Drivers know that Nissan offers some of the most versatile and well-equipped crossovers and SUVs around, including the 2020 Nissan Rogue and 2020 Nissan Murano. These two models offer spacious 5-passenger seating, expandable cargo areas and an array of advanced Nissan technologies that are designed to enhance your drive and lifestyle.
If you're intrigued by Nissan's lineup of sporty SUVs, then you're not alone. The new Rogue compact SUV continues to be a favorite within its segment, and the Murano mid-size crossover SUV delivers premium performance at an affordable price.
Motorists in search of a 5-passenger SUV may find that both the 2020 Rogue and 2020 Murano suit their needs and preferences, but these two Nissan models differ in plenty of ways that could mean that one is more ideal for you and your family.
The team at Cherokee County invites drivers from throughout the Canton, Georgia, area and beyond to shop and visit our dealership in Holly Springs to discover both the new Rogue and Murano lineups. But first, see how these Nissan SUVs compare so that you have a better idea of the main differences between these 5-passenger vehicles.
While the 2020 Nissan Rogue and 2020 Nissan Murano compete in separate segments, they both offer impressive interior space, cargo volume and standard and available features. The compact Rogue is big on cargo capacity, offering 39.3 cubic feet behind its second row and up to a maximum of 70 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded. In fact, the Rogue boasts greater cargo capacity than its stablemate, the Murano!
The 2020 Rogue may offer a bit more space for cargo, but the mid-size Murano grants all five passengers more seating area, as the Murano's total passenger volume is greater than the Rogue's. The Murano's longer wheelbase and wider track translate to more room for passengers, which could mean even more comfort for longer journeys.
On the performance and efficiency fronts, these two Nissan SUVs differ, with the compact Rogue offering a 170-hp inline 4-cylinder engine that returns up to 33 mpg in highway driving. The more powerful 2020 Murano gets a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that boasts up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg highway rating. With its 260 hp, the new Murano is the more capable performer when it comes to brisk acceleration and hauling or towing.
Nissan's 2020 Rogue is the more affordable option and is a smart choice for drivers and families who prioritize price, cargo capacity and fuel efficiency. The more upscale 2020 Murano is always there for motorists seeking enhanced power and performance, matched with more available luxury touches.
