By almost any estimation, the lineup of Crossover SUVs in the Nissan family can compete with that of any automaker. In terms of versatility, capability and passenger comfort, Nissan’s impressive lineup continues to redefine all that a Crossover SUV can and should aspire to be. But how do they compare to each other? Three Nissan vehicles--the Rogue, Murano, and Pathfinder--have quickly become among the most popular entries in this increasingly competitive segment, offering Houston-area shoppers three distinct options in their search for a Crossover SUV. So let’s hold them up to the light--The 2014 Nissan Rogue vs. Nissan Murano vs. Nissan Pathfinder.
Redesigned for this model year, the 2014 Nissan Rogue has proven that big things can come in compact packages. To wit: the Rogue features comfortable seating for seven in its S and SV trim levels, an option seldom found in a compact crossover. The Rogue is designed to be equally suited to young families or solitary commuters, offering some of the segment’s finest fuel economy courtesy of its Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The 2014 Nissan Rogue is the ideal entry into the Crossover SUV segment: inexpensive, efficient, spacious, and sporty.
The Murano is frequently described as the Rogue’s bigger brother, and this description isn’t entirely without merit. However, it goes deeper than this. The 2014 Nissan Murano is, quite simply, one of the most sophisticated entries in the Crossover SUV class. Its interior cabin is fitted with only the most upscale materials, and offers executive-level seating for each of its five possible occupants. It also features a powertrain that goes long on power to make for confident acceleration and handling, a 3.5L V6 that is complemented by the responsive Xtronic CVT. All in all, the 2014 Nissan Murano both exquisitely styled and compellingly strong.
The true big brother among Nissan’s Crossover SUVs is the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder, who takes the best elements of both the Rogue and Murano to create one indelible package. With almost 158 cubic feet of passenger volume--the best in its class--and comfortable seating for up to seven passengers, there can be little debate that the Pathfinder is among the most rider-friendly vehicles around. It’s also incredibly capable; the 3.5L V6 produces 260 horsepower, and delivers an EPA-estimated 26 mpg on the highway. So, for the Houston-area shopper looking for the Crossover SUV that delivers on all available fronts, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder is for you.
