CX-5 vs. Rogue: Which Compact SUV Is Right For You?

The compact SUV class is large and competitive. At about the midpoint of compact SUV pricing, you find the Mazda CX-5 and the Nissan Rogue. If you have about $25,000 to spend, both of these vehicles are worth checking out, though they excel in different areas.

The redesigned 2017 Mazda CX-5 is a driver’s SUV. It handles great, turns great, has more power, and can tow twice as much as the Nissan Rogue. The refreshed 2017 Rogue, on the other hand, has an available third row, a larger and more usable cargo area, and better fuel economy.

The one you choose will likely come down to your driving habits and lifestyle. To help you make that choice, we’ve broken down this competition into a series of categories.
