Rogue vs. Murano: Which Nissan Crossover Is Right for You?

Our head-to-head comparisons often pit vehicles in the same category against one another. However, we understand that for some shoppers, that’s not how the buying decision shakes out. For example, if you’re in the market for a compact crossover, the 2019 Nissan Rogue is likely to catch your eye. It is, after all, one of the best-selling vehicles in the category. Even though the Rogue isn’t as powerful or fun to drive as some of its competition – and only places in the middle of our compact SUV rankings – there’s a lot to like about the little ute.

So, let’s say you’re at the Nissan dealership, and the salesperson casually suggests you check out the midsize 2019 Nissan Murano, too. Yes, it’s a bit more expensive than the Rogue, can still only fit the same five passengers, and also has a midpack ranking in its class. Naturally, you wonder if it’s worth the extra money. 

While we can’t help you once you’re on the showroom floor, we’re here to make your research process a little easier. By the end of this slideshow, you’ll have a better idea of which Nissan SUV is best for your needs: the compact Rogue or midsize (and slightly pricier) Murano. We’ll compare each vehicle in the categories that matter most to crossover shoppers, using scores from each model’s full U.S. News review.

Keep in mind that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.
