In a segment as competitive as the mid-size crossover SUV, and in a segment where the 2015 Nissan Rogue has become one of its unquestioned leaders, every so often a model will seem to come out of nowhere to make a credible claim to the crown. The competing 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, an attractive vehicle in its own right, has become increasingly common on the highways and byways of the Houston area. Still, it’s worth asking, how does it compare to the 2015 Nissan Rogue? Let’s look at these two models--the 2015 Nissan Rogue and the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander--in a one-to-one comparison, shall we?
The first order of business is to note where the two models are similar. Both have a near-identical powertrain--a 2.5-liter four-cylinder for the Rogue, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder for the Outlander--and each is capable of housing seven comfortable adult occupants in its spacious cabin. However, this is where the similarities end. Despite the similar powertrains, the Rogue offers its drivers clear advantages in key areas such as horsepower, torque and fuel economy. Additionally, the Rogue boasts extra space in terms of both front and rear legroom. And, since its starting MSRP is almost $500 beneath that of the competing Mitsubishi, it would seem that your mind has been made up for you!
Ever since it received a full redesign prior to the 2014 model year, the Nissan Rogue has been among the most popular vehicles in any class. Now, for the new model year, it returns to the Houston area with a level of efficiency, interior sophistication and style that many competitors are rightly trying to emulate. However, many of these efforts haven’t been particularly fruitful. The Rogue’s best-in-class fuel efficiency and front headroom, available high-intensity LED highlights, and rear seats that recline, slide and tilt forward, Nissan’s versatile crossover SUV is making gains in areas that the competitors haven’t even thought of yet.
