Form and Function on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS the 2018 Nissan Rogue

At first glance, the 2018 Nissan Rogue feels much larger than the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. That's because it is. But take a closer look and you'll find the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek offers the flexibility and functionality to make it even more versatile and capable than the 2018 Nissan Rogue. Durable cladding on the wheel arches and bumper along with more than eight-and-a-half inches of ground clearance and available windshield wiper de-icer - all unavailable on the 2018 Nissan Rogue - mean the Crosstrek can get just about anywhere. A protected rear bumper step, expandable standard roof rails and a 1,500-lb towing capacity on every trim level means you can bring just about anything with you.

Performance Pedigree of the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS the 2018 Nissan Rogue

Compared to the 2018 Nissan Rogue, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek supplies similar engine power and efficiency. But what sets the Crosstrek apart from its bulkier rival is a superior durability and toughness you'll value both off-road and on. Along with the standard, industry-leading Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System - you'll pay a premium for an inferior AWD system on the Rogue - the 2018 Crosstrek boasts Active Torque Vectoring and a limited slip rear differential. You can't get these features on the 2018 Nissan Rogue, and they help the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek grip better on dry roads, wet roads or no road at all. The horizontally-oriented BOXER® engine's ultra-low center of gravity helps, too. With this much toughness and tenacity, it's little wonder that Kelley Blue Book says Subaru builds the longest-lasting crossover on the road today.

Safety for the Whole Family Inside the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek VS the 2018 Nissan Rogue

Both vehicles in our head-to-head comparison were selected by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as 2018 Top Safety Picks. However, the Crosstrek received a higher score for its LATCH-complaint child seat anchors. Additional LATCH hardpoints means it's easier than ever to get a child seat into and out of the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. The available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Pre-Collision Braking. Nissan offers similar active safety features - but to equip a 2018 Rogue with all of them, you'll need to start at the top-end trim level, then add well over $2,000 in additional options. EyeSight® by Subaru can be added to either the Premium or Limited versions of the 2018 Crosstrek for just $1,395. The available Subaru-exclusive X-Mode with Hill Descent Control optimizes your engine and drivetrain for maximum control in poor road conditions, keeping you safe as you venture further off the beaten path.
