It's the Battle of the Compact SUV

-

Both the Nissan Rogue and Volvo XC40 hold their own in the compact SUV market with their style and substance, but we took the time to break down the differences to see which vehicle was more worth the investment. 
-
2021 Nissan Rogue
-
The new Nissan Rogue offers a handsome new look, high-tech interior, standard active-safety features, and ample luggage space. Inside, the new top-spec Platinum wows with its digital instrument cluster, 9-inch touchscreen, available head-up display, and upscale finishes. Lesser trims are not as well-equipped but include an 8-inch display, a roomy back seat, and plenty of luggage space. The 2.5-liter engine has slightly more power with 181 horses and is again paired with a CVT. The duo can still drone under hard acceleration, and drivers looking for more grunt are out of luck as this is the only engine choice. Fuel economy is 29 mpg with FWD and 28 with AWD. The Rogue comes with an impressive list of active-safety features, all standard, and offers a sophisticated semi-automated driving feature as part of its Pro Pilot Assist package. The downside is that there is only one powertrain option, audible engine noise, and not the best when it comes to going off-road.

2021 Volvo XC40
-
The new Volvo XC40 offers a choice of two engines, an available EV version, smart and sophisticated style, standard active-safety features, and better-than-average towing capacity. The 2021 Volvo XC40 distills the essence of the brand’s appealing larger SUVs into a smaller but still stylish package. Volvo also offers a unique subscription program as an alternative to leasing. The interior is surprisingly roomy and full of clever details. Like other Volvos, a vertical touchscreen is utilized, and physical controls are sparse. A 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder comes in two strengths. The 184-horsepower T4 version comes only with front-wheel drive. The 248-horsepower T5 is paired with AWD and can tow 3,500 pounds. The T4 averages 26 mpg, barely beating the T5’s 25 mpg.
-
What really sets the two autos apart is the battery-powered XC40 Recharge P8 AWD. It’s blisteringly quick with 402 horsepower with a range of 208 miles. The Recharge comes in a single trim level while the T4 and T5 are offered as the Momentum, R Design, and Inscription. Even the base Momentum includes leather, a digital instrument cluster, and a 9-inch vertical touchscreen. Also standard is a full slate of active-safety features.
