Nissan Murano vs. Nissan Rogue

Technically speaking, the Nissan Rogue and Nissan Murano belong to different classes of SUVs. The Rogue is a compact SUV, and the Murano a midsize.

So why can the compact Rogue seat seven and the Murano have a smaller storage area?

The answer is, as many test drivers pointed out, that the Rogue is not exactly what it appears to be. Though it has the best gas mileage in its class, it also has the most storage space in its class and more legroom than most competitors, thanks to some slick engineering on the interior.  

Will that be enough for it to topple its larger, more luxurious, more expensive Nissan sibling? You’ll have to click through to find out.
