The 2017 Nissan Rogue vs. The 2017 Toyota RAV4
With their combination of commanding driving positions, excellent fuel economy, affordable price tags, and all-weather performance – it’s no wonder why so many drivers throughout the Okanagan Valley prefer compact SUVs. And two of the most popular are the new 2017 Nissan Rogue, and its arch-nemesis the 2017 Toyota RAV4 – but which one is best?

In the end it’s a tough battle, with both competitors putting up a good fight. The RAV4 offers drivers a larger standard infotainment screen, along with a slightly more powerful engine, but ultimately falls short. The 2017 Nissan Rogue provides families across the Okanagan Valley with better fuel economy, more cargo space, as well as the option to carry more people with its third-row seating. The Rogue also offers more advanced safety features (making it an IIHS 2017 Top Safety Pick+), as well as more comfort features like intelligent cruise control. Add in the fact that the 2017 Rogue’s base price is over $1000 cheaper than the RAV4’s, and you have yourself a winner!
