2016 Subaru Forester vs 2016 Nissan Rogue

Serving Tallahassee, Monticello, and Crawfordville, FL

Both the 2016 Subaru Forester and Nissan Rogue offer buyers in and around Tallahassee, FL compact SUVs loaded with features at very affordable prices. Not only do both of these vehicles offer plenty of cargo space and exceptional versatility, they are both quite fuel efficient. To help you choose between the two and determine which would make the better choice, Proctor Subaru has created this comparison.

Performance

One of the hardest things about comparing the 2016 Subaru Forester and the Nissan Rogue is that they both seem to have similar powerplants, at least at first appearances. Both offer 2.5 liter four cylinder engines that produce 170 horsepower and have similar torque ratings. However, this is where any real similarity ends as the Forester has a Boxer style engine that has been developed by the engineers at Subaru as a way of balancing power, performance, and fuel economy.

When combined with the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, helps keep the Forester securely on the road under practically any driving conditions. While the Forester comfortably powers its way up hills and into the passing lane, the Nissan Rogue seems to struggle and gives the impression of being a little underpowered. The Forester gives buyers a choice between a six-speed manual gearbox and a CVT, which is the only available transmission in the Rogue.

Interior

The interior of both the 2016 Subaru Forester and Nissan Rogue offer plenty of comfortable space for up to five adults. Not only do both offer plenty of room for everybody, you will find they both have plenty of cargo space. In fact, the Forester offers 34.3 cubic feet of cargo spaces with the rear seats up and 74.7 cubic feet with them folded down. The Rogue comes in a close second with 32 and 70 cubic feet.

When it comes to keeping everyone entertained on the journey, both the Forester and the Rogue offer full Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling and streaming your favorite music. They also offer USB connections and top of the line audio systems. The Forester offers Subaru's STARLINK 8.2-inch infotainment touchscreen complete with a suite of apps including hands free texting and a rearview camera.

Safety

Since the first Subaru vehicle came to the United States, the company has enjoyed a reputation for being one of the safest cars on the road. Both vehicles offer a slew of standard safety features including four-wheel antilock disc brakes, electronic traction and stability controls, and plenty of airbags to keep everyone safe in the unfortunate event of an accident. The Forester also includes a driver's knee airbag and a rearview camera.

Among the many available safety features found in the Forester are the STARLINK Safety Plus telematics system. This system offers automatic collision notification and emergency assistance.
