2016 Rogue comes with 170 HP in all three model options, while the 2016 Murano roars into the picture with 260 HP across all four of its model options.

The 2016 Rogue is a little lighter on its toes, with a sedan-like average model weight of 3,500 pounds, but it also has the ability to seat up to seven passengers if you select an S or SV model with the Family Package. The 2016 Murano is a little larger, but is about 150 pounds smaller than in 2015, with an average model weight of 3,750 pounds. Another nice by-product of this weight reduction is the 2016 Murano will also get about 20 percent better gas mileage, to the tune of about 25 mpg city, 32 mpg highway. The Rogue's lighter frame enables it to get a slightly better 26 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, but both will save you money compared to other crossovers.

Another cool aspect of these Nissan crossovers is they both were named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick for 2016, with the Murano garnering the additional distinction of being a Top Safety Pick+. Either way you look at it, the vehicles have been tested and they are among the best of their class at keeping passengers safe from impact. The Rogue comes with four speakers in base S models, but climbs all the way up the mountain to a nine-speaker Bose audio system in top-of-the-line SL models. The Murano tops out at an even-more-impressive 11 speakers in SL and Platinum models. Besides which, both the Rogue and the Murano have Navigation and Mobile Apps available in certain models, a next-level blend of features that syncs your phone up with the ability to see traffic patterns and check local attractions or restaurant options.

Both of these Nissan crossovers is a nice blend of power, fuel economy and cargo versatility; which one you pick depends on how much power and size you would like for your vehicle.
