2019 Nissan Rogue vs. 2019 Nissan Murano: Worth the Upgrade?

2019 Nissan Murano
2 of 15


Winner: 2019 Nissan Rogue

Since we’re comparing a compact crossover to a midsize crossover – and both from the same manufacturer – it stands to reason that the smaller of the two has the lower price. Indeed, the compact Nissan Rogue wins the overall price battle. Still, a little more explanation is justified.

The Rogue starts at $25,020, which isn’t all that much of a bargain for the class. In fact, if we take a look at the four competitors at the top of our compact SUV rankings, most are cheaper than the Rogue. The Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5, tied for first place, start at $24,450 and $24,350, respectively. The Subaru Forester and Toyota RAV4 are tie for third place. The Forester also undercuts the Rogue, starting at $24,295, and the RAV4 is a little more expensive, at $25,650.

On the other hand, the Murano – with a starting price of $31,370 – is more of a bargain relative to its class. In fact, it’s the winner of our 2019 Best 2-Row SUV for the Money award. It undercuts the top-ranked 2020 Kia Telluride ($31,690) and the tied-for-third-place 2020 Hyundai Palisade ($31,550) and 2019 Mazda CX-9 ($32,280). So, even though the Rogue is your best bet if price is your biggest consideration, this category goes to show that comparing vehicles across segments complicates matters a little bit.
