With the crossover SUV segment gaining in popularity in recent years, manufacturers have been churning out models that can seem strikingly similar to the others on the lot. And as a result, consumers can be left unsure about how one crossover in the lineup differs from the rest.

That isn’t the case with the 2018 Nissan Rogue and the 2018 Nissan Murano however. These vehicles were designed with two distinct drivers in mind. Let’s break down the differences between the Nissan Rogue vs. the Murano to help you decide which one is right for you.

2018 Nissan Rogue

In short, the Nissan Rogue is a more modest and economical version of the Murano. With an MSRP considerably less than that of the Murano, the Rogue allows shoppers plenty of room for options, accessories, or trim upgrades. And with a combined 29 MPG of fuel economy (compared to 24 combined MPG in the Murano), the Rogue’s cost savings continue throughout the ride.

The Rogue is not only smaller in price but also in size. An exterior body that is shorter, narrower, and lighter than the Murano allows for a more nimble driving experience without sacrificing interior space. Despite the more compact design, the Rogue actually sports more cargo volume, front legroom, and front headroom than the Murano.

Practical and economical no doubt have their place on the lot. But some drivers just like to take the high road, and the 2018 Nissan Murano can get you there.

With significant jumps in horsepower (170 to 260) and torque (175 lb.-ft. to 240 lb.-ft.), the transition from the Rogue to the Murano presents drivers with a more robust on-road experience courtesy of a 3.5L V6 engine.

The interior of the Murano has plenty of upgraded features to keep pace with its performance. A push-button ignition, two extra speakers, and voice-activated navigation are just some of the ways this vehicle separates itself from the Rogue.
