Passenger & Cargo Room

The Nissan Rogue is designed to offer enough room for you to stretch out and pack everything you need. It gives you plenty of space behind the wheel with 41.6 inches of headroom and 43 inches of legroom. The Chevy Equinox is a little smaller. With 40 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom, it may feel a bit cramped for certain drivers.

Whether you're running to the store or packing for a trip, you'll need to have enough room for all your bags. The Rogue has you covered with 39.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. It also makes it easy to keep everything organized. The Nissan Divide-N-Hide® cargo system lets you create cargo area dividers and shelves. If you ever need to pack more, you can fold down the second-row seats and get up to 70 cubic feet of cargo room.

The Chevy also has folding seats, but it comes with a smaller trunk. There's only 29.9 cubic feet of space and no collapsible shelves and dividers. Even with the back row folded, it can't carry as much with only 63.9 cubic feet of cargo room.

Safety Features

To make sure you stay safe, the Nissan Rogue was built with front and rear crumple zones. If you're ever in an accident, they'll absorb energy and direct it away from the interior. To help prevent accidents, Nissan Safety Shield® 360 comes standard. It monitors what's around your SUV with driver-assistance features, such as:

  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

The Chevy Equinox doesn't have the same structurally sound design. While it does come with some driver-assistance features, technology like Blind Spot Warning and Lane Departure Warning doesn't come standard.


Under the hood, the Nissan Rogue runs on an efficient 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. It gets up to 170 horsepower and offers up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway MPG.Front-Wheel Drive comes standard, but Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available on every trim level.

The Chevy's 1.5L 4-cylinder engine also offers up to 170 horsepower, but it's not quite as efficient on long drives. It gets up to an EPA-estimated 26 city/31 highway MPG. It also comes with Front-Wheel Drive, but it doesn't offer All-Wheel Drive on every trim.
