Interior Dimensions and Fuel Efficiency in the 2020 Nissan Rogue Crossover SUV

The performance of the 2020 Nissan Rogue provides a fantastic combination of power and efficiency. Offering 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, you can expect up to 26 city mpg*, 33 highway mpg*, and 29 combined mpg* inside the Rogue. While the engines available with the 2020 Mazda CX-5 are a bit stronger, CX-5 drivers won’t enjoy the luxury of savings in both gas and emissions. Not only that, but the 2020 Nissan Rogue will include the standard 2-speed Xtronic® CVT, an advanced and innovative transmission that prioritizes both increasing the smoothness of transitions and reducing the amount of fuel consumed in the process.

Regarding the size of the cabin, the 2020 Nissan Rogue comes on top. Passengers in the front row will enjoy much more legroom and headroom. While the CX-5 does provide a bit more space to those in the back, the Rogue still provides a generous amount of legroom and headroom so adults can feel comfortable. Planning a move? Shopping for large items like furniture? You will have a much easier time loading up the Rogue as this crossover offers 70.0 cubic feet of space with the second-row seats folded. Meanwhile, you may be forced to cram items or find another option of transport as the Mazda CX-5 only provides up to 59.6 cubic feet.
