From the weekday carpool lane to the weekend campsite, each SUV is ready for a week’s worth of adventure. Thanks to their efficient engineering and dependable off-road capability, either model can handle just about whatever you throw at it.
To back up their sure-footed confidence, each SUV also comes with available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD), so no matter what the terrain or climate, you can expect a stable and highly confident drive.
When attempting to climb Old York Road in the snow, each SUV relies on a built-in Vehicle Dynamic Control with Traction Control System. Able to constantly monitor tire grip, it can adjust torque distribution to mitigate a spinout.
Taking a weeklong vacation to the shore? Maybe a family ski trip to the Poconos? The 2020 Rogue comes standard with Active Ride Control to help smooth uneven terrain you might encounter along your journey.
Meanwhile, the 2020 Murano offers Active Brake Limited Slip to provide more accurate steering around sharp bends in the road.
While the larger Nissan Murano packs more RPMs under the hood, the Nissan Rogue does have a unique trick up its sleeve: Eco/Sport Mode.
For everyday commuting, switch the SUV into special Eco Mode to help extend your time between fuel-ups. When properly configured, the 2020 Rogue earns an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway/29 combined MPG.1
By comparison, the 2020 Murano manages to bring the heat without sacrificing your fuel tank. When properly configured, it achieves an EPA-estimated 20 city/28 highway/23 combined MPG.2.
When it comes to fitting your active life, each SUV proves it’s more than up to the challenge.
Inside the 2020 Rogue, you’ll find comfortable seating for up to five adults across 105.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. Behind the second row, there’s 39.3 cubic feet of cargo space that easily expands up to 70 cubic feet when the available EZ FLEX® Seating System with 2nd-row split folding/sliding/reclining seat with pass-through is lowered.
This makes it easy for an active family to fit a weekend’s worth of camping gear without losing space up front.
Likewise, the 2020 Murano makes gearing up for the big weekend tailgate or long road trip a breeze thanks to its 140.2 cubic feet of interior volume, including 67 cubic feet of available cargo space. In terms of head- and legroom, even your taller passengers won’t mind climbing into the back seat of either SUV:

While you’ll find the Murano offers exclusive goodies like rear air conditioning vents, adjustable ambient LED lighting, and climate-controlled front seats, both models are loaded with similar amenities that include:

Inside each SUV, you’ll enjoy the power and convenience of the Nissan Connect™ infotainment system that features everything from Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ to Nissan Voice Recognition for both navigation and audio.
Exhibiting the latest in active safety technology, this suite provides drivers with increased confidence to take on the unexpected. Standard for both models, this system employs cameras and sensors to keep you aware of the moving world around you.
It can even take control in the event you lose focus. With features like Intelligent Cruise Control and Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, each SUV can adjust speed and apply the brakes to help avoid a collision.
