2015 Nissan Rogue vs 2015 Mazda CX-5

With the crossover class quickly becoming the most popular style of automobile for car shoppers, it seems as if there are new, untried models being released on a daily basis.  However, one crossover model that has a proven track record of excellence is the Nissan Rogue.  By combining a variety of strengths into one automobile, the Rogue truly exemplifies the reason for the crossover vehicle’s rise in popularity.  One of the Rogue’s chief rivals is also a Japanese import.  Mazda’s CX-5 has attempted to leapfrog the Rogue in popularity and overall quality.  Here is a look at the 2015 Nissan Rogue vs 2015 Mazda CX-5.

The Nissan Rogue is a vehicle that comes with more standard power, plain and simple.  By being built with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, the Rogue is more capable than the base model of the CX-5, which comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.  The Rogue’s 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque overwhelm the CX-5, which is only able to achieve 155 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque.  Surprisingly, however, the CX-5’s lack of power does not translate to better fuel efficiency.

While a smaller, less powerful engine typically points to increased fuel economy, the Mazda CX-5 can only say it performs more efficiently while on the highway.  The Rogue and CX-5 are both able to travel through cities at 26 MPG, which is impressive, given the extra horses and torque the Nissan model is able to call upon.  The presence of a continuously variable-speed automatic transmission helps give the 2015 Rogue both strong power outputs and fuel conservation capacities.

The Rogue is able to deliver some significant advantages through its interior design as well.  With a space-maximizing design, the Nissan Rogue is able to supply travelers with a greater amount of maximum cargo space than what the CX-5 is capable of providing.  Over five cubic feet seperate the two crossover models in terms of maximum cargo space (70 cubic feet for the Rogue; 64.8 cubic feet for the CX-5).  Some technological features also make the Rogue a better choice than the CX-5.  The base model of the Rogue comes with Bluetooth capabilities as a standard feature, but this type of technology is merely optional in the Mazda CX-5.

The 2015 Nissan Rogue is available at Continental Motors.  Come take a test drive today, and see why this version of the Rogue may be the most impressive to date.
