Premium Performance

Enjoy exceptional power with the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with 152 horsepower on the 2.0L engine. This is slightly more than the 141 horsepower on the Nissan for better performance. You also get the option of either a six-speed manual transmission with overdrive or a seven-speed CVT with overdrive while the Nissan only offers a two-speed CVT with the base model.

The Subaru also offers a significant tighter turning radius at 17.7 feet compared to 18.5 feet on the Nissan for easier maneuverability in tight spaces.

Exceptional Safety

The one area where the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek stood out was with the passenger frontal crash with four stars as compared to two stars for the Rogue. The Subaru also includes a driver knee airbag which the Rogue doesn't have. More optional safety features are available on the Crosstrek as well, such as forward collision warning and lane departure warning.

Premium Comfort

Even though you want a compact SUV for the efficiency, you don't want to feel cramped. Both models offer similar room for the driver and front passenger to stretch out. Where the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek shines is with the rear passengers. Rear legroom is 36.5 inches compared to 33.4 inches for the Nissan. Rear hip room is 55.2 inches for the Crosstrek while the Rogue maintains a tighter space at 46.9 inches.
