Nissan Rogue SV vs. Lexus RX350

UntitledMost of us associate the words “luxury” and “expensive” as quickly as we associate “peanut butter” and “jelly.” However, what if I were to tell you that you can get luxury without the enormous price tag? That’s exactly what Nissan does for our shoppers. We give you cost-effective vehicles that rank just as high on the quality scale as vehicles that most people wish they could afford. In this comparison of the Nissan Rogue SV and the Lexus RX350, you’ll see that you don’t always have to sacrifice to have a nice, safe vehicle.

The Nissan Rogue SV has  great fuel economy with 26 MPG in the city, 33 MPG on the highway, and 28 MPG combined. The RX350 falls a little behind with 19 MPG in the city, 26 MPG on the highway, and 22 MPG combined.

The Rogue is made of a galvanized steel/aluminum composite, while the RX350 is made of only galvanized steel, making the frame a little more rigid.

The Nissan Rogue has a split-bench rear seat, and the RX has a full bench. This makes the Rogue much easier to handle when trying to utilize the space in the back. For instance, if you had to pack a ladder in the Rogue, you could fold one seat down, while also leaving your passenger a seat to sit in.

The Nissan Rogue SV comes standard with almost all the features that the Lexus RX350 does, excluding some mirror lighting and extra speakers. However, the Rogue has a tire-specific low pressure warning, while the Lexus will just indicate low tire pressure (not showing which tire needs attention).

Nissan has 1st, 2nd, and 3rd row curtain airbags, while Lexus has only 1st and 2nd row.

The interior cargo volume of a Nissan Rogue is 39.3 cubic feet, while Lexus has 18.4 cubic feet. The maximum interior cargo volume of the Nissan Rogue is 70 cubic feet, and for the Lexus RX350, it is only 56.3 cubic feet. Also, front headroom is a key feature in comfort for the driver, and Nissan comes out on top with 41.6 inches, while Lexus has 39.4 inches.

Starting Price: Last but certainly not least, the Nissan Rogue SV has a starting price of $24,740 while the Lexus RX350 starts out at $43,300.

So, who says you can’t have quality without paying a large quantity?

Nissan Altima versus the Competition

When looking for a new vehicle, one of the processes most of us go through is a comparison between cars. Finding the vehicle that has the best combination of features for your and your situation is a must. Here’s a summary of the Nissan Altima versus the competition when it comes to the key features.

Performance

The 2016 Nissan Altima saves fuel at 39 miles per gallon. The 2016 Honda Accord and 2016 Toyota Camry are right behind it with 37 MPG and 35 MPG, respectively.

Power

The 2016 Nissan Altima outperforms the competition with a maximum 270 HP. The 2016 Toyota Camry tops out at 268 HP, and the 2016 Hyundai Sonata maxes at 245 HP.

Interior

The 2016 Nissan Altima has a ratio of Front Headroom to Front Legroom of 40/45 inches. The 2016 Honda Accord has a ratio of 39.1/42.5 inches while the 2016 Toyota Camry has a ratio of 38.8/41.6 inches.

Safety

The 2016 Nissan Altima has many safety features, but the Class-Exclusive Predictive Forward Collision Warning is like having a built-in crystal ball. By monitoring the distance and velocity of the vehicle in front of you, and the one in front of that one too, Altima’s PFCW radar sensors see what your eyes can’t. This can alert you to potential risks ahead. As for the 2016 Honda Accord, 2016 Toyota Camry, and 2016 Hyundai Sonata… well, no superpowers for them quite yet.

Shop

Something else that the 2016 Nissan Altima has (and the competition doesn’t) is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Class-Exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert. A symbol on the dash will alert you when your tire pressure is low, even letting you know which specific tire is down. When you’re filling your tires, a friendly beep of the horn tells you when you are at the right pressure.

So, how does the Nissan Altima score in your book?
