Power and Performance: Forester vs Rogue

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard on every new Forester model, but it's a pricey add-on for the Rogue
  • Standard horsepower between the two is nearly identical, with both offering 170 horsepower; however, the Forester's available turbocharged 2.0-liter blows that number out of the water
  • Thanks to the Subaru Forester's recent advancements, fuel economy for the pair is nicely matched: 26/32 for the Forester, 26/33 for the Rogue. Both are very fuel-efficient

Features and Options: Forester vs Rogue

  • The Nissan Rogue does offer available seating for seven--but since its dimensions are nearly identical to the Forester, the rear seats are really only suitable for small children, and you lose nearly all of your cargo space
  • If you like open-air feeling, you'll love the Forester's available panoramic power moonroof--the Rogue uses a two-piece dual pane system
  • The Forester offers more options for less, with features like heated seats and wipers, but still costs less than the Rogue when comparably-equipped

Safety and Security: Forester vs Rogue

  • Subaru's all-wheel-drive system was built to be truly symmetrical, giving you smoother and more balanced handling on the road--Rogue's was not
  • The Rogue is a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS. But the Forester? That's a Top Safety Pick PLUS for the 2017 model
  • In foul weather, over rough roads, or in an emergency situation, the Forester's 8.7 inches of ground clearance gives you extra freedom of movement than the Rogue's 7.4 inches
