Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-5 than in the Nissan Rogue. The Nissan Rogue will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda CX-5 as you will with the Nissan Rogue, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mazda CX-5 is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Rogue. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mazda CX-5 and the Nissan Rogue have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-5 is about the same width as the Nissan Rogue. The Mazda CX-5 is slightly shorter than the Nissan Rogue, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Rogue.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mazda CX-5 is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. The Mazda CX-5 has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Rogue.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mazda CX-5 and the Nissan Rogue. The Mazda CX-5 has less cargo space than the Nissan Rogue, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mazda CX-5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue.
