2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5

2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5

Elusive, fearless, and downright breathtaking; these are just a few of the characteristics that come to mind when thinking about a rogue. When Nissan created its very own Rogue, the design team was determined to build a vehicle that would evoke the same thoughts. One with next-level fuel economy ratings, a seemingly endless list of standard and available features, and an immaculate cargo capacity. As our 2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5 comparative chart below captures, all of these goals—as well as countless others—were accomplished.

According to fuel economy estimates from the EPA, the 2018 Nissan Rogue can earn up to 26 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 30 mpg on combined roads.*1 As the design team had hoped, these estimates are indeed a level above those of the competition. Falling two miles short on the highway and combined roads—as well as one mile short in the city—the 2018 Mazda CX-5 simply can't keep up in terms of fuel economy. Consequentially, its driving range is also a level below that of the Rogue. With a full tank of gas, the Nissan Rogue can drive up to 20 more miles than the Mazda CX-5.

Key Differences – Nissan Rogue vs Mazda CX-5

For some consumers, technology can make or break a deal even more than fuel economy. In the case of the 2018 Nissan Rogue vs 2018 Mazda CX-5 comparison, the key technological difference between the two is the availability of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. In the 2018 Nissan Rogue, music lovers will burst into song and dance when they realize that Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ come as standard features in every single trim. Mazda customers, on the other hand, will bow their heads in silence because neither of these state-of-the-art systems are available in the 2018 Mazda CX-5. A car ride without your favorite music is like a pizza without your favorite toppings; it gets the job done, but it could've been so much better.

In addition to great fuel economy ratings and must-have features, the 2018 Nissan Rogue is also proud to provide its owners with an exceptionally cavernous cargo capacity. With up to 70 cubic feet available in the rear of the vehicle, you and your crew should be able to fit virtually anything that you might like to bring along with you on your travels. With your favorite tunes coming through the speakers, a full tank of gas, and an ample amount of cargo space at your disposal, what will you bring, what will you do, and where will your 2018 Nissan Rogue take you?
